Which is harder to handle: Success or Failure? Sometimes success brings the biggest challenge of all. Call it the Test of Success. In our new Follow the Leader series we look at a leader who learned the lesson of handling success and moving things to a whole new level. And isn't that something that each of us needs to do?
This Sunday we start a new series called "Follow the Leader." And guess who the leader is meant to be: You! We begin by looking at one of God's "turnaround leaders," a king named Solomon. He helps point the way to how we can turn things around in our lives through God's mighty power.
The church functions like a body, moving and operating in unison. If one member of the body is not functioning properly, the entire body is effected. In our study in Galatians, Paul encourages us to restore and connect a person back to their proper place so that we, the church, can function at our highest capacity.
A look at what it means to be a slave to the flesh and how we can overcome through love and service.
Rev. Roland A. Ludlam
How easy it is to be enslaved to ways of thinking and acting without even knowing it. Our new identity in Jesus the Messiah sets us free from those limitations so that we can become God's Exodus people.
It's been said that freedom isn't free. Our nation's story is one of an ongoing fight for freedom. Paul's letter to the Galatians tells the same story: a fight for the freedom and new identity that we have in Jesus.
To have a story you have to live a story. And once you do, you can share it with your world. The women who came to Jesus' tomb on Easter morning did just that. And we can do the same as we experience Jesus' resurrection life.
