Sermon Notes – Indy (Faith and Entropy)

Gen 1:1-4 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. NIV

John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness..

Biblically impoverished people live poorly constructed lives.

We are blessed & may we never forget that we are blessed so that we can be a blessing! Gen 12:2. When we cooperate w our assignment from God the world becomes a better place because we are the seed of Abraham. Through Christ we are the expression of God’s blessing in the earth!

Matt 5:48 “..Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you. MSG
