Below is a brief review of our meeting on Sunday, followed by projection from the message and a few discussions for Community Group or personal study this week

Josh opened up our time together with a Call to Worship from Psalm 95:1-7.

We sang Come People of the Risen KingAnd Can it Be, and He Will Hold Me Fast.

Matthew introduced a time of prayer for Syria. We watched Operation World’s video and prayed for the nation in small groups.

Chris shared about plans for Matthew’s time off this summer. Matthew then prayed and read Ephesians 3:8-13and preached the next message in our current series United: The Letter to the Ephesians. The message was titled “Don’t Loose Heart”. To listen again, visit our Audio Resources page or subscribe to our English or Spanish podcast. The message will be posted this week.

After the message we sang Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery and He Will Hold Me Fast.

Chris closed our time with a benediction from Isaiah 41:9-10.

Projection from the Message:

But Saul was ravaging the church, and entering house after house, he dragged off men and women and committed them to prison. – Acts 8:3

For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. – 1 Corinthians 15:9

Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love. He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea. – Micah 7:18-19

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. – Psalm 16:11

Discussion Questions:

1. God’s grace toward us will achieve God’s purpose for us. What does this mean? How does this concept play out in the course of a human life?

2. What is the significance of God entrusting His purpose to the church, while also ordaining that purpose to be fulfilled? How does this action differ from a god who would entrust a purpose for the church and then remained distant while they carried it out?

3. In what areas of your life is it easy to loose heart? What do you need to remember when this happens?

4. How can we work together as a community to help one another fight temptation and discouragement while keeping our eyes looking upward toward Jesus?
