Blessed Fellowship

Yesterday, a woman from church invited me and others over to her house for a brunch. The occasion: a time of sharing and talking about how we might encouragement one another in beginning to walk in our true riches in Christ Jesus our Lord.



Three of us met for delicious breakfast food and joyful fellowship around the Lord. It was a feast. There were earthly good gifts: fruit, bagels, bacon, sausage, casserole, pastries, orange juice, coffee, and a decoration of hydrangea. There were also spiritual good gifts: hours of discussion about the Lord's grace, His call to righteousness, and His person. We each left with a gift from the hostess: a book of Puritan meditations, a notebook, pen, and thank you note. It was a beautiful and blessed time. Praise the Lord for His good gifts! And many thanks to our hostess and all in attendance for their love in Christ! Will this be the kind of fellowship that we have around the Lord in paradise? :)

These were the notes that I took in my new notebook

His sun shines on the good and on the wicked
How/what do I talk about with Christians? with non-Christians?

Consistent
Steadfast love

don't worry about offense - think of being consistently bright and salty

John Baptist - us
that the Lord would lay us low to glorify His great name

Thankfulness
specific, personal, sincere
remember

invite people to church
invite people to Christ the Lord

How r u? --> At peace in Christ
What did u do today? --> Bible study + prayer

FOCUS + JOY + ENERGY ==> Christ, His Body
think of other things as secondary + don't let these over take focus

What does the Lord value?
What does He say?

God reaches unbelievers when our <3 doesn't make sense

PSALMS --> morning + evening (6:30 - 10:30)
PROVERBS
MARK --> lunch - where? cafeteria - Bible bookmark
MOSES

Next 30 days - incline our <3s to You
You can never get enough of Christ

We were all thrilled to be coming to L's house for nothing but to talk about the Lord

LORD, USE THIS LITTLE HOUSE FOR YOUR GOOD WORK - THE SALVATION OF MANY SOULS + THE LIGHT OF THE GOSPEL - from here, out

Be prepared! we plan for things - why not holiness? God's path + battle

Ask big things of God

JOURNAL: signs of grace yesterday
PRAYER JOURNAL: God hears us

Spiritual
feasting on
Christ
at
L's house :)

MAL 3:16-18
Acts 17:11 Bareans - Searched the Scriptures DAILY
"noble" - same values as the Lord
God-fearing

everything we need for life + godliness the Holy Spirit reveals to us over time thru real life and applies the truth to our life

fear the Lord - not living in sin patterns
help us!

When something happened to Joseph,
he remembered the law
he remembered God

circumstances do not dictate our response -
God's word

have to plan
store up
the Scriptures
in our <3s

-Zechariah- [name means "remember the LORD"]

the Lord sees

Only the Lord is worthy
that's why He lies us in the dust - to show us what we deserve and what He deserves

What does the Lord love?
What should we develop in our lives
-noble <3
-searches the Scriptures
-turn the other cheek
-love otrs, esp hard people, do all to lead them to Christ

TU :) Luke 23?

[When tempted to anger toward others] Hasn't the Lord done more for you [than you deserve?]
Mt 5
1 Pt 2

Psalms: those who trust in the Lord
but I don't trust Him
help me to trust you, Lord!

Mt 5 - 1 Peter 2
good works --> glory of God
love for God [is what will] compel us to tell others about the Lord

PROVOKE OTHERS TO GOOD WORKS
how to encourage others to do good? check on them?
FOCUS = CHRIST
a man of 1 plan - to live totally sold out to the Lord

his riches
eternal reward
seeing Him who is invisible

May the Lord create in us His character as we submit to Him + yield to His chastening to get from us what He wants - for His glory

no murmuring
bless His name

what better life could we live?
