Why is the “Get To” So Important?
We looked last Sunday together as a church body during the sermon message at how the people of Israel “did not know the LORD or the work that he had done for Israel.” (Judges 2:10, ESV) These were ominous words, for they led into this related outcome: “And the people of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the LORD and served the Baals.” (Judges 2:11)
Turning our heads away from God results in our hearts turning away from God. This further leads to our lives drifting away from God.
We are seeing this very same pattern in our own country and culture today.
Yet, none of this has (or ever has) taken God by surprise. He is fully in control, and He is working all things out for His glory and according to His plan. He is a good and holy and loving God.
This is what people often forget about God. That is why God’s people have an incredible “Get To” opportunity in sharing and showing what following Jesus Christ looks like, in our families, in our church family, and out in our community and across the world. This all flows from delighting in the LORD – Yahweh – our God through faith in Jesus Christ by the power and in the pleasure of the Holy Spirit.
We are looking forward to learning more about our incredible God and His amazing grace and holiness this coming Sunday. Hope to see you there too!
Celebrating Jesus Christ with you,
