The God Who Whispers

30430ce6e5d6811b519b43c4f2fdf005The story of Elijah continues.

In the video I mention three contrasting pairs that help us work through the lesson. They are:

-Transcendence/Immanence

-Discouragement/Trust

-The Big/The Little

I hope these three help you understand and teach the lesson this week. I also quote from Milton Vincent’s, The Gospel Primer, in the video. The quote I use follows:

More than anything else could ever do, the gospel enables me to embrace my tribulations and thereby position myself to gain full benefit from them. For the gospel is the one great permanent circumstance in which I live and move; and every hardship in my life is allowed by God only because it serves His gospel purposes in me. When I view my circumstances in this light, I realize that the gospel is not just one piece of good news that fits into my life somewhere among all the bad. I realize instead that the gospel makes genuinely good news out of every other aspect of my life, including my severest trials. The good news about my trials is that God is forcing them to bow to his gospel purposes and do good unto me by improving my character and making me more conformed to the image of Christ.
