    Matthew 22:36-40
    The greatest commandment according to Jesus is to love God and love others. We learn how to do this in the different group ministries at Advent Pres. In fact, groups teach us about loving God, others, creation, and the self.
    The greatest commandment according to Jesus is to love God and love others. We learn how to do this in the different group ministries at Advent Pres. In fact, groups teach us about loving God, others, creation, and the self. There is a movement from joining a group to full participation: adoration, acclimation, and activation.
    Joining a group teaches us to love well, the way God wants.

    Listening to God

    Conversations with the Creator – Learning to Listen
    I Samuel 3:4-14
     
    It is important for us to include children in our service with a children's message because in it our children are learning to listen to God and we learn to listen to God through our children's faith. We miss out on the truth and blessing of being God's covenant community if we do not emphasize and train up our children. Contrary to the world, we declare that our children are just as much a part of our community as an adult. In a children's message, our children learn to listen to the conversation with the Creator just like Samuel. At the same time, we, like Eli, learn to listen to God's message to us through the faith of our children.

    Conversations with the Creator – Learning the Language
    Exodus 14:26-15:2
     
    Singing as an especially corporate activity of the church teaches us the language of our faith, giving our minds and hearts freedom to express love to our Savior.
     
    On the great day of salvation for the Israelites when the LORD finally and completely delivers them from the Egyptians through a miracle in the Red Sea, the Israelites prove our Creator-given response by singing praise to God. Imagine this vast sea of people learning the lyrics that their leader Moses wrote for them and then shouting them out. This song was passed down from generation to generation as the people of God learned the language of their soul's salvation. When we sing, we are giving our minds and hearts the pathway to express our gratitude for God's saving work in us and around us. Music has a unique way of calling our whole being into action to respond to God. When we sing, we join with the angels' already ongoing song around the throne of God.

    He cleared the way for us to live for Him through faith, empowered by the Holy Spirit to live like Christ, offering His love and hospitality as we go. We call that "The aroma of Christ." We are made to be "smelly" now for all the right reasons this morning. May we continue to find avenues to promote the loving and redemptive aroma of Lord wherever we go.

    Vitals – Mind of Christ
    Series: Vitals
    We talk about the Fruit of the Spirit...about the Spirit producing fruit in our lives and I don't think its an accident. What the Holy Spirit does in us is often an unseen growth. It is slow. This is what this life by the Holy Spirit is like and my prayer for you and I is that we would see how strong it actually becomes, just like the mind of Christ.
