Gideon was the weakest member of the weakest family of the weakest nation - with weak faith. Our weakness, combined with trust in God, becomes incredible strength. The most important thing we can do is strip away every layer of self sufficiency.

The Story

We often think of our life as a mishmash of hundreds of individual moments in time.  But what if everything we experience is really part of one great narrative? When we see the Bible as one seamless narrative, we can find a daily purpose in God’s eternal plan.

Judges 6:7-16

Are We There Yet?

Exodus 32:11

From the point where the Israelites crossed the Red Sea, the Promised Land is a journey of just a few weeks. But instead they wandered forty years. Why? How do our wildernesses shape us?

Exodus 3:11-15

God’s presence in your life is all you need. Like Moses, you know him! Now you get to go through life doing miracles like Moses did. Salvation is not a human project. Jesus is the human name of God. This table is our Passover.

I Dreamed a Dream

Genesis 37:18-28

When we align our lives to God's grand story, we find strength like Joseph to handle all the bad things life throws at us. Despite all evidences to the contrary, God knows what he’s doing in your life.

Birth of a Nation

Genesis 16:1-2; 17:15-22

Sometimes God's way seems foolish and naive. We become impatient and lose sight of our role in the story. We want to trust the Ishmaels of our own plan B rather than the Isaacs of God's plan A.

The Big Idea

Genesis 1:1, 26-27

The Bible isn't a collection of unrelated stories, but a beautiful mural joined together to tell the grand story of God's great love for us and the lengths to which God goes to draw us to Him.

How High?

2 Samuel 6

Worship is our response to the majesty of God who is “high and lifted up.” If you were to get in touch with a sense of awe, wonder and astonishment before God, what would that look like?

How Deep?

Luke 10:38-42

Too often we are like Martha—busy, distracted, and skating on the surface. It takes daily time sitting at Jesus’ feet if we are to grasp how deep is the love of God. Escape the world’s programming. Let God reach deep inside you.

Vic Pentz, Miriam Ryan
How Long?

Ephesians 3:14-19

Love suffers long, says I Corinthians 13. Human love has limits, but God will never abandon you. There are ten distinct passages sprinkled throughout Scripture where God says essentially, “I will never leave you or forsake you.”
