Five Things


5Sunday evening I presented an old sermon. When I say old sermon, I mean  old.  I heard it when I was a teenager and the preacher that day said he heard it when he was young.  I do not know who first preached this lesson, but they deserve a “thank you.” I adapted this lesson from my memory of the lesson I heard as a teen and shared it with the folks at Central. The sermon is about five things.  Five things God does not know.

I know, I know what you are thinking.  I know that in Psalm 139:7-12 the psalmist demonstrates that God is omnipresent and always knows where we go. I know that Jesus says in Matthew 6 that God knows our needs before we ask.  I know God knows the number of hairs on our head (Matthew 10:30) – insert bald jokes here. I know that God knows our heart (Acts 15:8) and He knows those that are His (2 Timothy 2:19). I know we normally say that God knows everything, but does He?  I can think of five things God does not know.

  1. God does not know a sin He does not hate. (Proverbs 6:16-20)
  2. God does not know a sinner He does not love. (Luke 7:34)
  3. God does not know a sinner He does not want to save. (2 Peter 3:9)
  4. God does not know a better way to save mankind than His way. (John 14:6, Rom 1:16)
  5. God does not know a better time to commit to Him than now! (Heb 3:7-15)

I would love the opportunity to talk with you more about God’s love for you and His desire to save you from wrath.
