About God's Will

Charlie Boyd - 7/10/2016

We are in our series called Join the Conversation: Part 2. The first installment was aimed at engaging with those who may have some strong skepticism towards Christianity, people who might get frazzled at how some Christians think about hell, homosexuality, science, and so on. We encourage you to go listen to, watch, and share those previous sermons at our web site. This installment has a slightly different focus: Christians in dialogue with other Christians over ‘tougher questions’ that are often misunderstood or interpreted differently. The purpose of this series is not to answer every single question, but to help you see the value of these discussions and then take part in them. In this message, we ask ourselves, “How do we discern God’s will when making a decision?” The Book of Ruth helps us to see that in the midst of normal, everyday circumstances, God is moving his “big picture story” forward to accomplish his work of salvation for the whole world. Ruth’s story gives us a pattern to live by in making decisions, and when we live our lives with open hands of trust and obedience to God, we can’t make a mistake.
