SUNDAY WORSHIP: SUNDAY, June 26, 2016 ~ 9 AM & 11 AM:
PREPARE FOR WORSHIP: We continue this week with “Changes that Heal”, with the second change that has potential to bring healing and wholeness to our lives: Boundaries. All of us struggle to establish good boundaries in our lives, but just as “bonding” to others is important, being able to “separate” from others is equally important. No one can find joy or wholeness if that joy and wholeness is dependent upon the attitude,actions, moods or opinions of others. We have to find our “true” self in our relationship to God, and this allows us to be independent of others, in a good manner, rather than living out of a sense of co-dependency. We turn to Genesis 3:1-13 this week in order to find help with establishing good boundaries for our lives. As you read this scripture, how does it speak to you about the power of appropriate boundaries in our life? Genesis 3:1-13: Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.” And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?” The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.” Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
