Glory Thieves

As God’s children we were created to live for the glory of God. But sin corrupted the original design, and now instead of living for the glory of God, we try to steal that glory for ourselves. This series will look at several Old Testament personalities who took credit for what only God could do and then challenge each of us to consider how we might be robbing God of his Glory.

As you strive to apply and live out a faith of action, consider these three questions in response to the morning message:

  • Why and how do you struggle with this in your own life?
  • How are you already living this out in big or small ways?
  • In addition to prayer, what is one thing you can do to start growing in this area?



FAITH IN ACTION: Mission India Relief Project

In the face of COVID-19, the Prime Minister of India has shut down the country, leaving those who live hand-to-mouth (80+ million people) in a place of hunger and desperation- a literal life or death matter. In this time of need, God has provided a wide-open door to sharing the good news in India and Orchard Hill Church is saying “Yes!” to running through it with our partner, Mission India, as they bring food, healthcare, and the truth of Jesus to those very people!

Say “Yes!” with us by:
