Our final study within the Deeper Waters series focuses on the often neglected practice of celebration. Throughout Scripture, including the Old Testament festivals and the New Testament encouragement to live day-to-day lives of joy, we find that the people of God are called to be rooted deeply in celebration and joy. As those blessed with the goodness of God through Christ, Christians should throw some of the best parties! Listen in as we discuss ways to allow our lives to be shaped by celebration.
Most Christians believe that our lives after conversion should be different. Most of us deeply desire for our lives to look, feel and be different. We want to grow in change in ways that are glorifying to God and helpful to the growth of the Kingdom of Jesus. In the sermon series Deeper Waters, we will be looking at the spiritual practices found in the classic Christian book Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster. It is through these practices that we can become more deeply formed in the character of Christ through the power of the Spirit. God does not want us to spend our entire lives walking in the “shallow end” or splashing in the “kiddie pool.” He invites us into the Deeper Waters of knowing and experiencing him.
