The Answer We Don’t Want

Job 38:1-3 Our arrogance leads us to want answers. We must accept God’s wisdom “like a man.” How will we answer the questions God has for us? Job 38:4-7 Where were we when He created everything? Our view of God is limited to our short life. Job 38:12-27;39:1-4 Do we know how God established everything? Our view of the world is limited to our little piece of it. Our view of life is limited to human life. Job 40:1-14 Will…

Forced Preparation

Job 33-37 Sermon Big Idea:  The pain Job is suffering and that you and I suffer is to purify our life, not punish our life. Why is this happening? Options we consider: God’s wrath Satan’s temptation God’s testing Our fallen world Who is this 4th friend? Should we lump Elihu in with Job’s friends?

Standing Tall

Sermon Scripture:  James 5:7-12 Sermon Big Idea:  When we are 100% confident in what lies ahead, we can wait and prepare more thoroughly. Wait with a prophet’s patience. Moses was 80 when called – Acts 7 Moses was 120 when he died Moses’ hope and inheritance were after he died Wait with a prophet’s heart. David called a prophet in Acts 2:30 David was a man after God’s own heart – 1 Samuel 13:14 Fulfill God’s Will – Acts 13:22…

A Revolving Gospel

Intro:  2.3 billion square feet of storage rental space.  A $38 billion business. Grows 7.7% annually since 2012.  What it represents is our inability to get rid of stuff and stuff out of circulation. Hoarded riches are God’s blessings out of commission. (v. 1-3) When stuff sits long enough it collects dust. Matthew 6:19-21 What is your heart toward stuff? Hoarded riches lead to oppression and paranoia. (v. 4) What is fair?  Matthew 20 We like to keep people in…

Live with Anticipation

Sermon Scripture:  James 4 Big Idea:  When we are jealous of others, we judge others.  And instead of being excited about what God will do, we make our own plans. Being someone else means we don’t have you. (v. 1-10) Lucy and Aslan in “Voyage of the Dawntreader” – Proverbs 14:30 “I have never been jealous. Not even when my dad finished fifth grade a year before I did.” – Jeff Foxworthy Don’t mistake judging for loving. (v. 11-12) A…

The Tail doesn’t wag the human

Sermon Scripture:  James 3 Sermon Big Idea:  Great and awful things are done with the tongue.  But, the tongue is the tool, the speaker is the culprit. Becoming a teacher comes with strict judgment. A restless tongue leads to a reckless life. The operator, not the tool, seeks wisdom. While we shouldn’t all become teachers, we should all desire to become teachers.
