Sunday Preview

November 27, 2013

I want to wish you a happy Thanksgiving. I think a key to contentment in life is to be thankful for what we have, rather than to be frustrated about what we don’t have. Being thankful for people is also vital. If we focus on the things people do that we appreciate, rather than how they fall short, it helps us enjoy life together. I’m very thankful for the people of Living Streams. We have a faithful, loving congregation that I’m proud to serve.

This Sunday my message is called, “The Divine Gift Exchange” from Psalm 68:17-35. Our church staff has a gift exchange at our Christmas party each year. We try to bless each other, and we may receive a nice gift ourselves. The gift exchange we have with the Lord is not an even trade. We exchange our weakness for his power. We trade our sin for his righteousness. We present our broken lives as an offering to the Lord, and he transforms us by his grace.

We will have a Thanksgiving service in our sanctuary Thursday morning at 9:00 am, and regular services this weekend. I hope you will join us as we continue to serve the Lord together.
