    Gifts that Differ

    God has given to each of us something special, a gift that can help us connect with and serve others, a gift that can help us understand our purpose in life, a gift that can help us to “discern God’s will.” Our gift can be fully realized and appreciated if we give ourselves as “living sacrifices” to God. Not using our gift for selfish gain, but for a higher purpose. As we discover and grow together in our gifts, let us appreciate our “gifts that differ.” And let us always thank God for the ultimate gift of our relationship with him.

    Prayer for All People
     God has been involved in His Creation from the beginning. Each and every moment the Holy Spirit has been moving...from “over the face of the deep” to the events of last week...in our lives and in the lives of others. Let us pray that we may grow in our understanding...like Jesus grew. So we can see God at work all around us. In our lives and in the lives of others. Let’s trust in God. And let’s rejoice that our prayers can be a part of the prayers of all people.

    Doing What Jesus Did
    As Christians we are blessed to know God as Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We can know God as creator and communicator. God in flesh. God moving in our lives. As we seek to know God more deeply...as Jesus asks us to “come” and follow him...even if it means walking to him on the water in a storm...God’s word tells us that we can make Peter’s story our own. We too can have bold faith. We too can walk with God like we never thought possible because God is inviting us to come.

    Walking with a Limp
    God wants to bless us. Not just to give us happiness, health, prosperity, and special talents. God wants to sanctify us...to set us apart from the ordinary. To give us the chance to experience the difference of living day to day in God's presence. And God wants us to share that experience with others. Through surrendering all that we are to all that God is, we can have the eternal and abundant life that we were created for in the first place.

    Two Daughters
    Can we recognize both Rachel and Leah (Love and Obligation) in our lives? Can we live our lives without focusing on one or the other. Can we shift our attention instead to the work God is doing in us and among us...taking us one step at a time deeper into the life and the land that God has prepared for and promised to us?

    The Gate of Heaven
    God wants relationship with us. A relationship built on trust. God has made so many promises to us...all of them are ultimately a guarantee of life and life more abundant. We have an opportunity to respond to God’s promises with faith. Will we be able to respond like Jacob? Will we say about our own lives…“Surely the Lord is in this place—and I did not know it!”...“How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.”

    What am I doing
    We can only see as much wholeness and peace in the world around us as we experience wholeness and peace in our own lives. We can only see as much of Christ in the world around us as we experience Christ in our own lives. We cannot see a better world, until we experience a better life for ourselves. We cannot see Christ at work in the world, until we see Christ at work in our own lives.

    Dead to Sin
      Jesus summed up the law and the prophets “Love the Lord your God” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” We are not created for rules. We are created for relationships. Let’s do our best to deepen them. And let’s be thankful for them.

    If You Forgive
    Series: Pentecost
     In a strange way, the offense and forgiveness may help us to fully enter the Kingdom...as we are forced to go deeper into our understanding of who we truly are...one with God.
