In the World – Not Knowing

By Pastor Sara, in In the World

We launched a new feature on our e-news last week.  It is a Faith5 Bible verse box.  There is a bible verse for each day to help households walk daiJRLC_InTheWorld_Logoly with Jesus.  5 simple steps each day:  share highs and lows, read the Bible, talk about the verse as it relates to those highs and lows and/or daily life, pray and bless.  5 simple yet transformational steps to help households be fully devoted followers of Jesus.  That just doesn’t happen overnight.  It takes daily practice: like soccer or football or a musical instrument.

Today’s verse made me immediately think about our Sunday School journey at Joy Reigns.  It is Hebrews 11:8:

By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to set out for a place that he was to receive as an inheritance; and set out, not knowing where he was going.  

We are a bit like Abraham.  We are faithfully leaving our home of traditional age-based sunday school to obey our call from God to be fully devoted followers of Jesus and help others do the same.  Moving into Household Huddle (Please come it’s for everyone, all ages, really!) are in a bit of the not knowing stage of how this Household Huddle thing will go, but what we do know is that God is leading us to spiritually strong on Sunday and each and every day.  I’m looking forward to this faithful bold move together.
