Who Are You Before God?

Welcome to the weekly sermon from Otterbein United Methodist Church, Navarre, Ohio.

Meditation points:

    • Is God sovereign in your life?
    • Can you accept His will?
    • Does His creation cause you awe?

Scripture references, from the NIV:

Job 38:1-7

Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said: “Who is this that obscures my plans   with words without knowledge? Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone— while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy? 

Mark 10:41-45

41 When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John. 42 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
