“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17)
How is it with your soul? Are you growing in our relationship with God or are things stagnant? I think these are good questions to ask ourselves.
You know, if things are healthy in our core—that is, in our relationship with Jesus Christ—then our ability to not only cope but also to live through these difficult times successfully, triumphantly and fruitfully greatly enhanced. Because when our core is strong, we can grow in other areas as well.
Core groups are made up of no more than six or seven people and they meet once a week at the same time each week. They are also confidential, they read Scripture together, pray for one another and help one another grow in their love for Jesus Christ.
John Wesley called these groups Band Societies. They were created because the Christian journey doesn’t stop when we say “I do” to Jesus’s call to come follow Him. That is just the beginning of a life-long, life changing relationship where we seek to grow more and more into God’s likeness.
As Christians our core is our relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It’s the most important part of our lives.
Please call the church if you would like to be part of a Core group.
