"To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.” (Psalm 25:1)
The problem with living in our bodies is that we can forget that we are MORE than just those bodies. Genesis tells us that when God breathed life into us, we became living souls. (See Genesis 2:7)
If we, as the household of God here at Eastland, can embrace our place as children of God, made in His image, we can truly equip ourselves to start fighting battles which really matter. When we see souls, our marriages improve, our parenting takes a more urgent focus, and our interactions with friends and enemies alike change in the context of eternity.
Satan wants us to think short-term. God made you with eternity set in your heart. It's time to feed our souls what bread alone can't fill.
Throughout this year, we will be focusing our sermons, songs, worship, classes, and our daily Bible readings on what our souls need. Each quarter will build on the last with the goal of seeing ourselves as souls, seeing others as souls, and approaching life with eternity in view.
Be prepared to participate, anticipate growing individually, pray for the success of the Eastland family, and mark your calendars! Let's share this journey together as a family.
