G'day! Welcome to Partakers Wednesday Worship on the 31st of August, 2011! Lets start with prayer!

Merciful Lord we come now to worship you in Spirit and in truth! Cast your light upon us so that we may reflect your beauty and majesty to those around us who do not know you personally!

Bible Readings

Matthew 19v24-27

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.

When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, Who then can be saved?

Jesus looked at them and said, With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

Peter answered him, We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?

Philippians 3v8-9

What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ- the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.

Bible Talk

I wonder what you have given up, since you became a Christian?  From our bible readings, we know from Peter and Paul, that they gave up everything in order to follow Jesus Christ.

When Jesus Christ called you to follow Him, He bid that you die to self and follow him whole heartedly! Again, I ask you - what have you given up in order to follow this Jesus you claim to serve and follow? You are called to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and will. You are called to exhibit this love practically, in loving other people.

My wife and I have we have given up almost everything to follow Him, in creating this ministry of Partakers. For a very brief synopsis, we have left our families in our home countries, given up our own home in London and a good job with a good salary. We did all this to go serve God ultimately with Partakers via theological college. And He calls us to keep on following Him faithfully.

I don't say this in order to gain any glory for myself but rather to glorify the God who called me and my wife to follow him wholeheartedly!

Again I ask what you have given up in order to follow Jesus Christ?

Prayers!

Lets take about a period of silence to reflect on

  • What Jesus Christ has given up for you?
  • What you have and can give up for Him?
  • How you can practically exhibit your love of Him with all your heart, soul, mind and will?

Father God, in your mercy, hear these prayers of your children! For we ask them in the name of your son, Jesus Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Benediction

May the love of God the Father, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, evermore. Amen

Thanks for joining us on Partakers Wednesday Worship! See you again real soon!

Think Spot - 29th August 2011

G'day! Welcome to Partakers Think Spot at the start of new week on Monday the 29th of August 2011.

Romans 1:1-5

Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God-  the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures  regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David,  and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name's sake.

Jesus is Unique

The first word I would use for Jesus is that He is unique - totally unique! Never before and never to be repeated again - ever! Jesus Christ is the standout person from all of history! In all of human history, Jesus Christ is incomparable!

Yet in human form, we read that during his earthly ministry he had no physical beauty that would draw people naturally to himself. We read that Jesus' body on the cross was disfigured and tortured beyond that of human likeness. His perfect life, His salvation work on the cross and His subsequent rising from the dead, is what makes Jesus Christ unique - a once and for all lifetime Messiah or Saviour for the entire world!  This great God of creation, stepping into His creation as a human, with the purpose of reconciling the world back to Himself! WOW!! Jesus' uniqueness meaning I can have an active and dynamic relationship with God.

As you go into this week may your relationship with God be active and dynamic! Go and thank Jesus Christ for his uniqueness which allows this to occur.

Prayer

Father, we thank you for Jesus Christ your Son! We thank you that because of Him, we can enter into a dynamic and active relationship with you! We ask this prayer and give you praise, through your Son and in the power of the Holy Spirit who lives inside all those who are following! Amen!

Thanks for joining us on Partakers ThinkSpot! See you again real soon!

Opening prayer - Bryony

O gracious and holy Father,

Give us wisdom to perceive you,

Diligence to seek you,

Patience to wait for you,

Eyes to behold you,

A heart to meditate upon you,

And a life to proclaim you,

Through the power of the Spirit

Of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen

(Benedict of Nursia c.550AD)

Psalm 30

1 I will exalt you, O LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.

2 O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.

3 O LORD, you brought me up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit.

4Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name.

10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help.

11 You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,

12 that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks for ever

Time of Silence for your own praises and prayers

Hebrews 13v20-21

Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
