Out Of Sodom
Throughout Scripture we see consistent themes of God's sovereignty, man's sinfulness, and the salvation of God's people. The rescue of Lot out of Sodom and Gomorrah is a picture of the greater salvation to be found in Jesus Christ. In this passage we see many parallels to the Good News of Jesus. We see the reality of the impending judgment, the severity of our sin, the offer of salvation, God's ability to save, and the call for us to exhibit a lifestyle of repentance. And underneath it all we see God's sovereign thread of the promise of salvation even in the midst of the darkest sins. May we share this Good News in our community and in our world.

    Gospel Mystery and the Church’s Revelation
    In Ephesians 3, Paul explains that mystery that was given to the prophets in the Old Testament had been revealed. The truth that the Gentiles were now included in the family of Jesus Christ through His gospel was this "mystery" that Paul referred to. The mystery is revealed by God to everyone, and the Church is responsible to share the Good News of Jesus to the world.

    Mercy
    In the parable of the unforgiving servant, our own forgetful tendencies are exposed. We often fail to show others mercy because we forget how much Christ has forgiven us. When we look to Jesus and see the infinite mercy He continues to pour out on us, we can learn to show the same love toward others and learn to forgive as we have been forgiven.

    Beyond The Three Days: Our Need For Jesus Since Eden
    If you journey through the Bible, you can see how the Easter story encompasses far more than just three days. From the early days in Eden, God promised a Messiah that would come to redeem mankind. Jesus, God the Son, was always God's plan. As we live each day, may God open our eyes to see the greatness of Jesus in His Word, and may we share His Good News with others.

    Who Is My Neighbor Pt.2
    The lawyer in Luke 10 was hoping to be able to justify himself by asking Jesus to clarify who his neighbor was. If loving his neighbor neighbor meant loving his fellow Jews, he likely would have been justified. However, Jesus made it very clear to him, and all of us, that loving our neighbor means that we must lay down our pride, and serve all people no matter their race or beliefs. May we truly seek to love God, love people, and love others by displaying and declaring the good news of Jesus Christ.

    Who Is My Neighbor Pt.1
    In Luke 10, Jesus was approached by a lawyer who asked Jesus how he might inherit eternal life. Jesus modeled what it means to love God and your neighbors with your whole heart. This is not possible for us apart from God's supernatural work within us. May we truly love God with everything we are, and may God's love flow from our lives to everyone we encounter.

    A Genesis Heart
    David was a man after God's own heart, but even he gave into his sinful desires and needed to repent. In Psalm 51, we see a man broken over his sin and in need of restoration. He needed God to create in him a clean heart out of nothing, a Genesis heart. May we follow David's example and daily confess our sins to God and repent of them. Turn to Christ as your ultimate satisfaction and enjoy the true joy of a relationship with Him.

    Repent And Return To Christ
    When famine hit the south country where Abram and his family resided, he chose to go down into Egypt rather than trust God for provision. He also compromised his marriage by telling the Egyptian Pharaoh that Sarai was his sister. Abram needed to come to a place of repentance and turn from his sin and turn to God. May we repent of our disobedience and return to Jesus as our true satisfaction.

    Operating From God’s Success
    God called Abraham to leave his life of paganism and his mindset of operating from man's success. Abraham turned to God and chose to live his life from God's success rather than his own. May we see the finished work of Christ on the cross as the means by which we can live victoriously. When we love God, love people, and love our world, we can see God restore people to Himself.

    Moses: Regret and Redemption
    Throughout Moses' life, we can see how God sovereignly worked despite Moses' failures and regrets. Moses’ life was not a failure because his life was about much more than his story. May we live in a way that points others to Jesus and look to Him to be the example of which we live our lives.
