God's GPS
Hebrews 13:20-21
hr1

Hebrews 13:20-21 are two verses that give me great encouragement, Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. These verses teach us that God is working in us all the time to bring us to maturity, our destiny in Christ.

A friend of mine shared a brilliant illustration of this one time. He likened God's guidance to that of the Global Positioning System (GPS), one of those systems they now have in cars that guides you to your destination. A GPS system uses a satellite to give an aerial view, and its sole function is to get you to your destination, your "destiny."

As you travel to your destination, you have a map on the screen, and this little annoying voice talking to you through the whole trip, "Left turn a quarter mile ahead; left turn 150 feet ahead; left turn 50 feet ahead." If you miss your turn, it immediately computes a new course for you so you can get back to where you are supposed to be. And if you mess up on those directions, it then computes another new course.

In the same way, God has a destiny for us to fulfill, something that fits into His great master plan. By His grace, He is guiding us all the way, even when we get off track. God just readjusts and says, "This is the next thing you need to do to get back into My plan."

Through His "GPS," He is always working to get us where we need to be. Praise God!

LAST SUNDAY
     Yesterday we started a new series called Kaleo which is a Greek word that means called, and in this series, we are going to look at four specific callings of the followers of Christ. The first calling that we looked at is that as disciples of Jesus, we are Called To Care from Philippians 2 and Luke 10. This message will be on the website by the end of today, for those who may have missed it. Next week we will be getting into the aspect that we are Called To Generosity from II Corinthians 8. We hope that you are able to make it, for this challenging series.

MEN & LADIES' BIBLE STUDIES
     For the months of January, February and March, we will not be having our Sunday Night Bible Studies. In lieu of this service we are encouraging our Men and Women to join the Bible Studies that will be going on throughout the week.
     The ladies have been meeting on Sunday nights at 6 PM at various homes. The ladies are going through a book entitled, Becoming More Than Just A Good Bible Study Girl by Lysa Terkeurst.
     Likewise, the men are having their study on Saturdays at 9:30 AM. The men are going through Spiritual Leadership by J. Oswald Sanders.
     If you missed signing up for this or are interested in joining, itís not too late to join. Please see Pamela Bish for the ladies, and Pastor Robinson for the men. We pray and hope to see you involved in these studies. It is a great source of fellowship and study.
