    LOVE DOES – Free to Fail
    Series: Love Does

    When you love someone, it can be difficult to watch them make foolish choices.  And yet, sometimes love lets others learn from their mistakes because love wants to encourage people to take responsibility for their own actions.  Jesus lets His disciples make mistakes not so He can condemn them, but so that He can grow them.

    Hope in The Midst of Turmoil
    Series: (All)
    The prophet Habakkuk protests God's seeming inaction in the face of injustice and violence: the wicked thrive at the expense of the righteous. Habakkuk listens and God responds: "The righteous shall live by faith."  The gift of faith by which we receive through God's Word and the Holy Spirit is to be lived one day at a time and is something to be practiced, not taken for granted. We are each a mysterious combination of our families, teachers, friends, and experiences. Paul invites us to fan into flame the gifts of God we receive through the people in our lives. Not all gifts feel like blessings. Some are the traumas and losses we inevitably undergo. Even so, we have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control. Jesus invites us to let forgiveness, faith, and service become our daily habit. By following in Jesus’ way, we are empowered to freely share that love with every person we meet.

    A big part of love is simply being present with someone.  This is why God promises His people, over and over again, “I will be with you.”  And yet, God is with us in a special and specific way – through His Son, Jesus Christ.  It is only through Jesus that we can safely encounter God.  This is what Jacob discovered as he wrestled with God one night.
