Summary

What do you believe to be true about God and the Bible? In Sunday’s message, Blake Holmes reminds of three things that never change despite the world around us: The character of God, the Word of God, and the mission of God.

Key Takeaways

  • God remains on His throne. He is sovereign and on His throne. Nothing can change the character of God.
  • How we handle conflict determines what we need from the gospel. How we respond to pain and suffering shows where our hope lies. Every decision we make reveals what we think about God and the world around us.
  • We must take time to remind ourselves daily of who God is. How he has revealed himself to us through scripture.
  • We can’t allow our circumstances to determine our theology.
  • Our world is rapidly changing but our Father who is in heaven does not.
  • Two ways to rest in the character of God: 1. Ask yourself what you learned in the character of God in Scripture? 2. Before you pray, you should stop and remind yourself of the character of God for whom you are privileged to address. Rest in who He is.
  • Society today feels reminiscent of the days of Judges – everyone doing what is right in their own eyes.
  • It is easy for us to veer off course. It is easy to feel discourage when the world is climbing over our shoulders, but God has given us His Word as a fixed position to come back to. Despite the choppiness of waters and craziness around us, His Word never changes.
  • We are challenged to present biblical truth to a world that is upside down.
  • Basic worldview questions: 1. Who we are? 2. What’s gone wrong? 3. What’s the solution? 4. Where are we headed?
  • His mission is to make His glory known to all of creation. The mission of God has been revealed through the totality of Scripture.
  • Wherever you’re going this week, do you see yourself on mission?
  • No matter where you are, if you know Jesus, you have the opportunity to live in such a way that when this world eventually passes away, you will hear the Savior’s words, “Well done good and faithful servant.”
  • Scripture makes it clear of three things. We are to 1. Rest in the character of God, 2. Trust in the Word of God, and 3. Live for the mission of God.

Discussing and Applying the Sermon

  • Can you identify any current changes, reoccurring circumstances, or feelings that tend to leave you feeling unstable or unsure of the character of God?
  • How do you remind yourself of the unchanging qualities of God in midst change? Who in your life can you ask for help to remind you when you forget?
