Sunday Preview - January 19, 2014
We sometimes hear about an athlete or actor giving an "inspired" performance. This points to a power or ability which is so amazing that it seems to have come from another source. You can see the word "spirit" at play within the word. This "spirit" provides something more than is normally expected from a human being. In scripture, the word translated as inspiration actually means "God-breathed." This isn't just a poetic metaphor, but rather a vivid description. Divine inspiration is what sets the Bible apart from EVERY other book ever written. God is the Bible's author and He produced it through the hands and pens of men. How did He ensure its accuracy while still allowing for individual writing styles and expressions? Can we trust the Bible to accurately reveal the mind of God? Come find out Sunday morning as we continue our series "Sweet Sixteens: All Scripture is Inspired (2nd Timothy 3:16)." Sunday evening we will consider the concept of family. We will hope to answer the question "Who Is My Brother? (John 1:12-13)." Are we in the family of man or the family of God? Or both? What, if any, are our responsibilities to those family members? How do we get into the family of God? Join us as we sort through these questions. Hope to see you there!
