sermon scraps: 2

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge Him,

and He will make your paths straight.

Prov. 3:5-6

 

There’s nothing inside of you that can lead you to a living, active trust in Christ. It has to be the work of God to bring you to acknowledge Him — to a deep, personal, intimate knowing.

Trust: an active reliance and confidence on the promises of God.

Heart: moral behavior and character, not emotions.

Hoping in all God is, who He is, what He’s called us to, in active trust.
