Sunday Recap for May 7, 2017:
Man's Ways vs. God's Ways

Mission Highlight: Thank you Alicia for sharing the Mission Highlight this Sunday about going to Spain with a team from our church this summer! Alicia is 15 years old, a current sophomore in high school, and a part of our youth group. This summer she will be traveling to Spain with other volunteers from our church at our sister church's English camp in Vilassar de Mar. Throughout her entire life, Alicia has always been inspired to travel, meet new people from different ethnic backgrounds, and experience cultures unfamiliar to her. She decided to go on this trip because she knew it will be an amazing opportunity and she believes it is very important to help other people grow in language as well as grow in language herself. This trip is meaningful to her because she wants to know that she can help people and be reaffirmed in her abilities, gain confidence and be able to teach others. Although she doesn't know what God might want to do in her heart and life through this trip, she hopes that God will guide her and show her how to live her life for him. She asks that we pray for the team's safe journey and that they get the most spiritually out of this experience, and also for our friends in Spain that we are intending to teach and get to know. 
Question #18: Will God allow our disobedience and idolatry to go unpunished?
Answer: No, every sin is against the sovereignty, holiness, and goodness of God, and against his righteous law, and God is righteously angry with our sins and will punish them in his just judgment both in this life, and the life to come.
This Week's Sermon: “Man's Ways vs. God's Ways" (Mark 7:1-37)

“He is not saying that if we get in touch with our deepest feelings, or learn to listen to what our heart is truly telling us, we will find our real identity and thereby discover happiness, fulfilment, or whatever. He is insisting that good and bad external and physical actions come from internal and spiritual sources, and that therefore the poisoned wells of human motivation are the real problem to which the purity laws are pointing.” (N.T. Wright)
“The Messiah would be ordained to expel and subdue the Gentiles, not to visit and embrace them…From a socioreligious perspective, Jesus’ visit to Tyre universalizes the concept of Messiah in terms of geography, ethnicity, gender, and religion in a way entirely unprecedented in Judaism.” (James Edwards)
Main: Hear and understand Jesus.
