Pastor Hendrix's farewell sermon for Trinity 13.
Has God forgotten about us? After all, it’s been nearly 2000 years since Jesus lived and died. The Western U.S. is literally on fire. Texas was hit with the worst hurricane and flooding I can remember, and another, potentially worse, is on it’s way to Florida...making landfall as we’re sitting here today. An 8.1 earthquake hit Mexico two days ago. North Korea is preparing to nuke us and our country seems to be falling into a period of turmoil with endless rioting. Has God abandoned us?
In times like this, when people feel they have been abandoned, they tend to take matters into their own hands. Usually, that’s not a good thing. In fact, it puts them in more harm.
But has God abandoned us? Do we think He has? And what happens if we think so? Do we take matters into our own hands? That's exactly what the Galatians did...
