Living Well Part 1

Living Well Part 1

Pastor Ted said a couple of weeks ago that Conversations are construction sites and our words are the building materials. This is true for any human that has ever lived but it is especially important as followers of Christ.

If we claim to have faith in Christ, what should that mean for the way that we live our lives. To have “Faith” is to live as God intends us to live. This morning we unpacked what this word “Faith” means and implies and allowed the story of Philip and the Ethiopian to shed some light on it.

Uncomfortable

Uncomfortable

Nobody likes to be uncomfortable. We avoid discomfort at all costs if we can. We are creatures of habbit. Whether we are in church, a class or our favorite Starbucks we will go to the same seat if it is open every time. Why? Because that is familiar, it is comfortable. We have been told by every commercial we have ever seen that their product or service will bring us more comfort in our lives.

ROOTED: Grow Deep, Live Tall

ROOTED: Grow Deep, Live Tall

Like trees we have to make sure that our root system is strong and deep so that we can grow and live tall in the purpose and plan that God has for us and our lives. If we fail to nourish ourselves on the things that will last we will be like a withering tree that is pushed over at the slightest of storms. But even still we have hope! Even if we are a dried up stump there is still opportunity for us to flourish.
