From Pastor Jason: Seven Realities from Henry Blackaby

God is at work. The nature of his work is that of reconciling the world to himself by his love through the work of Christ. As if that wasn’t amazing enough he welcomes his kids to join him in this work. How good is that? Henry Blackaby notices this divine activity through the life of Moses in his classic work, Experiencing God. Using the story of Moses as a backdrop, Blackaby discerns seven different realities about the nature of God’s work in and through his people. I trust you will find each to be a refreshing reminder of God’s power, grace, and love that will help you “live the full adventure of knowing and doing the will of God,” as the book’s subtitle suggests.

Reality 1: God is always at work around you.

Reality 2: God pursues a continuing love relationship with you that is real and personal.
Reality 3: God invites you to become involved with him in his work.
Reality 4: God speaks by the Holy Spirit, through the Bible, prayer, circumstances, and the church to reveal himself, his purposes, and his ways.
Reality 5: God’s invitation for you to work with him always leads you to a crisis of belief that requires faith and action.
Reality 6: You must make major adjustments in your life to join God in what he is doing.
Reality 7: You come to know God by experience as you obey him and as he accomplishes his work through you.
Let’s discovery the reality of what God is up to here in San Jose … jump on board!
Peace …
Pastor Jason
