Where do we go from here?

Do you ever wonder, where are you headed in this world? We are often numbed by the daily grind of routine schedules, and before we realize it, we are staring at retirement. Life is more than working until you retire. Life has many challenges so go ahead and figure out how to enjoy life as you love it out.

Take time to spell the roses, take time to enjoy a sunset or sunrise, take time to enjoy a good book, take time to relax on Sunday afternoon, take time to taste new foods, and take time to find out where you are headed.

God has an amazing world for you to live in. We are suppose to enjoy it. When Jesus was on this earth, He took time to get to know people by just being with them. Yes, He spoke and taught eternal principles, but Jesus relaxed too. He was sitting at his friends house Mary and Martha. He enjoyed spending time with friends.

Jesus knew where He was going, so He was enjoying life as He went. None of us are headed to a cross to be crucified for the weighting’s of the world’s sins, so we can cross that off our bucket list. Jesus took care of all of that stuff for us so we could know where we are going.

1 John 5:13 says this: “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know you have eternal life.”

What a great verse to place assurance in our hearts about where we go from here.

Stay in the Light, 1 John 1:7,

Enter In-A Journey Through Joshua, new sermon series

0e5145219_1465185708_enter-in-logo

2018 is here, and it is time to start a new chapter. What better way then through the book of Joshua? Joshua is the successor to Moses. Big shoes to fill. Joshua led His people to the promised PromiseLand, a land described to be filled with milk and honey. Why this description? The reference to “milk” suggests that many livestock could find pasture there; the mention of “honey” suggests the vast farmland available—the bees had plenty of plants to draw nectar from. God’s description of the Promised Land as “a land flowing with milk and honey” is a beautifully graphic way of highlighting the agricultural richness of the land. God brought His people out of slavery in Egypt to a prosperous land of freedom and blessing and the knowledge of the Lord.

As we begin this new season at City Church Del Rio, we are “entering in” our promise land. We live among a people that desperately need to know that God is the One who will show them the way, the truth, and the Life.
