We’re looking forward to a great time of discussion this Friday in our small groups. We will be meeting at church at the regular time for a time of fun, musical worship, and small groups, led by student discussion leaders!
Click “How We Are Supposed to Love” mp3 and Table of Contents to review and prepare for our small groups this Friday!
In light of last week’s message, please take a look at the plans for February:
2/1/19 – Hearing God’s thoughts, values, and plan (the teaching) – “How We Are Supposed to Live”
2/8/19 – Working through the teaching and then prepping to implement
This Friday, the desire is to work out, discuss, fine tune, and work through the specific teaching, passages, commands, etc. that were brought forth last Friday – not for discussion’s sake, but for action’s sake, for implementation’s sake.
We need to ensure that we plan for the following week’s night of action. Ideally, we want all TD’ers to begin developing a lifestyle of loving God and loving our neighbors, and to actively make loving/serving others a regular given in our lives.
The last portion of this night will be planning/prepping for “Love One Another” Night.
2/15/19 – Implement/execute the teaching – “Love One Another” Night
The teaching is about loving “one another,” and as I taught, one of the greatest testimonies is loving the “one anothers” that are harder to love or who we naturally wouldn’t love and spend time with. So, before we go to the outside world, let’s follow Jesus’ game plan and love some of the “one anothers” outside our natural sphere; and in doing so, hopefully, TD’ers will get closer to one another in the process.
2/23/19 – SOS Saturday – Care Center only
One of the most important ministries TD has ever had … and the least participated in, by far … to our shame, truth be told. Hear Jesus Himself in Matt. 25 …
34“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
41“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45“He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
Any community is only as strong as it takes care of the weak.
There you have it; the month of February; the month of love. Let’s love, TD, and see what God does as we do! – Arthur
