Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

March 12, 2017 message: “Giving Up Expectations”

Abraham followed God’s call to leave his homeland and travel to the place God promised his descendants, even though he didn’t know how it would all work out. When Nicodemus is talking to Jesus, he has a hard time understanding what God’s grace is really about because he is used to thinking in terms of religious structure. Sometimes we just cant know what’s going on or what’s coming next. God doesn’t guarantee any future circumstances or uninterrupted prosperity, but we can trust that God will work with us to make the best result out of even the most hopeless of places.
