Hey everyone…it’s been a few weeks! Hope everyone is cool with the Big Room makeover. If you have any suggestions about it, lemme’ know (albeit, a suggestion that we put a drop ceiling in will be ignored 😛 )
I want to remind everyone that we are going back to two services starting this Sunday (August 1st), at 9 and 11am.
We’re going to continue our study in Luke this Sunday, reading Luke 8:26-39 .
Evil is a real force in our world. What characterizes evil as you read the description of this man…what effect does evil have on him?
We have a lot of different views about how to tackle the problem of evil in our world, but I would say that this passage shows us the ultimate answer. The answer is obvious as we read this, but is it the answer you go to when struggling with a particular temptation or habit in your own life? Jesus has the power to restore us to God’s original intent for our lives, but way too often we settle for chains, don’t we?
Why do you suppose Jesus grants the request of demons and pagan hostiles, but NOT the request of someone who sincerely seems to appreciate Him (v38-39)? What lesson can we learn about our OWN lives from that?
This should be an interesting exploration…hope to see you Sunday (at 9 or 11am).
