Sermon Date: December 24, 2017
Speaker: Pastor Martin Hawley
"It's my life; I can do what I want, when I want, with whom I want … as long as nobody gets hurt." The problem is eventually someone does get hurt. On Thanksgiving Sunday, November 19, at 8:00, 9:30, 11:00 a.m., and 4:00 p.m., South Bay Bible Church will begin a new, six-part series entitled, Right in the Eye: Why be Ordinary When You can be Extraordinary?
When you focus on you, you usually hurt yourself, the people around you, the people who love you, and the people who are coming behind you.
"When you live for you, you'll never become the best version of you. You will never be extraordinary. A relationship with God isn't about staying out of trouble. It's about being extraordinary," says Martin Hawley, senior pastor.
In this provocative six-part series, Pastor Hawley plunges viewers into the moral mayhem depicted in the Old Testament book of Judges. "All the people did whatever seems right in their own eyes (21:25)." Telling the story, pastor will present disturbing Biblical narratives as a filter through which to view and evaluate our own twenty-first century culture. The community is invited to South Bay Bible Church to learn how to escape the pain and hurt that comes from ordinary life.
Part 6 of 6: The whole time Israel was ping-ponging back and forth from obedience to disobedience - in an era when everyone did what was right in his/her own eyes - God was looking forward … to Christmas.
