Today, we begin a new series based on 1 Peter 2:9-10, and I believe it will help you discover God’s call on your life, and purpose for your life. So often we are swayed by how well or how badly things are going, and we get caught up in other people’s opinion of us. The truth is, God’s love for us is constant—even when we are at our worst, and nothing changes the fact that we are chosen by Him. For more information, visit our website at www.mtzchurch.org
Today, we look at the famous parable of “The Prodigal Son”. It is a moving story that teaches us about God’s love for us and his willingness to forgive us no matter what we have done. But there is more to the story than meets the eye . . . much more.
After the Dallas Cowboys had won the Super Bowl, Tom Landry made this observation. “The overwhelming emotion–in a few days, among the players on the Dallas Cowboys football team–was how empty that goal was. There must be something more.” There is nothing else but God that will fill the emptiness in our soul.
What is it that you are substituting for God? It will disappoint you. This Sunday, we look to the scriptures to see that God uses empty vessels to fill with His desires for you!
Today we focus on just one of the things that happens when believers die. The verse we are focusing on this morning is in 2 Corinthians 5 verse 10, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.”
