Do you remember the prayer that many of us learned as little kids?
God is great, God is good.
Let us thank Him for our food.
By His hands, we are fed,
Thank you, Lord, for daily bread.
Maybe you've never heard it before. Maybe you've said it more times than you care to think about. So many times, perhaps, that you've missed how awesome the opening line is. "God is great, God is good." Does it get any better than that? If you tried to come up with a more simple definition of who God is, you couldn't.
Each school year, we like to start off with a series that touches on the most basic premises of our faith. Last year, we opened with "What It's All About," where we covered some of the biggest concepts about being a Christian. This year, we're diving a little deeper into the person of God. If I could help someone understand only two things about God, it would be these two: that He is great, and that He is good. That He is all-powerful, and all-loving. He is all-knowing, and still gracious. That He there is nothing outside of His power, and no one outside of His love. That He is infinitely massive, and cares deeply about every intricate detail of our lives.
Most of the time, we use a curriculum for our messages, but this series is hand-crafted. We are so excited to join in this conversation with our students and hear how the Almighty God has touched their lives in an intimate way. Join us on Sunday mornings each week and at Roots Sunday Night September 7!
