May's sermon series is focused around the story of the Judges--of their rise and fall, of their faith and disbelief. It's called "Finding God's Perfection in Our Imperfection" because when we try to go it alone, like many of the Judges ended up doing, we'll ultimately live out the imperfections of our lives and find failure in it. But if we follow God's will, he attributes the perfection of Jesus to us, our imperfections are washed away through his perfection, and we find godly success.
Here's the promo:
The Judges were great heroes even though each one was very messy. They followed God...at times. They followed themselves...a lot. In short, they were flawed. Kind of like us. Like these judges, who succeeded when they trusted God but failed when they trusted themselves more, we will never receive all God has for us if we go through life trusting ourselves to deliver the goods. Because the leadership of the judges' was flawed they anticipate the coming of Jesus, who comes to us as a true, perfect leader who does God's will. And if we seek God's will, if we allow God to shape and mold us, as a diamond is created out of tons of dirty carbon, the imperfections of our lives will be absolved and dissolved in the perfection of Jesus that God gives to us.
Join us throughout the month of May as each week we look at the story of one of the Judges, compare their story to the story of Jesus, and discuss how we find the way of God through it all.
