At LIFT we’ve begun a series about ELEMENTS. Last week, Ken shared about FIRE and how our WORSHIP of God has attributes of fire. It consumes, it purifies, and yes, it usually has some pain or cost attached. Tonight, I’ll continue and talk about EARTH! What it means to us today in regards to LIFE AND GROWTH, especially growth in our faith!
Speaking about the Earth and the Elements of life, there is ONE THING IN THE CENTER OF ALL THE ELEMENTS THAT IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT! Perhaps the following can help (in a cute way) point to this TRUTH:
Center of the Bible
What is the shortest chapter in the Bible? (Answer – Psalms 117)
What is the longest chapter in the Bible? (Answer – Psalms 119)
Which chapter is in the center of the Bible? (Answer – Psalms 118)?
Fact: There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118
Fact: There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118
Add these numbers up and you get 1188
What is the center verse in the Bible? (Answer – Psalms 118:8)
Does this verse say something significant about God’s perfect will for
our lives? The next time someone says they would like to find God’s perfect
will for their life and that they want to be in the center of His will, just
send them to the center of His Word!
Psalms 118:8 (NKJV) “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”
Now isn’t that odd how this worked out (or was God in the center of it)?
Hope to see you at LIFT!!
In His grip and grace,
Corey and Tanya
