“They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” - Isaiah 11:9
Are you living a life of adventure? Would you describe your Christian life as abundant? Jesus promises us a full life when we hand it over to Him, but that looks different for each one of us as we become missional disciples wherever God has placed us.
Church. It's whole purpose is to bring glory to the Creator, to worship Him, and proclaim His message of hope and healing in this world. It's a community of people who do life together, who take care of one another, and who are family.
Porn. It's anything but harmless. When someone is addicted to viewing explicit images, the part in the brain that triggers sexual arousal changes: rather than being attracted to their spouse, they're attracted to an image. This can cause irreparable damage to marriages and families. Not only that, the porn industry abuses thousands of women and men in the name of profit, every single day.
The book of Acts has a lot to teach us about what a life fully committed to God looks like. Are you ready to see what the abundant life is all about? In this four part series you'll work through several sections in the book of Acts and you'll have the chance to talk to a mentor as you learn.
Many of us obsess about God’s calling on our lives. We may wonder what kind of career God is leading us to; we dream about making a difference, about falling into the exact and concrete will of God. And when things don't fall into place like we think they should, we may wonder whether or not we even have a calling.
You know you should trust God. You desperately want Him to rescue you and guide you through the maze of life. Yet the phrase “trust God” can seem so trite; your mind swims with the “what if” possibilities that threaten to overtake you.
Connecting with like-minded people who genuinely care about one another is a gift we take for granted all too often. But it's not always rosy; sometimes, friendship gets messy.
