January 25th News- Blessed are the those who hunger and thirst for righteousness

January 24, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:BE-Atitudes

This week we will continue our series on the Beatitudes found in Matthew 5:1-12.

As we listen to Jesus’ words here, we discover that he is describing a new way for us to live right-side-up in an up-side-down world.

The third Beatitude is found Matthew 5:6

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,  for they will be filled. 

What does it mean to “hunger and thirst for righteousness”? What is righteousness?!? Once again Jesus causes us to think and wonder about what he is saying. But that’s a good thing! We will look at scripture to discover what he is telling his followers…

That’s what we’ll be talking about this Sunday. To prepare, you can also read, Philippians 3:4-11, John 6:26-40, and Isaiah 55:1-7.

I also want to remind you that we have combined our Sunday service with Faith Community Church for the next few months as their pastor, Troy Smith, is on a sabbatical.  If you remember, we did this at the end of the summer for a month as well. The big change for us is that our service time will be moved back from 9:15am to 10:00am.

NEW SERVICE TIME:  10am

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series: Promises from the Upper Room
In several places in John 13-17, Jesus refers to a Counselor or Comforter who will come after he has returned to the Father. In this message, we learn about the third person of the Trinity– the Holy Spirit.

This week we continue our series called  The Lord of the Story.

This week we will catch a brief glimpse of another Biblical hero who may surprise you. His name is Jacob and he is the second son (the younger twin) of Isaac (Abraham’s son). In this story, the “hero” steals the blessing of his father from his brother (not very nice at all).

What is happening here? What does it mean to me? Why does God tell his story using a conniving schemer like Jacob? For answers to these and other questions come Sunday.

To prepare you can read all about Jacob in Genesis 25-33… The particular story we will focus on is found in Genesis 27:1-35.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week we continue our series called  The Lord of the Story.

Abraham as been called the “father of all who believe” (Romans 4:11). That means that Abraham is the “father” of all Christians.

So, what do you know about this incredible character in the Bible? His story is an important one because we shall see that (and I keep saying this!) his story is our story too.

This week we will cover a lot of territory and look at the life of Abraham. Probably the best know part of his story is when God tells him to sacrifice his son. How do we reconcile that story with a loving God? Well, come Sunday and find out.

To prepare for this Sunday, there is a lot you can read. Abram’s (God later changes his name to Abraham) story is found in Genesis 12 through Genesis 22. For Sunday, we will focus on Genesis 12:1-5, Genesis 15, Genesis 17, and Genesis 22:1-14.

I know this is a lot of Scripture… But he is the father of all who believe.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
