February 17, 2019: ” Do Justice and Mercy”

Summary: How does God want us to live? He tells us in the Bible, but sometimes it takes discernment to know if or how something applies to our life today. Some Old Testament laws and teachings do not apply because Christ has fulfilled them (Matthew 5:17), some laws do apply and are binding on us (Ephesians 6:1-2), and sometimes there is an underlying principle to follow (1 Corinthians 9:9-10). Let the Bible guide and direct the way you live.

February 10, 2019: “Grumbling is Not a Small Thing”

Summary: How confident are you that God’s got your back, that He’s watching out for you? When everything is going well it’s easy to trust God, but when life gets difficult it’s easier to complain. The Israelite people had a pattern of grumbling when life got hard. What we may not realize is that grumbling is actually addressed to God (Exodus 16;7). You’re complaining that God doesn’t care and provide well enough. Try going 24 hours without complaining. Ask God to transform your personality into a more grateful, God-confident person.

February 3, 2019: “The Results of a Hard Heart”

Summary: Physically, the most important muscle in our body is our heart.  That’s true spiritually as well.  Proverbs 4:23 tells us above all else to guard, protect and defend your heart.  Be vigilant not to stray away from God.  The pharaoh of Egypt hardened his heart repeatedly.  God eventually gave him over to his own choices, (Romans 1) and God also hardened his heart.  No one can run from God, and harden their heart without consequences.  That’s why the Bible urges us to guard our heart!
