We have completed our series on the Sermon on the Mount. What a journey! But, like all good joineries, it has come to an end. Moving on.
Tomorrow, we will begin a topical series called: Worry, Worship and the Word of God. This is a topical series that reveals how worry impacts our lives. When worry begins to weigh us down, we will also discover how worshiping our God results in overcoming the oppression of worry in our lives. Finally, we will learn how the Word of God becomes the staying place for our anxious hearts.
Our central passage throughout this series will be 1 Peter 5:5-7, which states: “In the same way, you younger men, be subject to the elders. And all of you clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because ‘God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.’ Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your care on Him, because He cares about you.”
We will pick this passage apart and learn how to allow it to navigate us through seasons of worry.
I love you. I love journeying through the Word of God with you. I count it as one of my greatest joys.
