God’s Throne, Not Ours

God's power is not limited to our personal holiness. God uses clay pots, dirty vessels, to accomplish His will. Though God does call us to holiness, His power is not limited to our holiness. When we sin, God doesn't say, "Well, I can never use him/her again. I give up!" No! God uses the weak things of the world to confound the mighty. And if you think for a moment that your usefulness to God is dependent on your personal holiness, you are mistaken because then you will never be ready. God desires a church that is full of grace and mercy for the world.

From Series: "Marvelous Fatih"

Take the story of Adam & Eve found in the book of Genesis. In the garden of Eden (aka the good 'ol days of perfection), God told this first couple that the growling of their stomachs could be silenced by the fruit from any tree in the entire garden except the tree of the knowledge of good & evil (Genesis 2). Along comes the enemy (snake that he is) and causes them to doubt what God really told them. Off to the tree of the knowledge of good & evil they go, pluck off an apple and..."Crunch!". A very, very familiar story to many of us because we've heard it and read it so many times. For years. But wait. Was it an apple that they ate on that fateful day? Take a look at Genesis 3 and give it another read. Sometimes it's good to hear stories again. Even those we've heard thousands of times before. We might just see or hear something we have never noticed before. We might just have our faith stirred up in a new way by an old story. Welcome to our new sermon series, Marvelous Faith.
