Something I gained in Lifegroup

When I first went to Lifegroup, I had no idea what it was about, only that some people got together to study the Bible,

and I couldn’t think of anything more boring than that other than watching paint dry.


Since that was my only other choice most Sundays, I decided to give it a try. I’d already decided to be a Christian, so why not learn more about it.

When I got there, I didn’t know what to think. There was a group of people, sitting and having coffee together (or in my case, hot chocolate) and chatting and laughing.


They looked like normal people! Well, here is the breaking news…
They Are!
I was confused, weren’t we supposed to be sitting down and seriously diving “deep” into the Bible and talking about weird stuff?


What I really found was a group of friends. Not just people passing through my life, and not people who were there the one week, and gone the next. These people were there for me every week.


More than that, They were there for me during the week too; having breakfast together, and celebrating my birthday.
Every low point in my life those friends are still there for me, and every high point, those same friends are right there to be happy with me.

What is courage?

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. ~Ambrose Redmoon

When I was in school, A teacher told me two stories.

A man (let’s call him Jack) was in the middle of a war. He saw his brother die right in front of him. In his anger he went blazing up a hill into a heavily fortified enemy camp, killed all the people there, and became a hero.

Another man (let’s call him Mike), was also in the war. But he was a medic. He heard someone groaning in a field, and even knowing that the enemy regularly patrolled the area, he went to try and pull the injured man out to a safe place. While he was tending to the injured man, he heard people approaching. He hid both himself and the injured man under the bodies of dead soldiers till an enemy patrol had gone past. He then pulled the man to safety.

Which man do you think was braver?
