Time - Ecclesiastes 3:1-17
Humanity is created to glorify God in our time. That means living life prioritizing our time in ways that accomplish all we are created to do.
What are you hoping and waiting for this Christmas? Is it for Christ to make Himself more present to you? Anything else is misplaced hope. Any other waiting and longing will inevitably disappoint.
As Christ’s Church, we are a people that others can run to in times of need and a safe place when the storms of life are overwhelming.
The Church is a needed voice in culture, but due to our failure to remain distinct, we have lost this. To be valued again in society we will need to relearn how to think, speak, and act.
The Church must rise above the negativity of culture. We are accountable to God for our words, actions, and attitudes.
The Church is people in constant need of change and repentance of sin as we strive to look more and more like Jesus.
The Church is called to obey Jesus faithfully even when the calling is challenging or painful. Trusting Jesus this way allows Him to be glorified through you.
Because Christ purchased us with His death, we need to understand the calling of the church is greater than our personal desires.
The Church is a community of transformed people, and when transformed people engaged locally they see entire cities changed to glorify God.
The Church is Christ’s messenger to the entire world, not just those who are like us. This often takes us beyond where we are comfortable.
