Join us again on Saturday December 8th at 7:00 am D.V. Men of all ages are invited and encouraged to bring a couple of bucks and join us for breakfast. Feel free to bring a friend, a neighbour, a co-worker, or a family member, and of course, if you need a ride please let us know.
After breakfast we will watch the next video in our series and have some time to discuss it and encourage one another. Whether you are struggling, heavy hearted, anxious, seeking accountability for yourself, or perhaps you're overjoyed about something that has happened, please join us!
Last time we looked at why we live in a time of confidence in the Bible, and this time we will be looking at Confidence in Christ. Our union with Christ is at the heart of the glorious gospel, and as Christians, we are called to be united with Him in His sufferings. In this lesson, Dr. Nichols sets our eyes on Christ, our confidence, that we might know His power in suffering.
As members of a society that is quickly abandoning its Christian past, followers of Christ often feel disoriented or even frightened. When human leaders and political advocates fail us, doubts arise and the road to compromise beckons. We can learn together, and help each other point to almighty God as the source and ground of our confidence. Though the whole world may shake around us, His kingdom is unshakable. This is a time for confidence, Confidence in the Christ!
In our closing prayer, we will also have an opportunity as friends and brothers to spend some time in prayer with and for each other, as we encourage one another in our Christian confidence, and help each other deal with difficult problems. Please bring your prayer requests so together we can be a hand and foot to one another.
