Sermon Notes - December 27
All is Bright: Unplanned Journey - Marty

To trust is to rely on, depend on and put our confidence in someone or something in order to gain a sense of safety, security, peace and hope.

Psalm 62:8
Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.

Romans 5:1-5 (NLT)
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

Rely on Jesus more than ever.

Bloom where you are planted.

A Patient Endurance: Have a longer fuse!

Christ-like Character: Experience the fruit of the Spirit in our life every day.

A hope that doesn’t disappoint: Something to look forward to.

Proverbs 13:12
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.

Psalm 62:8
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.
