On the surface we see the story of a young shepherd boy as a physical fight, which it was, but it was much more than that. It was a spiritual fight and the victor of that fight was God. Only the Lord can save, it was never about the spears or swords, but about our faith of the God who is with us. In David's eyes, he wasn't alone in the fight, it was God who would defeat Goliath. But it was David's faith that led him onto that battlefield. This week Shawn talked about the biblical and historical account of what we would all categorize as an impossible fight.

When we forget Jesus, we lose our way and by default we try to create shortcuts back to God to justify ourselves before him. There is no formula to justify ourselves, no way back other than to sit at his feet and simply ask for mercy. It is when we cry out for mercy, that the ears of Heaven hear. It is in our fading strength when we are most likely to take a knee and ask for forgiveness. Unfortunately, it is easy to forget how good God is and how his sacrifice was enough to cover our sins.

For the last three weeks we have walked through the story of Ruth and watched a woman of character deal head on with loss, fear, and insecurity by moving toward God in the struggle. Ruth did not see what was happening behind the scenes, but because she pursued what God might have for her, she was in a place where she could experience what God might have for her life.

Having resolve to do these things is a good and God-honoring thing to pursue, but without first seeking God, these achievements are a hollow victory. Forgetting to seek God's face and to know Him better is the first thing we all need most. In John 10:10, Jesus says that he came that we might have life and life abundantly.

A membership class will not make someone a member. A member is someone who has a relationship with Jesus Christ and is fully engaged in the life God has called them to alongside other believers. It is a family to be a part of, not something we sign up for. Just like any family, we enjoy each other's friendship, encourage one another, argue at times, sit at the table, and apologize and find ways to help serve our brothers and sisters in Christ. At Red Rocks Church we believe in the family of God. All of us have a place at the table thanks to what Jesus Christ has done for us. We don't build the church; God builds the church and calls us to play a part using our God-given abilities, resources and time to run the one and only race that matters. We get to do Kingdom work and invite others to join the family that they have always been longing for. God's church is not a building; it is the people of God that make up the church.
