Is it an indefinable place where the present and future collide? Or is it the second just before the point of no return? Is it the moment you realize that what you do next matters most? Or is the culmination of collected experiences that caution you to avoid pain at all costs? Did you choose it? Or did it choose you? 

Regardless of where it is, what it looks like, or when it happens, we have all been there. Some of us are there right now — on the verge of something big.

In this four-part sermon series, On the Verge: Taking the Right Step Forward, we’ll examine these moments right before our lives change and how we can look to the stories of the Israelites for understanding how God wants us to view these crucial times as we go through our lives. 

God is calling us to a life of trust and faith: where we may not understand the full measure of where we’re going or what we’re doing. But His ways are good and right for us, and we can know He will be with us every step of the way. So, let us stand on our tiptoes and boldly follow God into the chasm of what is and what could be.
