There Is A Plan

Our lives are crazy! We live every day with unpredictable and surprising events. Then, when we add our family to the picture, we are really in for some unexpected turns. But, there is a plan. If we learn anything from the great shepherd turned king, it is that God has a plan, and his planned…

Distortions Abound

As we wrap up part one of The Story (God Forms a People), we come up against a vivid example of distorting God’s Word. We have seen the simple disobedience of God over and over, but today is a bit more advanced. A bit more like us possibly, as well. After a big picture look…

A Foreigner’s Faith

If you have ever felt like an outcast, or somewhat unacceptable, the story of Ruth is for your encouragement. Ruth is as non-Jewish as I am, yet is actually in the lineage of Jesus. She is pretty special, and so are you! No matter your family background, or your own, wild, life choices, you have…

Hindsight Should Be 20/20

Now that the Israelites have made their way into occupying their land, everything moves along without any troubles (not). This morning we will summarize the status of Israel as we find them in The Story (chapter 8), and we will learn from their lives. No, really. We really do need to learn from their lives!…

The Battle for Success

Guaranteed success! If I could absolutely guarantee the success of your life, would you be interested? From right now (as the beginning of the rest of your life), on forward…guaranteed success. Whether you have wandered for 40 years, or only a short time, or you are settled for a mediocre Christian existence, the application of…

The Wandering Journey

Our Christian life can be easily compared to the wandering journey of the Israelites. Today we will look closely at two typical aspects of a long, laborious, life journey, and we will end with an inspiring speech by Moses. If you are tired today, a bit worn out and see a long journey ahead of…

The New Deal

As the Israelites approached their third month of freedom, they came near Mount Sinai. They had already expressed plenty of grumbling and disobedience. So now, God created a brand new contract, a new covenant. Within the following components of the covenant, we see God’s value on relationships, and we see his great love for us.…

God: The Ultimate Deliverer

Without a doubt, Moses is one of the most fascinating characters in history – and certainly one of the most important. His life is an interesting story, but it is much more than that. As we take a closer look at events in his life, there are many lessons to be learned that still have…

Slave to Rescuer

Today’s character, Joseph, is in some ways a typical representative of all our lives. Joseph goes from the top of life, to the bottom, and most places in between, in principle, just like us. While reviewing Joseph’s life of turmoil, we will learn the value of forgiveness and of trusting God.

Another Re-Start

After the excitement of creation, sin and sin’s damage, we now see God’s persistence in showing his love for us. God made a fresh new plan, and the key characters of his plan were somewhat surprising. If you have ever felt unqualified or unskilled to be used of God, please know that you are just…
