Meat For The Week · February 7, 2018
Over the past few weeks, our Sunday messages have centered around facing the “giants” in our lives. Each of us face trials, have burdens, or get stressed out by all sorts of things. But, one of the most beautiful aspects of our relationship with Christ is finding peace and hope in His promises. Throughout scripture we find promises that are fulfilled in those who love God and follow the teachings of Jesus. When we come together each week, we have the privilege of encouraging each other with those promises. Sunday gatherings are the perfect opportunity to take steps towards the life changing promises we find in scripture. Through worship and communing with other Christ followers, we develop a greater dependence on God and learn how to truly love His people. Regardless of what life throws at you, we all have access to the exciting truths that are embodied in the gathering of His followers. Whatever chaos you are facing, bring it to Village Heights with you this Sunday and we’ll learn how to conquer it together!
MEDITATE ON THIS PASSAGE: Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.
