Who will I learn from?

by Michael Oluwatosin OKUWOBIpublished on February 26, 2021

“Everyone is equal, but not everyone is on the same level.” That thought can be hard to take in and even bring up questions about who we are. In this week’s devotional, Pastor Dele shares truth that frees us from the tendency to expect everyone around us to conform to one level of “greatness,” When we look at the experience of others as valuable, our life can be richly blessed by their wisdom and knowledge of who God is. What if a posture of humility is what would help us reach a new level of our own?

When we think about injustice, it involves the oppressed and the oppressor; interestingly enough, both people are loved by God and created with glory and honor. How do we both confront the indignity of injustice while preserving the dignity that God created in the human being that we're confronting? In this week's devotional, Pastoral resident Ashley Edelen helps us understand the depths of dignity. Offering dignity to the oppressor and preserving the oppressed's dignity is hard to hear and live out. (Don't miss this week's word study on Friday; it will give you great insight into the depth and completeness of the Hebrew word righteous).

It's easy to find safety in a "just me and God" or even "just me and a few friends" mindsets. What would richness in relationships look like if we leaned into the "more" of relationships with the people God has placed in our path?

Life is not a simple endeavor. It is okay to lean on God when caught in tough times or uncertainty. In this week’s devotional, Pastor Dele Okuwobi shows us that we don’t have to go through those spaces alone; that we can lean into God in those spaces.
Have you ever heard the phrase "I'll rest when i'm dead?" Well, it sounds good, until you start living that way. Without rest, we can't grow and we can't see the world change the way we want it to. We challenge you this week to consider that "God thought so highly of rest, he created a space in time for Himself and he called it the Sabbath."

“Any race you run in, especially for your faith journey... the secret to winning is first deciding, ‘i’m going to run this race and I’m going to run it with everything I’ve got."

God calls us to do things for the Kingdom and oftentimes, we aren’t ready in the space that we are at the moment to carry it out. In this week’s devotional, Pastor Dele Okuwobi dives into why it is so important to lean into the training that God is putting us through to prepare us for the work that we each have been called to.
