MID-WEEK MESSAGE 08-14-2019

Dear Skycrest Family,


I have to confess, there was a glitch in my "is this a book of the Bible" quiz last Sunday! My written notes said Judah but I couldn't read them (I think the baby spilled his breakfast on that page) so I said Jude. The written answer said no (Judah is not a book of the Bible), but it caught me off guard because that didn't seem right to me! Jude is indeed a book of the Bible- a short, one-chapter book, located between 3 John and Revelation. So if you missed a couple on the quiz, you're not alone!


We did this little quiz last Sunday leading into the new sermon series Small But Mighty, in which we are studying four of the smallest books of the Bible. Last Sunday we read the opening verses of Haggai, in which God instructs the Israelites to rebuild the Temple after exile. They had been putting it off for a decade! Hopefully we've all identified a few things this week which God has called us to do that we've been saying "later" to.


Up next Sunday, we'll be reading Philemon, from the New Testament. In Philemon, Paul challenges his friend to release a runaway slave who has become a brother in Christ. He challenges Philemon to see beyond a world where slavery was normal, and he challenges us to see beyond our world and into the Kingdom of God.


Looking forward to sharing with you on Sunday, 9:45 a.m. or 11:00 a.m.!
