Intentionally, part 2: Now What

In general, God’s way of communicating with his own people is to be clear but frequently to be incomplete. We experience confusion not because He cannot be understood and obeyed but because it leaves questions that he isn’t ready to answer. Satan often tries to twist God’s incompleteness into untrustworthiness. He turns people’s confusion about what God did not say into confusion about what God clearly did say. The essence of faith in these times is to believe and act on what God said without getting distracted by what God did not say, trusting that further instructions will come when needed.

From Series: "Intentionally"

This 4-week series is centered on Intentionally living on mission as we’re connecting with Jesus, the church, and our community. Clearly seeing that God wants to work through us, we are invited to intentionally get in the game. We don’t have to clearly know all of the details of the game plan to answer “Now what?” We can trust our captain and just take the next step. With the actual race in view, we can fend off distractions and stay the course. And even when others misunderstand, we can stay on message, trusting God alone, who is the one who changes even unwilling hearts. In the Book of Acts we see Paul and the early disciples challenged in ways we are familiar with. We can be encouraged to live Intentionally, as they did.
