As Is

We’re a lot like porcupines. Fight or flight? We carry our own little arsenal of quills. We call these barbs rejection, condemnation, resentment, arrogance, selfishness, envy, contempt. Sure, we do a good job of hiding them, but if you get too close, you’ll find them. And these quills will burrow under your skin, fester, and even kill. So, like the porcupines, we learn to either attack or withdraw. We shoot our own barbs back, or we hide behind walls we build. We all have porcupines in our lives, but the problem is not just them. Each of us is somebody’s porcupine. We’re all slightly irregular, we’re all “as is” no matter how well we have learned to hide it. We’re all sheep that have gone astray. We’ve all fallen short of God’s glory. That’s the beauty of God. He accepts us and loves us, AS IS.

God's Team

Judges: Broken Heroes

The real honor in the Kingdom of God is not personal recognition, but being a part of God’s team. We each have different callings and different gifts. Like musical instruments played on their own – a cacophony. But together in concert – a symphony.

Scripture References: Judges 4:1-61

From Series: "Judges: Broken Heroes"

After the death of Israel’s great leader, Joshua, Israel was in the land God promised them. “In those days, Israel had no king; everyone did as he saw fit.” In the tumultuous 300 year history described in the book of Judges, a cycle appears and reappears: sin, judgment, salvation…and back to sin. Throughout, God raises men and women as instruments of his salvation – but each hero proves to be broken and flawed, reminding us that only God can provide a perfect savior.
