We have spent the last couple of weeks discussing what scripture is and how we use it. We want to be very intentional not just on whether or not we are reading the Bible but HOW we are reading the Bible. How are we letting the word of God affect us? Is it simply a giant rule of life manual or is it something more?

Churches are messy. All churches. Always. People want different things. We have different ideas, experiences, and perspectives. We all have a pretty good sense that we are right, and others are wrong. But messy churches are not new. Most of the churches in the New Testament were pretty messed up. But there is a way forward, a healthier way to do church. Seeking it will be painful but finding it could open up for us a new and surprising future.

It's the day after Christmas and sometimes there's a temptation to be sorrowful, we celebrated the arrival of the Savior yesterday and today we notice his absence. The Savior himself had a much different perspective and pointed us to focus on the gift that keeps on giving.

After God's victrory for Israel at Jericho the Israelites prepared to continue thier conquest of the Promised Land. However, they were not prepared for what happened next: Disobeidience (sin) was preventing them from moving forward! The Nation was now stuck! They could not move forward with the Conquest until the sin was confessed and addressed.

Anger is something we all deal with. Some deal with it more than others, but how do we deal with our anger? While we know and understand that holding on to anger is not healthy, it's something that we still struggle to overcome. This anger can oftentimes evolve into hatred and hatred can evolve into suffering.

At one point or another, pretty much all of us have experienced despair over the last 18 months. Whether it be loneliness, loss, frustration, or that one virus that everyone keeps talking about, we have had times when we wondered where God's movement was taking place...or if there was movement at all.

Sometimes it's hard to receive and give forgiveness. We study and reflect on the Lord's Prayer to change our prayer lives to make them more consistent with the character of God. It can be hard to forgive people who don't deserve it. Yet, Jesus teaches that our own forgiveness from God depends on our forgiving others.

"Give us this day our daily bread." A line that simply asks for God to provide for us, or is there a deeper meaning? What does He mean by daily bread? As we take a deeper look into the Lord's Prayer we will attempt to find the answers to these very impactful questions.

God had a secret plan for the world (he still has this plan today, but it is not a secret any more). What is that secret plan? What does he want YOU (and all the rest of us) to do about it? Join us today as we explore how it is so important that there is "one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all."

This week in our "One" series is the topic of "one lord." Other translations from various languages around the world and even in history also translate this as "master." Even dating back to Mount Sinai, God has always desired to be more than just a checklist and more than our first of many. God wants to be our one and only.
