2018 Theme: DISCIPLINE

At The Church at The River, our theme for 2018 is DISCIPLINE.

Lord, You have not given us a spirit of fear,
but of power, love and of self-discipline.
Every day I will pray and meditate on Your word,
hiding it in my heart so that I might not sin
against You. I crucify this flesh with its passions
and desires, living according to the Spirit so that
My mind will be governed by life and peace
I pray for love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control,
making my spirit strong. Strong to run the race so
that I may obtain the ultimate prize
Through discipline, I subjugate my body
So that I will preach to others with certainty
Making disciples of all nations, baptizing them and
teaching them to obey everything You have commanded
Chastening may be painful now but yields the peaceable
fruit of righteousness for those who have been trained
by it. Godliness is profitable for all things, and I have
the promise of that life that now is and that eternal life
which is to come. For if I live according to the flesh,
I will die. But if by the Spirit I put to death the deeds
of the body, I will live. I pray not to be conformed to
this world, but to be transformed by the renewing
of my mind, that I may prove what is that good
and acceptable and perfect will of God
I press toward the goal for the prize
of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus
For I am the light of the world, and
I pray that my light may shine before me,
That they may see my good works and glorify You in heaven.
Amen.
