Pressing on

At Agape yesterday we thought about how much we were accepting the word: "Get rid of all moral filth and humbly accept the word planted in you." So the scripture goes.

A cutting word for me since I know my shortcomings and the contrast of my longing to give my all to build Jesus' church.

Later we applied the word through prayer and prayed for various evangelistic campaigns taking place around the UK over the next week. We also prayed for particular disciples who were on our hearts.

We do so long to be a people for God, yet there is so much to cut away, so much of the Christian life to push into. We can only stick together and encourage each other onwards.
