Sermon: “Whom Shall we Fear?”
Theme: In the midst of the storms we face we need to keep our hearts aligned with the knowledge of God so as to not become overwhelmed.
Purpose: We will examine our ways of dealing with fears and anxiety.
Scriptures: Psalm 28 A call to God for salvation, a promise that God will be the security for the people.
Matthew 8:23-27 Jesus stills the storm by rebuking the waves, the disciples are in awe of Jesus’ authority.
Why is it that we think of prayer as a last resort in the midst of trouble rather than as a practice to be aligned with God’s word and instruction? What role does prayer play in shaping our minds so that we may be confident and wise in our actions? How do we develop the ability to focus on what is most important when things are chaotic? How are storms to be understood in a Christian’s life? If we expect there to be times when things are out of control, how do we live faithfully and prepare ourselves?
