Portrayed in God’s Tabernacle
Today we are confronted with what it means to come face to face with God.
In Exodus, God sent a seismic sound and light show that shocked and awed the people of Israel.
Sabbath Purposes: Reflecting God’s Ownership of My Time & Enjoying the Simplicity of God’s Rest
This morning we are turning to Isaiah 58, where we see two ancient and powerful truths applied by God Himself. This passage is God applying Biblical fasting and a personal Sabbath rest.
How’s Your Hunger For God Today?
Today we begin a study of the Sabbath Day that can impact the way we live for the rest of our lives.
Living The Way God Wants Us to Live: Embracing A Biblical Worldview in a Fallen World Isaiah 58:6-12 Each of us today has an operating system we use to go through life. This operating system is called our worldview. Our worldview is how we determine reality and make decisions like: What is good and what is evil. What is real and what is false. What is worthwhile and what is worthless.
Hungering for God Series, Part-5: Reflecting The Purpose that God Chose for Fasting By Cultivating Christ’s Compassion For Our Neighbors Isaiah 58:1-14 Our Almighty God is not prejudiced, He is not unjust, nor is He oppressive. Our Great God has immense compassion for the poor, the orphans, the widows, the oppressed, the afflicted, and the outcasts. GOD UNCHANGING SOCIAL COMPASSION God’s unchanging concern for His people to reflect, support, and seek a just social treatment of fellow humans is a constant theme in the Scriptures. From the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible) to the Prophets (the last 17 books of the Bible), and everywhere in between: God speaks with a consistent voice about the desire He has for justice, mercy, and compassion.
How Does God Want Biblical Fasting to Impact Our Lives? Isaiah 58:1-14 How do you reach a godless culture, moving away from God? With Christlike Compassion. Our study from God’s Word today may be one of the most relevant to the culture we currently live in, than any other topic we could study. As we open our Bibles to Isaiah 1, let me ask each of you a series of five questions, that explains how God describes the moral and spiritual collapse that precedes: THE DEATH OF A NATION 1. What happens when a nation with a long and deep Biblical Heritage turns its back on God? How about a group of formerly devout followers of the Lord who mostly have abandoned genuine worship, and godly behavior?
Today, sitting here: we are gathered as the Body of Christ. So the first truth for us to consider today is this:
We are the Body of Christ
The Body of Christ: that is what we are called, and that is what we are by God’s grace to be.
We are to represent Christ alive in us, as we are living, and going through life in the world. That is what it means that our body is the temple of God. He lives is us; and He wants to radiate out of us in our words, attitudes, and actions.
At salvation each of us were designed by God to impact the world around us.
The way God describes our choices to fulfill our duty was simply stated in Acts about how David lived. David accomplished God’s will by doing what God desired for him to do.
Acts 13:36 (ESV) For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep and was laid with his fathers and saw corruption,
Acts 13:36 (NKJV) “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption;
God wants us to serve those people He puts around us during our lifetime.
