Under the Drain Spout
In Romans 15:13 -- our signature verse for the 2013-2014 year -- we find a two dimensional calling; its simultaneously active and passive. We <em>passively</em> receive God's joy and peace as we <em>actively</em> trust in God. As a result, our lives "overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." What does it look like to actively trust in God in our everyday lives such that we are filled with the Holy Spirit? What kind of "rhythms" do we need to follow in order to prepare ourselves to receive God's joy and peace and become "overflowers" of hope? As we bring 2013 to an end and begin a new year, we'll be exploring several different "rhythms" that put us in a position to be filled with God's life. It's the difference between putting a bucket in a field and hoping it catches some rain and putting it underneath a rain spout where it's sure to be filled to overflowing.
After learning about these rhythms on Sunday mornings, we invite you to begin practicing on your own or with a friend. We'll provide the instructions for you to download each week. You can find a download link for those just underneath the sermon slides download link shown to the right.
