If you were called to preach just one message in your life, what would you preach about? Think about that for just a moment. With your one moment and effort for God, what would you preach with your one message? This spring we’re going to preach a series of 5 messages that in and of themselves could be that one message. In this new series called, Back to the Basics: Good News That Never Gets Old, we’re going to look at 5 important truths that every person needs to know, accept and believe in Christ. These messages are built on the foundation of truth found throughout the Bible, and while each one is important, when you tie them all together you get a story of the love of God that’s lavish and filled with grace, mercy, and forgiveness. Come ready to learn about the powerful, amazing, unbelievable, unstoppable love of God that will remind you that God doesn’t just like you, He’s crazy about you!
One of the most unique truths about the creation story is that God made Adam out of the dust of the ground. For a time Adam was alone, but God recognized that wasn’t good and formed Eve from the rib of Adam. Of all the amazing things God created in the beginning, people were the only beings made in the image of God. That’s incredibly important because that truth points to a relationship with God. As His children, we are image bearers of God Himself. In the natural world we know that images are erected to display or point to the original and glorify the original. God made humans in his image so that the world would be filled with reflectors of God. Images of God. This weekend we’ll be reminded that God is Creator, and He formed you in His image for a purpose.
