God is Faithful by Tonia Smith

The word faithful come from the Hebrew word "aman" and the Greek word "pistos". Both words communicate the idea of certainty or stability. An appropriate illustration would be a strong column that holds up the weight of a building or strong arms of a father that upholds and protects his helpless child. When the word faithful is used with regard to God, it means that He is worthy of absolute trust, and that His people can depend upon Him without doubt or reservation. It is important to understand that God is faithful, not because He does everything that His people desire, but because He does everything that He has promised.

Tonia lead us in scripture reading on these attributes of God:

God's unlimited power:Psalm 36:5, 100:5, 146:6, 135:5-6
God's covenants with us:Deuteronomy 7:9, 1 Kings 8:23-24
Words of God:Jeremiah 31:35-37, 33:20-21
He is faithful in all He does:Psalm 33:4
How we should trust in God:Psalm 31:14, Isaiah 26:4, Proverbs 3:5-6
His promises: Romans 4:20-21, Hebrews 11:6
How we should proclaim Him to All: Psalm 40:10, Jeremiah 17:5-8

There we a lot more we talked about but this is just to welt your desire to join us and hear the whole story.

Power of the Holy Spirit
Presented by Hope Niemier

How does God speak to us?
Old testament-In many ways: angels, visions, dreams, miraculous signs.
In the Gospels-Through His Son.
Book of Acts through the present day-Holy Spirit

God speaks by the Holy Spirit Through the Bible, prayer, circumstances, and the church to reveal Himself, His purposes, and His ways. (From 'Experiencing God' book)

Knowing God's voice-intimate love relationship with God.

Disobedience can lead to a 'famine of hearing the words of the Lord' (Amos 8:11-12)

Video: 'Holy Spirit' by Francis Chan

Questions Hope asked us to ponder:
How has the Holy Spirit impacted our lives?
Can someone who isn't a believer know by seeing your life that you follow Christ?
When was the last time you heard of non-Christians amazed by a gathering of believers?
How you ever seen something that can't be explained apart from the Holy Spirit?
