Shepherds’ Notes

As you know, our theme this year is EQUIP. Justin’s lessons are mostly focusing on equipping the saints. To be equipped is to be provided with whatever is required for use or for any undertaking in terms of knowledge and equipment.

We need equipment for almost anything we do in life. To repair an engine, we need a certain set of tools. When we embark on a journey or voyage, we usually take all the equipment we will need while we are away.

Our Wednesday evening adult class will revolve around equipping each of us to be better husbands, fathers, wives, mothers, teachers, mentors, and even evangelists. By doing so, we hope to equip each of us to be better Christians. 

The book Hebrews speaks to this matter of equipment relative to the doing of God’s will. “Now the God of peace…. equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight through Jesus Christ” (Hebrews 13:20-21).

The more thoroughly we are equipped the more we will bear the fruit to the glory of God. (Col. 1:9-10).

The elders hope to see you at this special class.
