Sunday's Message
September 30, 2018

LEARN WHO GOD IS

Samuel Taylor Coleridge is famous for his poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, which depicts a tragic sea voyage and has lines such as                           

Water, water everywhere and all the boards did shrink
Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink.

But he also wrote a poem called, “Self  Knowledge.”  It quotes the famous Greek oracle, “Know thyself” then asks,

Say, canst thou make thyself?  Learn first that trade
Haply thou mayst know what thyself had made;                              

                                 

Ignore thyself and come to know thy God.

This is like Jesus saying, “If anyone would come after me let him deny himself” (Matthew 16:25).  In order to know God we must turn from self and seek him with all our hearts.

Sunday I’m preaching on “Learn Who God Is” from Revelation 1:1-8.  Jesus reveals himself to John so he might write to seven persecuted churches in Asia about who God is.  This knowledge will bless them eternally in spite of a fallen world. 

Please come Sunday and learn with us.  It’s the fifth Sunday of the month, so we’re having a potluck.  But we’re also having a Ministry Faire in which booths will line the interior of the worship center featuring various ministries in our church.  Please come to Sunday School at 9:00 and worship at 10:30.  After worship you can interact with the booths, you can go to the potluck in the Fellowship Hall and you can come back and interact with the booths again!  Please bring plenty of food for your family and for you to share.  If you’re sponsoring a booth you must set it up Saturday September 29.  Invite everyone you possibly can.

Also, men, please come to the Men’s Ministry Breakfast this Saturday at 7:00 a.m. where we’ll have a special speaker.

With love in Christ,
Jim Meek

Youth Ministry Update


GOD IS A PERFECT JUDGE

Old Testament Minor Prophet #9 is up.  His story is similar to 1-8: Israel/Judah you need to repent; Assyria/Babylon is comin’ to git’cha; God will restore his people.  What’s special about the message of the prophet Zephaniah, haven’t we heard this same story about a dozen times so far?

Zephaniah was preaching during the final years of freedom for the kingdom of Judah to a nation whose king was desperately trying to redeem his people in God’s eyes.  Zephaniah’s predictions were that the king was far too late, the habitual rebellion far too entrenched, and that God would enact his justice soon.  Where Habakkuk asked how God could use evil nations to destroy evil, Zephaniah accepts this as God’s judgement of his people.  God’s wrath acts as purifying fire for his people, and eventually all people groups, to burn away the impurities and leave behind only those capable of living in the new Heaven and new Earth God has prepared.  Zephaniah specifically calls upon Jews of his day to separate themselves from the ways of their nation, so they may be spared God’s wrath.  This is Zephaniah’s challenge, warning and example for us.

How is it fair that God could sentence and destroy complete nations, what gives Him the right?  We, with our human limitations, cannot accurately judge another human in their entirety.  We can judge someone’s actions, and God calls us to do so, but we are not capable of knowing enough about even ourselves to judge our own worth.  We are left with the value God places upon us and His omniscience to provide his accurate judgement.  God commands us to love everyone and to encourage everyone into right relationship with Him, not to decide who is worthy of His or our love.  God’s knowledge and power are what give him the right to destroy (see Sodom and Gamora or the Noah era flood).  He can look upon a human soul and know how to appropriately judge that individual.  We must always guard ourselves from the sin of thinking we are God and that we have the right to determine who is or isn’t worthy.

Upcoming Lessons:

  • Sunday 9/30
    • Luke 13:6-17: Fruitfulness… what is human fruit anyway?
    • PDYM Part 1:  Define Purpose
       
  • Wednesday 10/3: The Book of Haggai: Can you do the Haggai Challenge.

Event Updates:

  • Ignition: December 26-30
    • First payment due by 9/30.
       

Prayer Requests:

  • Ignition: This is a great event for our students to attend, but this year it is in L.A. and will be very expensive to go to.  I’ve spoken with many current and previous youth leaders, and they have all expressed how valuable this event is for students.  We pray for God to provide opportunities for our students to raise money to go.
     
  • School: The students have all started school, and many of them have come to me with praise stories about how the school year is going so far.  Please pray and praise God for His provision.

Greg Horton
Youth Director

 

WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO IMPACT THE LIFE OF ONE STUDENT?

Become involved in the STUDENT WORK SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.

This program is designed to be an opportunity for our students to earn donations toward their entry to large youth events. This is an opportunity for students to learn to manage their money properly and budget towards large goals.

How this program works:

1) Fill out a Student Work Scholarship Submission Form (online form) and turn it into the church office attention, Greg Horton, either by putting it in the offering plate on Sunday or handing it to Greg in person.

2) All submissions will be reviewed by the youth leader and put on the submission board in the youth room.

3) Students will select which jobs they are willing to take on and will work with their parents to fulfill the request.

4) Once the job is done, the student or parents will collect the agreed upon amount. Please do not write a check to the church or to the youth ministry, but rather the student who did the work.

5) If the job is not taken within the period of a month, or before the due date, for any reason, the youth leader will contact the affected party.

Thank you,

Greg Horton
Youth Director
