As we continue with our series in Hebrews, it’s important that we keep in mind its central point. This will allow us to understand and apply each sermon in this series, in a better and more productive way.
The name of the curriculum we are using with our little ones is A Sure Foundation, and its main goal is to present basic truths about God’s character. At home, we must continue reinforcing those truths, providing our children with as many opportunities as possible to See The Beauty of our Lord.
Here you have some more resources to continue with such a work, at home.
To respond correctly to God’s generosity, to be able to give thanks to our Lord we need to understand three things: our real condition, His character, and the gift He has given us.
Psalm 124 adds a new dimension to our call to enjoy His generosity : we are called to give thanks… together.
Yep, His children are called to live life together, in communion with Him and with one another.
A problem, right?
The wealth of Solomon, described in 1 Kings 10, as glorious as it was, it’s not really difficult to imagine. Here in the US, we have access to a similar amount of wealth. We have things, we do things that people on other countries can only dream about.
If the wealth and glory of Solomon is but a shadow of what King Jesus’ kingdom will look like, then it makes sense to desire the establishment of such a Kingdom.
Why, then, we don’t desire it? Why don’t we pursue its establishment? Why do we feast on ashes and hold to lies with our right hand?
You are in a room. Then the atmosphere changes… it gets a little quieter… someone has come in to the room that has a powerful presence. They are not flaunting it… in fact, they don’t have to say anything.
Have you ever had that experience? Have you ever been with someone that made you feel small… not because they said something mean, but because they were so amazing?
