We are coming to a close of our 40 Days of Community small groups bible study. It has been a wonderful time getting to know others in our church and being able to study God’s word together. God’s word says in John 13:34-35 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.”
The word “disciple” carries with it a sense of deep commitment to Christ. When asked what does it mean to be a disciple of Christ, one believer responded: It means we must
*Bear the burden Christ bore for the unsaved, sharing the gospel with the same urgency.
*Be willing to give up any and everything for the sake of being obedient to Christ.
*Have evidence of Christ’s work in our lives by bearing fruit in terms of planting and watering seeds of faith in others.
*Obey the biblical commands.
My prayer is through our small groups we will continue to grow as true disciples of Christ by showing the love of Christ to each other and to those who are searching for a place to belong.
Our small groups will continue with new studies in March. If you have any questions, please contact Bro. Earl.
