Last night our Gospel Meeting with Brother Joe Hisle started with an excellent presentation on the nature and attributes of God. We hope you will enjoy this presentation and join us for a night of the meeting.
While reading a chapter of Andreas Kostenberger's new book The First Days of Jesus I came across the following quote:
Wrong expectations are a key source of disillusionment and disappointment. A cynical person might argue that we should never expect anything from anyone in order to avoid being let down. Such an approach to people and God, however, will surely lead to a bitter and lonely life. We need each other, and we need God. What happens, then, when God fails to meet our expectations or to act in the way we thought, hoped, and prayed He would?
May God's people ever be mindful of the fact that pain and evil are the results and consequences of sin. God is not the one to be blamed for evil and suffering; He is the only source of hope for a lost and dying world. May God's children ever hold to His hand and trust in His Word though dark and dreary may be the way knowing that He will "never leave you nor forsake you." (Hebrews 13:5)
This week we take a look at the first four verses of the book and notice how they lay the framework for the rest of the study.
