We had a good time of singing this week to begin our meeting. People were in great voice. Our Bible Study this week looked at David's relationship with Saul and his son Jonathan. We discussed how David maintained respect for Saul because he was the Lord's anointed despite Saul having turned against God and was pursuing David around the country. We also discussed how, like David and Jonathan, God can give us friendships that are to be valued and treasured.
We closed with a time of worship and there was a deep sense of the quietness of God resting on the meeting as we closed.
Another good meeting at Airdrie this week. All were in good voice as John led the singing. A couple of folks shared some reports then Rae spoke from the Lord's prayer and some other verses around the Kingdom of God. We then had a very good worship time and also joined in prayer that new folks would come from the Airdrie area.
We had a smaller gathering in Coatbridge this week. The update from people seemed to have a theme running through it around the challenges in sharing their faith in the workplace. We rejoiced at the news of Jim and Mima's grandson getting out of hospital.
The Word given was about 'being filled' and the promise of Christ to fill us to be His witnesses. We were encouraged to try and remain being filled - by being obedient to God, to cleave to him and to seek His will.
We closed in prayer before a time of fellowship over tea and cakes.
