What does it mean to walk by faith?” Pastor John Piper’s acronym A.P.T.A.T. outlines five practical steps for walking by faith no matter what trial, challenge, or heartache you are facing:
1. Admit you can do nothing without God (John 15:5).
2. Pray for help (Psalm 50:15).
3. Trust a specific promise (2 Chronicles 20:20).
4. Act (Philippians 2:12–13).
5. Thank God for his provision and goodness (Psalm 106:1).
The CfC Open Day was held on the 25th of November with our theme being “gratitude”. In this edition we wish to share some of that experience with you.
“Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works! Glory in His holy name; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD! Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face evermore! Remember His marvellous works which He has done, …” (1 Chronicles 16:8-12a)
Dear partner in Ministry,
In 1 Corinthians 3:9 Paul says “For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building”. The context of this verse reveals that reaching people is God’s work and Paul reminds us that God can use various instruments in order to gather a harvest for His Kingdom.
He uses two analogies – planting and building. Some plant, others water and others reap, but the harvest belongs to the Lord. In the building metaphor he explains that there are various workers involved in building but that each should build with care (:10) ensuring that all the building is founded on the cornerstone Christ Jesus.
