Read. The Lord replied, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest-everything will be fine for you.” -- Exodus 33: 14 (NLT)

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” -- Matthew 11:28 (NLT)

Ponder. Over and over again we are invited to come into God’s presence and receive rest. God, who knows each of us so intimately, who knows of our weariness, of our fears and worries, offers us the peace that can only come from resting within his grace and love. The Sabbath is a day that is to be set apart so that we may lean into God’s presence without the usual distractions of our busy lives. What is keeping you from accepting God’s invitation?

Read. Then Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made to meet the needs of people, and not people to meet the requirements of the Sabbath” -- Mark 2: 27 (NLT)

Ponder. Why do we see rest as a luxury or an indulgence; something that is shameful? Jesus reminds us that we need rest and that the Sabbath was given to us for that purpose. How might our feelings change if we recognized the Sabbath as a gift from our Creator?

For kids, families, and youth: Thursdays are for popsicles! Show up, grab a frozen treat and chill out with friends. We'll be posted up in the circle near the church's playground with popsicles, lawn games, sidewalk chalk, and bubbles to soak in the joy of summer with friends from 4-6 pm.

Read. The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. -- Psalm 23: 1-3 (NLT)

Ponder. It often seems that a busy calendar is a status symbol of some kind. That a long list of accomplishments equals a life well lived. The Psalmist reminds us that all we truly need in found in our relationship with God. What if we saw the Sabbath as an invitation to simply be in the presence of God?

Ponder. Ordinary work. We all have our to-do lists which often seem urgent and never ending. Yet God is clearly commanding us to set them aside on the Sabbath and rest in him. How might our perspective and stress level shift if we did as he commands?

Read. So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed. On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation -- Genesis 2: 1-3 (NLT)

Ponder. While needing to rest is often seen as a weakness in our culture, God sets aside an entire day for it and declares it holy. How might our attitude towards rest change if we too saw it as a holy act?

He replied, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being,[a] and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: You must love your neighbor as you love yourself.

-- Matthew 22:36-39

Ponder. God's justifying grace keeps our way straight. This grace is free IN and FOR ALL.
It helps us to better serve and share God’s love with everyone. How can you know God in your path today? How can you share his love with others?

Read. So if anyone washes filth off themselves, they will be set apart as a “special bowl.” They will be useful to the owner of the mansion for every sort of good work.-- 2 Timothy 2:21

Ponder. While we know we have God’s forgiveness, we are still challenged to be the best people that we can be and to wash the filth off ourselves to be ready for every sort of good work. This includes having grace for and forgiving others.

Ponder. Take a moment today, to think before you act. Consider whether or not there is something that you could do to better follow Jesus’ example or better share God’s love with others.

Ponder. More than just a simple commandment, these words challenge us to hold God above all and to show that love and respect in all that we say and do.

Read. The idols of the nations are silver and gold, made by human hands. They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see. They have ears, but cannot hear, nor is there breath in their mouths. The ones who make them will be like them. And so will all who trust in them. -- Psalm 135:15-18

Ponder. People are capable of making beautiful things. We admire artists of all types. That’s ok right, as long as we don’t worship them.

Read. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, -- 1 Timothy 2:5

Ponder. Are we willing to honestly evaluate and courageously confront, and name, our personal idols? Do we see our idols as affronts to the presence and power of Christ in us and through us? Are we sacrificing our time, our very lives, to those idols -- lives purchased by Christ who died and rose again so we may have forgiveness?

2) You are willing to compromise your beliefs for it.
3) You get angry if you can’t do it or can’t get it.
4) You value it more than people.

Read. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. -- Exodus 20:4

Ponder. John Calvin defined “idolatry” as worshiping of the gifts in place of the Giver himself. Thus, a false idol is not just an object but is anything we put on a pedestal that can seize the praise and service we owe to God alone. Is there anything like that in your life?

July 4 Worship - The Ten (Week 3): "No Idols"

When the Ten Commandments were written, we might guess that idols were being made like statues of gold. Giant items that people could touch and make sacrifices toward. Today, our idols tend to look a little different. Often our idols are people and ideas more than things and fineries. And yet the commandment remains the same: we are to have no idols that would distract us from who God is and how God loves. This week we’ll look at the Mars Hill speech that features the altar of an unknown god and imagine how we might purge our lives of the idols we so deeply, and sometimes so unknowingly, come to love.

Ponder. Let us God over everything and everyone else. Let us offer God our breath as worship!

There’s still an hour left for our Drive Thru Communion, and if you haven’t gone yet, I encourage you to take part in this unique experience. I was so touched by seeing the whole Communion liturgy as I drove along, having the time to stop and pray along the way, and receiving a special blessing from Flor Hoydilla and Jonathan Page. Thank you to all of the creative thinkers, strategic planners, and wonderful volunteers that helped make this happen. It was the first time I’ve had Communion in 6 months and I’m so thankful. #herndonumc
