Join us as we commence a new series, GO. This week Pastor Neli explores the biblical narrative of people settling in Shinar and building a city and tower to make a name for themselves. The key contrast is drawn between constructing self-glorifying monuments and God’s desire for Spirit-empowered movements. Be cautioned against being individuals who talk without substance but instead be encouraged to plan for the future and allow God to shape those plans according to His will. Focus on Spirit-empowered movements rather than creating monuments of personal achievement.
And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the Lord dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. – Genesis 11:6-8 (ESV)
