On the First Sunday of each month, the Orangeburg Church of Christ hosts an abbreviated worship service, after which we sing for an extended period of time. On these Sundays, the lessons are shorter than usual sermons. In 2020, these first Sunday lessons are going to focus on passages from the Psalms. This week, we consider a lesson about trust i God from Psalm 4
Psalm 146:6 declares that our God, in whom we put our trust, is a God who keeps faith forever. He is a God who is always faithful and trustworthy. His promises will never come up short. Together, let’s study some of God’s promises, both conditional and unconditional, as well as some things that he didn’t promise.
Our awesome God is one who is never far from us. He is not constrained by space as we are, but is near to us wherever we go, in the good times and the bad.
God’s power is beyond our understanding, and even beyond our imagination. So long as it is consistent with nature and his purposes, there is nothing that God cannot do.
We serve an awesome God! When we stop and we consider just how great our God is, it should leave us in awe, and we should be thankful for who our God is. This morning we begin a series looking at several attributes of our God, and it is our prayer that by the end of it, we’ll have a great appreciation of our God. In this lesson we consider that God is a God who knows. He knows all about us, what we do, what happens to us, and even why it happens. And we should thank him for that.
What a blessing for God’s people to know that He cares for us. Jesus assures us of God’s care in the Sermon on the Mount, and throughout Scripture there are multiple examples of God looking after his people.
A brief review of the previous few weeks of study, considering the evidence for God and where that leaves us with regard to which world religions could possibly be true.
