MONDAY'S HERE!

One of the amazing lessons in Matthew 10 is the simple pattern for living a Christ-focused mission-oriented life:

  • See what Jesus sees
    • Feel what Jesus feels
      • Pray what Jesus prays
        • Receive what Jesus gives
          • Say what Jesus says
            • Do what Jesus does

This week, my prayer for our church family is that we would walk slowly through the places we find ourselves and pay attention to what Jesus shows us.  And then, to act with courage to announce and demonstrate the reign of God's kingdom.

~ Pastor Jon

CHILDREN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL CONNECTING POINT

The Gospel Project for Kids took on a spy mission this week. Spies were sent into the land of promise. They had finally arrived! The problem was most of the people who went in to spy were having problems believing that they could conquer the people who lived there. Bigger problem … God had told them they could take it, so why worry? Two of those spies, Joshua and Caleb, knew that God was true and that He would lead them to victory. The problem became helping the others see that God was true to His word.

The crowd, unfortunately, followed the dissenters who said the people of the land were too large and that Israel could not take the promised land. The people sinned. How does God respond when His people sin? Sin has a price, but God is always willing to forgive when people seek forgiveness.

Joshua and Caleb were not perfect, but they lived a life of obedience to God. Joshua would one day lead the people of Israel into the promised land. His accomplishments point to Christ’s finished work on the cross—defeating Satan, setting people free from sin, and making a way into the promised land of eternity.
