SERMON: July 24th, 2016 “When did it all Change?”
Pastor Dave challenged us with the question “When did it all change?” Meaning, when did we lose that childlike faith that we saw this week from the kids at VBS? When did we lose the concept that God loves us; when the children this week just accepted this as fact, and we as adults have moved to a need for a 5-point sermon to explain God’s love. The verse today is from the Message: Matthew 18:2-5 “ For an answer Jesus called over a child, whom he stood in the middle of the room, and said, “I’m telling you, once and for all, that unless you return to square one and start over like children, you’re not even going to get a look at the kingdom, let alone get in. Whoever becomes simple and elemental again, like this child, will rank high in God’s kingdom. What’s more, when you receive the childlike on my account, it’s the same as receiving me.” We need to simply take God at His Word and be like sponges once again to draw what God wants for us to take in.
