Receiving because we are Given

Receive Christ As ChildrenPosted by Brian McGinnis Sat, March 04, 2017 20:55:46

Receiving Christ is a better way of putting it than Encountering Christ - inasmuch as encountering could imply both accident and, perhaps, that Christ is as surprised to meet us as we are to meet Him. Christ is putting Himself "in our way". That is what the Incarnation means. Here is a selection of Course questions for you to think about:

1. What are the best things in life {and are they free?) ?

2. A Jehovah's Witness would say that God must always be addressed as Jehohah (translated, according to the Chief Rabbii, as "I AM WHO I WILL BE"). What Name or Title do you prefer?

3. How do you normally respond to a beggar (male or female)?

4. How do you respond to a "Big Issue" seller?

5. Would you copy the late St Georg's member who travelled to Croydon to look out for a "Big Issue" seller?

6. Try to picture a meal with a best friend, where the friend pours the tea; and says "This is my blood!"

7. What does receiving Communion mean to you?

8. Does your church welcome everyone, and make everyone feel welcome?

7. Does your church value everyone, and make everyone feel valued?

8. What part do you play in this?

9. St Paul speaks about being confident. Do you feel confident?

10. Has there been one (or more than one) magic moment in you =r Christian journey?

11. Any ambitions about freshening up how you receive Christ?
