This morning we begin with the familiar story from Luke of the ten lepers. Pastor Casey points out that this healing took place in the midst of obedience to Jesus’s command. Luke 17:14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. Pastor Casey goes on to point out that one of the ten, felt a responsibility to live in response to what Christ had done for him. It seems a reasonable service, to return with thankfulness and praise. This former leper did not hurry off to carry on his own life. Pastor Casey urges us to be the one that lives a life of response to Christ.
Scripture reference: Luke 17:11-19
Sherry Benner shares a word with us from Hebrews 6:19, The Passion Translation
The New Year brings a new focus on life. Be encouraged as Sherry encourages us to have a renewed desire of God’s goodness and in turn receive the desires of our heart. As we desire God more and more, our desires begin to align with his.
The Life’s Journey Children’s Pastor, Sherry Benner shared an important reminder that building our life on the Rock-the Word of God- is more than a children’s song. This principle in firmly rooted in Scripture in Matthew 7. She continues encouraging and exhorting us to remember and declare who God says we are.
