CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Matt 18:21-35 While the damage dealt by the second servant is significant, it is also irrelevant. Their is a peace that surpasses all understanding (Phil 4:7) and this makes every Christian bulletproof, when we meditate on the Gospel.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
9 HIMs showed up to get better at JUCO this morning.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“WWJD” Many of us remember when the “What Would Jesus Do” fad happened in the 90’s. Although the fad was more about collecting bracelets and trying to look cool, the words are just as true today as they ever have been. We should consider this phrase every time we make a decision.

Romans 13:14

“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.”

MOLESKIN:
Trolley’s beatdown on Wednesday was still fresh, so today’s workout was intended to allow each HIM to move at their own speed.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

We all face a lot of shame, humiliation, feelings of embarassment, and inadequacy. It’s usually in those moments that we face defeating thoughts and thus act out in negative or destructive ways. Challenging thought: When do you feel shame most? Encouragement: remember in those moments to recognize your shame, but then but in the context of God’s grace, truth, and surround yourselves with community.

MOLESKIN:

No prayer requests

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Thanks for all those who supported me on my VQ. I hope you enjoyed the beatdown and the new or unfamiliar exercises that were thrown in. I will be Q-ing again on Friday, May 3rd at JUCO if you want some more of that action!
