After a lovely dinner of baked macaroni in red and bechamel sauce, strawberry cheesecake and orange soda, we discussed some bible passages about love. We looked at God’s command to his disciples in John to love one another as this will show the world that you are in Christ. It’s a very simple verse but we discussed how it was a change-maker and challenge to a Christian to live a life worthy of the calling we receive. We discussed the Good Samaritan as well and the famous love verse, discussing our struggles with loving people and which part of the verse is really hard for us and how Christ helps us by being the perfect model for us.
We had a first timer to our study, and he said he’d come back for the food, company and maybe the spiritual food (he laughed at that). May God continue to work in this group. A few months ago, I was battling God on this because I was getting busy with school and work and I felt like I wasn’t in a good place emotionally. But I’m trusting Him on this and letting Him lead, because like the lecrae song, I’m the background and He’s the lead. It’s great to see the understanding and fellowship going on. It’s great seeing our youngest blossom and just be on fire about this and that she tries to drive back to study with us and lead worship.
Dear Lord, You said in your word that when two or three gather in Your name, You are there in the midst of them. We pray for our group that you safeguard us, keep our doctrine biblical and help us always have love for each other. You know who are Yours and may you soften hearts and humbly break us so that we become surrendered to your saving grace and lordship in our lives. Thank you for Your love, for Your word and Your work.
