Intersecting Life and Faith
Through November 15/16
In 1 Peter, Jesus is declared the cornerstone in the lives of those who have accepted the invitation to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. It is this cornerstone, anchoring the intersecting walls of our life and our faith, that empowers us to live boldly and generously as Passionate Servants of Christ.
1 Peter proclaims that when we anchor our life and our faith in Jesus Christ – when he becomes the cornerstone of our living – our values and our valuations are changed. When we become beneficiaries of the new inheritance that 1 Peter chapter 1 describes, we begin to understand that this inheritance accomplishes two things in our lives: 1) we see life differently – through the lens of our eternal life in Jesus Christ; because our future inheritance is secure, we are free to live generously, not fearfully; 2) we begin to understand and then celebrate that we are partners with God in loving others. As Christians, we are called to make an impact with our time, our talents, our energies, and yes, our finances. And when we do we are richer, others are blessed, and God is honored.
“Abide in Christ”
Rev. Sara Hardaway
Our faith in what God did in Jesus Christ builds the kingdom on earth. Jesus Christ becomes the cornerstone holding our earthly kingdom in tandem with our heavenly kingdom.

“An Everlasting Hope”
Rev. Robert Hasley
So many people in our world embrace what is temporary, even disposable, and ignore what lasts, what endures. There are many events in life that threaten to take away our hope. Yet, hope in Christ is an eternal hope that can never be diminished, lost or defeated. The inheritance God has given us is “imperishable, undefiled, and unfading.”

“An Inheritance from God”
Rev. Arthur Jones
God is constantly trying to get us to care more about what really matters in this world. We often care about an earthly inheritance, but God has something better in mind – an eternal inheritance, the salvation of our souls.

“An Enduring Inheritance”
Dr. Scott Engle
As the children of God we have an inheritance that can never diminish nor be taken away. God protects our inheritance, our salvation, for us, locking it away in the vaults of heaven. A question for us to consider is what sort of inheritance we will leave those who come after us. We are called by Christ to do all we can to foster faithful discipleship in all those we can possibly reach. It is this fellowship that is the most important inheritance any of us can leave for those who come after us.
9:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary
This is a Christ-centered worship experience built on a foundation of engaging biblical teaching. The Chancel Choir and other ensembles lead the powerful worship music.
