The week of April 14

The Heart Behind the Cross

The names of God we call on are ways He is at work in us. Luke 15: 11-32 shows the heart of the Father searching the horizon for His younger son.

What are You Speaking?

We all need a positivity upgrade. Proverbs 8:21; James 3: 3-5 Power of speaking Life: Words need to change circumstances, not just describe them. Joel 3: 10, Romans 10:17, Ephesians 4:29, Matthew 12:34, Genesis 1:2&3

Who is Your Circle?

Job, Moses and Jesus demonstrate the influence of a circle of people who hold our arms up when we are weak and stand for the same core values with Jesus as the center of our Circle.

Time of Hiding

I Kings 18-19 relates the contest on Mt. Carmel between Elijah and 450 prophets of Baal but Elijah felt defeated as he sat under a broom tree. Never see life at the end of a tunnel; remember what God has done before and expect the same. He wants to lead us to a deeper season. Psalm 27: 5 He wants to hear our cry and hide us in His shelter. Victory requires preparation for the next victory.

Worship & Doing Life Together

Ezekiel 37: 1-14 Can these bones live? Press into a higher level of worship.Legacy is investing in the next generation’s foundation. Matthew 28: 19-20 To disciple we need to create spaces to do life together, whether it is a book study, Bible study, puzzles, crafts, people with like interests (hunters?).
