Sermon Notes

Essential: God


Jesus said, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39 NLT)

I pray to you, O Lord. I say, “You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.” (Psalm 142:5 NLT)

God made the world and everything in it. He is Lord of heaven and earth, and he doesn’t live in temples built by human hands. He doesn’t need help from anyone. He gives life, breath, and everything else to all people. From one person God made all nations who live on earth, and he decided when and where every nation would be. God has done all this, so that we will look for him and reach out and find him. He isn’t far from any of us, and “he gives us the power to live, to move, and to be who we are.” As some of your poets have said, “We are his children.” (Acts 17:24-28 CEV)

God is essential because He gives us the power to…

1) Live

2) Move

3) Be who we are
