Prayer: Each week we pray for a different church. During MJ (pastor) and my meeting on Tuesday, we were interrupted by a lady commenting on our Bible Study, who turned out to be the pastor's wife of the Baptist church we prayed for… Isn't that so neat? So we got to share with her how we prayed for them, and she said, “that was SO God, as they needed it.” – pretty neat, huh?!?!
Immortal, Invisible (with an organ and congos… it was pretty neat!) I love this hymn
I shared about corporate worship, and the unity it brings. Story of Jehosaphat from 2 Chronicles 20:2-9, and how worship was used for spiritual warfare. How it takes us into God's presence where the Enemy has no choice but to flee. Psalm 22:3 and Matthew 18:20. This fires me up… the mental pictures it evokes as, in one accord, we lift up God's name…
Holy Is the Lord (Chris Tomlin)
We Fall Down
Teaching Phillipians 2:1- ? 🙂
Break Our Hearts
Communion – we did it different this time. We served it to each other, in the “theme” of unity and one body… and we said this to each other, based on Phillipians 2:1-2
“Because we both belong to Christ I offer you any encouragement you might need as my (brother/sister) in Christ Jesus.
Because we both belong to Christ I offer you comfort from Christ Jesus' unconditional love for you as well as my love for you.
Because we both share the same Holy Spirit I offer you my fellowship, to truly know you and be known by you.
Because you are my (brother/sister) in Christ I give you my affection and my compassion.
All of this, I give to you as I serve you this symbol of Christ Jesus' body and blood shed for the forgiveness of our sins that we may be joined together in perfect unity with God and with each other as we wait for Christ to return and take us, His bride, to be with Him forever.
(Then a prayer for the person)
Let Thy Kingdom Come
