What are the firm foundations on which we build? What is rock solid for us going forward over the next few weeks?
We are about to start a sermon series on Firm Foundations exploring 'who am I?', 'where do I belong?' and 'what am I living for?'. We will be exploring why it is important that we are children of God adopted into God's family, and what it means to be a citizen of both heaven and earth.
As we start a new term at work, school, church and in our community what are the foundations that we want to build on further? How might we use the gifts God has given us to bring purpose, hope and new life to others? How can we be both innocent children of God receptive to the nourishing care of a God who loves and cherishes us, and responsible adult citizens of both earth and heaven bringing the wisdom and insight God has given us?
C S Lewis wrote, 'Christ wants a child's heart but a grown-up’s head. He wants us to be simple, single-minded, affectionate and teachable, as good children are: but He also wants every bit of intelligence we have to be alert at its job, and in first class fighting trim.' (Mere Christianity).
