The Ultimate Viral Infection

Pandemics . . . we hear about them and are more keenly aware of their impact since the spread of Covid-19.
Warnings of future viral attacks continue to make the news along with fear of some new disease coming down the pike that is generically labeled, Disease X.
Viruses spread quickly and are difficult to treat.
In Genesis 3, we find record of a virus that spread to all humankind. It affected the first generation of people on the earth, and it continues to affect us today.
The virus described in Genesis 3 has only one know antidote, and that antidote is available is found in faith in Jesus Christ.

The Blame Game

Game shows have been around since the dawn of time. They date all the way back to the first book in the Bible, Genesis.
The game to which I refer is not in the “big-inning” as if part of a softball game, but one later in Genesis 3.
The game in Genesis is so easy to play and so easily understood that a child can learn the rules of the game without ever being taught.
Adam and Eve introduced the game that is simply titled, “The Blame Game.”
In the game, you never accept any blame for any of your actions. Instead, you blame someone or something else, refusing to take any responsibility.
It’s quite literally a game that everyone plays at some point in their lives. Join us as we look at that game as we study Genesis 3:8-13.

If Jesus Had Not Risen

The resurrection of Jesus from the dead stands at the center of the Christian faith. It is the hinge pin that holds the faith together.
In 1 Corinthians 15, the Apostle Paul enumerates four direct results that exist if Jesus had not risen from the dead.
It is not that Paul does not believe in the resurrection, rather he is addressing the concerns of those who do not believe. In verse 20, Paul states, “But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead.” The certainty of that truth changed Paul’s life and it can change our lives.
Join us this coming Sunday as we discover why we believe the resurrection is true. Hope you can join us for worship.

A Way is Prepared

When Jesus entered into Jerusalem on that first Palm Sunday, His way was prepared for Him. It was prepared by His disciples, by Old Testament prophets, by the people in Jerusalem, and even by Jesus Himself.
Prophesies of the day harken back to the time of Moses around 1,500 B.C., the time of David, around 1,000 B.C., and the time of Zechariah, around 400 B.C.
While all the players prepared the way for Jesus, the actions of that day and the following week enabled Jesus to prepare the way for all humankind to find hope, forgiveness, and an eternity with Jesus.
Join us this coming Sunday as we look at Matthew 21 verses 1-11 along with other Scriptures, as we discover how significant were the events of that day both for the past but also for the future.

Humbly Serve

Jesus challenged His followers to serve others not from a position of pride or even personal power, but from a position of humility.
Jesus set the example when He came as the God-man, choosing to take on the form of man, humbling Himself even to the point of death of His life so that He could provide for others.
Join us this coming Sunday as we center our focus upon serving others. For onsite service, we will hear from a ministry we support, named Omaha Street School where they seek to minister to students in need of an education in a safe and supportive environment. Online, we will direct our attention to the teaching of Jesus as He challenges His followers to humbly serve others.

Know the Enemy

A key to success in the sports world is to know your opponent. If you have no idea of what offensive plays they use and defenses they present, you enter the fray at a tremendous disadvantage.
The same is true for those seeking to follow Jesus. When Eve and Adam encountered the serpent in Genesis 3, they were naïve to his plan and quickly fell prey to his seductive words. It is wise to know now the enemy of our faith functions.
Join us this coming Sunday as we delve into Genesis 3 vv1-7, as we discover that the approach leveled at Eve and Adam is repeated throughout the biblical text. Gain insights into how the adversary operates.

The Nature & Necessity of Marriage

Successful marriages follow three basic steps. Those steps are found in Genesis 2: leave, cleave, and become one.
You leave your life of singleness behind, directing your attention away from yourself to your mate. You cleave to one another as you make the relationship central. Finally, you enter the life-long process of becoming one. The process will require mutual commitment and a willingness to sacrifice for the other.
The process of becoming one continues as long as you are together.
We want to invite you to join us this Sunday, as we look at Genesis 2:24-25, discovering both the nature and necessity of marriage.

Finding a Completer

God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18 – ESV).
A mate was needed. Someone to be a companion and completer. Solomon wisely stated that “two are better than one” (Ecclesiastes 4:9).
Where one is weak, another is strong. When you find a completer, you find someone with differing strengths and weaknesses than you, so when combined together you have a become a more complete whole.
We want to invite you to join us this Sunday, as we look at Genesis 2:18-23, discovering the importance of finding a completer.

God’s Provision – Our Preoccupation

Wet paint! Don’t Touch!
We see the sign and one of our tendencies is to touch the paint and make sure. Is it wet?
In Genesis, we find how God provided everything humankind needed. Good food, nice climate, safety, security, etc. There was only one prohibition. They could eat of any tree from the garden, except one. So where did they focus their attention? Just like most of us, they were drawn by the one prohibition.
We want to invite you to join us this Sunday, as we dive into the biblical text in Genesis 2:4-17 as we discuss what God’s Provision and Our Preoccupation.

Entering Into God’s Rest

Rest: we know we need it but rarely get it. We long for a good night’s rest, but the demands of life rob us of the ability to get the rest we so desperately need.
God knows we need rest. He offers His rest to those who seek it. As we trust in Him and in His Son, Jesus, we find rest for our souls. Worry is chased away as we rest in God’s promises and provision.
We want to invite you to join us this Sunday, as we dive into the biblical text in Genesis 2:1-3 as we discuss what God’s Word says about rest and how we can find it.
