Start your day: Worship and a word from Fiona

Give Me an Undivided Heart, that I May Fear Your Name.

 “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to have all of you, to sift you like wheat.”

Luke 22.31

Jesus predicts the betrayal of Jesus, to which Peter responds that he would go to prison for Jesus or even die for him. However within a few hours Peter denied three times that he even knew Jesus!
Peter was afraid of what might happen to him if he admitted that he was a disciple of Jesus and thought it was easier just to keep quiet and pretend he had nothing to do with Him. When he realised his mistake, he wept bitterly, in repentance.

However, even after that betrayal, Peter went on to become an encourager to those who were facing persecution. His betrayal didn’t cause him to give up.
Have you ever hidden away from a difficult situation? Have you ever denied being involved with something, when there is conflict? Sometimes it’s easier to back out, rather than face admitting something that could cause trouble.

How determined are you to have an undivided heart, and to be honest and faithful no matter what the circumstances?
We are blessed in this country to be able to be followers of Jesus and to worship in freedom, without fear of persecution. Let us not take that for granted and let us remember always to be grateful. Let our prayer be real, asking for an undivided heart and honouring God’s name by the way we live and behave.

Father God, give me courage to stand firm against evil and to remain strong enough to do what is right in your sight in all situations with an undivided heart. Amen.

2-3 Workshops:
Option 1: Dealing with Disability - Jade Reynolds (Main Room)

How can I be a Christian and have a chronic illness? Does healing still happen today? What about when it doesn’t? How do we love those who remain sick or chronically ill? Jade Reynolds, who has been paralysed since the age of 12, shares her experience and thoughts as a disabled woman who has personally wrestled with these questions.

Option 2: Crossing Cultures - Jaz Potter (Authentic Room)

In the book of Galatians (3v28) we are reminded that there is no Greek, no Jew, no slave, no free, no male, no female for we are all one in Christ Jesus. This workshop seeks to help understand our current context and how we can become champions of diversity, so that we can all be one in Christ Jesus.
