Are we shining lights into our world or are we spreading darkness? As we continue in Philippians 2, we’re challenged to think about our role in showing God’s light in this world.
What does it mean to work out our salvation with “fear and trembling”? How does that help us to understand our calling as believers and as the church?
So Christmas is over, right? Not so fast! Traditionally the Church celebrated the joy of Jesus’s birth in the days after Christmas and after a hard couple of years, there are some very good reasons from God’s Word to pick that tradition up.
Melanie turns us to Micah this week to think about how God has a plan for our salvation throughout all time. There’s even a hint of Christmas in what she shares!

What makes us foolish vs. wise in God’s eyes? That’s the question of the night as we dig into Matthew 25:1-13 (The Wise and Foolish Virgins). Got a few minutes? Please join me.
