As we continue reading through the Book of Luke, this week we are reading chapters 12 - 15. When you get to chapter 15, Jesus tells 3 stories to his audience to communicate one significant point. Something happens in the first two verses that cause Jesus to feel the need to express what God values in contrast to popular opinion in that day. Take some time to consider what God values as you read that chapter. How do His values match our own? This Sunday, we will be discussing how to practically live out His values
As we have been talking in recent weeks about the many catalysts God uses to grow our faith, one of the top six is WORSHIP. It is possible to not only grow, but to experience God's presence as we worship. Join us this week as we seek to grow spiritually as we praise the Living God in worship.
How do you and I grow spiritually or mature in ways that know Jesus in such a way that He is the lead on our lives? We have kicked around the idea of daily spiritual exercises that can help us in this area, in addition to the storms of life that can drive us to Jesus in hopes that He will provide peace and calm in a squall. This week we will consider the third of 6 different catalysts which can foster growth: our understanding of the Bible. I hope you can join us early for refreshments - we start at 10am Embassy Suites. Enjoy the snow and stay warm in the meantime!
