When we think of New Year’s Resolutions, we often let fear assist us with failing. We don’t want to set goals, or accomplish success because we let fear capture our hearts. Moses knew a little something about this too. When God gave him a goal to accomplish, Moses tried talking his way out of it, many times. Have you ever been there? God reminds us to start where you are, use what you have, and do what you can in order to walk by faith in 2018. Join us this week in discovering God’s bigger purposes for our lives, and you’ll accomplish more as you walk by faith.
Like King Herod, at the birth of Jesus, we resist the Kingdom of God breaking into our world. Sometimes people forget that God doesn’t come into our world like a tyrant and terrorist, but rather God comes near as a offering of peace, like a little child. God’s Kingdom is breaking into this dark world to take over your kingdom of selfishness and pride. Is it possible that we act like King Herod in our resistance to God’s Kingdom also? We need to be like the wisemen who came seeking proximity to Jesus, bringing gifts of worship to the Savior. We all, like King Herod, have gone astray, but God has come for us like only the Missionary God can.

They were marching through the Sinai desert wilderness for 40 years, and they weren’t too happy about it. All through their experience, they cried out in grumbling and complaining before Moses, and before the Lord. We go through only 10 of their major complaints. Does your life reflect more gratitude, or more complaining? As you hear the news each day, do you find yourself grumbling through life? Join us as we discover ways that God sends us the remedy to our complaining life-style.
The life of Noah is not necessarily one to emulate. He lived during a very awful period in time. Can you imagine everyone living to only please themselves? Can you imagine a time of extreme violence and depravity that would cause God to have a grieving heart? We live in a difficult time today too, so what is the solution? Do we need to all go out and work for our salvation? NO, not a chance. Jesus did the work for us. Jesus died so we could be saved. We need to obey the call of God the Father, and work a little bit with our faith, so that God’s blessing on his people might come through our obedience. Join us as we continue to look at characters of the faith in Hebrews 11.
Genesis 5 gives a genealogy of those who walked with God. Hebrews 11 tells us that Enoch walked with God and was “no more”. He never died. He was just taken to be with God. What kind of legacy are you leaving behind when you are “no more”? When we walk with God in faith, we don’t have to work to please God, we simply depend on His guidance to lead us. Join us as we talk about the faith of those who came before us through Hebrews 11.
