Do you view serving God and participating in a local church as just a bunch of rules?
Sadly many people do. Most of the Christians and Christ-followers they know act as if serving God is a duty. See Christ-followers without joy, striving, struggling to please an angry God.
In fact, I was that way too. I had the privilege of growing up in a family that served God and attended church several times a week. But somehow I began to associate my short-comings and inability to often do the right thing to God. As if He was angry and ready to play “wack-a-mole” with me if I messed up.
The problem was I didn’t really have a clear grasp of God’s nature. The Bible says “God is love”. He has a lot of traits but He is love. The truth is He loved me when I was the most unlovable. Amazing! On my worst day God had already decided He loved me so much that He sent Jesus. Truly incredible.
If you struggle with thinking that serving God is all rules and no life, you may get a lot out of our current message series, Choosing Freedom Every Day. You can listen to this series over on the Messages page but we’d love for you to come to HISplace at 9:30 or 11 AM during the end of April and all of May.
You will enjoy dynamic worship, practical Bible teaching, and the ability to stay anonymous as long as you’d like. Plus your children from 6 weeks to 5th grade will have fun in an engaging learning environment appropriate for their age.
Bring the entire family this Sunday and begin to understand the freedom you can have to serve God!
See you Sunday!
