We are all familiar with sayings such as "A man's word is his bond," or "A handshake is as good as a contract." These sayings belong to another age. We live in a world where contracts are worth only the paper they are written on, and promises are broken with impunity. Today, a man's word means little, and a handshake is merely a handshake. In this message we learn the good life consists of making sure we do what we say we will do. As the old Gaelic proverb says: There is no greater fraud than a promise not kept.
The "Power of Oneness" Sunday format will resume when we're able to meet again on our campus as a church family. Meanwhile you'll find resources on our website at www.creeksend.org, including a weekly Bible study video message and printable study and sermon notes for the whole family.
(Power of Oneness -temporarily suspended- refers to the following: The Creek’s End Family gathers for Bible Study at 9:30 AM. Little Creek, Creek Kids, and E-Three Students will also meet during this time. At 11:00 AM we will worship TOGETHER, with only Little Creek meeting the second hour. We believe not only the Creek’s End family needs to worship together, but our individual families need to worship together as a family as well. )
The Jews lived under constant Roman oppression. One demand by a Roman soldier or citizen would require a Jewish person to carry their burden for a mile. It was an inconvenient and unjust law. Israel lived in anticipation of the coming of Messiah. One who would deliver them from such tyranny! Now, here Jesus stood…telling them they should carry their Roman neighbors pack for a second mile?!? Surely this could not be what He meant. But it was. In this concept lies the secret to true joy and living a good life.
