Manna from heaven everyday. If you grew up in the wilderness for the first forty years of your life, you wouldn’t know anything different. Many people have tried to imagine what manna could have been had God chosen to use natural means.
This Sunday we’ll see that nothing in the vineyard of our Lord truly belongs to us. Our God is letting us use the gifts he’s given us for his glory. At any time he can ask for those gifts back. One of those gifts is money. There are a few places that our money must go – the government and our God are two of those places that Jesus will address this Sunday. We close out our series In the Vineyard this Sunday as we talk about financial stewardship.
What does good fruit look like? I think by the time a person can drive they have a clue about picking produce from the store, but what does good fruit look like in the life of a Christian. We’re going to jump back into the vineyard with our Lord this week and see what he has to say on the topic.
This Sunday we are In The Vineyard with Jesus. We’ll look at the stewardship of what our God has given us. Last Sunday we looked at our time – it’s a valuable commodity. This Sunday we’ll look at our work. What do you do? Is one job more important than another? Does our God have anything to say about it?
How does God supply the needs of a whole world everyday? How can there be that much food for everyone? In our lesson from Matthew 14 we’ll see that Jesus called on the disciples to trust in him by giving them a situation they could not handle. This week we continue our series on the Extraordinary Ordinary Life of a Christian.
The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of the Christian is one that Seeks Spiritual Wealth. What exactly does that look like? Our Lord points us in the right direction with a series of parables. Once you find spiritual wealth, it is worth more than anything else in the world.
