The exalted are humbled. I know it doesn’t always look that way, but it’s true! The word for exalt has the idea of something swelling in size. I suppose we picture the head of a movie star or some other celebrity that swells to twice its normal size.
Focused on Prayer
In a sense, prayer comes naturally to us. We want so we ask. We hurt so we cry out. We are frustrated so we vent. We are blessed so we give thanks. So we sometimes define prayer as “speaking to God from the heart.” Seems so easy. What does not come naturally, however, is the focused prayer God wants for us.
Come to the Banquet
Come to the banquet and eat! Wisdom is holding a banquet and you’re invited. This Sunday we’ll dig into the book of Proverbs to see how these words from Solomon can change your life.
From Many One
God has made his Christian church one, but it sure doesn’t look that way! This Sunday we’ll see how God’s church is a powerful force for good in the world, but that isn’t the church’s main purpose. It is through the church that the world will meet Jesus.
There are some BIG changes coming up in our worship this Sunday. God will be doing the heavy lifting in the hearts of people everywhere who hear his word.
We walk by faith and not by sight. The world around us screams messages of temptation, hate, and despair. Our God whispers peace, love, and joy. We celebrated the vision of faith shared by two young members of our congregation on this Confirmation Sunday.
