Toward Sunday

Our worship this Sunday will be rooted in Ephesian 2.8-9. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God— not the result of works, so that no one may boast.”   In a conversation with his mentor Peter Bohler, John Wesley in a time of doubt asked “How can you preach to others if you don’t have faith yourself?”  Bohler answered “Preach faith til you have it; and then, because you have it, you will preach faith.”  Faith takes practice.  We know how to practice but sometimes we forget.

The Christian practices are:  Public worship, Holy Communion, searching scripture, prayer, fasting, witness of the word (saying what you know about God). 

What Christian practices are you currently doing?
