The specific goal(s) of this ministry was to encourage each brother to be God's kind of man. A man of the Word and of prayer. A doctrinally sound member. A courageous churchman. And for many of us, more exemplary husbands. Faithful lay leaders are the backbone of any local church.
We have now come to the final stretch of this mini-Marathon. Saturday is our final session before “summer break.” I am asking the Holy Spirit to help these dear brothers to finish strong and to not take a seat on the final lap.
Pastorally and personally I am grateful for the faithfulness, the wise insights, the small group sessions, and for the personal commitment of these believers.
Because He’s worth it,
1 Timothy 4:7b-8; Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.
2 Timothy 2:15, Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth
Proverbs 27:17; Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.
