K'nect Group

Last night, Mum and Dad hosted their small group/home group (whatever it is you call it).  At our church, we call them K'nect Groups.  Us kids were really excited because K'nect Group night is the time where we get to watch a movie with the kids of one the couples who are very good friends of ours. 

Last night was different, though.  Us older kids (ages 15+)  decided we would have our own Bible study while the younger ones watched a movie.  We all settled in our sitting room (which isn't very big, but it was cozy :) ) and after pretending to take the plate of ANZAC biscuits and fudge brownies away from each other, we settled down to business.  The book we are doing the study out of is called The Life you've always Wanted by John Ortberg.  The first part of the first chapter talked about being disappointed with ourselves and how we have fallen so short of the Lord's calling on our lives.  It was most thought provoking and the discussion was more so because we had viewpoints from varying personalities, perspectives that we would not have normally seen by ourselves.  We would up by reading Exodus 3:1-15.  This spoke about Moses and the burning bush and about how Moses had to turn aside from his daily routine and his sheep to listen to God's voice.  We also discussed about how God says, "I am who I am" and so we don't need to worry about who we are as much as we need to focus on the Lord and who He is and grow in that.

Now I want to encourage you.  Last night was such a fantastic time of fellowship and encouragement that I would highly recommend meeting with people to discuss God's Word.  We young people need the Word of Truth as well, else how will we know the road to take? 

O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.  (Psalm 71:17)
