The Choice to Trust

Introduction: Over the past two weeks we have considered together two questions in relationship to our Trusting God. We asked; “Do I trust God?” and “Can God trust me?” Trust is a critical factor in every relationship. In our relationship with God through Jesus Christ we will each come to a line of choice. The line represents whether or not we will grow towards our full potential in Christ or move away from Christ. This line of choice and commitment is not a one- time event. Throughout our journey of faith we will continually be brought to this line of commitment. Each decision moves us either closer to God meaning spiritual growth or farther away which is described as shrinking back or even spiritual shipwreck. (Hebrews 10:39; 1 Tim. 1: 19) As we continue to give consideration to our level of trust in God. I want to use an acrostic to help us. We will use the word Trust. T = Take a personal inventory R = Recognize God as your source U = Understand God’s Principles S = Surrender everything to God T = Test God’s Promises

Can God Trust Me?

Introduction: Last Sunday we began to ask the question; “Do I really trust God?” We saw from Proverbs 3 God’s call to trust Him. We can grow in our trust especially during times of adversity and in times of plenty. In Luke 15 Jesus confronts the issue of wrong attitudes towards people. In Luke 16 Jesus deals with wrong attitudes towards wealth. The word mammon means money and /or material possessions. Jesus talked about money in 16 out of 38 recorded parables. One out of every ten verses in the Gospels is about money. The Bible devotes 500 verses to prayer and less than 500 to faith yet it has 2000 verses on money and possessions. From this story of the foolish steward we can see several truths about stewards and applications to help us answer the question; Can God trust me?

Do I Really Trust God?

Introduction: Beginning today and throughout October the focus in our messages will be upon our trust relationship with God. In other words we will look at the heart of our Christian life and experience. Everything God desires for us hinges on the issue of trust. Trust: Our trust in God and His ability to trust us. Our hope, as we consider this topic together, is to see each of us grow in our trust in God and in God’s ability to work through us as His level of trust in us grows. Our hope is to grow in our trust in God individually and equally important in our trust together as the Fairview Family. In this first message we want to ask the question: Do I really trust God? Next week we will consider if God can trust us. In the final two messages we will use God’s Word to look at principles related to our trust relationship with God.
