Vacation Bible School: Game On! (AC)

Jul 16, 2018 // Antioch Campus

Grab your megaphones, lace up your cleats, and tune up your horn. It’s time to gear up for the big game! Join us for a week of preparing for life’s big game at Game On! Kids will begin each day at the Pep Rally. From the Pep Rally, kids will gather at the Field House where they will be equipped to dig deep into God’s Word. Kids will learn that God has given them everything they need through His divine power. Each day kids will make crafts, play fun games, enjoy tasty snacks, sing cool songs, and learn about missions. VBS is for kids ages 5 - entering 5th grade in the Fall. To attend VBS the child must turn 5 on or before 9/1/18 and must be entering Kindergarten - 5th grade in the Fall. We have a nursery - preschool program for our volunteers' children. If your younger kids want to attend you can volunteer.

Devoted - Titus Series

Jul 22, 2018 //

We often admire people who display devotion to something or someone. A devoted mother or father garners praise for their parenting; a devoted athlete receives acclaim for their work ethic. Devotion conveys the idea of commitment or loyalty. It also reveals what a person holds dear to their heart.

To be devoted means that you are dedicated to a person or thing in your emotions, will, intellect, and actions. In short, whatever it is that you are devoted to is all-consuming. You want it (your will), you enjoy it (your emotions), you think about it (your intellect), and you do something about it (your actions). There is no doubt that a person can have many devotions, but there will always be a supreme devotion in a person’s life.

The apostle Paul wrote a letter of instruction to an emerging church leader on the island of Crete, named Titus. Titus is told that he should appoint qualified elders so the church would be “put in order” (1:5). Near the conclusion of Paul’s letter he writes, “our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives”  (3:14). Paul’s concern wasn’t merely for church leadership; his concern was for the church as a whole. What Paul wanted most is for Christians to live productive lives. What is a productive Christian life? It’s a life that is devoted to doing what is good as a response to what God has done for us. 

Paul’s instruction that Christians should be devoted to good works is an appeal based on the finished work of Christ. He desires for Christians to understand that God “saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit…so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life” (3:5, 7 esv). And the result of understanding this is “so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works” (3:8 esv).

Our hope and prayer is that God would teach us how to be devoted to good works, not to earn God’s favor and grace, but as a result of being saved by God’s grace. There is a relationship between the gospel and good works, and it’s important we don’t confuse how they relate. As we engage with Paul’s letter, let us prayerfully seek God’s direction for how we can live productive Christian lives.
