“The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10
Pastor Jonathan made a note that this sermon is not in response to the election. I think this verse is perfect though – don’t replace “the Lord” in the above verse with Trump or Biden. The righteous aren’t called to run to a political figure; we are called to run to the Lord.
I pray you all are doing well! 🙌
Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers’ hands?” And he said, “The one who showed compassion to him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do the same.”
“In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”
I’ve got to hand it to @charlesbillingsley because I can imagine being asked to preach about moral relativism has got to be a challenging call in multiple realms. I thought he handled it with all the knowledge, grace, and humor that he brings to every sermon. The only problem I had with this sermon is the same problem I have with all of Charles’ sermons; there’s just simply not enough space on this iPad to capture all the quotes, history, and lessons he packs into each sermon. I’d have to start working at poster size! 😅 Thank you Charles and @thomasroad ! 🙌
Lovers of things – Lovers of self
We know this god all too well; the one that tells us we can have whatever we want, we can do whatever we want, and we can be whatever we want. A lover of all things is a lover of none and God’s plan decidedly instructs us to not be a lover of self. There’s a lot to unpack with this one! 🙌
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent… Acts 17:30
I could go on and on about idols and the things we turn into idols but I think Pastor Jonathan sums it up pretty succinctly here. The thing we create are not our gods and are not worthy or worship. We must remain vigilant in remembering that. Great preaching at @thomasroad !
