Wisdom Trusts God
August 30, 2015 Speaker: Dr. David Silvernail Series: Wisdom for Life - A Series in the Book of Proverbs
Well, this week we’re looking at the non-controversial topic of trusting God. Almost all Christians agree (there’s always the exception – you know that guy) that trusting God is a good thing. Almost all Christians agree that we should be trusting God. And almost all Christians (there’s probably an exception here too, though I haven’t met him or her yet) agree that we regularly and repeated fail to trust God. Why does trusting God sound so easy and yet prove to be so hard? In large part, it’s ease or difficulty depends on what we’re trusting God for. So we’re going to look at a few areas in life where it’s hard to trust God. Wondering what those areas are? Send me your suggestions! And then come Sunday to hear and learn about trusting God in the hard things.
This Sunday we’re wrapping up our summer series in the Book of Proverbs and how Proverbs gives us #WisdomforLife. Next Sunday we’ll be starting a new series on the Book of Exodus which I’ve entitled, “The Glory of the Lord.” Exodus is a fascinating story of how God reveals Himself to His people, even when His people don’t want Him to. Should be interesting.
Additionally, we’re also wrapping up our summer Sunday School series on 1 & 2 Peter. Next Sunday we’ll start two new adult classes — the Bible class will be on 1 & 2 Thessalonians and the second class will be on “Growing as a Christian – Growing in Faith.” I think both classes will be highly profitable and I’m really encouraging you to make the commitment to attend one of them. Rev. Dorst will be teaching a Communicant’s Class this fall (primarily Middle Schoolers) and I’ll be taking one of my every-four-years adventures with the High School Class (always entertaining!). Let’s end the summer strong and start the fall with a bang. See you Sunday, Dr. Dave
P.S. I hope you’re planning on being at the Labor Day Picnic next Sunday. Always a great time!
