Senior Pastor Steve DeWitt challenges us all to look forward to the goal of Christ, instead of looking back to and living under the spiritual things that make us feel overconfident in our relationship with Christ. Teaching from 1 Cor. 10:1-6, he discusses Paul's assessment of Israel to the Corinthians which provides for us Paul's assessment of the Church for our benefit this day.
1 I want you to know, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, 2 and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 3 and all ate the same spiritual food, 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ. 5 Nevertheless, with most of them God was not pleased, for they were overthrown in the wilderness. 6 Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as they did. 1 Corinthians 10:1 — 1 Corinthians 10:6 ESV
