Read Luke 10:25-37
No one likes interruptions, but the Christian life is full of them. And for good reason. Whether they come in the form of a man beaten bloody on the side of the road or a child begging for our attention, we often fail to see interruptions for what they are–divine opportunities. God allows them to derail our plans for the sake of deepening our relationship with him and opening our eyes to our blind spots.
Read Genesis 27 & 33
Every one of us will have to face eternity. For those of us who have chosen to follow Jesus, we look forward to an eternity filled with joy and free from sorrow. The guarantee of eternity means we can live every day on this earth not for our own gain, but for the benefit of God’s kingdom. Let’s use what we’ve been given in the time we have to break free of the yoke of comparison and pride and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus.
Read Judges 6
The book of Judges cracks a window into depths of the human soul. Watch a nation struggle with its identity and relationship to its God. Heroes and heroines arise, who seem to have the potential to save Israel. But in the end, each proves to be a broken savior that cannot deliver.
Read Galatians 1
What does it look like to follow God and live out this faith in our relationships, at our jobs, in conflict, in suffering, and with money? This is a generation that is not just hungry for big faith, but for a big faith that is lived out in the practical, mundane things we do and the decisions that we make everyday. A faith that is marked by wisdom.
