Follow along with the latest message from The Orchard
Today we begin our annual messages series, The Big Screen! Every July we enjoy all the fun that comes with movies, music, games and more! The sole reason is so that we can invite family and friends to come hear the message of the gospel. Movies are something that just about everyone enjoys. Each year we find movies that give us a platform to share the love God has for all humanity. Most of the movies are familiar to us. But it really isn't about the movies at all! It is always about the message we have of hope and love and forgiveness found in the story of Jesus. See, what makes these movies so great has less to do with the movie and more to do with the themes that so often run through them, themes that they may not even realize are in the movies…
Big Idea: We can try to create our own contentment or find it in Jesus.
Scripture: Philppians 3: 7-11
7But everything that was a gain to me, I have considered to be a loss because of Christ. 8More than that, I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Because of him I have suffered the loss of all things and consider them as dung, so that I may gain Christ 9and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own from the law, but one that is through faith in Christ — the righteousness from God based on faith. 10My goal is to know him and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings, being conformed to his death, 11assuming that I will somehow reach the resurrection from among the dead.

The Take-Away: Don’t let your discontentment with life keep you from finding contentment in Jesus.
