Sermon Wrap-up for March 23
So, I have this fear of writing “Sermon Warp-Up” and two weeks ago, I made “March” into “Mach” instead. Oops.
March 23 AM: Over the Sea!
Once you know, you must act:
Serving the Lord
Stop looking for signs
March 23 pm
Strange laws? Hunting and liability laws
Morning Extended Look:
Chapter 1: March 23: Over the Sea!
1.1. Scripture intro
These chapters contain Moses' final words. We should consider these as we move forward into life.
Highway? Use the concept of a major sign telling you where to take an exit and then reminder signs on the path--mileage and motion.
Life and death, blessing and cursing--
For the people of Israel, it was about the Land and the Promise. It was about deliverance from Egyptians and the presence of God in their midst
1.3. Once you know, you must act
Go with a parents see all type of story here.
Heaven and Earth--there is no place away from witnesses.
1.4. Serving the Lord
The first line of covenant living is serving God, and only God, and no other gods.
1.5. Serving Others
The second line of covenant life is service to others.
1.6. Live Righteously
The third aspect of covenant life is just this: live righteously in obedience to God.
Look at the idea of the comprehensive law, that is in our hearts and mouths
Probably worth a mention on those who will wear Scripture or Facebook it but will not live it.
1.7. Stop stalling
Would you join me in ending our procrastination?
We know what needs to be done--you know what needs to be done.
So often, we act like we need to understand a little better, we know but we are afraid to act.
Stop living in fear and stalling.
Stop living in obstinate ways.
1.8. Stop Looking for Signs
And stop procrastinating and covering it up with faith-y- fluffy words. You do not need someone to ascend to heaven or come down (again!) to bring the Word.
You have it.
Do it. God has given you a sign, and He has given you reminders!!
For us, it is about deliverance from sin. It is about protection from eternity and salvation from sin, hell, and our own fallen nature.
