Adam’s Devotional – March 1-7, 2018

From Adam…

Two words. With just two words, Jesus teaches us that we can’t do this faith thing alone, that we are all a part of the same family, and Jesus completely transforms how we relate to God.  During the season of Lent, our church is spending some quality time on the Lord’s prayer.  Todd is preaching on the prayer every sunday and small groups are focusing their discussions on the Lord’s prayer every week.  It’s with the first two words of the Lord’s prayer that Jesus completely shifts the way we think about God, ourselves, and one another.  OUR FATHER. “Our” we are called to this life of faith together. How often do you treat your faith as something private instead of something communal? Who is God calling you to do faith with? “Father” we are beloved daughters and sons of God. Who are the people, where are the places, and what are the things that you try to get your identity from that are not God? Do you believe that who you are at your very core is God’s beloved child? But God’s not the only one who’s family.  Everyone else is family too.  How often do you treat those around you as if they were less than you?  Who do you think God could be calling you to treat like family?  God’s up to something . . . be a part of it.
