Bible Study

We had a good study this week as 12 of us gathered around God’s Word to study Chapter 14 of John’s gospel.

It begins with “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me.”

Many people coming to Webber Street have “troubled hearts” and yet we have a gospel which can turn sorrow into joy by the power of the Holy Spirit..

Pray for those guests who come to the Bible Study, that they may encounter Jesus for themselves in a real and powerful way.

Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me”

Pray also that the Father will reveal Himself to our guests, as many of them have never known the love of an earthly father and so find it difficult to comprehend God’s love for them.

Bible Study

We had 10 guests gathered around the Word to study John 13 v 31 – 38.


We read how Jesus predicted Peter’s denial of Christ and yet Peter vowed to lay down his life for Jesus.
Despite Peter’s failure Jesus restored him later. This gives us great encouragement as all of us have failed
Him at times and yet Jesus restores us too, because He loves us so much.


Pray for our guests who are struggling against addictions, that they will turn to Jesus for help and forgiveness.

Bible Study

This week we gathered around God’s word with some new seekers, studying John 13.


As we read about Jesus washing the disciple’s feet, it was humbling for us to consider how Jesus led by example. Someone called God’s kingdom an upside down kingdom, as Jesus ways are often the opposite to worldly ways. If we follow Jesus example and serve one another “Now that you know theese things, you will be blessed if you do them” V.17.


Let us have this same attitude as we serve others, no matter who they are.

Bible Study

This week God drew 3 men to the bible study and we studied John chapter 12.
Jesus was entering Jerusalem on a young donkey’s back, and the crowd of his followers helped fulfill Zachariah 9 v 9.


Despite many signs and miracles including Lazarus being raised from the dead, the chief priests and the pharisees were unbelieving due to the hardness of their hearts.

Pray that God would open the eyes of one of our guests who only sees judgment ahead and doesn’t understand grace.
Pray that he will come back and let us tell him more about God’s grace, which is freely available to all who believe.

Bible Study

We had a blessed time at bible study this week with 7 of our guests.

We looked at the story of the woman caught in adultery brought to Jesus.
He showed her compassion, forgiveness and love and still does today with us.
Jesus is a friend of sinners and a defender of the weak.
That’s why we love him!

 

Bible Study

This week we looked at John 7 with 7 guests.

We saw how the crowd had divided opinions about who Jesus was.
Was he just a good man?
Or was he a deceiver?
Others said “He is the Christ”.
People still debate over who Jesus is today.
Pray that those who attend our bible study will put their faith in him.

Bible Study

Eleven of out guests had a lovely Easter dinner with us this week at bible study and we looked at the Easter story in John 19 & 20.

Without Jesus death on the cross we would never have a right relationship with God our Father.
Jesus death on the cross demonstrates God’s love for us and no-one has ever loved us like Jesus and no-one ever will.

 

Bible Study

This week we looked at John 6 with 7 guests,  the feeding of the five thousand.

We discussed how God sees our circumstances differently to the way we do.
Jesus saw the need for food to feed the people, as an opportunity to teach the disciples how to exercise faith.
Sometimes out difficult circumstances cause us to trust God more.
Its not what we have, its what God can and will do with what we have that counts.

 

Bible Study

This week we continued our study of John chapter 5 v 31 – 47 with 7 guests.

We discussed v 40 “yet you refuse to come to me to have life”.
The life Jesus talks about, is not only Eternal Life when we die, but a spirit filled life here on earth which gives us power to overcome sin.
Pray that those who come to the bible study regularly would become alive in Christ and dead to sin and its power over them.

Bible Study

We had 9 thirsty guests at bible study last week.
We looked at John 4 v 1 – 38 where Jesus talks with a Samaritan woman at the well.
Jesus said ” Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life”. The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty….”
Pray for D who is going to prison and came to the bible study.
Pray that his time in prison will result in him seeking God for this water Jesus is speaking of.
