CrossWay On Purpose – Session 6

We had 10 present for Session 6 of CrossWay On Purpose.  We had some of the best discussion we’ve had since we started this Bible study.  There was a great spirit to the group and an obvious and earnest desire to move forward and implement the things we’ve been discovering in the Scriptures.

We examined 1 Thessalonians 1:3; 5:11; 5:16-18; Hebrews 10:24-25; 13:7,17; 1 Peter 2:9-10; 1 John 1:5-7; 4:7-21.  Here’s what we found in these passages about the church–who we are to be and what we are to do:

  • produce works by faith
  • do labor prompted by love
  • endure
  • be inspired by hope in Christ
  • be patient with hope in our Lord Jesus Christ
  • stick with it in hard times
  • be in prayer constantly
  • we are always in the sight of God our Father
  • encourage each other
  • build each other up
  • comfort and edify each other
  • give thanks in all circumstances
  • be joyful always
  • pray, pray, pray
  • consider (think prayerfully) how to provoke one another to love and good deeds
  • love
  • do good deeds
  • meet together-and not give up
  • assemble ourselves together purposefully
  • encourage and exhort each other
  • think about each other
  • pray for our leaders
  • imitate the faith and way of life of our leaders
  • obey and submit to our leaders
  • we are a chosen people
  • we are a royal priesthood
  • we are a royal nation
  • we are God’s special possession
  • we are a peculiar people (KJV)
  • we are called
  • we are to praise God
  • we are the people of God
  • we have received mercy
  • we should freely give mercy
  • we are redeemed
  • we belong to a family
  • we are to show & tell people that they are special because God loves them
  • we are to declare God’s message that God is light
  • we are to walk in the light
  • we have fellowship with Jesus
  • we are cleansed from all sin by the blood of Jesus
  • we are to love one another
  • we are born of God
  • we know God
  • we believe Jesus is the Son of God
  • our response to God is love because He first loved us
  • Jesus is the propitiation for our sins
  • we live through Jesus
  • we ought to love one another
  • we are loved by God
  • God have given us His Spirit
  • we live in Him
  • He lives in us
  • testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world
  • God dwells in us, and we in God
  • we know God’s love
  • we rely on God’s love
  • we believe God loves us
  • we are like Jesus
  • we are to have no fear
  • we love because He loves us
  • we must love others

After the study we talked for another 45 minutes, covering everything from how to strategically connect with different groups of people to the best way to follow up with guests.  We closed with one of our participants leading us in prayer.

We’re taking some down time for a couple weeks, during which we will not be meeting on Wednesday nights.  But we’ll be back on August 15 at 6:30 p.m.  We’re down to just a couple passages in Revelation, but they’re lengthy passages which may take another two or three weeks.  Then we’ll start digesting all these Scriptures we’ve been feeding on, and start exercising!!!
