The More Things Change...

Introduction

The world seems to be moving very fast – sometimes it feels like it’s spinning out of control and we’re not able to slow down and focus on what’s really important. We’re heading into a year with so many unknowns and it’s safe to say some things will never look the way they used to. That can be both good and scary. It’s important for us to remember there are some mission-critical things that will never change. They are the core attributes that we, as both followers of Jesus and partners of New Hope, can stand on to define who we are regardless of our circumstances. Because the more things change, the more some things should stay the same.

The More We Need Each Other

Most of us can be described as either independent of others or dependent on them. The truth is, God designed us to thrive when we are interdependent. When we get this right, we, and everyone around us, benefit.

If you want to know what is most important to someone, just look at their bank statement. Generosity is a characteristic of those who genuinely follow Jesus.

The More We Need Jesus

When you discover something that changes your life, it’s natural to want to share the good news with others. At a time when hope is low and frustration is high, Jesus is the answer.

The More We Need to Serve Others

The Bible tells us Jesus didn’t come to be served, but to serve. If our purpose is to follow His lead, then serving others is a top priority.

The More We Need to Keep Growing

February 6/7, 2021 • February 7, 2021 • Rusty Coram

od accepts us as we are, and then begins a process of developing and growing us into the people we can be. Followers have God’s Holy Spirit living within us, so we can become people that reflect Jesus’ character, values and attitude.

The More We Need a Strong Foundation: Part 1

February 13/14, 2021 • February 14, 2021 • Rusty Coram

We’re all aware of the critical need for people to live together in peace, harmony, and respect. Jesus not only taught us how to live together, but also offers the ability to do it.

The More We Need a Strong Foundation: Part 2

February 20/21, 2021 • February 21, 2021 • Rusty Coram

God’s church is called to be an example of what genuine community can be. In addition to the character traits we looked at last week, there are specific actions we believe are mission-critical.
