Persecution

Matthew 10:5-8, 16-25, Mark 8:34-35 Many people around the world face persecution for their faith in Jesus. Would you be willing to face such persecution for your faith? Thanks God for the freedom we have in the UK and prayer for those less fortunate than us.

Filled by God

Colossians 1:9-14 Do you live ‘Growing in knowledge of God’s will for us’? It should lead to bearing fruit in every good work. This should be the outworking of the knowledge of God’s wisdom that the Holy Spirit gives us.

Advent Peace

Jesus came to bring deep peace. Wholeness & restoration. Peace with God – Romans 5:1, Peace with ourselves – John 14:27 & Peace with others – Col 3:12-14.

Advent Hope

Genesis 12:2-3, Isaiah 9:6-7 & Luke 1:5-17 Romans 15:13 – Overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Being Disciples

Luke 5:1-11 Would Simon, Andrew, James & John look at me and recognise me as a disciple? Why do you follow Jesus?
