January 01, 2014 - You may have seen these billboards while driving around the country. The billboards are a simple black background with white text. They are supposedly messages from God…
Tell the kids I love them. - God
Let's meet at my house Sunday before the game. - God
What part of "Thou Shalt Not..." didn't you understand? - God
We need to talk. - God
Keep using my name in vain, I'll make rush hour longer. - God
Loved the wedding; invite me to the marriage. - God
That "Love Thy Neighbor" thing... I meant it. - God
(And my personal favorite...)
Don't make me come down there. - God
God has in fact given us many "messages." Messages of truth and love and hope and warning. The question is, are we listening?
Maybe you are making some New Year Resolutions –to lose weight, to join a health club, to save more money –whatever.
How about this… "I resolve to get to know God better?"
Maybe you're not sure God even exists. Maybe you're skeptical because everyone seems to have a different "version" of God. Maybe you have all kinds of questions and doubts. That's ok.
Here's the deal: Either God exists and deserves our utmost attention, or he does not exist, and we are fools for paying him any attention.
How can we get to know God better? How can we decide if he even exists?
By reading the greatest message of all, the Bible.
Our church is currently reading through the Bible together –at all levels – our children, teens, and adults. If you don't already have a home church, I encourage you to check us out.
We are a safe place for you to explore and ask questions. Isn't it time for a fresh start?
