This is the third of four talks focusing on what we do when we gather together as church. The talks focuses on our need to seek God's help, most obviously through prayer, but more fundamentally by feeding on Jesus through the bread and wine of communion and the word of God.

    • Seeking God’s Help
      “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and
      you will find; knock and the door will be
      opened to you. For everyone who asks
      receives; he who seeks finds; and to him
      who knocks, the door will be opened. Which
      of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will
      give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for
      an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then,
      though you are evil, know how to give good
      gifts to your children, how much more will
      your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to
      those who ask him!"
    • “The bread of God is he who comes
      down from heaven and gives life to
      the world”.
      “I am the bread of life.
      He comes to me will never go hungry
      and he who believes in me will never
      be thirsty”.
    • When we gather together as church:
      • Communion: the bread and wine of Jesus.
    • Jesus says, "I tell you the truth, unless you
      eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his
      blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats
      my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal
      life, and I will raise him up at the last
      day. For my flesh is real food and my blood
      is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and
      drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.
      Just as the living Father sent me and I live
      because of the Father, so the one who feeds
      on me will live because of me”.
    • When we gather together as church:
      • Communion: the bread and wine of Jesus.
      • The Bible: feed on God’s word.
    • We gather:
      • In God’s presence
      • To offer God worship
      • To seek God’s help in prayer.
      • To feed on Jesus through his word and the bread and wine.
      • To receive the life and help of the Holy Spirit.
