How did you come to FFC? Immediately after arriving to Ft. Campbell and “church shopping” for a handful of months, I identified FFC on Google and decided we would verify it out. On our initial Sunday, Steph and I enjoyed the strong teaching along with the emphasis on discipleship. Two points that produced us really feel really welcome had been Kyle and Sarah inviting us more than for dinner and the church providing us a present basket when Samuel was born. We’ve been going to FFC because August 2017 and officially became members in January 2018.
How has the Christ-centered, expositional teaching helped you develop? Each teaching, there are some “nuggets” I take away, generally pertaining to points God had currently been teaching me or putting on my heart. A current instance would be the sermon on friendship, from Proverbs and John. That identical week, I felt the have to have for a lot more fellowship and intentionally attempted to meet with a different guy at FFC who also operates on Ft. Campbell. The Sunday teaching reinforced that wish the Holy Spirit had provided me, offering a lot more insights into what Christ-centered friendships appear like.
What have you been reading not too long ago? I am at present reading via Numbers, John, and Colossians. I am also about halfway via a book referred to as “Get Genuine: Sharing Your Daily Faith Each Day” by John Leonard.
What has God been teaching you lately? He’s been reminding and convicting me that following Jesus includes investing in other people today. Jesus tells his disciples that He chose and appointed them so that they really should go and bear fruit and that their fruit really should abide (John 15.16). When I study this verse, the Holy Spirit showed me 4 generations. Generation 1 is Jesus. Generation two consists of Jesus’ disciples. Generation 3 consists of His disciples’ fruit, which would be other disciples. Here’s the kicker… Jesus desires for that fruit in the third generation to abide. We know that these who abide in Him bear a lot fruit (John 15.five), which is exactly where I see the fourth generation— fruit that abides bears a lot more fruit. Jesus definitely desires His disciples to have spiritual generations. It is humbling to know that if I abide in Him, He will create that fruit in my life. Investing in other people today is hardly ever enjoyable or simple (Paul says he “toils” and “struggles” in Colossians 1.29) but I absolutely know it is fascinating to be portion of His mission and have an eternal influence.
