Here is a outline for part two this weekends message called “I Can’t See God.”
I am going to look at how Christianity in America is so closely related to T-Ball in America.
As well, we will revisit the story of the old testemant body builder Samson – should be fun 🙂
I CAN’T SEE GOD BECAUSE I’M IN THE WAY
If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed. Proverbs 29:18 ( message)
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; Ecclesiastes 3:11 (niv)
The Promise and the Paradox
I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly John 10:9,10
2. KEEP FAILING at the Christian Life
3. FAKE the Christian life.
ARE YOU LIKE SAMSON….JUST NOT AS BUFF?
And the Spirit of the LORD began to move him at times Judges 13:25 (kjv)
Then she cried out, “Samson! The Philistines have come to capture you!” When he woke up, he thought, “I will do as before and shake myself free.” But he didn’t realize the Lord had left him. Judges 16:20
Then the Philistines took him and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza. They bound him with bronze fetters, and he became a grinder in the prison. Judges 16:21 (nkjv)
1. HE LOST HIS POWER.
2. HE LOST HIS VISION.
3. LIFE FOR HIM WAS A GRIND.
