MID-WEEK MESSAGE 08-28-2019

Dear Skycrest Family,


I've been enjoying our journey through four of the smallest books of the Bible. So far, we've studied Haggai, Philemon, and Obadiah. You can find audio recordings of our sermons online at www.skycrest.net/sermons


In last Sunday's message on Obadiah, we learned how the prophet was condemning the nation of Edom for their sin of pride; and then the author turned his attention to pride in all nations, and all people. That got me reading blogs and articles online about pride and humility. I found this quote I thought you'd like:


So who is the most humble person? Three names come to mind.

  1. Moses. After all, the Bible describes him as humble. “Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth” (Num. 12:3).

  2. Jesus. The Son of God is our perfect example of how we are to live with humility (Phil. 2:5-11).

  3. _______________________. Actually I don’t know the third person’s name. Maybe it’s you. But it is someone who loves Jesus wholeheartedly and serves so humbly and quietly that no one even notices.


Up next Sunday, we'll look at our final book of the Bible in the Small But Mighty series: Titus. Titus is a New Testament letter written by the Apostle Paul to a church leader, Titus, stationed on the island of Crete. We'll see what Paul had to say to Titus, and what God might have to say to us today.


I'm looking forward to worshiping with you at 9:45 a.m. (Modern) or 11:00 a.m. (Traditional).


Don't forget our Outreach Dinner this Saturday evening. The dinner is FREE for anyone who'd like a free meal, at 4:30 p.m. on the last Saturday of every month. We usually serve 100 or more guests, which means we can use lots of help! Come by the church Fellowship Hall kitchen at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., or 3:00 p.m., or come by about 5:45 p.m. to help with cleanup. A huge thanks to the volunteers who serve in this ministry-- it has made a huge impact on our community!


See you this weekend!


Emily
