God Is ___! So Heaven Will Be ____...

07.08.16 | by Alan Giles

    I wanted to take a minute to introduce our upcoming sermon series to you. It is a subject that some of you have requested, I have poured many hours into studying for and I am very excited about. 

    It is a series that has moved me to tears, worship and exuberance as I have studied for it.

    This is a set of studies that have propelled me closer to God, given me new eyes for life and a new heart for ministry. It is a series that we will call:

    God Is ____! So Heaven Will Be _____…

    Over these 10 weeks we will begin each sermon by looking at an Attribute of God. Some of these, I am sure you have studied before but some might be new to you. However, every week we will allow this attribute of God to pull the curtain back and give us a glimpse into Heaven! 

    This week, we will begin by seeing that: 

    “God is Holy! So Heaven Will Be Free of Sin…”

    I would really encourage you to take some time this week to think about, read about and reflect on the Holiness of God.

    Read Isaiah 6Hosea 11, and 1 Samuel 2.

    Read Genesis 3 again and look what happened when Sin entered God’s perfect creation.

    Then read Revelation 21 & 22 and see what life will begin to look like once the curse is lifted.

    If you still have time, then maybe do some digging for good articles on the Holiness of God.

    Here is one to get you started…

    My prayer in all of this is simply that you will see God with new eyes, know Him with a cleared mind and worship Him with a renewed heart. 

    Here is what the Series will entail:

    Week 1: God is Holy! So Heaven Will Be Sin Free...

    Week 2: God is a Personal God! In Heaven We Will Be With Him...

    Week 3: God is Triune! So Heaven Will Be Community...
