Galatians 6:1-18
We Reap What We Sow

We are responsible for one another.
Don't be mislead.
Those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.
Be a blessing, especially to those of the household of faith.
It doesn't make any difference whether we have been circumcised or not. What counts is whether we really have been changed into new and different people.
How strange it would be for a prisoner who had been set free to walk back into his cell and refuse to leave! How strange for an animal, released from a trap, to go back inside it! How sad for a believer to be freed from the bondage of sin, only to return to rigid conformity to a set of rules and regulations! (Life Application Study Bible)

Luke 8:22-25 and Hebrews 6:19
Subject: "Your Anchor In The Time of a Storm"

Luke 8:22-25 - One day Jesus said to his disciples, "Let's cross over to the other side of the lake." So they got into a boat and started out.  On the way across, Jesus lay down for a nap, and while he was sleeping the wind began to rise. A fierce storm developed that threatened to swamp them, and they were in real danger. The disciples woke him up, shouting, "Master, Master, we're going to drown!' So Jesus rebuked the wind and the raging waves. The storm stopped and all was calm! Then he asked them, "Where is your faith?"  And they were filled with awe and amazement.  They said to one another, "Who is this man, that even the winds and waves obey him?"
Hebrews 6:19 - This confidence is like a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain of heaven into God's inner sanctuary. 

The Word of God is our anchor.
His Word gives us stability.
What is God's purpose for the storm? (1) To get our attention; (2) To reset our focus on Him; (3) To purify and purge us from sin
God wants to conform us to His image...... be you transformed
God equips us to serve Him.
What makes God's Word an anchor? (1) By reading the word; (2) By meditation
Below is a snippet of the sermon.
