Here is this week's WINNING
The God-Oriented Life
by Tom Goodman
Do people walk out of our Bible study classes and worship
Stirred by the greatness of God?
Moved by the grace of God?
Expectant for the activity of God?
In other words, do we lead people to live a God-oriented life? The commitment to live in this manner isn’t a one-time event but a life-long process. We have to constantly challenge each other to orient our lives to God like a compass needle drawn to the North Pole.
What does a God-oriented life look like?
First, we honor God through worship. Through our daily devotionals and weekly attendance in worship services, we give God the honor due Him.
Second, we honor God through prayer. Those who live a God-oriented life are those who think of prayer as a “first response” and not a “last resort” in dealing with concerns.
Third, we honor God through faithful living. The Bible says, “Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering”

This Sunday we’ll begin a four-week series of messages called “The God-Oriented Life.” Come renew the wonder and joy you were meant to have in the presence of the King!
See you at 8:15 or 10:45 a.m.!
