community life + featured content
On Sunday, Nov 13, Reality called all covenant members & regular attenders to a time of prayer & fasting for the gospel, for our neighbours & for our city.
When asked how healthy the church is, some tend to measure numbers (noses & nickels) on sundays. My preference is to measure Baptisms & Prayer participation.
- Sunday morning attendance reflects the popularity of the preacher & musicians.
- Mid-week Community Group attendance reflects the popularity of friends/leaders/hosts andour shared mission.
- But Prayer gatherings reflect how popular Jesus is.
Prayer - especially when combined with fasting - is work. Hard work. Good work. Great work. Maybe the greatest work. It's certainly a requirement for any real Gospel change in our own hearts - and in the hearts of our neighbours.
What a joy to see nearly 70 reality peeps show up to pray - to raise their voices & hands in song - and ask our great Saviour to do His work in our midst.
Thanks for reflecting the popularity of Jesus. Keep your prayers going - especially for our local mission - our unity on mission - community groups - and those serving Jesus overseas.
Jesus is Reality.
