10 DAYS OF PRAYER & FASTING
Pause & Reflect
“A healthy church is not a church that’s perfect and without sin. It has not figured everything out. Rather, it’s a church that continually strives to take God’s side in the battle against the ungodly desires and deceits of the world, our flesh, and the devil. It’s a church that continually seeks to conform itself to God’s Word.” Mark Dever, Nine Marks of a Healthy Church
Our desire is to continue to grow in health as we pursue all that God wants for us.
And now, a word to you who are elders in the churches. I, too, am an elder and a witness to the sufferings of Christ. And I, too, will share in his glory when he is revealed to the whole world. As a fellow elder, I appeal to you: Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God. Don’t lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your own good example. And when the Great Shepherd appears, you will receive a crown of never-ending glory and honour. In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:1-5
- That our leaders will continue to reflect Christ’s shepherd’s heart in all they do
- That as a church community from old to young our lives will be an example of Christ.
- That the spirit of humility will mark all that we do as a church community
- That the churches in our town and nation will truly reflect God’s good grace to each other and the world around them
- That God’s light will shine brightly in His church.
We will meet every evening 6-7pm at the ElimCentre to worship and pray together.
Would be great to see as many of us there as possible
