The “Hands On” God


When people talk about God’s involvement in the history of the human race they often describe him as rather “hands off” in his approach. Their view is that probably the Almighty had something to do with the beginning of everything, but once he got things started, stepped back and is now a casual observer of the human drama. 

Even the most superficial reading of the early chapters of the Bible dispels any notion that God is disinterested in what is going on in this world. Instead we find he is passionately involved in the minutest details of human life. While that tells us much about God, it should lead us to want to understand even more what God’s active participation in our existence means to us!

This coming weekend we’ll be starting a six week sermon series during which we’ll be studying how God revealed himself during the Old Testament and what affect it had on people. It will be fascinating, at times bewildering but always encouraging. God was most definitely “hands on” thousands of years ago and he continues to be today. And that is ultimately our greatest hope. For if we were on our own…well…the implications of such a tragedy are too terrifying to contemplate.

Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
