In the final sermon in this series we learn that to survive the heat you need to seek shelter…but not just any shelter.
When the going gets hot, hang tough regardless!
Survival is about being on the right side…the best side is God’s side!
Surviving the heat requires you to be planted in good soil, with sufficient nutrients and water to sustain you.
How often have we heard “you get what you deserve” but did Jesus actually say this?
Some beliefs in our culture aren’t thought of as beliefs; they are just givens. “In the end, you just need to do what makes you happy” is one of them. But how does that belief stack up against Jesus teaching? Have you bought it?
Faith in Action – trusting in God is not a spectator sport!
When we understand who Christ is and what He has done, what can any other philosophy add? We will learn to use Christ as the filter for all the messages with which we are bombarded.
When you rely on common sense instead of having faith in God’s promises things can go really, really wrong and mistakes are made.
Just how important is God’s word for a life of faith, especially when the going gets tough?
