November 3rd News

Last week in our series What It Means to Be a Disciple of Jesus, we talked about the fact that a disciple is a friend. A primary scripture we looked at was Jesus’ command to his disciples in John 13:

John 13:34-35

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

We looked at how to practically “love one another” in the church and talked about 1) Spending time with each other; 2) Encouraging each other; and 3) Keeping short accounts with each other.

I wanted to spend one more week looking at this idea of being a friend because it is so important in our daily lives.

To prepare, read James 1:19-21. In this passage we can learn some very basic- but incredibly important- lessons about how to interact with one another in a loving, up lifting way.

As we go through this series, you should be thinking about practically applying the things we are learning. This will require some effort on your part– but I believe that the Holy Spirit will bless you in the process!

Looking forward to Sunday!!


Grace and peace,
