A Congregation of Conservative Evangelical Christians

SERMON: July 5, 2015 “It is what it is!” NO, IT IS NOT!

Today Pastor Dave spoke on the well known saying “it is what it is!”  and challenged us with “No, it is not!”  The world today is saying, “it is what it is”, and we are buying into a belief that is promoting “helplessness” in our culture.  People are sinking into a pit of despair because the evil one is calming that we cannot change anything – ourselves, our environment, our situation, our ANYTHING!  But that is a plain out and out lie!  But first and most importantly, we need to start looking at things from a ‘Godly perspective’ and not a worldly one.  Once we fix our eyes on what is unseen (2 Corinthians 4:16-18) and realize that faith is about what we don’t see (Hebrews 11:1-3) and surrender our will to God, then we can do great things.

“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary.  To one without faith, no explanation is possible.”  Thomas Aquinas
