What is “The 6-4-9”?
It is simply an attempt to help families apply the principles found in Deuteronomy 6:4-9. Namely, love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, and mind. Moses said that this love should be in your heart (not just your head), and naturally that would be demonstrated to our children as we teach them, literally, all the time. By our words and our walk. It’s as if our hearts should be so full of a knowledge and passion for God that we can’t help but spill that into the lives of our family.
Yet, what we find, for a variety of reasons is that so many families struggle to make this a reality. Consequently, causing precious souls to doubt the validity and practicality of the Lords plan. It’s not because our parents haven’t tried, or lack a desire to make it happen. So, what can you do I about it? We can shrug our shoulders, point fingers and watch family after family quietly struggle, falling short of the grace and peace God desperately wants them to experience. Or, we can wrap our hearts around them, take one another by the hand, and trust that the Lord keeps His word. When we ask for help and serve others as we wish to be served, God blesses us in unimaginable ways (Matthew 7:7-12).
All the best,
The 6-4-9 Crew
Boost Week (8/24-8/29)
We’re excited about Boost Week! We know right now is a hectic time as school is starting back up, but we want to provide you with an opportunity to boost your spiritual life as part of The 6-4-9 resources.
There will be daily video lessons, a discussion card, and a special craft to put together as a family. We will have packets available (supplies for making a kite) to pick up Sunday morning after worship. If you don’t feel comfortable coming to the building, we can deliver your packet to you. Shoot a text or make a call to Cory at (512) 627-6672 to setup delivery.
This will be a fun way to take a break from the school week and spend time in God’s word. Everyone is invited to participate!
