8|10|2022 At the Crossroads: Broken and Battered

<<First Name>>
“Why should my face not look sad when the city… lies in ruins…” - Nehemiah 2:3b

We all encounter crossroads in life - moments in which we must choose which direction we will go.  We find them in a crisis or when we encounter something unexpected.  We face them when we are feeling overwhelmed and the stress is more than we can handle. Sometimes we come to them after a loss like the end of a relationship or the grief of a friend.  Or maybe we are wrestling with a conflict whether it is external or internal.  They can even be positive, like a new opportunity or adventure ahead. Whatever the crossroads is, we must make a decision.  But the path we choose determines where we will end up.  Will we shrink back in the face of a challenge?  Will we choose an easy path?  Will we run away?  Or will we choose a path of faith?  

At the Crossroads is a series meant to help us bring faith to those crossroads we encounter.  Since the beginning, Crossroads church has sought to meet people at those intersections where faith and life meet.  Bringing faith to the crossroads we face not only helps us in the moment, but helps us choose a path that leads to the life God intended for us.  

This week we kick off a new series from the book of Nehemiah, looking at how our faith can guide us through the crossroads.  As Nehemiah serves the king, he hears of the condition of Jerusalem.  While some people had returned to the land of Judah and rebuilt the temple, the city was still broken and battered, for its walls lay in ruins.  For decades, the people had lived in this broken and battered state.  But Nehemiah came to call the people together, to pick up the pieces of their lives and live into the promises of God, as God’s chosen people, set apart for him.  

No matter the crossroads you might face, we invite you to join us this month as we dive into the story of Nehemiah and apply it to our own lives.

In Christ’s Service,

Pastor Gordon
