Ask It-Edged Out
When it comes to temptation and decision-making, we all look for loopholes. But it’s a bad idea to assume that if something is not wrong, it’s right. Our decision-making filter shouldn’t be based on what’s permissible, but on what’s wise.
Ask It-Edged Out
Vision Part 1-Rearview Mirror
2020 Vision is always changing methods without changing direction. A method that is
SIMPLE-show Jesus to the world and love others.
SLOW-become un-busy so we can connect to God and others.
SUSTAINABLE-use our strengths and God-given purpose to serve our community.
At The Movies: Spiderman-Into the Spider-verse
Miles found life when he was willing to give his away. We find life when we are willing to follow Jesus, give up our lives, and go wherever he asks us to go. The best stories are about change, the best lives are those changed by Jesus.
At the Movies: Shazam
While the name of Shazam gave Billy and his family their powers, the name of Jesus is the one that can change our lives. Salvation is found in no one else. The only name that gives freedom and promises real life-Jesus!
At The Movies: Christopher Robin
Christopher Robin tells Pooh, ““I’m not a hero, Pooh. I’m lost.”
Jesus said, “For I, the Son of Man, came to find and restore people who are lost.” Luke 19:10
At The Movies: Lego Movie 2
Being vulnerable and sharing our flaws and struggles is a way to connect with others. No one can relate to perfection and when we’re authentic, we realize we are not alone.
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.
Mother’s Day-Truth and Time
It is amazing how women have such an influence in the life of children and even adults by telling truth and investing time in us. Some of the most influential people in church history have been women!
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.
