Christmas Eve Service 5:30 - 6:30 PM

God Stirs the Conscience

March 13, 2022 | Mike Avato

Passage: Genesis 42:1-23

    I got a call from evil last night. Not metaphorically, but literally. I saw a call on my caller id that read, "elvi day." I didn't pick up the call not because I didn't know the caller (for I know "evil" well), but because didn't want to talk to elvi last night. God uses all sorts of things to get through to us. Even "evil" events in our lives. He's been known to use everything from illness to earthquakes. In the case of Joseph's family God used a famine to prompt them to go to the place of repentance. This was done through many means all the while working through their conscience. In the end they found healing, health, reconciliation, peace, blessing, and goodness...to name a few.

    Jesus instituted the Lord's Supper to help bring us to the place of repentance regularly during corporate worship. It is good to come into the house of the Lord especially when we have picked up the call from "elvi." Come receive the grace and forgiveness that we all need.
