Pastor Tim takes us to the question “What Does God Require in the Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Commandments,” the eleventh question of the New City Catechism to help us start the consideration of the question ahead of this week’s Sunday School Express.
Keeping in mind what is coming can cause us to focus even more on worldly matters, but it shouldn’t. It should help us care more about the world knowing Jesus.
As we look toward the future, there is an urgency mission even as we find ourselves waiting for God’s fulfillment of prophecy. But it requires us to keep our focus.
God calls us to do His good work — and sometimes that means taking time for rest.
Are we willing to go into the spaces where people need the love of Jesus so that they can actually experience it?
We get so wrapped up in the things we need to do — spiritual or “earthly” — that we miss out on spending time with God.
Our Earthly obligations aren’t contrary to serving our God.
Human nature leads us to want people to think highly of us. But what does the example of Jesus show?
Being the church together is hard. How do we know what “ingredients” we need to rise to the calling God has for us?
Everyone around us faces burdens. Do we help each other bear them?
