Dear Friends, How the Grinch Stole Christmas release
This past Wednesday during Connections we heard an invitation from John Wesley (the founder of the Methodist Movement): “O begin! Fix some part of every day for private exercises … whether you like it or not, read and pray daily. It is for your life; there is no other way; else you will be a trifler all your days … do justice to your own soul; give it time and means to grow. Do not starve yourself any longer.”
It is quite simple—to become spiritually fit we need to exercise. Now no-one in their right mind would think of running a marathon without doing daily exercises in preparation, so why do so many of us think we can run the marathon of life without fixing some part of every day for the private exercises of prayer and Scripture study. Now when it comes to exercise of any sort most of us need a partner to inspire and hold us accountable. Please, please, please ask someone you respect and trust to check in with you about your private exercises!
PS. Do you want to change the World?
If something inside you says—YES, then why not make a commitment to becoming a Sunday School teacher/helper at CMM. One of the greatest responsibilities and privileges that each of us carries is that of educating our children in the ways of Jesus and the dream of Jesus for the world. If you are interested then lets meet after the Service next Sunday.
