Christ's Life Poured Out!
The Leadership Training Students (2nd Year's) spent five days away at Mount Washington, north of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. This retreat time away alone with a couple of Leading Staff was a very refreshing time for them as they studied the book of James together. It was a time of reflection as each made time to look back on the previous few weeks giving praise to the Lord Jesus for all He has been doing in their personal lives and in the lives of the first year students during the first term. Studying James emphasized the need to be both hearers of the Word and doers of the Word with very practical instruction. They're looking forward to leading by example in the coming months in both hearing and doing.
The students have also begun their studies into the book of Mark to present in small group contexts called HOME GROUPS. These are an incredible learning experience in groups of around 12 students, each group in a Staff Home. They are beginning to see that there are NO exceptions to this experience of seeing and hearing from God directly from His Word as this is the only "Text Book" and the Holy Spirit of God can show them the message of Life through Christ's indwelling power as they open their Bibles and trust Him to teach them of Himself. God delights to do this work! It is the foundation (Jesus says in Matthew 7) to standing strong in every storm! "hearing these Words of Mine AND DOING them...".
This is an exciting time for them as maybe for the first time ever they study the Word to know Him - not just to teach the scripture! However, the productive part about each one teaching is that it tends to cement the study in their minds and hearts too!
As a staff body we constantly pray that each one will come to a deeper and more intimate, living knowledge of Christ's Life as He wants and wills to live IN and THROUGH each one ... transforming their lives in the whole process!
Its amazing that by His great favour He longs for us to experience Him in this way!
