Sermons about Trust
Have you ever wondered why a prostitute is listed as an example of godly faith? How could a woman whose life revolved around sin teach us about having faith in God? Rahab risked it all on trusting God....shouldn't we?
I.D. – Attitude April 7, 2013 Text: Philippians 2:1-11; Romans 8:31-34; Hebrews 11:1,6 Key Thought: A Christ-like attitude comes from faith in God, and brings security, humility and confident hope. Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Philippians 2:3-5, NLT
The safest place to be is in the Father’s hands. The redeemed have access to God. Creation will be set free. Physical bodies will be glorified. Repentant people can be changed. Unrepentant people can be hardened.
Jesus was not simply a passive victim delivered into human hands, but one who made a choice to trust in the hands of his Father.
In the pages of Scripture, we find God's unfolding story. It began with Creation, God's world as it should be. It continues with the Fall, God's world broken by humanity's sin. The final chapter is Re-Creation, God's world restored through the risen Christ. In this sermon, we take a look at God's story in God's own words. Then, we look at how Christ's resurrection guarantees that God is bring His story to its intended close. For, God is creating a new humanity in the risen Christ. And, in the end, the risen Christ will restore the created order that was ruined by the Fall, in which God the Father will be over all. So, live in light of God's story! Realize that God is in control as He brings HIStory to its goal. Christ's resurrection guarantees it. This is good news for broken, fallen people like us. For, God does not throw us on the trash heap. Instead, He has shown Himself to be a re-creating God, not only with respect to human history, but in individual lives, as well. He can do the same in your life, too. So, trust in Him while you wait for Him.
