Who rules your screens? Or are your screens ruling you? Smart phones, TV, computers, video game devices, tablets, smart watches and other electronic devices easily turn us into captives of technology. When we allow our screens to control us, to distract us from the truly important moments and relationships, and to steal more time from our lives than we like to admit, then we need to spend just 40 more minutes in front of a screen watching today’s message for the solution to this problem.
A central question throughout the 8 seasons of Game of Thrones is “Who is the right person to end up on the throne?” Our lives are like the theme of Game of Thrones. There is a brokenness in the soul of everyone, because we are all convinced we know better about how to run our lives than our Creator does. We directly and indirectly say “Well, I know who is best on the throne of MY life. ME!” We want to live on our own terms, even when it comes to following Jesus.
Memorial Day: How Far?
On Memorial Day, we celebrate and remember the loss of life that gave us our freedoms. Each Sunday, we proclaim and celebrate Jesus who died and was resurrected for us. As Christians, we need to invest in others so they know Christ.
Clay: Restored by Faith
Sometimes we try to change our shape-we want to be a vase instead of a bowl. God wants to restore us to what He created us to be. He wants to restore all the pieces that are out of place in our lives, but it takes an step of faith. By faith, we allow God to do the molding and shaping!
Our hearts may look/feel like a desert, dust that cannot be molded. But with a little water, it forms clay which can be molded into the form desired by the potter. Love does the molding and God is not quite finished with us. Our final form has not been completed.
God never throws away the broken pieces of our lives; He redeems all of them. He uses each one of them. What once was ugly and heartbreaking becomes beautiful and breathtaking.
We are shaped by God’s hands. God often uses others to shape us and He uses us to shape others. In the message today, Brittany Bentley shares some of her life-changing experiences in this process.
“…As the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand.” Jeremiah 18:6
