Flood Church – Live

Thank you for joining the Flood Live Stream!

Please continue to visit this page, throughout the week, as we stream our mid-week gatherings, and special content to bring us together during this challenging time. You can follow us on Instagram, TwitterFacebook, and YouTube for alerts on when we’ll be going live next!

You may have a better experience by viewing directly on our YouTube channel: www.YouTube.com/FloodSanDiego/live

There, you can engage with your fellow Floodsters in the comments, and sometimes the stream is a bit more stable.

Lastly, “social distancing” does not mean relational distancing! Say hi, let us know how you’re doing, let us know how we’re doing, or send any questions to [email protected].

Today's Passage and Notes - July 5, 2020

Psalm 23:3
3 He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.

He guides me along right paths: The Lord takes care of our directional needs.

Bringing honor to his name
What’s in a name?

A name represented a person’s character and reputation.

So to praise God’s name is to praise God
David thought God’s name was the most magnificent name in all the earth.

He leads us that he might reveal his character to us!
He leads us that he might reveal his reputation to us!
And in revealing his character and reputation to us we will then turn around and reveal his character and reputation to everyone in our world.

His Nature is in his Name

Psalm 8:1-9 NLT
1 O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
Your glory is higher than the heavens.
2 You have taught children and infants
to tell of your strength,
silencing your enemies
and all who oppose you.
3 When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
the moon and the stars you set in place—
4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
human beings that you should care for them?
5 Yet you made them only a little lower than God
and crowned them with glory and honor.
6 You gave them charge of everything you made,
putting all things under their authority—
7 the flocks and the herds
and all the wild animals,
8 the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
and everything that swims the ocean currents.
9 O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!

Who are you?
Psalm 8:3-4
3 When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
the moon and the stars you set in place—
4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
human beings that you should care for them?
5 Yet you made them only a little lower than God
and crowned them with glory and honor.
6 You gave them charge of everything you made,
putting all things under their authority—
7 the flocks and the herds
and all the wild animals,
8 the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
and everything that swims the ocean currents.

So who are you that this great and magnificent God is mindful of you?

You are Created by God
Genesis 1:27 (NLT)
27 So God created human beings in his own image.
In the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.

The well kept secret of the ordinary: The ordinary is meant to be a container of the divine a place where the life of God flows.

Because you are created by God you are seen by God.

You Are Called By God
Matthew 5:14-16
14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

Your value is not based on what you can do it’s based on what Jesus has done

• Because you are called by God you are known by God
• You Are Cared for By God
• Because You Are Cared for by God you are valued by God
• To God it’s all about us, to us it’s all about Jesus!
• Because of who God is we can be all he has called us to be

Next Steps: Because of Jesus…
• I am a child of God (Galatians 3:26)
• I am alive (Romans 6:11)
• I am chosen (Ephesians 1:4)
• I am joyful (Galatians 5:22-23)
• I am healed (1 Peter 2:24)
• I am fearless (Isaiah 43:5)
• I am not shaken (Psalm 62:6)
• I am known even before I was born (Jeremiah 1:5)
• I am loved (John 3:16)
• I am fierce in confidence and boldness because God is with me
• I am a faith-filled, life speaking, fully devoted follower of Christ

"XXIII: The Satisfied Life" - Series Coloring Pages

As a way to practice resting well through this season, we’ve created some original coloring pages that work in conjunction with our current series on Psalm 23. Hopefully, they’ll help you unwind, reduce anxiety, and rest in the Lord’s loving care.

As you color each page, reflect on the specific verse it represents. Allow the act to be a meditative prayer, “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.”

When you’ve completed your page, feel free to share a picture with us by tagging us on instagram @floodchurch, and using the hashtag #floodathome.

We’ll continue to add more pages that work with the verses to come in the following weeks.

Verse 1: “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.” (Right-Click to Download)

Consider Becoming a Foster Parent
Olive Crest, one of our partners at Flood, is committed to transforming the lives of at-risk children through the healing power of foster care and adoption. With fewer mandated reporters interacting with kids during COVID-19, Olive Crest is preparing now for what may be ahead. This is a perfect time for families to begin or move through an approval process- as foster, adoptive, or short term host families – for any who are called to open their homes in any capacity.

Ways to Learn and Grow
We know that many of you are seeking ways to listen, learn and grow in this season. As a church community, we believe the gospel is good news that tears down walls and builds bridges. Our faith in Jesus leads us to intentionally build bridges across ethnic, cultural, economic, and gender barriers. There is more work to do, and we have not arrived, but as disciples of Jesus we have and will continue to learn and work against any and all forms of racism, racial injustice and violence, in Jesus’ name. Click HERE for a list of resources and ways you can grow and
learn with us.

Anxiety Resources Page
We have created a webpage with resources on how to understand and reduce anxiety. Find those workshops, podcasts, and more at DIVEintoFLOOD.com/Anxiety
