What does a great faith look like? Jesus holds up an unlikely example for the Jews. A great faith is unselfish, Christ-centered, humble, and holds to every word of God. This week we’ll explore parts of a great faith.
“What are you doing? What is going on?!” Why was a crowd pushing this man to the front. He didn’t know what was going on. He couldn’t hear. Jesus shows his compassion here by taking the man away from the crowd and healing him. This wasn’t a sideshow; this was a child of God who needed to be helped.
It’s Back to School Sunday and we are talking about wisdom. The days are evil – anyone watching the news can see that. What can we do with our time? Teaching our children is a great idea. Teaching ourselves is good too. God has some great advice for us as we touch on education.
There is an exhaustion that cannot be cured with sleep. Rest for the soul is an elusive concept. Pleasure, money, or fame cannot energize the soul that is dragged down by guilt. There is only one cure for the weary soul. Jesus is the bread of life. That has always been the case. In our message this morning we will see the prophet Elijah – who should’ve been riding high – hit rock bottom.
Join us as we study how Elijah found rest in his merciful God. So can you!
What does a spiritual make over look like? Before we get there, the Apostle Paul spends some time with us describing our old ugly state. This can be helpful because while we stand before God perfect and holy by faith in Jesus. We can show our love for God by changing our ways. Want to hear more?
