Our Forgetfulness In Suffering
by Daniel Neighbors on March 6th, 2022
Are you a forgetful person? I’m not talking about losing your keys, the garage code, or needing to use “Find My Phone” regularly. I’m talking about forgetting about what is most important — things like time in the word, time in prayer, pursuing your relationship with God, and sharing it with your friends and family. Do you ever forget those things? I would venture a guess that we all forget those ...
Provision: Our Need In God's Time
by Daniel Neighbors on November 8th, 2021
Provision. So often, in my life I’ve thought of the idea of provision as being God giving me all the things to make me comfortable. Food to eat (not just any food but what sounded good in that moment), clothes to wear (not just any clothes but what I felt I looked good in), a home to live in (not just the building but all of the things inside of it to aid me in my comfort)… I could list many more ...
Unknowns: We Want Answers, God Gives Himself
by Daniel Neighbors on November 1st, 2021
Unknowns. They’re awful. I don’t know about you, but I like to know things. I like when things go according to the plan or, at least, by my expectation. I like people to react to what I say, do, think, and post on social media in the way I find pleasing. I like when life goes in the direction I imagined it would. I like when nothing throws a wrench in my day and I’m able to accomplish my goals. Bu...
The Point Of God's Providence
by Daniel Neighbors on October 25th, 2021
What is God’s providence? In our 9am Bible hour this last week, we learned that God’s providence is God’s personal and direct intervention, as opposed to a hands off approach, that affects not only the natural order of things but also the individuals and events within human history. As we studied Genesis 11, we saw that the people had come to a conclusion: they wanted to settle together, make a na...
Your Sin Breaks God's Heart
by Daniel Neighbors on October 18th, 2021
We are now 4 weeks into the Gospel Project. We have seen the power, creativity, and majesty of God in creation (Genesis 1). Only God, the Creator and King, could create the vast universe as we see it today. Then we took a glimpse at God’s creation of human beings. We were formed by hand from the dust of the ground (Genesis 2:5-9), and we were made in the image of God Himself (Genesis 1:26-28), uni...
Restoration Of God's Perfect Purpose
by Daniel Neighbors on October 10th, 2021
Did you know that you were created for worship? Worship is the reason that we are here. It is the foundation with which we are able to build our relationship with God. I love Genesis 1:27-28 because within them we can see God's desire for a relationship with us! You see, proper representation and imitation of the Creator of the universe demands an intimate relationship. Without a deep and developi...
