    « Sunday Sermon Recap - August 7 »

    Good Wednesday to you.

     

    This past Sunday Brady Rentz (Chaplain, USN) took us on a “Tour de Psalm 90” as he made comparisons between the recently completed Tour de France and our own “Tour de Life.” His question to us was, “What should be our response in our times of exhaustion and times of distress?” Chaplain Rentz suggested the following ‘riding’ strategy:

     

    1. Trust God’s perspective because of who he is. God is our help and our refuge. God has rescued us before and will rescue us again.
    2. Express our heart to God. There may be times of emotional exhaustion during which we feel God is angry at us: he’s not. God knows us as we really are – and that should be a comfort for us to know. As we persevere, God provides restoration.
    3. Remember that God is present in difficult times. It’s appropriate to ask God to “turn back” – to take away the difficult situation. We experience a new kind of rejoicing when God changes his mind.

     

    The challenge? Don’t pull over to the side of the road and say, “I’m done.” Instead, remember that we have been created in the image of God (imago Dei). And, therefore, we bear his likeness (will, mind, emotion) and we represent him – in good times and in bad times. His work needs to be our work: to know him and make him known and to help other ‘riders’ when we are able. And, as we do, “May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us” (v. 17).

     

    Next Sunday the Reverend Dr. Nate Landis is our guest preacher. Nate is the president and founder of Urban Youth Collaborative (UYC) and is no stranger to Graham.

     

    For Chaplain Rentz and the Reverend Dr. Nate Landis and Pastor David…

     

    Grace and peace,
