Today we talk a little about how God always comes through but not always according to our expectations or time table. Sometimes when God answers prayer the answer isn’t what we expected. Sometimes the prayer isn’t answer in the way we would have expected.Sometimes the prayer is answered through someone or through a situation we least expected. Sometime the answer to our prayer comes when we least expected.God doesn’t alway answer our prayer according to our expectations or in ways that we would prefer BUT one thing is true …. God answers prayer. I will also share how God has recently answered the prayers of LRC regarding a facility for Sunday worship. We will see that God has given us an answer to our prayers. He is faithful - always has been and always will be. Please listen for the details and be encouraged as God leads us.
"Stop what you're doing and follow me." How would you respond?!?
Looking at how we expect things that are unrealistic.
In the Gospel According to John the Evangelist (or Apostle), John is giving a biographical account in order to lead us in asking a very important question(s). The question is not primarily the one that pop Christianity has purveyed “What Would Jesus Do?” But, rather: “Who is Jesus?” or “What DID Jesus Do?” Truth be told is that people in Jesus’ day had similar expectations like we do, and Jesus didn’t meet them.
Expectations can move you forward or hold you back. Scripture is supposed to lift us up. Lent is about measuring yourself against scripture. What are God's expectations on each of us?
“A Hypocrite! Who, me?” Part 4 – Getting Beyond Performance In Matthew 23 Jesus levels severe criticism at the Pharisees for their performance-based religion. He considers all their effort shallow, meaningless, because all it is is effort. There’s no heart to it. But faith is knowledge, conviction and assurance: it reaches to gut-level, to heart issues. So we ask ourselves how much of my faith is about checklists and performances? Jesus doesn’t want Sunday morning from you, he wants every day. He doesn’t ask ten percent of your time, talents and treasures, he’s Lord over all of it. He doesn’t want religious exercises from you, he wants a relationships. He wants all of you.
