This week's Sermon: "Use Your Desires" (Proverbs 3:5-8)

Desire works itself out in the context of relationship. So much of what we desire is directly related to our interactions with others. Our perceptions of what we need or want are not created in a vacuum. Desire is heavily influenced by your context. If we are going to use our desire in the right way we need healthy relationships. And God wants you to use your desire. God does not want you to diminish your desire. God wants you to increase your desire and set your desire on the right things. That is why God gave us wisdom literature, like Ecclesiastes and Proverbs. Wisdom orders our desire.
.
Main Idea: Use your desires.

Question #24: Why was it necessary for Christ, the Redeemer, to die?
 
Answer: Since death is the punishment for sin, Christ died willingly in our place to deliver us from the power and penalty of sin and bring us back to God. By his substitutionary atoning death, he alone redeems us from hell and gains for us the forgiveness of sins, righteousness, everlasting life.
