And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place….(2 Peter 1:19)
Have you ever stared at the fire when braaiing, on a dark night (or at a candle during load shedding)? The longer you stare at the flames, the more the rest of the world seems to disappear. This is how Peter tells us we should study the Word. Our focus, our attention should be wholly on the Word, without any worldly distractions. This is true meditation. Not emptying your mind but filling it with the wonder and majesty of the Word.
On Thursday this week at 6 a.m., KBC’s fresh Eldership gathered for its first executive meeting. 10 a.m. is no longer viable, but there is real significance making this the first action of the day. From now on, Thursdays at 06:00 are our time together, whether for monthly meetings or with the Future Focus team, or just connecting for prayer and sharing, seeking to nurture and know each other.
The Lord has us on His path of growth, thankful for our rich past, ready for a rich future in Him:
Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you! My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. (Psalm 73:25, 26)
Welcome, and do pray that we may be sensitive to His leading in all things.
