Refreshed through our Community Group

We prayed for these folks in our group who were not physically with us, but were on our hearts.  We thanked God for them, and praised Him for His goodness toward them.  We thanked God for a family from our church who is at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville.  They also had a new addition to their family over the weekend.  We prayed for this family, even though several in our group do not know them.  This is one of the joys of our community group.  We pray together for people we all know, and for people we do not all know.  The joy is that we pray together, as a group. We talked about the sermons from the past two weeks, and how we can better apply these messages in our own lives.  How our discipline in living the 3 most important Spiritual Disciplines- God’s Word, prayer, confession of sin– will result in our abiding in Jesus Christ, which will lead to our growing in the joy of obeying God.  One leads to the next. The guys went to another room and we shared how we are doing in these 3 critical Spiritual Disciplines…..where we are... read more
