Return – Hear Me and Live
The New Year is a time when many of us take stock of our lives and resolve to make some changes for the better. Maybe this is the year we’ll get more physically fit, or go back to school, or eat a more healthy diet. Self-improvement is a huge industry in our culture and people spend a lot of money on gym memberships, personal trainers, diet-approved foods, books and course – all in the hope that there will be a pay-off in the end. As we begin the new year of 2018 we want to draw everyone’s attention to what God says is the real source of the help we need for whatever ails us. It is Him. And He is often not the first place we turn when we need help. In this 3-part series we will look at what God says in Isaiah 55, where He tells us that listening to Him is the source of real life for our souls. If it is our hearts desire to be a Spirit-led church, then listening to God is the place to begin! That is what our 90 days of listening were all about last spring – learning to listen to God. Listening leads to hearing, and hearing – when obeyed, leads to life. We want to be a listening church – as individuals and as a community.
