18 Aug Why do we do what we do?
Have you ever wondered why we, as Christians, sing songs at church on Sunday mornings and at other church gatherings? Why we seek to serve each other and the community around us? Why we even gather at all? This week, Pastor Ken answers these and many more questions about why the Church acts the way it acts and does the things it does.
Taking us back to the Protestant catechisms formulated in the 16thand 17thcenturies (based on the Holy Scriptures found in the Bible), Pastor Ken explores some of the deepest questions that people have been asking about God and man for the past two millennia. And, because the Bible is our compass and plum line, he takes us directly to the Word of God to see what it has to say about how we should respond to the greatness and lovingkindness of our God and King, Who poured out His great love for us when He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to walk this earth among us and eventually take our place on the cross.
We love because He first loved us. We serve because He first served us. We are free to worship as prescribed in the Bible (the way God deserves to be worshipped!) and can boldly proclaim the truth about God, because the Holy Spirit empowers us and sets us free some self-consciousness. Whether we come together for corporate worship on Sunday mornings or meet in each other’s homes for small groups, our time spent together as believers helps us reorient our lives around Jesus – the only thing that truly matters. Why do we do what we do? Because He did what He did.
