God Takes Us from Nothing to Everything

2015-08 The People of God (s)Part 1. The hymn “Amazing Grace” has a wonderful phrase we sometimes forget the power of: “I once lost, but now am found.” What does it mean to be lost? If we are found, what should change? Is God the center of who we are, or just an add-on? These question set us looking at what it means to be part of something bigger than ourselves. We are “The People of God.”

God has a habit of displaying His power in a way we don’t often look for. He loves to take nothing and turn it into something. Scripture shows this pattern time and again. The first step in being God’s people is recognizing His desire to take all we are and display His nothing to something power. But God’s promise is much greater than “something”; He intends to give us everything.
