As we conclude our Better series, we look at one of the areas where so many of us are not even settling for good at: Patience. Even so, what we learn is that the Word of God reveals to us, Better is Patience.
In week #2 of the series, we will look at those individuals in our lives that are those who cannot remember birthdays and anniversaries, but they can remember when you said “that thing” to them, forgot their birthday or anniversary or just said something they did not agree with. Who are they? They are Those Unforgiving Ones. How do we live with them, love them, be there for them; yet, encourage and strengthen them to not be that way, but become who they can be in Christ. Equally important, how can we not become “those people” or stop being “those people” and truly become who Christ calls us to be in Him.
In week #4 of the message series, Eyes Wide Shut, we will look at a Jesus heals a man with leprosy a condition that made him an outcast, an untouchable, cut off from everyone & everything. So what does this say for us as Christians & our responsibility toward the untouchables in our society today. This week we challenge when the world says Can’t Touch This.
Jesus often kicked everything up a notch by telling us we must not only give love, honor and care to those dear to us but to all dear to us. Join us as this week we ask the question, “Who Is My Mother?”
12 Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. 13 But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, 14 and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
Scripture(s): Luke 18: 18-30
