Instructions in the Scriptures to "deny yourself, take up your cross daily" make no sense except for God. "Unless a man hate his father and mother, brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple" is a bold and unimaginably difficult statement by Jesus pertaining to the required life of the disciple, except for God.
All the same, these are required choices for the disciple. The choice to love God supremely and to love others sacrificially are non-negotiable. So...how can we simply accept this life calling " by faith?” The answer...is "but God." For every objection..."but God." For every desire to push back..."but God." for every uncertain moment..."but God."
In this 4-part series, pastor Chris teaches on the four key attributes of God that make the step of faith for the follower, not only possible but practical.
In this week’s message pastor shares about the Omnipresence of God…that is…the fact that all of God is everywhere at the exact same time. No matter your circumstance, whether in triumph or challenge, in good times or in the clutches of the darkest and most evil of circumstances, God is not absent. He knows and sees…because He is there.
