There are time when we all experience insecurity and fear. Sure some have more than others, and it may vary in intensity and importance. It may come over different things to different people. And you may even look back at previous times of fear and insecurity and laugh a little now, and shake your head over it, wondering why you were so bothered. But in the middle of it, it all made sense to be scared. What do we do in the midst of fear and insecurity? We all have ways of dealing with it. Some of those ways help, and some do not. In the middle of fear and insecurity, we want a better way, a fix, a help. Today, we look at how God speaks into the fear and insecurity of one of His people. We see how God calls him to pay attention, not to something new, but to something already in progress.
Today is the day we celebrate motherhood. Since 1914, Mother’s Day has been a recognized day for the celebration of motherhood. For many, it is a reminder of good times, the kindness and tenderness of their mother, a household filled with love and joy. For others, it is a sad time because of infertility, wayward children, or the loss of their own mother. It is truly a day of mixed emotions for many. Yet there is a new generation of mothers that are being raised up right now. They are being taught what it means to be a mother. But what are they learning? Are they be giving the tools needed to be successful in the very challenging world of motherhood? Today, we talk about how to raise a new generation of mothers in light of God’s creative design and plan for life in this world.
In our culture, one of the most common beliefs about God is that He loves everybody, except those he doesn’t. Which is a strange way to saying that while most people believe God loves people, they are not sure that He loves everyone the same. And many are not sure if they are one of the ones that God loves. Of course, this is usually measured by prosperity, health, and comfort, or by sickness, sadness, and difficulty. Are these good measuring sticks? How do we know? Today in the last talk in our series on Urban Legends, we explore the topic of God’s love. What does the Bible teach us about the love of God? Does God really love us? What difference does it make in our lives?
Virtually every culture in every place has a religion. Many places have more than one religion. Through the passing of time, these local religions have spread throughout the world, and now tastes of many religious can be found almost anywhere in the world. The similarities between religions has led many to say that they are all the same, that there is no real difference. This brings a lot of comfort to many, particularly if you are not sure yours is the right one. But is it actually true? And does it matter? Today, we examine this common religion belief that all religions are the same to see if it makes sense, and if it really answers the questions about life.
What if Christianity is really just a myth that people made up? What if there really is no God and no Jesus? If you have ever had these thoughts, you are not alone. Today, there are many people trying to convince others that religions were just made up by people who were looking for hope and couldn’t find it any other way. So they imagined a God, a set of rules, and some promises for the future, and built their lives around it. Today we look at the belief that religion is really just a crutch for weak people. Are the things that Christianity teaches just ideas to give hope in trouble? Or is there more to it? Today, we challenge our beliefs once again to see if they really hold up.
