BSL Home Group have the same values / foundation as the Vision, we start off this with the structure of “P.R.A.Y.E.R” which stands as:
P – Practice Praying
R – Read Bible Daily
A – Accountability with Each Others
Y – Yield in Jesus
E – Endurance Encouragement
R – Resist from Temptation / Sins
That’s how the Home Group has been continued since January 2006 and they have the opportunity to experience of ‘PRAYER’ in practical ways. Such as praying together, able to read / sign the bible verses and discussed together, accountability which means responsible for each others as we are the member of God’s Family (brothers and sisters in Christ) in endurance encouragement. As part of yielding (obey) in Jesus, we have the Fellowship in Christ and live the life in obedience of holiness and Home Group is where we can continue focus our Christian Lives with the Fellowship in one another!
In the Bible, Matthew 22:36-40 (NIV) says,
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
That is where the importance of being Christ Follower is live the life full of Love for God firstly and our respond to show our love in action is to love the neighbour as yourself to combined into a True Fellowship of the Christ and One Another.
