"Navigating the New Year with Wisdom"
Joshua Kennedy, Issachar Church, Sheridan, IN
As we embrace the new year, it's a time to reflect on the wisdom of 1 Chronicles 12:32, a scripture that has profoundly shaped the vision of Issachar Church. This verse speaks of the tribe of Issachar, who "understood the times and knew what Israel should do." Their insight and discernment are a guiding light for us as we navigate the complexities of our modern world with faith and purpose.
Understanding Our Times
In a world that's constantly changing, understanding the times we live in is crucial. This year, let's commit to seeking wisdom through God's Word, understanding the challenges and opportunities that lie before us. As we deepen our knowledge of the Scriptures, we gain insights into how to live effectively and righteously in our current context.
Simple Church, Profound Love
Our guiding principle, "Simple Church, Love God and Love People," reminds us of the fundamental truth of our faith. In a complex world, this simplicity is our anchor. Loving God and loving people is the essence of what it means to be a follower of Christ. This year, let's make these commandments the foundation of all our actions and decisions.
Worship as a Way of Life
Worship is our response to God's greatness and love. It's more than a weekly event; it's a lifestyle. As we journey through this year, let's find ways to incorporate worship into every aspect of our lives, acknowledging God's sovereignty and grace in both the mundane and the extraordinary moments.
- Fostering Connections
- Serving with Purpose
- Discipleship: A Journey of Growth
- Embracing God's Direction
