Malachi: Confronting Complacency in Marriage, Money and Ministry
Michael Turner • Sermon • • 18 views
Unless we return to a true fear of God, the church nor the country will improve or honor God again.
Life can be scary. Multiple times in the Bible though, God tells us to "Fear Not". This isn't because there isn't something to be afraid of, but because God is greater than all our fears. When we are faced with two fears, the thing we are scared of more is the fear that will dominate our lives. What if the thing that we feared the most was God, and therefore had no reason to fear any other fear.

Be careful and don’t gripe at God about the confusing times. God alone saves. Your mouth cannot save you. Money cannot save you. God alone provides. Therefore, fear God, and be thankful for the life He has given you.
God provides us with everything that we need to support this body and life. We confess this in the Small Catechism: I believe that God has made me and all creatures; that He has given me my body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my members, my reason and all my senses, and still takes care of them. He also…
