What's the Next Step?

We often talk at DHVC about people being on a spiritual journey. One thing we're about is helping people think about where they are on their spiritual journey, and helping them take the next step. Over the weekend Tammy and I had over a dozen people round the house, at 3 different times, to reflect together about this.

It was great having our friends here sharing and praying about how each in their own way has come along in his or her love for Jesus. Tam and I are so moved by God's goodness and what we see Him doing in these DHVCers! We can see our prayers being answered, that each will be empowered by the Holy Spirit to move forward, completely confident that Jesus is a leader who can be trusted. And that as each does so, others will see Jesus can be trusted too by their manner of life.

This is consistent with our church theme of 'Steps of Faith' for the year, as Paul writes, 'We live by faith, not by sight.' 2 Corinthians 5.7, NIV.

I kneel before the Father. . . [and] pray that you. . . may have power. . . to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. . . . Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3.14-21, NIV
