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.
The Christmas Story is full of a special kind of gift giving. But have those gifts been misplaced?
God has guided His People over history. As we look at that history, does it tell us anything about how He views us today?
What is the true Spirit of Christmas? This year, we’re going to be thinking about how the Holy Spirit works throughout the story of Jesus’s coming and what His continued work means for us today.
God calls us to unity, but the Church struggles to follow that calling. What does being one who seeks to live according to the “bond of peace” really look like for us?
What are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper meant to do? How do we make sense of them? Are they mere empty rituals? Things we can do to save ourselves? Something else?
What should we believe about God’s Word? What does God’s Word tell us about itself? How should we approach it if people have used God’s Word to hurt us? Those are questions we turn to as we dig into the next subject of “Pieces of Faith:” God’s Word.
Do I see myself as I am? Do I see how God sees me? Tonight on Steadfast, we look at those important questions and how God turns the “Fall from Grace” on its head.
Why did God create me? How does understanding who God is help us to better understand His love for us? As we begin a new series looking at core beliefs the Bible teaches, we start at the one who starts everything: God. (If you’re interested, we’re working our way through the Little Hills/FaithTree statement of faith — you can check that out and then we’ll cover a portion of it each week by looking at what the Bible teaches on that subject.)
