Everyone who is already committed to helping at Alpha is also already helping keep St. Barnabas alive in some other way as well. For example: in case you didn’t know we still have folk desperate for an evening service, but those who could make it happen cannot sustain the additional work load on top of their jobs, and their existing commitments to St. Barnabas and Alpha etc.
We all need to grow up in faith and works. So lets all please start growing up and exercising in faith and works.
Will this mean giving up going to the gym or giving up running for a couple of months to get some spiritual exercise and do some good work? Will this mean going out in the evenings to Alpha for a couple of months instead of relaxing at home midweek? What is your hindrance that prevents you from participating at Alpha?
Come on let us all grow up a little.
Put on a little kindness. Put on a little love.
Put on faithfulness. Put on Christ.
Let us know how you are committing to Alpha (use the form in the previous blog entry)!
1Th 5:11 ... encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
1Th 5:14 And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the faint-hearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.
So how can I encourage you to not miss out on the purposes of your life? Are you really not meant to be involved in Alpha? Who told you that? Who are you listening to?
