Randy Alcorn writes: “Nothing is more often misdiagnosed than our homesickness for Heaven. We think that what we want is sex, drugs, alcohol, a new job, a raise, a doctorate, a spouse, a large- screen television, a new car, a cabin in the woods, a condo in Hawaii. What we really want is the person we were made for, Jesus, and the place we were made for, Heaven. Nothing less can satisfy us.”
This Sunday, our sermon is called – The Good King and His Glorious Reign. King Jesus has decreed that He is making all things new. What Christ has promised is to grant to us what we have always longed for and never yet experienced in a fallen world.
Let’s come together and worship together in person and online around the glorious hope that our deepest longings that this life has developed will be fully met in Christ in His new and everlasting kingdom! What a great way to start a New Year.
For the last six Sundays in 2020 and the first Sunday of 2021, we are going to study the final seven passages of Scripture that are part of our church “Fighter Verses” memory program. We thought that in this time of chaos and uncertainty the best thing that we can do is to try to get God’s Word deep
into our hearts and lives. We are doing so that we might help each other be filled with peace and hope in these crazy CoVid times. So, would you be willing to join us in this? Would you take up the challenge to memorize some or all of these passages? Would you be willing not only to finish 2020 by kneading God’s Word into your heart and mind and life, but to get a jump on 2021 with the comfort, encouragement and hope of the Scriptures? Here is a list of the verses that you as individuals or families can learn and share together so that we as a church family might see, savor and share the all-surpassing worth of Christ!
