Session 13 is “Staying On The Right Path” This week sees the final part of our discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 13 is “Staying On The Right Path”If we want to be truly successful, fulfilled and satisfied we need to uncover and throw out false beliefs about what those things mean and commit ourselves to believing the truth in God’s Word. In this session we will examine what we believe concerning our own personal lives in the light of God’s Word. To help you understand how faith works in your daily life and to encourage you to stay on the path towards becoming more like Jesus.As this is the last session Dave is planning a summary next week and a time for us who have been through the course to talk about what we’ve learnt. It would be great to see you in person on Thursday the 21st of Jan at 7 PM.For more information on the Freedom In Christ program see https://www.ficm.org.uk/the_fic_course.The main reading is 2 Peter chapter 1.

This week sees the eleventh part of our discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 11 is “Relating To Others”The one thing that Jesus prayed for those who came after His first disciples — that’s us — is that we would be one, so that the world would know that we are His disciples. His great commandment says we are to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, souls, and minds, and to love our neighbour as ourselves. A right relationship with God should lead to a right relationship with our neighbours. In this session we will consider rights, responsibilities, judgment, discipline, and the needs of others.For more information on the Freedom In Christ program see https://www.ficm.org.uk/the_fic_course.We have a number of copies of the study guide available at church for you to take away.

Freedom In Christ - Growing in Maturity This week sees the tenth part of our discipleship course, Freedom In Christ.

Session 10 is “Growing in Maturity”We apologise for the audio quality at the beginning of the episode, it does improve at about 2 minutes from the start.Over the last four months we’ve been thinking about how to grow and mature as Christians. Being a mature Christian has nothing to do with how old we are, or even how long we’ve been a Christian, it’s about the depth and quality of our relationship with God, it is about becoming more like Christ.

Freedom In Christ - Forgiving From The Heart This week sees the ninth part of our discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 9 is “Forgiving From The Heart” This week sees the ninth part of our discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 9 is “Forgiving From The Heart”Our relationship with others must have the same basis as our relationship with God. Nothing keeps you in bondage to the past more, or gives the enemy more entrance to your life, than an unwillingness to forgive. The crisis of forgiveness is not so much between you and the person who has offended you, but between you and God. Learning to forgive from the heart sets us free from our past and heals our emotional pain. It’s really for your own sake that you do it.For more information on the Freedom In Christ program see https://www.ficm.org.uk/the_fic_course.We have a number of copies of the study guide available at church for you to take away.

Freedom In Christ - Handling Emotions Well This week sees the eighth part of our discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 8 is “Handling Emotions Well This week sees the eighth part of our discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 8 is “Handling Emotions Well ”We can’t control our emotions directly, but they are, in a general sense, the result of what we choose to believe. If we don’t have a proper understanding of God and His Word, and who we are in Christ, or if we have developed faulty lifegoals, it will be signalled to us through our emotions. Failure to handle emotions well may make us vulnerable to spiritual attack. The more we commit ourselves to the truth and choose to believe that what God says is true, the less our feelings will run away with us.For more information on the Freedom In Christ program see https://www.ficm.org.uk/the_fic_course.We have a number of copies of the study guide available at church for you to take away.

Session 5 is “Our Daily Choice” This week sees the fifth part of our discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 5 is “Our Daily Choice”Christians have a new heart and a new spirit, but we still struggle with many of the unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving that we grew up with (a primary characteristic of what the Bible calls “the flesh”). However, we don’t have to give in to the flesh. We can choose day by day and moment by moment whether to live according to the flesh’s urges or according to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.For more information on the Freedom In Christ program see https://www.ficm.org.uk/the_fic_course.We have a number of copies of the study guide available at church for you to take away.

Freedom In Christ - The World's View Of Truth This week sees the fourth part of our discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 4 is “The World’s View Of Truth” This week sees the fourth part of our discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 4 is “The World’s View Of Truth”The world tries to make us look at reality in a way that is opposed to how God says it actually is. It makes its appeal to us through “the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life”. It also paints a complete but false picture of our reality — our worldview — that varies according to where and when we were brought up. When we become Christians we need to make a radical decision to stop looking at the world in the way we used to and start seeing it from God’s perspective by adopting the Biblical worldview which is “how God says it is”.For more information on the Freedom In Christ program see https://www.ficm.org.uk/the_fic_course.We have a number of copies of the study guide available at church for you to take away.

Freedom In Christ - Who Am I? This week sees the start of our new discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 1 asks "Who am I?". This week sees the start of our new discipleship course, Freedom In Christ. Session 1 asks "Who am I?".When Adam and Eve were created, they had life in all its fullness. They were perfectly accepted, secure, and significant. When Adam sinned, they lost their relationship with God. The result for us is that we were born physically alive but spiritually dead and with a huge need for acceptance, security, and significance. Jesus came to restore the very same life, acceptance, security, and significance that Adam and Eve had originally, and those who receive His free gift of life become brand new creations in Christ. Knowing that we are now “holy ones” who can come boldly into God’s presence without condemnation changes everything.For more information on the Freedom In Christ program see https://www.ficm.org.uk/the_fic_courseWe have a number of copies of the study guide available at church for you to take away.
