Interpreting the Stories of Our Lives
#LifeStories • October 27, 2019 • Dr. Bill Shuler
God so loved the world, and he has placed you right where you are. He assigned you to a family you didn’t choose. He’s given you a place, and relationships and a realm of influence — ask God why. Mt. 4:19-20 Jn. 21:4-6 Gen. 39:19-23 Gen. 40:1-8 Gen. 41:25, 38-40 Gen. 41:15 Rom. 12:2 Gen. 42:8
The Superlative Gospel of the Glorious Cross

The Bible is filled with stories and illustrations of what it means to worship God. Look at the stories of Abel, the Alabaster Jar, the Magi, Abraham & Isaac, and others (including Jesus)… What do they have in common to teach us about biblical worship?
Devote Yourselves to Prayer
#TimeToPray • October 6, 2019 • Dr. Bill Shuler
Prayer aligns us with God’s heart and moves his Kingdom forward. Col.4:2 James 5:16(b) 71% of Americans believe God definitely answers prayer 15% believe He probably does answer prayer Jn 5:19 Martin Luther “Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance, but laying hold of his willingness.” Dwight L. Moody “Every great movement of God can be traced to a kneeling figure.” E.M. Bounds “Prayers outlive the lives of those who utter them; outlive a generation, outlive an age, outlive a world.” Andrew Murray “Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things above all we ask or think.” Mt. 6:9-13 If we would pray right, the first thing we should to is to see to it that we really get an audience with God… …believe that he is listening and he will grant the things that we ask of Him RA Torrey

Assign top priority to godly, healthy relationships. Prov. 18:1 Gen. 2:18 Acts 2:42-47 Heb. 10:24-25 Mk. 2:1-5, 11-12 Relational Dynamics: 1. We value relationships where we feel we can open up amidst others who are doing the same. 2. The more we open up, the more others like us. 3. How we respond to self-disclosure will build or destroy relationship. 4. We must be careful not to be judgmental or condemning. 5. We should seek to avoid disagreements in new relationships. 6. People come into relationships with expectations, both simple and complex. Mt. 18:19 Ecc. 4:9-12 Team Moses: 1. Mother 2. Sister 3. Egyptian Princess 4. Aaron 5. Jethro 6. Zipporah 7. Joshua 8.
