The book of Genesis means the book of beginnings. And in chapters one and two of Genesis we see seven beginnings each one outdoing the previous in glory. The rhythms of the creation story provide us with a pattern for all of life.
Liturgies are like anchors. I say this not to evoke nautical allusions in your mind, but instead, I want you to think of these anchors as those things that keep you grounded and tethered to the path you walk. Hebrews says that Christ is the anchor of our souls, our lives are to be lived fastened to Christ. And to be anchored to Christ is to walk along the path of righteousness, to be anchored to something else is to walk along the way of destruction. And the liturgies in our lives determine which path we will walk.
It is important to notice that there is not a single verse anywhere in the Bible that tells us to exclude children from the covenant. What we see through the biblical writings is that Children are always included with the parents in the covenant. And this inclusion is important to God.
We are blessed to live in a time and place where the Bible is made available to us through so many different mediums. Bibles are available on our phones, tablets, computers, watches and, my personal favorite, bound in highland goatskin leather.
One day, the disciples asked Jesus, “Lord, teach us to pray,” and among other things, Jesus taught them to pray to their heavenly Father, “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Some may find it shocking that Jesus did not teach them how to pray to get into heaven. He instead taught them how to pray to get heaven into them
Wow. That was incredible! Thank you to all who came out for our launch service on the 22nd. We were blown away by what God did.
His presence alone was so evident it was difficult to hold back tears of joy on multiple occasions. Thanks to all our ministry team members for everything you did to make Sunday not only possible, but a joy
I would like to start off by stating that the subject of the ministry at Exodus Church, as long as this Church stands, and as long as this Church is frequented by worshipers, will be the person of Jesus Christ. I am never ashamed to identify myself with a specific theology, I have no concerns about partnership with our denomination, or church planting networks.
