Today's Passage and Notes - August 2, 2020

Psalm 23
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Psalm 23:6
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

How do we live a life of love?

1. WE RECEIVE LOVE AS A GIFT FROM GOD.

1 John 4:19
We love because he first loved us.

Hebrews 13:5
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

2. WE EMBRACE THE FREEDOM AND JOY OF SERVING OTHERS.

John 13:1, 3-5
1 It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

3. WE CHOOSE TO FORGIVE.

1 Peter 4:8
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Three things Forgiveness is Not:
a. Forgiveness may not involve reconciliation
b. Forgiveness does not mean we forget what happened.
c. Forgiveness does not mean you stop hurting.

Next Steps:
-Spend a day with Jesus (or a morning) 

-Choose to love those around you: Make a list of everyone who comes within 6 feet of you. Reflect on what it would like to love that person, to delight in them, to relate to them in a meaningful way, to promote their well-being. 

-Take a step on the journey of forgiveness. Think of someone you are in the process of forgiving. Ask God for the next step. 

"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.

Navigating Change + Uncertainty, Aug 10, Slide Size

Workshop: Navigating Change + Uncertainty
Monday, August 10th 7pm at DIVEintoFLOOD.com/Live
With Derek Olson and Alair Olson, LMFT

Now more than ever, we face change and uncertainty in numerous parts of life, and we often struggle in knowing how to respond well. We feel paralyzed, we check out, we try to control it all, we panic, we isolate, we blame, and the list goes on. In our time together, we’ll look at several different ways that we can acknowledge the challenges of change and uncertainty, invite Christ and others into that process with us, and choose how to respond with the ultimate aim of bringing God’s Kingdom to earth today. This workshop will include live Q&A.
RSVP HERE to receive the Workshop Resource Page.

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
