It's week three of Warning Lights! This week, we're talking about Lane Departure Warning based on II Corinthians 11:1-4 & Revelation 2:1-5. Lane departure warning is somewhat of a new technological feature in many vehicles. Essentially, if you stray out of your lane, or the vehicle detects you weaving, the warning may be set to beep, or in some cars, actually vibrate the steering wheel, seat, and/or suspension. It is a helpful tool to get people back on track when they have either dosed off or become distracted. In our lives as Christians, we will experience numerous moments when we get off track, and sadly there is not always a beep or vibration in our brains letting us know we’ve left our intended trajectory. The early church struggled with the same thing, there were false prophets and apostles who quickly persuaded early Christians to adopt false teaching. Paul wrote to the Corinthian Church to admonish this behavior, and to recall them to a rightful faith in Christ. In the book of Revelation, we learn that the early church in Ephesus also had issues, but the writer reminds them to repent and reclaim the gift of forgiveness. Yes, we will fall off course, but God is always ready to welcome us back to the fold. Join us at 8:15, 9:30, or 11AM! -Chris
Don't forget to set your alarm for 2:12PM and join us as a congregation in praying for a breakthrough! "Gracious God, I pray that you would fill Mt. Moriah and its people with your Spirit. Help us to grow, to make new and better disciples, and to be a vital part of our surrounding community. I commit to joining with Mt. Moriah to make disciples of all nations knowing that you are with us always, until the end of the age. Amen"
