1. We have this hope as an anchor for our soul
There really is a God- deal with it
God came to help the broken
We live full and die empty
Don’t murmur; God sees it all.
2. God really does love us.
3. We have a God who forgives sin and heals sickness.
Jesus was acquainted with sorrow.
We anticipate eternity. This is not all we have
God blots out our transgression for his own sake.
We are worth much more than they (birds and animals)
1 John 1:9
Feels good to be clean
Flood story – rotten hams
Nothing ever indicated this in Bible school
What can wash away my sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus
Forgiveness is necessary
God frees us from sin
God has the inclination and capacity to heal.
God makes all things work together for good.
In the flood of 1993, our church was under water = now we’re able to comfort with what we’ve been comforted; we do disaster relief now.
Put your hope in God.
Walk in submission to him.
He loves us & works all things together for good.
The light at the end of the tunnel is not a train.
2 Cor. 9:8: all grace abound to you so you will have an abundance for
God is no respecter of persons.
He’s beautiful for situation.
Kids, that’s why we’re serving Jesus!
I press on.
De-pressing is when you stop pressing.
Press on – press into God.
