Love God & People

Perpetual Hope

Most of us wander through life looking for purpose and direction. We struggle under the weight of past regrets. We long for happy marriages or to be free from suffering. We want to do what is right and then be recognized for the good we do. Faced with unrelenting life under pressure, we cling desperately to an illusory hope.

In Jesus we at last find hope and the firm foundation of a life grounded in God. Through his resurrection, we find purpose and redemption. Because of Jesus, we are free to live with purpose in community with others. We discover that through his grace we can live under authority, endure suffering and forgo any right to recognition.

Join us as we discover the reassuring delights of Perpetual Hope.

Living a Legacy

As school begins and families jump back into the crazy pace of life, The Chapel wants to encourage you with four Biblical truths that will help families find strength and hope during seasons of weariness.

God At Work

Christians must regularly remember the mighty works of God—specifically in the person of Jesus (2 Tim 2:8). We who are saved by grace are part of God’s workmanship and must walk in good works (Eph. 2:10). Our focus on the work of God in our church and our own lives will encourage gratitude, stimulate faith, and remind us of the hope we have in the gospel. The work of God is not done. 

Welcome Home

The heart of hospitality is to use our personal space for the good of others. God invited us to join his family, and we should do the same for others.  We, who have been changed by Jesus have the incredible opportunity to display God's love and to see the world changed--one space at a time.

  • Wk. 1:  Eph. 2:11-22 God has brought us into his home and family.
  • Wk. 2:  1 Peter 4:7-11 Show hospitality within the church family.
  • Wk. 3:  Lev. 19:33-34, Heb. 13:1-2 Use your home as  space for strangers to enjoy hospitality.
  • Wk. 4:  Rom. 12:1-2 Generous hospitality is counter-cultural, a radical departure from the way of the world to the way of Christ.
Jonah

In the Book of Jonah, we see both the heart of God for this world and how God’s people can react to that heart. Jonah reminds us that God will go to great lengths to bring the nations to himself, and that there is no other method to do it than through his people. Even amidst his people’s disobedience and bitterness, God brings his gracious purposes about to reveal his salvation to the world.

Key Verses:
 
Jonah 2:9
But I with the voice of thanksgiving will sacrifice to you; what I have vowed I will pay. Salvation belongs to the LORD!
 
Jonah 4:10-11
And the LORD said, “You pity the plant, for which you did not labor, nor did you make it grow, which came into being in a night and perished in a night. And should not I pity Nineveh, that great city, in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know their right hand from their left, and also much cattle?”

He Lives

He lives! And everything changed!
 
The doubter became the devoted. The denier of his Master became the defender of the faith. The persecutor of the believer became the preacher of the Word. The results of the resurrection were immediate and long lasting.
 
The profound changes in the lives of the first century followers of Jesus both encourage and challenge us to look at the impact of the resurrection in our own lives. The resurrection means we can live with great expectation and the bold assurance of our salvation. Because he lives, we have a living hope.
 
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:3-5

The Power of Invitation: Come and See
The Power of Invitation

28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.  Matthew 11:28-30

How often do you “invite” someone to see a YouTube posting, a funny video on Facebook?  We say, “Hey, look at this…”  Or, “Did you see the video about....”  

Clearly we invite people to what excites us. Is it fair to ask how excited are with about Jesus?  In a way, I think it is.

We also warn.  Consider how we warn others about bad traffic, hopefully helping them forgo the frustrations of Baton Rouge traffic!  Again, is fair to ask how concerned we are about where people are headed, not in town, but life?  I think so.  

This series isn’t about guilting people into action.  It is about showing them the Inviting God who pursues us in Love.  If this is his heart, and he pursued us through another’s invitation, aren’t we motivated to consider inviting others to him?
