PART 5: RUTH

What does it look like in today’s society to be faithful to God, especially if you are single? All of us long for loving relationships and companionship. As followers of Jesus, we know that God loves us and is to be our source of love and security. Yet it’s hard, especially for singles when feelings of loneliness, sexual desires and aging set in. It’s so easy and tempting to compromise values or settle for less than God’s best. Does God’s Word have any encouragement for singles who are striving to honor Christ? Yes! In this message we remind ourselves that God is sovereign, good and has the best plan for us!

PART 4: HOSEA

What’s normal is for us to love people who love us. If you show love to me, I’ll love you. If you are faithful to me, I’ll be faithful to you. What’s not normal is to unconditionally love someone who is rejecting you, hurting you, being unfaithful to you. That’s not normal! Marriages and relationships in the natural reflect a “contractual” agreement. If you live up to your end of the bargain and my expectations, then I’ll love you. Yet God calls us to supernatural love, a love that is founded in our covenantal relationship with Him. I can’t find a more “not normal” example of love than that of Hosea’s relationship with his wife, Gomer.

PART 3: 12 SPIES

Here’s something you don’t hear every day: “I love taking risks! I am secure in jeopardizing my future, and rolling the dice with unknown outcomes!” That’s not normal. Actually, that sounds a little messed up. But this is a life that followers of Jesus are regularly called to – a life of risk — a life that doesn’t allow fear or pride to result in not taking Him seriously. In this message we look at one of the most infamous stories from God’s people where fear shut down taking the risk, which resulted on missing out on God’s best.

PART 2: JOSEPH

Life comes with an unwritten guarantee that at some point you will be hurt, crossed, burned, fought or otherwise messed with. Sometimes this is of no fault of your own. When this happens personally, I feel mad and an inner desire to strike back for quick retribution, throwing a punch of justice into the face of the person who hurt me, or hurt someone I love. This is normal. Wanting to take revenge is normal. This week, we see that it doesn’t have to be. In this message, we explore the heart of Jacob’s son Joseph – a person who somehow, when he could have exacted his own justice, didn’t.

PART 1: JACOB

In the Old Testament we see a guy who looks pretty normal, going about life the way most of us do – figuring it out ourselves. He grew to have a reputation of doing whatever it took to get ahead, and was even known for burning bridges when relationships didn’t end well. His name was Jacob, and he could have written a book on self-reliance. This all changed when he found himself between a rock and a hard place – it was there he wrestled with God. If you find yourself white knuckling life, depending on yourself to survive, it might be time to stop wrestling with God and let Him fight for you.
