Speaker: Justin P. Sivley It is a blessing and a privilege to be able to earn a living. Many of us take great joy in the work that we do, and want to give it the very best effort we can. However, we must be careful not to let a good thing like work become the ultimate thing in our lives, lest we make it an idol in our hearts.
Speaker: Justin P. Sivley Though Christians come from many different backgrounds, and even live different lives, there are still many things that we have in common. As we study Hebrews 3, we see some of those things that we have in common, and are reminded how important it is to be together as we encourage one another.
It is a blessing to live in the United States of America and to have the freedoms and rights of an American citizen. But when our nation and our politics become a bigger part of our identity than our God, then we have an idol problem.
On this Mother’s Day, we look at moments from the life of Mary, Jesus’ mother, to learn some lessons about faith in God’s word, about encouraging our children, and having faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior.
The lesson today provides us with a little encouragement to keep pressing on to the goal of being with Christ, no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in. Join us as we worship our God and praise our Lord in this worship service.
As we worship on this Sunday morning, we consider a Psalm that we often only think of for it’s Messianic implications. However, David speaks from intense anguish, but also shows us how we can continue to trust in God, even in dark days.
