The Hands and Feet of God
There is a well-known Scripture in Matthew 6 where Jesus preaches about storing up treasures in heaven rather than on earth where they can be destroyed. He states His reason for this teaching in verse 21: "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also". Where is your heart today? You might say it's with your children, your loved ones, or the Lord, but what do you treasure? What do you spend most of your time thinking about and planning for? Now, I want to pivot and ask you to think about where God's heart is. What does He treasure? What does He think about the most? The answer, my friends, is YOU! David declares in Psalm 139 that if he were to count God's thoughts concerning him, "they would out number the grains of sand". Is there anything you've ever thought about that much? God thinks about us more and knows us better than we think about or know ourselves. And His goal ultimately, is that we would look a lot like Him. This week at Friendship, we begin our new sermon series called IMAGO DEI, which is "The Image of God". From the very beginning, He carefully designed us to look and be like Him. While sin has marred that intent, it cannot destroy it. He is still in the process of molding us into His image. Specifically this week, we're talking about being "The Hands & Feet of God". Join us to learn about how He wants us to go, preach, and serve in a way that causes others to see Jesus in us!
