#CBMCYukon - Wed 6/26/19 - 6:30am - @cbmcok #davidcurran #russelmigl

Good morning men!

 

I hope your Monday has started off well! 


Will you join us Wednesday morning bright and early?…consider inviting a guest. 

 

This week we will begin to wrap up the last principle of the Living Proof study and then do about a 2 week quick review of the Living Proof principles which will take us through the end of July.  All great and worthy information!!  


➖This week's principle:

"Evangelism and Discipleship are one continuous adventure"

 

HEADS UP:  we will have a few special guest speakers starting in July which are listed at the bottom of the email. 

 

------------------------------------   

STARTING OFF THIS WEDNESDAY MORNING
we will consider the questions listed below and share responses. (if you volunteer to do so). 

"The terrible thing, the almost impossible thing, is to hand over your whole self—all your wishes and precautions—to Christ. But it is far easier than what we are all trying to do instead. For what we are trying to do is to remain what we call 'ourselves', to keep personal happiness as our great aim in life, and yet at the same time be 'good'. We are all trying to let our mind and heart go their own way—centered on money or pleasure or ambition—and hoping, in spite of this, to behave honestly and chastely and humbly. And that is exactly what Christ warned us you could not do. As He said, a thistle cannot produce figs. If I am a field that contains nothing but grass-seed, I cannot produce wheat. Cutting the grass may keep it short: but I shall still produce grass and no wheat. If I want to produce wheat, the change must go deeper than the surface. I must be ploughed up and re-sown."  - C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

 

Use a journal this week to reflect on one or more of the following questions: (I suggest wading through all the questions.)

 

A:  What are some of the reasons I fear giving my life completely to God?

 

B:  Which areas of my life am I most reluctant to surrender to God?

 

C:  In what ways have I experienced the heavy burden of trying to remain in control of my life?

CBMC - 6:30am - Wednesday 5/22/19

Good afternoon men!

 

I hope to see everyone tomorrow morning bright and early – 6:30am @ 2500 S Cornwell Ave! 

Consider inviting  guest…Go for it!

 

What a week it has been and it's only Tuesday (as I type) !  I pray you are all safe and dry..

 

Dave, Jack and Marc – God's speed in accommodating all the needs of the constituents you serve in Canadian County.  May the men and women under your leadership remain safe and serve with hearts of compassion and have great wisdom over the next few days and weeks..

 

Just like these great men of valor raised the flag on Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima many years ago showing their allegiance and pride of the USA…and that the mount was officially taken.   WE, too, are challenged to "raise our flag" of dependence on Christ and pride of Jesus in our lives and that we are officially taken.

 

And as we have talked many times…we must ask the question - "HOW AM I DOING?"

 

Tomorrow we will continue with our discussion of Living Proof – Principal #10: "Raising the Flag and sharing Faith Stories leverages rapport and creates spiritual curiosity".

 

We have one specific assignment for tomorrow, just one.   Take a few minutes today prior to going to bed tonight and Write out a recent experience when God prompted, comforted or gave you wisdom and how you might use it in a Faith Story.  

Examples:  Helping someone when you had "other things to do" ..  Offering to pray when everyone else opted out.  Stepping out of a conversation that was  inappropriate. 

 

God is at work everywhere and all the time….so jot down one example where you were encouraged to do something…that raised the flag of Jesus.  

 

See you in the morning!!


Jay
