Sunday’s Sermon…

June 2, 2008

Yesterday, our pastor began a series on “Hearing God”, with a look at the call of Samuel.  In the sermon, Gordon said that:

1.  God calls us by name

2.  God desires a relationship

3.  God reveals His purpose

We would love to hear your thoughts and questions regarding this message, please leave us a comment!

By the way, if you have questions regarding the evening sermon from Romans 4, you can ask those here as well.

May God richly bless you today and give you a hunger for His word and a desire to know Him more!!

    I noted that Samuel heard from God at a time when a word from the Lord was rare. God calls us by name, but it can seem rare today as then.

    Great question! Samuel knew his purpose from a very young age as did Jesus. The “when” is up to God. Are you asking when a person knows what God’s purpose is for their life?

    The prophetic word was rare then. It is rare for a father or mother not to talk to their children. Today it is is rare for God not to speak to His kids. The problem is that His kids are to busy hear.

    When I got saved my wife asked me how did I know I was sure. I told her I can’t explain it but I just know that I know and my internal life has changed. (Romans 8:16) Its like the (Millionaiare Game) you get asked a question and inside you know it before you say it but you may not remember where you learn it, you just know its right. Another way to know is recieving a word from God though the Bible. You know its right because God said it. His peace fills your heart and mind. You apply your faith and totally trust God no matter what. Question: what do you do if you know God ‘s character and he asked you to do something that seem out of line with His character. EX. when God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son Issac. How would you proceed?

    Share your experiences of hearing from God. Have any of you heard from God and chose not to respond? What happened. How did you feel? When you acted on what God said to you , did it turn out the way you thought it would?

    Yes. Henry Blackaby wrote, in Experiencing God, “if you are not hearing from God you are in trouble at the very heart of your Christian life.”

    yes i am asking when a persons knows what God’s purpose is for their life?

    April, You asked ,”When does a person know what God’s will is for their life”. Another question might be,”Will you do what He reveals”. In Abraham’s case, God’s purpose and plans were far greater than what Abraham could have dreamed. God told Abraham to leave his country and go to a land He would show him. Abraham obeyed and went out. God’s revealed more and more of Himself and His plans throughout Abraham’s life. Our purpose is always linked to God’s purpose.

    Chip, you asked what would you do if you knew God’s character and He asked you to do something that seemed out of character for God. I would ask God for clarification. I would not proceed if what I thought He was asking me to do was contrary to His clearly revealed will…

    Hey Jeff or Gordon,
    I was just curious about this: In 1 Kings 2:21 Adonijah is referred as a brother of King Solomon. Is that in Christ or for real? Leslie

    They are both sons of King David. They were were brothers but from different mothers. They fought for control of the kingdom after David’s death.
    When you say “in Christ” what do you mean? Being “in Christ” (2Cor 5:17) is a NT reality not possible before the resurrection.

    Ok. Thanks! That helps a lot. I don’t know- I guess I was confused.
