This message looks at both the sovereignty of God and the pride of man through the lens of the rise, the fall and the restoration of King Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 4. We examine the foolishness and the effects of replacing God with anything less than God.

The protection against spiritual arrogance is not forgetting who you were before Christ and where you came from.
It is difficult to love people. While there are a variety of things that make this true, one of the more deceptive reasons is something we may not want to hear. What is it? While it seems innocent, and maybe even ludicrous to suggest it, the truth is loving people is difficult because we are so prone to think we are right.
Our time on earth is short and we do not know what tomorrow will bring.
1John 4:8 tells us that God is love. Yet it is a statement that is perhaps often misunderstood and misapplied. God's love actually means that he rejects or hates sin. Ultimately, God will condemn to death all who refuse to repent of their sin and believe in his Son, the Lord Jesus. Yet, for those who believe in the Lord Jesus for salvation they are recreated and renewed by God's Spirit so that they progressively love what God loves and hate what God hates. The confusion regarding God's love and its application is perhaps seen most vividly in what Scripture says about God's relationship to the world. Much of the confusion is tied to a failure to understand how the term "world" is used in Scripture. The term "world" does not just refer to the physical creation or the entire mass of humans in general, but also to the sinful ways of thinking and living embodied by non-Christians. God rejects or hates the latter, has judged it and is in the process of removing it from his creation. If we love God, then, we will love what God loves and hate what God hates. According to John, this means we reject sinful ways of thinking and living and remain obedient to God. John explains in part what this means and why we are able to do it as God's children.
