Last week in “We Need a Bigger Boat” we discovered that there truly is a shark in the water of our culture today. Many never realized it or thought of it that way, but as we found out, just because you don’t see the shark, it doesn’t mean that it is not out there below the surface. Today, we take the next step and find out that although there is a shark in the water, the call of God is not to run (or swim) away, instead – it is to go on a shark hunt. So today we make some discoveries that will give us the freedom to declare that “Life is Jaw-some”
There is nothing as terrifying as being neck deep in the ocean when someone yells “Shark!” You realize that in the water the shark can out maneuver you and you are consumed with the thought of how to get where it is safe. Being chased by a shark is not fun, watching a shark can be… you get the idea. Today, we begin a brand new series entitled “We Need a Bigger Boat” based upon that memorable line from the ultimate summer beach movie – Jaws. Against the backdrop of the ocean, we are going to take a deep dive into the Word of God and discover some frightening parallels between some of the things we find in the Bible and the culture we live in today. Get ready for a bit of mystery, a bit of history, a bit of encouragement, and a challenge or two as we set sail on an adventure like none we have been on before….
