I hope you were as encouraged as I was this past Sunday. Our journey through the book of 1 Corinthians has been needed and timely. 1 Corinthians 16 was an excellent summary to challenge us as we part ways with this book. It reminded us of the great truths the book unpacks for us as the people of God, the local gathering. One such challenge was to “be watchful.” Brothers and sisters, we must be vigilant in these days to be watchful for our tendencies to doubt, to waiver, to slide down into despair, and to neglect God’s Word. We must be watchful for one another as well, looking for ways to encourage, to meet needs, to serve, and to be generous. All of which should be done in love!
Schedule for this week:
- Disciple-Makers: We will shift gears and focus solely on unpacking God’s Word together, using the skills and techniques we discussed throughout the semester. The link is the same (https://zoom.us/j/501936397). See you at 6:30 pm on Wednesday.
- Sunday Virtual Gathering: Last week, we introduced a new element to our 10 am virtual gathering. It went well, so we intend to use the Zoom webinar again this coming Sunday. You do not have to use zoom; you can still view it through Facebook or our website. Speaking of Sunday, see below for our new sermon series we will start this Sunday. Take some time this week to read the first chapter of Proverbs.
Proverbs | Wisdom for Today
A person gripped with love for God and overwhelmed with His grace will never be the same. His or her life will be marked by an unusual take on life and unfortunate circumstances. They will desire to live for God’s glory and leverage everything for His purposes. But, who are we kidding, that is not easy. Decisions are not as clear cut as we would like them to be, and sometimes an answer can be right in one situation and wrong in another. This is why we desperately need the wisdom to navigate life’s quick and uncertain turns. Proverbs has long been that source of wisdom. It provides insight into what godliness looks like in our day to day affairs. Join us as we look at the nature of wisdom and what it looks like in our lives.
Grace and Peace,
