Equip Part 1

On Saturday Mum and I headed off to Equip with a few women from church. It worked out so well that Dad flew out the day before Equip (and Mothers Day) so Mum could come and see him off, and then spend the weekend with us.

It’s so encouraging to be in the Sydney Convention Centre with thousands of other Christian Women.

Equip this year focused on 2 Peter; chapter 1.
Di Warren gave the first talk. One thing that she said that struck me was that it’s perfectly normal to be dissatisfied at times with this world. The thing to remember is that as we search for something to satisfy us, while there are many good things in the world given to us from God - nothing will satisfy us fully aside from knowing God.

Now that we know God we should be seeking to live like God, growing in Godliness.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 1: 5-8
