Again dear saints, I am publishing my study notes from yesterday's sermon. It is my prayer that you are reviewing the message as a means of growing this week. These, as usual, are merely an outline and a set of prompts to remind myself of what it is I should say in the worship service.
We start with blessedness, despite the conflicts of sin all around us.
This world has many delights. But they all can be so much better when our heart is centered on God. Thankfulness is one of the most blessed attitudes. The fruits of the spirit describe the joy a person has when they walk stand and sit with God. The world strives for this blessedness, but without God it is all counterfeit.
It is our duty to delight in God.
The Christian that delights themselves in God is like a tree planted by streams of water. This analogy gives us much hope.
