Fearfully and Wonderfully Made - 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 become the person God desires for you to be.

Current Sermon Series
      Can you imagine what could happen if we gave control of our life to God? It's scary, but the benefits are world-altering. The life of Elisha challenges us to answer God's calling and take the risks that are necessary to do His will. It's time we start taking risks and making decisions the world doesn't understand. Come see what life can look like when we let go, when we decide to have 'Ridiculous Faith'.

Last Week:
      We serve an amazing God. He wants to help us as we walk with Him. So, what do you do, when you don't have much? Stop waiting for what you want & start working with what you have. We need to offer God what we have & trust Him to give us what we need.

Next Week:
      We will finish out our series on Elisha by looking into Ridiculous Recovery.
