This Sunday, we wrap up our series called The Art of Racing in the Rain. It’s been a great series to help us look at God’s plan for us to live life well even in the midst of the craziness in our world over which we have no power. This week, I want us to talk about an attitude of the heart that is so essential to living life this way that it has been adopted all over our world. Who knew it came from God? That shouldn’t be surprising at all!
Sunday, we continue our series, The Art of Racing in the Rain, where we are trying to learn the skills necessary to win the race of life even when life is not a bed of roses. This week, we will find the answer to this great and important question, “How do you know what you don’t know?” This is so key because, more than likely, it’s the stuff you don’t know that is going to keep you from the life God dreamed up for you!
This Sunday, we continue the series we started last week called “The Art Of Racing In The Rain.” We learned that we need a God-strategy for how to win the race of life and how that strategy is even more important when life is raining down on you. This week, we take it a step further and start talking about some of the specific components of how to win. We will talk about what it means to use your brakes!
Something lives inside of each of us that drives us to excel, to succeed, to win. This drive can determine how we live and, many times, drive us into the ground. In Hebrews 4, Jesus offers a different path. A path that not only leads to true success but is designed to give you joy in the process. You’ll never truly win by going pedal to the metal all the time; you also need to learn the Art of Racing in the Rain.
We’re wrapping up our Armor of God series with the most important piece of the armor. I also want to talk about how we move into the next stage of response to the Coronavirus. This is a very important message.
We continue hearing from God on how to overcome the evil that is in our world and inside us. Specifically this week, I want to address the mind games into which the evil in this world can send us spiraling. We need help! God’s help is the Armor of God.
It has been so great to discover God’s design for how we take on this world that is obviously so poised to inflict pain and suffering on us. God has given us this armor of God, and each piece helps us stand a little stronger and with less fear of what this world can do to us. This week, we add to our armor, the Shield of Faith. To put it simply, faith is the just the Bible’s way of saying “trust”.
Sunday is Mother’s day, and we will be celebrating our moms and the great ladies God has put in our lives. We’ll also continue our series on the Armor of God as we learn and follow Jesus’ instructions on how to fight off the evil that is obviously so real and present in our worlds.
We continue on Sunday with learning how God says we can fight off the evil that exists in our world. We know we need help because it’s just too big for us to handle. We are vulnerable. So we need protection, and that’s where the armor of God comes in. This week, we’re talking about the BreastPlate of Righteousness and what it means to put that on. That leads me to the thought I’d like you to ponder for Sunday. “What does it mean to live righteously?”
