God gave us five senses: hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch. Which one do you think is the most valuable?
Hopefully, you recognize that this question is invalid. We were made to have all five senses. If one of them is missing, or if one of them tries to do something it is not supposed to do, it just doesn’t work.
Imagine an ear trying to be in charge of the sense of taste. We would all walk around with food in our ears like toddlers in a high chair. Imagine an eye trying to be in charge of the sense of touch. We would call that a black eye.
We need all the senses. And we have the different senses, not to compete with each other, but to complete our ability to make sense of the world around us.
This weekend we will be continuing our series United: In Jesus We Trust. And we are going to see the difference between not working together (spiritual immaturity) and working together (spiritual maturity).
I look forward to worshiping with you this weekend in person or online this Saturday at 5:00pm or Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am.
Sharing Christ’s victory,
