Use this space to take your general notes during the message.
Have you ever wondered if God is present? It's a common question for many people. What are some of the reasons why people question the idea that God is present in our lives?
Pastor Jonathan traces the journey of God's presence for us; from the Tabernacle to the Temple. From Jesus to the Cross, and finally the Holy Spirit. Read John 1:14. What is the significance of this journey from a place to a person?
David had it right the entire time. Read Psalm 139:7-12. How does this passage illustrate that God is ever-present, everywhere, every moment?
We often focus on Sacred vs. Secular, but perhaps a better question we can ask is, "How is God present in every...?". This is especially important to be asking in the moments and situations where He feels absent.
We doubt and question God's presence. Because we don't "feel" or "see" Him, we assume that He is absent. However, as Pastor Jonathan pointed out, if circumstances and feelings indicate God's presence, it makes God a servant to circumstances and feelings. The truth is that God's presence does not always look or feel perfect, happy, or peaceful. How does the Cross illustrate this?
What circumstances and situations in your own life have you found yourself questioning the presence of God? Take some time and have a conversation with our Heavenly Father about all of the things that have you questioning His presence.
