You Were Created For So Much More
All too often we settle for things in life when God has so much more he wants to give us. And there is nothing like a vacation at the beach to help us gain some perspective on our priorities. The worries of our everyday lives get lost in the sound of the waves and God comes into clearer focus as we watch the sun set over the horizon. C.S Lewis once described it this way—"It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased". In this series we will explore the incredible gifts God wants to give us and how to never settle for anything other than his best for us.

The family tree of Jesus
"There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.” (Isaiah 11:1) A stump is without hope. Everything involving life has been cut off. The nation of Israel was in the same state when Jesus was born. The once great kingdom of Israel had long since been cut down to a lifeless stump. Yet at an unexpected time, with unexpected people, in unexpected ways, Jesus came from a family tree that appeared to be dead. The family tree of Jesus is found in Matthew 1 and it’s distinctive among ancient genealogies. Typically in the ancient world a family tree would list the members of a family that made the family proud, the kind of people who carried the family name well. Almost always in the ancient world genealogies would exclude women, foreigners, and notorious sinners. Yet in Jesus’ family tree we see all three! In this series we will look at how God takes people who should be cut off, disqualified and without hope and through Jesus He includes, qualifies, and restores life to them.

Standing Out Instead Of Blending In
God designed the church to stand out, not blend in to its surroundings. All too often the indictment people bring against the followers of Jesus is that they don’t act like their leader. That was definitely true for a church that Paul planted in the city of Corinth. It was plagued by sexual immorality, idolatry, lawsuits, and a variety of other worldly behaviors that created confusion among the people who were trying to figure out what it means to be a Christian. In this series we will walk through Paul’s letter to the church in Corinth to gain valuable insight on how Southland can avoid the pressure to blend in when God is inviting us to stand out.

Looking Forward, Looking Back
The 1617 sermon will give us the opportunity as a church family to look back at 2016 and see what God has done through our ministry efforts. And it will give us the chance to look forward to 2017 and anticipate all that he is going to do through our ministry efforts. The Jewish people had a regular rhythm through annual feasts of looking back and looking forward. It was a yearly reminder that the best way to live is by thanking God for what he has provided and trusting God for what he will provide. New Year's Day will give us a similar opportunity to prioritize faith in God.
