Series: "The Truth About God" - Week 2 - The Sweet Old Man
Series Big Idea: Too many times we try to create God in our own image. We allow our own misconceptions about God to separate us from Him. In this series we will expose and shread common false images that students often have of God, giving them the true picture of who God really is through Jesus Christ.
This Week's Key Scripture: Revelation 1:8
Understandable Message: This week we shreaded the misconception that God was nothing more than a sweet old man. Michangelo may have painted him as old, however, God is not old but eternal. This subtle misconception packs a dangerous punch. The danger is that we would see God as real but not relevant. That we would see God as present but not powerful. God is not old and distant from the delimas of our day. Rather, God is eternal and ever-aware of the problems that we face in our everyday lives. We looked at the truth about who God really is:
1. God Knows (Jeremiah 1, Psalm 139:2, Matthew 10:29-31, Acts 17:26)
2. God Cares (1 Peter 5:7)
3. God Can (Jeremiah 32:17)
4. God Will (Mark 1:40)
Creative Elements: This week we used excerpts from a hillarous viral video featuring an elderly couple trying to set up their webcam to introduce the message. We also continued to use video to promote our upcoming See You At The Pole After Event next week.
Songs: Amazed (Kutless), For Who You Are, Your Great Name
