. Right Beside You | The Grace Place


I am continuing “The Diamond Life: Making A Difference,” our seven-part sermon series about running the bases of life the way God wants us to. I have entitled this weekend’s message “Living with Integrity!”
Every time I read Proverbs 10:7, it helps me keep my focus on what God says about integrity: "Good people will be remembered as a blessing but the wicked will soon be forgotten." It forces me to answer these questions: How do I want to be remembered? What will people remember about me when I die? 
Dads, what are your kids going to remember about you? Are they going to remember that you were never around? That you were impatient? That you had a temper?  That you were unreliable and inconsistent? That you cared more about sports than you did about your family? That you watched television more than you read the Bible?
What are you more interested in - image or character? Image can be changed overnight, but character takes a lifetime to develop. Romans 8:29 says God's purpose for your life is to make you like Jesus Christ. God wants to use all the circumstances in your life to develop character.  This weekend, I am sharing Biblical insights into how God wants to develop our character and help us become a person of integrity! 
Make sure you are in worship this weekend, as we discover what God says about integrity and how it enables us to invest our one and only life in a way that makes a difference in the lives of others! We have three identical services – Saturday at 6:00 p.m., Sunday at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.
Karon and I are leading our 10th trip to Israel (March 9-18 of 2020), and we invite you to join us! We have over 25 people signed up for this trip, which means there is room for only 12 to 15 additional people to join us. If you are interested in traveling with our group, you should probably consider signing up soon!
You will never travel anywhere that will so profoundly impact your spiritual life as will a trip to Israel. We will be visiting many sites associated with Jesus' earthly ministry. Each day, I teach from one of those sites on a Biblical event that took place there. Going to the very places that Jesus himself walked, talked, performed miracles, died and rose again is an amazing experience!
