One Thing is Necessary – The Home Church 37

Welcome to this week’s Scripture passage “One Thing is Necessary” to study in your Home Church *. Today’s verses about trusting in God. He knows what you need. Certainly there is concerns, but you should not worry in advance and sleep poorly. You can trust God to take care of each new day. Yesterday has past. Tomorrow you have yet not seen. Today the Lord will help you.

Matthew 6:31-34 (NKJV) “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

1. Start with eating a meal or having a snack together, and talk about the past week (share life). Make sure everyone who is present have a chance to speak.
2. Read the introduction and Bible verse above, loud and slowly for each other.
3. Turn off the sound on your mobiles. Put a stopwatch (we usually use the stove clock) on 10 minutes, close your eyes, and be totally silent until the timer rings. In the beginning thoughts will be bouncing, but then they will calm. Preferably do this exercise every day, as we meet so many things that distracts us from calming ourselves and listening to Gods Spirit. Read the Daily Bible Verse at the top right of TheWebChurch.in – before starting the silent part.
4. Pass around something small (could be a candle). The person holding this is the one who talks about thoughts of the Bible text that emerged during the silence. Of course it is also alright to share other thoughts that come to surface during the time you calmed your soul (Psalm 131: 2) >>
5. Talk about this weeks challenge (see below), pray for one another and finish by praying out loud Our Father >>

This weeks challenge:
We are called to cast our burdens and our worries on God. Are there any concerns that you now carry? If yes, is it time to trust God and put it in his hands?

* The idea of a Home Church is that you do not have to go to a certain church building to learn more about God. You only have to find at least one other person to form a home study group (church) with. That’s how easy it is. Invite someone home for food or refreshments. It’s fine to start a home church with people who are not christians (family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc.). If so, work with the Bible verses based on “If this was true – what would it mean for me and my every day life?” We will publish new material every week (according to the church year texts). Jesus says in Matthew 18, verse 20: “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them”.

Ps) We publish new posts every week. Please subscribe (the field to the right of this box), so you do not miss anything.
