CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I Pet. 2:9-10 NASB

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a hold nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of the darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”

The King James renders “a people of God’s own possession” as “a peculiar people”. We are set apart and different because we belong to God. Therefore, what should be look like? Should we act differently than those who are not God’s possession? The Bible teaches that we should be different. Think about how you behave around people who are not believers. Can they tell that you act differently? That you have a higher moral standard? If there is nothing about how we present ourselves to the world that looks different, then we have some work to do. We should stand out in a crowd in the way that we act. This is my challenge. Ask yourself this, “Do the people around me know that I am a follower of Christ by the way I act? If the answer is “no”, then work on making changes to make yourself “peculiar”.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
There are many “one anothers” scattered throughout the Bible. There a few in particular that I want to present for today.

Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. (James 5:16)

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.(Colossians 3:16)

and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.(Hebrews 10:24‭-‬25)

These are all things that we can do as part of worship to God, but they are also meant to build each other up. Worship may have looked a little different for a big part of the year or perhaps worship hasn’t been a regular part of your life at all. I would like to encourage you to make sure you are taking advantage of this resource.

MOLESKIN:
We covered a lot more distance than I originally thought we might. Great job!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
So, at the first of the year, YHC stated that I was going to start to take a few minutes to start my day in prayer. I am sad to report that I have failed miserably. I may have gotten a couple of days at the beginning, but that was it. At JUCO, Spotter has been issuing a monthly challenge. His choice for March: 10 straight minutes of prayer and meditation. Before beginning, I thought “how am I going to fill 10 minutes”? Sad right? You know what? It was super easy! I just started talking to God about all the things on my mind and before I knew it, 10 minutes were gone. Here is my challenge: participate in this monthly challenge. What a way to build our relationship with the Father!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
YHC has been following a Bible reading plan to go through the Bible in a year. It is a chronological study and I just finished up Job. The book of Job has a lot of great lessons. Lessons about struggle and trusting in God. This morning, I wanted to focus on Job’s friends. His friends came to him in a time of need. They sat with him for 7 days and the Bible says that no-one spoke during this time. When they did speak, they started trying to figure out what Job most have done wrong to bring on the agony that he had experienced. In fact, Job had done nothing wrong. His friends, though their intentions were most likely good, they were not exactly encouraging. The message this morning was to encourage those around us when they are going through difficult times. We as men often try to fix things when we think there is something that can be fixed. More often than not, all it takes is making it known that we are there to support our brothers.

6 PAX this morning.
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
The influences around us impact our character whether we admit it or not. Fellowship is meant to allow us to surround ourselves with good influence, those of like mind, and those that help to build each other up. Make the effort to take advantage of this. Now more than ever, we are limited with options, but try to get creative. F3 workouts are a great way to build relationships that hopefully will last a lifetime. From our website, “Embracing “the suck” (as we call it) of a physically exhausting workout bonds men together in a way few other things can.” Here is a passage of scripture that comes to mind.

“Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”- 1 Corinthians 15:33.
