Scripture Reading for the day Hebrews 12:4-17 READ MORE
“We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised” (Heb. 6:12).
The mature in faith train “themselves to distinguish good from evil” (Heb. 5:14). God expects us to grow in our faith to the point where we are able to guide others in the way of God’s justice. Communities that fail to mature are warned: “Some land drinks the rain that falls on it. It produces a crop that is useful to those who farm the land. That land receives God’s blessing. But other land produces only thorns and weeds. That land isn’t worth anything. It is in danger of coming under God’s curse. In the end, it will be burned” (Heb. 6:7-8). The warning is not given to terrify us into inactivity but to encourage us. We are called to train ourselves to soak up God’s grace as we seek, discern and do God’s will.
To this end we’ve invited Prot Malan Nel to help us understand, evaluate and develop our life together for the glory of God. A prayer guide will be enclosed each week to help us prepare. Please pray with us.
