THE REVELATION OF REST
God created many “signs to mark the seasons, days, and years” (Gen.1:14). But He established the seven-day-week by revelation. For God worked six days to create the heavens and earth and on the seventh day He rested. So, He declared the seventh day “holy,” which means set apart for special use–– in this case–– rest.

The interaction between the earth, sun and moon were put in motion to run like a clock and a calendar, establishing our days, months and years. But our weeks are lived by faith, for no other sign but God’s Word reveals the seven-day-week.

So, with this in mind, let us begin this year with the goal of following not only God’s rhythm of creation, but also His rhythm of revelation. Working and resting by faith in the One who made us in His image and for Himself. Our Lord Jesus leads us in this saying, “Whatever the Father does, the Son also does” (John 5:19). Our Lord Jesus is our revelation of rest, for He is our Sabbath Rest.

Having Faith as a Foundation for Your Family

July 19, 2015 | Genesis 2:18-25 | family

In this introductory sermon to our Faith and Family series, Pastor Gary shows us how God designed the family from the very beginning to be under his authority, to pursue his purposes, and to be soaked in his grace. We must follow our Creator’s blueprint for the family, but also receive his grace as none of us are perfect parents, siblings, children or spouses.
