Ecclesiastes – Pt.6 How should one approach God? Your words have weight, don’t take them lightly. Approach God with fear (reverence). Not as in “be scared”, but with great humility and respect.
Ecclesiastes – Pt.5 Ecclesiastes presents three ways to live better.
Ecclesiastes – Pt.4 Justice is a desire for Gods will. But this world is filled with injustice. Jesus will judge and make all things right.
Ecclesiastes – Pt.3 Time is powerful. Time is limited. God is sovereign over time. We need to trust Jesus with the fullness of the time we have been given.
Ecclesiastes – Pt.2 Knowledge does not satisfy, with wisdom comes vexation. we only find meaning in God.
Ecclesiastes – Pt.1 Where do you draw meaning? The author of Ecclesiastes (Solomon) begins looking at the many world views that offer meaning and recognizes that all is futile without God.
The day to day Christian walk can be very challenging. Look to Jesus as out model. The source of our help and the source of grace.
Overcome the obstacles to faith. God is bigger than your fears. God is bigger than all of your sins. File Chapter 11 on your fears, your pride, your sin and receive the grace He offers.
Hebrews 11:8-22 Hebrews 12:1-2
As believers in Christ we are under Chapter 11 protection. We place our lives in the protection of Gods promises. What is faith? What is it not? What does faith do? Don’t get trapped in today’s false dichotomy of faith. Have a firm, settled, confidence in God’s plans.
Liferoads has made a big move. We moved buildings. Now What? First let’s ask, “Who are we?” We are rooted in the Bible as truth. We are Jesus is center. As Peter told Jesus, “To whom would we go? You have words of eternal life.” Let us prayerfully consider what God is calling us to next – in bringing life abundant (Jn 10:10b).
A crippled man is healed through Peter and he tells the crowd, “You have put to death the author of life, but God has raised Him [so repent and receive His grace].” This is a metaphor for us, crippled and in need of His healing. Turn to His grace.
