Sermon Notes

I'm a note taker.  It helps to keep me focused.  Usually, I take my notes, star the scriptures I want to remember, and then file the notes in a little notebook in my desk.  Today I thought I'd share these notes with you.  Don't worry, it will be quick.

Today we had a guest speaker, Dr. Terry Brensinger.  The scripture was Isaiah, 31:1-3.  Isaiah 31:1 is the one I really want to remember and it summed up the entire sermon.  Here it is:

Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!

Here's the deal, men disappoint, and die.  Houses crumble.  The weather fluctuates.  The only steady thing...the only thing we can count on...is the Lord.  Dr. Terry said it better than me when he said,

"Pyramids crumble

and pharoahs pass away,

but God stands firm forever."
