God Is Speaking To You

Psalm 139

When God looked at the world He'd made, He declared it good. Making man - male and female - in His image was the crowning achievement of His creative work (Genesis 1:27). Psalm 139 reminds us that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made."

The Lord has given each of His children great potential for service in His kingdom. However, some of us have serious doubts that this is true. When we compare ourselves to other people, we notice the things we lack. At other times, we repeatedly criticize ourselves for mistakes we've made. How can we have awesome potential when we see so many ways in which we fall short?

When he was growing up in Pharaoh's household, Moses appeared to have many advantages. Then he killed an Egyptian and fled the country. No longer did he seem a likely candidate to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. But God looked beyond what Moses had done and saw who he could become.

Before being saved, the apostle Paul vehemently opposed those who believed in Jesus. Yet through God's mercy, he became a mighty evangelist and author of several New Testament books. Peter was a simple fisherman who denied - not once but three times - that he knew Jesus. Still, the Lord chose him to become the leader of the Jerusalem church.

Our Father sees beyond our human frailties to the potential we have in Christ. Because we were made in His image and His Spirit dwells in us, we have a greater capacity for spiritual transformation and service than we could imagine. Seek to becomethe person God desires for you to be.

Current Sermon Series:

      In every man's life, there is a cause worth fighting for and a victory worth claiming. What is yours? Discover how to not only prepare for the battles ahead, but more importantly, how to emerge victoriously. It's time to stop playing the role of the nice guy and instead live as The Warrior.
      We will look into: The Warrior's Cause, The Hesitant Warrior, The Wounded Warrior, The Distracted Warrior, and The Passionate Warrior.

Last Week: How do we deal with hurt? By forgiving those who hurt us through Christ, and by accepting them, not the actions, but who they are, through Christ. We need to speak into our kids the truth of God's Word, give them verbal affirmation for who they are.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our website, just under the calendar, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week: We will continue looking at The Warrior by looking into The Wounded Warrior.
