Grumbling in the Desert

The book of Numbers describes Israel’s journey through the desert. The Lord guided them from Mt. Sinai to the edge of the Promised Land. We might expect the sound of rejoicing would have filled the camp, but the opposite was true. Everyday the people found a new reason to complain. When our journey is filled with challenges, we can either grumble, allowing ourselves to be weighed down with despair, or we can trust the Lord to guide us through.

The Fall (Genesis 3)

Have you ever wondered why there is so much evil and heartache in this world? In our journey through the Bible, we’ve seen how God created the universe, and it was good in every possible way. He even placed the first humans in a garden paradise to share in his rule and reflect his image on the earth. So what went wrong? These verses help us understand the problem, and provide a glimpse into God’s solution.

The God of Creation (Genesis 1)

As we begin our journey through the Bible, these opening verses address the deepest questions of our soul. Who are we? Where do we come from? How did the universe come into being? Life is not the product of a random series of events, but the work of an all powerful Creator.

A New Year’s Resolution

With the start of a new year, people often make resolutions for what they would like to accomplish over the next 365 days. It might be to get in shape, or learn something new. These are worthy goals, but sometimes we struggle to follow through. In Ezra 7:10 we read one man’s resolution for how he wanted to spend his life. His example inspires us today to make our walk with the Lord a priority for each and every day.

God’s Grace Is Sufficient

We have been exploring practical ways the grace of God changes us, when we come to discover His unmerited favor in our lives. In 1 Corinthians 12, we learn that the grace of God not only saves but sustains us through the challenges and difficulties of life. When we think we can’t go on, the Lord fill us with strength, as we trust in Him.

Grace Reaches Across Racial Divides

We have been exploring practical ways the grace of God changes us, when we come to discover His unmerited favor in our lives. This week we look at how the gospel of grace draws together as one people from all racial and ethnic backgrounds. Our passage demonstrates how destructive racism can be, and why the Church must speak out, upholding the message of reconciliation.

Grace Empowers Us to Forgive

We have been exploring practical ways the grace of God changes us, when we come to discover His unmerited favor in our lives. As those who have been shown great forgiveness, Scripture shows us that we must learn to forgive others as well. This is not always easy, but the Lord will help us to let go of bitterness and resentment if we let Him.

Grace Fills Us with Gratitude

We have been exploring practical ways the grace of God changes us, when we come to discover His unmerited favor in our lives. One of the first things we should notice in a person who experiences the blessings of God is overflowing gratitude. We see both an expression of thankfulness, and a lack of thankfulness in this week’s passage.

The Prophet Who Got A Second Chance

The book of Jonah teaches us that a day of judgment is coming. Human beings are accountable to God for the way we spend our lives, on this earth. For the people of Nineveh, their day of reckoning had come. The prophet announced a message of doom, in 40 days the great city would be destroyed. But God is not only just, He is also willing to forgive. Jonah’s warning urges people in every age not to wait until it is too late to cry out to the Lord in repentance in faith.
