This Sunday we will be kicking off a two-week series called, “The Hidden Option: Igniting Creativity to Solve Life’s Impossible Problems.” The big idea of the series will center on the fact that we live in a polarized world. We want everything to fit in box A or B, option 1 or 2. Fight or flight. Black or white. Left or right. But the Bible is filled with unexpected, hidden options. In this two-week series, we’ll explore how God can take seemingly impossible situations and use them for His glory.
This series will highlight the truth: our God is bigger than just two options. Jesus is the lion and the lamb. God is completely just and He extends grace. Those things seem like impossibilities, but they are actually hidden options. By learning to find hidden options, you can become a better spouse, a better employee, a better friend, and even a better follower of Christ.
The First Message
The first message will focus on the story in the Gospel of John; where teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery and basically threw her in front of Jesus. The religious leaders tried to trap Jesus with only two options… But Jesus stepped outside of the trap and found a third option, one that hadn’t been presented. Even though the situation seemed hopeless, Jesus’ creativity allowed f a better option.
The Second Message
The second message is centered around the story in the book of Judges, where Gideon appears to only have two options while facing the possibility of being slaughtered by an army larger than his own. We’ll see Gideon, as a military leader, overcame impossible odds through a creative solution. We’ll look at some practical ways to find the hidden option in your own impossible situations.
This promises to be a short but significant series and I thank God for the opportunity to deliver His Word!
