Mutually Responsible and Accountable (Jan 24, 2021)
Welcome to Real Life Christian Communities. We believe you did not arrive here by accident. God has led you to this site.

Here is the Guide for this Sunday’s Online Worship Experience
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Worshiping God requires soul preparation. Therefore, prepare yourself well. Sleep early and wake up early. Avoid staying up late on a Saturday night. Dedicate your whole being to the Lord. In the morning, take a bath and dress up, as if you are going to meet someone special. Prepare the room where you will be watching. If possible, cast it on the largest TV screen. Make sure there are no distractions. Come into the presence of the Lord with thanksgiving in your heart. Don’t slouch in bed or on your sofa. Be ready to worship Him fully with your whole being. If appropriate, stand up and raise your hands! You can also dance if you like.
SOUL PREPARATION (30 MINUTES)
Lord, help us to hear your message today. Give us ears to hear and eyes to see, so that we can fulfill your purpose for our lives. We want to be stronger together. But we cannot do it on our own. We need your help, Lord, and also each other’s help. Please guide us to see this truth today. Help us to understand what your Spirit is saying to us through your word. We open our hearts to you, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Read the passage below slowly and meditatively at least three times. Ask God to direct your eyes to a word, phrase, or sentence that He wants to use to speak to you. Then, share with one another the word, phrase, or sentence that the Lord has led you to focus on. Optional: You can also share why that word, phrase, or sentence impacted you.
Read this Passage – Philippians 2:12-13
Fellowship in the presence of the Lord (eating together)
Prepare some food and drink and eat together in the presence of the Lord. Catch up with each other. Do some “soul talk.” Encourage one another in the Lord. Don’t forget to pray for each other at the end of your fellowship and conversation. Remember these Scriptures:
“So then, my brothers and sisters, when you gather to eat, you should all eat together.” (1 Cor 11:33)
They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God, and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. (Acts 2:46b-47)
Silence and Solitude
Spend a few minutes in silence and solitude as you prepare your soul to encounter God through His word today. Remember, there will be a five-minute countdown before the service begins. This a good time to be quiet.
MAIN ONLINE SERVICE (60 minutes)
Join us now in worship and in listening to God’s word through our Premiere video broadcast.
3. We need to clarify what TRANSFORMATION involves.
13 …for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
Transformation involves God’s work in us through the Holy Spirit. Understanding what God is doing in us is far more important than understanding what God is doing around us. Often our focus is to understand why certain things are happening around us. We fail to see what God is doing inside of us to transform us. This kind of work can only be understood through co-discernment, or when brothers and sisters come together to discern what the Lord is saying to each person and how the Lord wants each of us to respond. Spiritual friendship is the key to becoming spiritually healthy as a community.
PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER
Please take the time to pray for one another. This is important. Thanks!
