Dear Leader

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary, and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:28-31)

Look forward to seeing you at the Leaders meeting at 19h15 tonight for a time of soaking worship, prayer and testimonies. Let's seek the Lord and trust Him for the strength we need to finish the year well.

Fellowship

Take a moment to give thanks to the Lord for Sunday and to pray for all those who responded to the altar call.

Worship

Opening prayer and time of worship

Discipleship Theme: God's divine power

Scripture reading 2 Peter 1:1-4

1. Our faith is precious

Peter had a passion for the people of God. We too should have a passion for our fellow believers, to not be selfish but to look out for others.

Peter refers to our faith being precious and how we need to guard our faith. The enemy attacks through doubt. Our faith in the finished work of Jesus on the cross is so important and impacts the way we live.

Discussion 1: Have you ever been through a situation that shook your faith? What did you do to protect and guard your faith at that time?

2. Grace and peace be multiplied to you

The grace of God is incredible. Grace is God bestowing His favour and blessing on our lives by bringing us into a covenant relationship with Jesus.
Grace is God seating us in Heavenly places and giving us a wonderful spiritual inheritance. His grace has been made available to us through the cross of Calvary and the death and resurrection of Jesus. And it is through His grace that we can have peace for our souls.

Discussion 2: When you think of God's grace and peace, what thoughts and emotions rise within you?

3. His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness.

God has given us everything we need to live a victorious life. God has not left us as orphans He has given us His Holy Spirit to help us live godly lives. There are too many Christians who live in a place of defeat. We are not at a disadvantage, we are positioned and equipped to succeed.
In Philippians 4:13 Paul said "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". We don't need to rely on our own power to live the Christian life, but we can rely on His divine enabling power.

His divine power can help us overcome temptation, deal with anger and pride, minister to others, and do great exploits for the Kingdom.

Discussion 3: Talk about the Holy Spirit and how He empowers us to live godly and fruitful lives.
