Resources

This weekend we rely on a good old, timeless subject: love. The world knows this weekend as “Mother’s Day”. Not really a religious holiday, but the theme of a Mother’s Love is VERY Christian so it’s a GREAT theme for the weekend.
The scripture is John 15:9-13. People may remember that we used that scripture very recently. That’s ok. It’s a great one. Verse 13 specifically says, “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”
Love is sacrificial. Moms love sacrificially. I found out years after, that my own mom often purposely went without so Jan and I could have a little more. Loving moms are a great example of how God loves us. The tie-in to Stranger Things is that Will’s mom Joyce, willingly sacrifices herself to save her son. Wow! Pretty Christian. Looking forward to meeting you!
Rev. Jim

Goliath Must Fall

I love our new study, Goliath Must Fall. Gretchen is one of my favorite bible teachers because her love for the Bible is so deep. This week, author Louis Giglio offered this insight: rejected people reject people. He then shared the acceptance we have in Jesus. Jesus loved us so much, accepted us so completely, desired relationship with us so greatly that he endured the cross.
Louis posed an awesome question- are you living for acceptance? Or from acceptance?
Praying we all hear the word of God pointing us to truth: we are invited to live from acceptance!
Love and light, Pastor Heather
