Men's Breakfast

a Biblical thought...
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10)

a Book thought...
Brengle did as much good across the table with friends as he did in meetings. (p199)
a Dave thought...
This morning I conducted the Men's Breakfast at Carrum Downs. It was a great time as we looked at some scriptures from Paul and enjoyed bacon and eggs. I presented the idea of focussing on what God has in mind, and that no matter what comes our way we must persist. I used the analogy of the Ironman Event held last week in Kona and that as these athletes do a 3.8km swim, 180km on the bike and then a 42km run they show determination but also have lived disciplined lives. With our spiritual lives what are we preparing for and how hard are we training? As when the tough times come it will be our everyday training that will help us get through. As Hebrews 12 states "let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith."

Just a thought.
