Lent to Easter 2016 (2 of 7) / by David Flowers

Sermon Series:  Living Ink: Learning to Live in God's Story
Sermon Title:  Wherever He Leads I’ll Go (2 of 7)
Scripture Reading:  Exodus 33:1-3, 7, 12-17; Psalm 23:1-6; Matthew 14:22-33

Lent is a 40-day season when the church commemorates the time Jesus spent in solitude, in silence, and fasting in the wilderness. Jesus prepared himself in the wilderness for what the Father had for him in his life and ministry. In this season of wandering and preparation, we are invited to make room for God’s Spirit as we allow him to become the source of our strength and the Lord of our lives. In our Living Ink worship series, we will discover through the Scriptures that God is the Author of a grand narrative—a tale that encompasses all our struggles, pain, joys, and victories. This Author calls us to co-authorship, using our very lives to continue the Kingdom mission and vision of Jesus in a world poised for resurrection.

Once we have entered into God’s story, we learn to live in the grand narrative by allowing the Spirit to lead and guide us. We show our dependency and faith in God when we ask him to go before us, even if it means we must walk through a dark valley or weather the storm. In Wherever He Leads I’ll Go (2 of 7), pastor David calls us to trust in Jesus as our shepherd in good and bad times.
