Here are questions for us to prayerfully consider:
1 Samuel 3:1-10(11-20) Hearing from God like Samuel did probably seems strange to many of us, especially the audible voice and the detailed message. How have you heard from God? How do you confirm that a divine message is really from God and not just your own opinion and emotions?
Psalm 139:1-5, 12-17 Read this psalm every night before you go to bed. It can transform you and your view of life.
2 Corinthians 4:5-12 These few verses give us an insight into Paul. We will explore him and his theology and ministry in more detail starting June 10 as we read through I Corinthians on Sundays. If you have time, read I Corinthians in one sitting this week or anytime before we start our new adventure on June 10.
Mark 2:23-3:6 Jesus said, "The sabbath was made for humankind, and not humankind for the Sabbath." In our busy world today, many of us could use a deeper sense of Sabbath. In Jesus' day, this law from God was misused as a way to exercise control over others. Religious leaders were missing the point-- the Sabbath was designed to help people rest, renew, and appreciate and enjoy their life. Can you think of any religious rules that are misused today?
Mother Bonnie will be our preacher this Sunday. Please pray for her as she prepares to speak and for all of us as we prepare to hear and respond to God's Word.
