Doubt 2

8 HIM’s showed at The Forge on Wednesday night for the 2nd part on Doubt.  This time we covered God’s Unwavering Promise. No matter what God is with you and his promise to you will be fulfilled.

Genesis 28

John 14:1-8

1John 4:13-19

Thanks to all who consistently show to support one another!

Doubt Part 1

5 PAX posted at The Forge for a tough conversation on doubt! This was a tough one for me because it is something I struggle with. Not so much doubt in God but doubt in myself.  Studying and preparing for this week has helped and the PAX stepped up big time when we met! Thanks Guys.

A few notes from the thang:

We allow human reason to overshadow faith in God, sinful doubt is the result.

The remedy of doubt is faith, faith comes from hearing God’s word, the bible is a testimony to give us reason to trust him.

Verses on Doubt

James 1:6-8

Jude 1:22

Matthew 21:21, 14:31

Proverbs 3:5

Supplemental reading that helped:

How do I know I’m saved?

Friendship

5 PAX posted at The Forge Wednesday night to discuss friendship. I was recently reading a chapter abut this in a book and thought it would be great subject for discussion.  Many of us struggled with this in a our sadclown syndrome before finding F3. The story I read was about Jonathon and David and the loving friendship they shared.  We covered some things from the book and some from the Bible.

1Samuel 18:1-4

19:1-7

20:4,16-17

Think about some things. Who do you count as a true friend? How do you define what a friend is? Who would you call on in a time of need? Who would you turn to if your marriage was in trouble? Who would you turn to to help you through a struggle?

Perseverance / Forge

got questions.org says “ the doctrin of perseverance of the saints is founded in the promise that… He who began a good work in will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Phili. 1:6

All who have been “ born again “ do have eternal security and will persevere.

James 1:2

Galations 6:9

2 Timothy 2:12

Philippians 1:6 are some of the scripture shared!

Paul wrote to Timothy and reminded the young pastor to “ watch your life and doctrine closely, persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” (1 Timothy 4:16)

With the recent passing of Billy Graham we are reminded that through our perseverance in Christ that we are saved and so are our hearers! Like our children, wives, coworkers,ect.

So I urge you brothers to persevere in your faith because you never know who is watching and listening, and may come to know Christ through you!

Brothers if at all possible come out on Wednesday night! It’s an awesome time to share and sharpen one another to fight the good fight! And press forward in our daily spiritual battles, with an eternity spent with Jesus Christ as our prize!
