"Knowing God - An Introduction"
I was a little scatter-brained as I began this Sunday evening sermon but eventually settled down to show the wonder of God, the fact that we were made to enjoy Him and some specifics on how we can come to enjoy Him.
St. Augustine once said of God, "You have formed us for Yourself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in You."
That is so true. The greatest joy the human heart can know comes from encountering its God.
But, to enjoy God, we must first know Him. Unfortunately, too many Christians don't study their Bibles and so their knowledge of God is sadly incomplete.
This sermon points out the disparity of the knowledge of God among Jesus-followers. It further notes that God is worth the struggle and then ends with some ways that we can come to know and enjoy Him.
This is the first in a series of sermons on "Knowing God" and was preached at Westside Baptist Church in Murray, Kentucky on Sunday evening, September 15, 2014.
