Park Slope Community Church Monday Morning Sermon Summary
This past Sunday, August 6, the title of my talk was “Giving Up On God”.
For many of us, there have been moments, times, or even seasons when God has not done things the way that we have wanted Him to do things or provided for us what we wanted Him to provide.
As a result of this, we may feel disappointed, bitter, or resentful toward God. We may even feel like giving up on God.
Yet, regardless of our experiences or expectations, there are some ways and areas of our lives where we do actually have to give up on God doing in our lives.
Here are three of areas of our lives where we will need to give up on God.
- Giving Up On God To Supply Something Greater Than Himself To Provide Our Satisfaction 1 Peter 1:13-15 - So think clearly and exercise self-control. Look forward to the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. 14 So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. 15 But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.
- Giving Up On God To Send Something Grander Than Himself To Provide Our Security Proverbs 3:24-26 - 24 You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly. 25 You need not be afraid of sudden disaster or the destruction that comes upon the wicked, 26 for the LORD is your security. He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.
- Giving Up On God To Send Something Greater Than Himself To Provide Our Salvation Acts 4:12 There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”
