7 August 2020 – Morning Reflections continue during level 1
Posted by robinpalmer
MORNING REFLECTIONS UPDATE
Be alert and look for opportunities to encourage and help people.
We are on high alert but don’t always notice the obvious, the beautiful, or the needs and changing circumstances of those around us. We are reminded to be alert – ready to pray, aware of the enemy’s attacks, and always ready to give a reason for the hope we have.
Morning reflection – are you a Christian? Following Jesus and what that means today.
The first followers of Jesus were only called Christians in the city of Antioch around 44 AD. Before this they were Jewish people who followed Jesus, and at one point called “people of the Way”. Today we reflect on what it means to follow Jesus in our generation as we seek to hear His voice.
Morning reflection – Encourage one another. A few thoughts about building up one another and encouragement at this challenging time.
