Dear Church Family,
How do we come to know God? Only by God’s revelation of himself. The fact is that we would know nothing about God if he did not reveal himself to us—and it is God’s call on how he reveals. Last week we saw from 1 Samuel 3:21 that God “revealed himself to Samuel…by the word of the Lord,” which was then passed on from Samuel to all of Israel. However, “in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things…” (Heb. 1:2). Jesus is the ultimate revelation of God, and we most clearly see Jesus through the revelation of God’s words contained in the Bible. This is how God has primarily chosen to reveal himself: God’s words about God’s Son who came to show us God. Are you hungry to know God? Do not neglect the scriptures! Eat them up like bread each day. God is not silent, but we will not hear what he speaks if we do not open up his word.
Disciple Makers Intensive
If God has revealed himself in the Bible, we might wonder where exactly the Bible came from, and why we should trust it. Our upcoming Disciple Makers Intensive will seek to answer those questions. Join us on April 6 from 8:30 – 12:00 in the church auditorium to hear Dr. John Meade and Dr. Peter Gurry of Phoenix Seminary address foundational questions about the history and integrity of the Bible.
Join us this Sunday evening (3/24) from 6 – 8 pm in the church auditorium for our bi-monthly members meeting. This is a family meeting to encourage one another with testimonies, make decisions concerning the life of the body, and pray for one another. Don’t miss out!
Your brother in Christ,
