Generosity in the Land of Plenty

Wayfaren: Those who journey with God

This passage gives us a strategy for being God's people in the land of plenty. (Deuteronomy 26)

From Series: "Wayfaren: Those who journey with God"

The Exodus story in the Bible teaches us a hard truth: You can take a people out of slavery in a second, but you can only take the slavery out of a people through a journey. Like the Israelites, we love the drama of a journey begun— the dramatic departure from Egypt, crossing the Red Sea and winning as the Egyptians are swallowed up. But then like the Israelites, we get tired of the journey. We wander around wondering “is God with us or not?” We have little imagination for a long obedience in the same direction. What do we do after the Red Sea, after the noise of deliverance, after we believe? We learn to journey with God— we discover how to be a wayfaren people. Join us this Sunday at 9am or 11am as we learn to journey together!
