How to Love God in a World that Doesn’t (And an Announcement!)


July 21, 2016

Humble and Bold

The world seems more divided and unsafe than it has ever felt. But it isn’t. You read the Bible, and the division and chaos are nothing new. For all generations, people who love and follow God have faced similar challenges about how to engage and love a world that doesn’t worship and love our God. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 tells us:

“All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, correction and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

We need direction and hope for how to live in the midst of turbulent times. We need God and we need His Word. We don’t just need hope here–we need to remember we have a mission in the midst of this!

Friends, every single thing we need to obey God, love well, and to live faithfully through any and all confusion and tragedy is in God’s Word. Every single thing.

I worry we are doing this all wrong, Church. I worry we are complaining rather than loving. I worry we are living out of our fear, rather than living out of our faith. I worry we are more focused on the state of our government than the state of our own hearts. I worry our eyes are on our security more than on our giant, capable God, who is not worried or deterred.

His kingdom is on the move and His will cannot be thwarted…but do we really believe that?

I want to invite you to study God’s Word together for the month of August.
4 weeks with our Bibles–and it’s free. Let’s get a vision for our lives in the midst of this chaos.

Starting August 7th, let’s dig into the book of Daniel. Let’s study a person who lived in the midst of a culture that didn’t love and serve God. Daniel lived under a government that did not recognize God, and yet he lived in the midst of it with grace and integrity and favor. He earned the respect of the king, and by the end, the king was bowing down to the one true God.

So, how’s this going to work?

We’ll get started on August 7, 2016 at 9:00 p.m. EST through Facebook Live. AND, I’ve got a free workbook for you to use. You can download it here. This includes questions to lead you through the reading, personal application prompts, and conversation cards.

The live video teaching and discussion will reside on my Facebook page. Grab your friends and neighbors and pull together a small group, or tune in from your bed in your pj’s. We’ll come to you!

If you have a conflict with any of the dates below, don’t worry. The videos will be available on my Facebook page for later viewing. Here’s when we’ll gather:

Dates:
Sunday, August 7th at 9:00 p.m. EST
Sunday, August 14th at 9:00 p.m EST
Sunday, August 21st at 9:00 p.m. EST
Sunday, August 28th at 9:00 p.m. EST

Will you join us? Let’s live a bold and humble life rooted in Truth.

Grab your workbook here and I’ll see you on August 7th!

  1. Is Facebook the only social media for the videos? I am not on Facebook but I am on instagram and periscope. I look forward to beginning this study!

    This is so desperately needed. I have been struggling lately with how to handle the news – all the divide, hateful speech, and acts of evil – here and around the world. As a Christian, I am never certain how to act or what to say. I am really excited to use the Bible to tackle this problem.

    Thank you for making these studies relevant, understandable, and real.

    We need thus today, to come together in love not hate. We as Christians need to show the world God’s love, grace and mercy.
