MCF – Gagetown group – study & prayer

Good morning,

Ok, so we’ve seen that our faith is only grounded in a relationship with God’s Son, Jesus Christ. Nothing we can do will get us close to God but through Jesus. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Read John 7:25-39 (focus on 37-38 then 39)

NOTE ON 7:37 Jesus’ invitation refers back to OT prophetic passages such as Isa. 55:1 and Isa. 12:3. Thirsts. That is, “thirsts” for God To come to Jesus and drink means to believe in him, to enter into a trusting, ongoing personal relationship with him.

Study group questions…

What does ‘drink’ describe? How can we allow the Holy Spirit make a bigger impact on our lives?

What are the two things Jesus tells people to do in order to quench their spiritual thirsts?

Verse of the Day – Proverbs 19:20-21
Listen to counsel and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter days. There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand.

Blessings All!
Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS… 
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it, in Jesus’ name…Amen!

MCF – Gagetown group – study & prayer

Good morning,

I think it’s time to fire up the wood stove! Only here can we go from hot days to frost warnings in a matter of 3 days LOL. I hope you all had a great week and I pray that you all have a wonderful and safe weekend in our Lord’s light… Amen!

Now, you may be thinking, “what’s with this topic of faith vs. sight?” My point is… doing things on our own (by sight or works) is not the walk of a Christian. We walk by faith. Faith in Christ is what makes you righteous in Gods eyes (2 Corinthians 5 verse 21).  With faith in Christ, he will never leave us or forsake us. Faith will only be possible if you believe that Jesus is who He says He is. Let’s look in the scriptures…

Read Hebrews 13 (focus on verse 5 and verse 8)

Study group questions…

The moral exhortations given in this chapter. (1-5)

  • Let brotherly love continue
  • The honour of marriage
  • Entertain strangers
  • Do not covet
  • Remember the prisoners
  • Be content

The religious exhortations given in this chapter. (7-19)

  • Remember those who rule over you
  • Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines
  • Be willing to bear reproach with Jesus
  • Continually offer the sacrifice of praise, giving thanks
  • Do good and share
  • Obey those who rule over you, be submissive
  • Pray for others

What does the author pray for in behalf of his readers? (20-21)

  • For God to make them complete in every good work to do His will
  • For God to work in them what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ

Verse of the Day 
“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5:11-12 NKJV

Blessings All!
Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS… 
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it, in Jesus’ name…Amen!

MCF – GAGETOWN GROUP STUDY & PRAYER TIME

Good  morning to you all,

Is summer coming back? It sure looks that way out here ;o) I hope everyone had a safe and happy week!

Ok, on to our reading and keeping the same pace… Do you walk by Faith? Or by Sight?
Read Romans 1:1-17

Put your focus on verse 17 and then look at your life… it is impossible to get to heaven by our works, a man once said that trying to earn our way into heaven was like trying to climb a rope of sand to the moon. We get to heaven by faith! So tell me are you living by faith today?

Study group questions…
1/ what is God’s power to save?
2/ why is it God’s power to save?

Foot notes on – Romans 1:17
The righteousness of God most likely means “righteousness from God.” It reflects a right standing before God that is given to people by God (see Phil. 3:9). The phrase likely has this meaning in Rom. 3:21–22 and 2 Cor. 5:21 as well (see notes on those verses). However, the expression probably also refers to God’s righteous moral character. This is seen in his holiness and justice. It is also seen in the way that his act of saving sinners through Christ’s death meets the just demand of his holy nature. From faith for faith probably means that right standing with God is by faith from start to finish. Shall live by faith. People receive the gift of salvation by faith. It is also by faith that they live each day.   Habakkuk 2:4 “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.

Verse of the Day
My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 1 John 2:1 NKJV

Blessings All!
Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS… 
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it, in Jesus’ name…Amen!

MCF – GAGETOWN GROUP STUDY & PRAYER TIME

Don’t forget that prayer/study in Gagetown is now meeting Wednesdays from 1210hrs to 1250hrs still at St. Luke’s chapel.

Good  morning,

Hope you all had a great week! God is GREAT!  In His love, you are safe and happy! Amen?

So, moving in the same direction of faith, you know with faith all is new, right?

Read 2 Corinthians 5 (but think about 5:17 most)
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

With a new life comes new responsibility. Remember Luke 9:62?

Study note questions…
1 – What is the condition of one in Christ?
2 – Through whom has God reconciled us to Himself?

Foot notes on: 5:17
The redemption of a people who live for Christ by living for others is the beginning of the new creation (see Isa. 43:18–19; 65:17–23; 66:22–23). This new creation also begins Israel’s final restoration from God’s judgment in the exile (see the context of Isa. 43:1–21; 65:17–25).

Verse of the Day 
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

Blessings All!
Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS… 
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it, in Jesus’ name…Amen!

MCF – Group in Gagetown

Gagetown prayer/study group is now meeting Wednesdays from 1210hrs to 1250hrs still at St. Luke’s chapel.

The following encouragement comes from the weekly Gagetown MCF group “Form Square”.  The group is fervently led by Padre Andrew Whitman with his insights on scripture, Jimmy Damiani with his humble prayerfulness, and Jeff Page with his cheerful faithfulness.

I would like to talk about our commitment to Jesus. Just take a moment and think about what you are doing with what God has given you. There is a cost associated to following the Lord Jesus Christ. You will see what I mean shortly…

Read Luke 9:57-62 the Cost of Discipleship

We will all stand accountable in front of God one day and He will see whether or not we have followed His Son faithfully as we walk by faith and not by sight. Let us not say: “Lord…me first.”
We cannot earn our way into Heaven or earn our salvation; that would be impossible. You can only get to Heaven if you believe in God’s perfect gift: His Son Jesus, the Messiah died on the cross for your sins and if you follow him at any cost.

Read Ephesians 2:8-9
8For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Study note questions…
Upon what basis have we been saved?
Upon what basis have we not been saved?

Verse of the Day: Psalm 121, 
A song of ascents. I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Blessing All!
Have a Great Day!
Keep your head up! GOD gives his hardest battles to his strongest SOLDIERS… 
So as we go through our day let us go out to help and to care for all that need it, in Jesus’ name…Amen!

WEEK 9 – Leaders

Wonderful God, today I bring you the rulers of the nations — Kings, Queens, Presidents, Prime Ministers — all who are in positions of leadership. I know I may be can be quick to criticize. I know that on most issue I have the luxury of withholding judgment, of not committing myself, of sitting on the fence. Even when I have an opinion it has little influence and seldom any consequence. I know this is not so with our leaders. O God, help them in the loneliness of their decisions. Put wise counsellors around them. Help them see how good right decisions are and where decisions must be made that are not in their own interest, deepen their sense of duty. Continue to draw them to your light and then give them then give them the courage to walk in that light. Amen

(Modified from a Richard Foster prayer found in his book *Prayers from the heart)*
