Giving and Receiving the Knowledge of the Holy One

We want to know God and make him known. Our worship is for that very purpose. Seeing God for who he truly is as he has revealed himself in his Son by the Spirit leads us to respond to him in holy love and joy, and to communicate that joy to the world around us. We are here to make disciples, and our worship directs that work.

But the book of Proverbs won't let us rest content with generic or hypothetical responses to God. It forces our worship out into how we conduct ourselves in the highways and byways of life, making real choices about how we will live and building a real culture of faithfulness. This Lord's Day, we will see how our worship connects to our life in our families.

Family relationships are the center of a life of joy and gladness or a life of sorrow and pain, and they will be either one of those to the degree that they are the site of mutual giving and receiving of the knowledge of the Holy One. Join us in that loving knowledge this Lord's Day!
