God’s promises are great! But sometimes our idea of realizing those promises clashes with God’s. This message considers the conflict that resides when the Kingdom of Heaven clashes with the Kingdom of Man. Which kingdom are you pursuing? NEXT STEPS: - I will reflect on the areas in my life that I have pursued my own desires instead of God’s - I am asking for prayer, as I feel I’m in a discouraging place, where it is hard to seek first the Kingdom of God. - I will use Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer (S.O.A.P) on Matthew 6:25-34.
Looking for Hope in a Troubled World
July 14, 2019 • Pastor Terry Brown
Many of us try to make a difference in our world using a variety of methods. We may be ambassadors for some religion thinking that the answer can be found there. At times we may think we need to march in outrage resisting the power brokers who bring trouble to our world. Some even turn to violence. We may depend on our group of friends to support us and give us a reason for living. At times we turn to political influence in order to restore hope and purpose to our world. But in time we find that only Jesus brings real and lasting hope.
