Mission Hills Church
The Big Ten | Forget Balance, Find Rhythm
Most people in the western world can name a least a few of the 10 Commandments. Most would say they're good standards to strive for or rules to live by. But why exactly did God give them to us? What kind of life are they pointing us towards? Join us for a deep dive into the Big Ten and a life-changing discovering of God's heart for each of us.

Welcome to Mission Hills!
Mission Hills is a church family—a family who wants to extend to you the same love, hope, and joy that we have received. We know that we cannot be all things to all people. But we do want to be one thing to all people. We want to be the place where anyone, of any age, of any level of spiritual maturity, of any economic class, of any ethnicity, of any church background—or no church background—can meet God in a way that transforms their life…forever!

If you are a first time guest, we would love to meet you! Stop by the Welcome Center for a free gift.
Rules don't create relationships, they regulate them.
The fourth commandment is about having a rhythm of remembering our God and restoring our strength.
// Remember the Sabbath by keeping it holy.
// God blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
//…the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God

Remembering our God is also about remembering who and whose we are.

Every problem we face ultimately traces back to someone replacing God rather than representing Him.

God isn't made stronger by our worship or weaker by our lack of it...but we are!

God was setting an example for us.
Recharging requires plugging in and powering down.

God’s plan for us isn’t balance, it’s rhythm.
1. Rhythm isn’t just a sign of life, it’s a source of life.
2. Rhythm can be busy and still healthy.
3. Rhythm depends on not doing as much as doing.

Rhythm is about appropriateness.
The fourth commandment is about having a rhythm of remembering our God and restoring our strength.

What's my daily, weekly, monthly and yearly rhythm of:
· God
· Family
· Friends
· Work
· Rest
1. Think rhythm, not balance.
2. Understand that rhythms aren’t rigid.
3. Anticipate that rhythms change with the seasons of life.
4. Remember that rhythm is as much about what you don’t do as what you do.
