We are going to begin talking about a desert, a people, their God, and their journey.
The word that we've come to use to describe their story is Exodus. But what does that even mean? Well, go back far enough, and the word was used in Greek cultures to describe several things. It comes from two words: "ex" which means "out", and "hodos" which means "way". I don't often get into word studies like that. But I want you to catch this one. At it's core, Exodus is:
The Way Out.
Is there something for us in this Exodus? Might there be a way out? It won't come quickly, they seldom do. But yes, there is a way out in the Exodus.
We’ve all heard the stories. You may have even personally observed the wreckage. Someone does something stupid, or, worse yet, immoral or wicked and then claims that God told them to do it.
Impressions come from one of three sources. They come from our own impulses or desires, from God, or from a Satanic source. So how to you tell the difference?
Join us this weekend as we unpack how to test an impression to see whether its from God. This is a vital teaching that you and one of your friends may need to hear.
There is nothing more important to the quality of your life than learning to hear God’s voice. Dallas Willard says it this way, “I suppose someone can get by in life without hearing from God, but it is not much of a life, and certainly not the kind of life God intends for His children.”
When a man or woman is guided by the Spirit, there is life and peace and rest. But when you are rely on yourself, there is often turmoil, uncertainty, and anxiety.
Join us this weekend as we unpack what it looks like to hear and discern the voice of God. God really does have a voice, and it’s possible for ordinary people to hear it and follow.
