Where is God?
August 3, 2014
The presence of drones in our lives can make us feel uncomfortable and unsure. They see what we thought was secret, and they hear what we thought was hidden.
But drones aren’t the only thing that are everywhere these days.
In this message by Pastor Ed Young, we ask the question, “Where is God?”
And we discover that God’s presence in our lives shouldn’t make us uncomfortable;
it is the one thing that should actually bring us comfort!
What’s up Fellowship Church? Wow, has this been amazing so far? The talent and the giftedness is absolutely stunning. Today we’re gonna talk about drones. Drones seem to be everywhere. You know, a lot of people use them recreationally and it’s making a bunch of people nervous. Others use them for aggression, and on the battlefields are sort of controversial in that realm. They also help us as we fight against the bad guys.
ILLUS: I’d never really come in contact with drones until several weeks ago. I was filming a reality fishing show, which will premier on Destination America this October. I’m not the star of the show, I am though one of the characters. And while I was filming this on the water I heard this sound that kinda sounded like a bunch of bees. <zzzzzz sound effect> And I looked to my left and sure enough the camera boat had launched a drone. The drone was behind me while I fished. On top of me, it seemed, above me, in front of me, taking still shots and also video. So while I was fishing and filming and having everything recorded I thought to myself this would be a pretty cool series. Drones.
What does God know?
August 10, 2014
We live in a world where information is available everywhere. Some call this time the “information age”. Yet, with every piece of data that is available to us, our knowledge pales in comparison to what can be known.
In this message, Pastor Ed Young asks the question, “What does God know?” And as we learn the answer, we discover how God’s omniscience can lead us to a life of purpose, direction, and eternal hope.
Well good morning this morning. How are you guys doing? Welcome to Fellowship Church. We’re one church in many locations. You know, this past summer I had an opportunity to film a reality fishing show. It’ll debut on the channel Destination America in October. You can Google it: Silverkingstv.com I’m not the main star of the show. I am, however, one of the personalities. And for the first time in my life while I was filming this show I saw drones. In fact, the camera boat used drones extensively throughout this shoot. And the drones seemed to be behind me, above me, in front of me, capturing different images and recording everything we did on the water for two straight weeks.
So as I was out there sort of staring into the water and looking at drones I came up with this series idea. Because drones are everywhere. A lot of people think they’re really powerful and I guess they are. They can gain a lot of information. Well, our great God is present everywhere. There is nowhere where he is not. Not only is God present everywhere, the Scripture says from cover to cover he knows everything. God knows it all. And that’s – wow – something to really consider and contemplate. The Bible also says that God has all power. He’s all powerful. So I thought why not put together this study and call it drones, and talk about the attributes of God. Because most of us don't really understand the nature and the character of God. In fact, I would say that the more deeply we understand the attributes of God, the more we can mature and grow and become the kind of people that God wants us to be. So the question is, who is God?
What Can God Do?
August 17, 2014
Our world is power-hungry. We want it and we crave it. But often, what we seek is just a shadow of what true power is.
In this message, Pastor Ed Young helps us see what true, godly power is. And he helps us discover how God’s eternal power can lead us all to experience life-changing power for ourselves.
Well good morning! I can’t believe you guys came to church today. Give yourselves a round of applause just for showing up on this flash flood, crazy, rainy day. Now give me a round of applause for being here. I almost didn’t show up myself.
ILLUS: One night I walked outside in our driveway and as I was looking I saw a giant bug walk across the cement. He was just making his way across our driveway and he had an attitude. The closer I looked at him I recognized the species. It was an emperor beetle, I mean a big one. You could see the biceps and the triceps of this bug. He was like walking with swagger, all of his legs moving in cadence.
So I just got down and I looked at this bug eyeball to eyeball. He probably had 400 eyes but I’m looking at him and I’m saying to myself, this bug is going to walk right in my face. He’s not going to move. He’s not veering to the right, to the left. This bug has a serious, serious attitude.
Drones are everywhere these days. They circle high in the sky, and hover over the seas. Their purpose is to monitor our movement and keep an account of our activity. But do drones catch it all? Or can we have clandestine meetings and closed-door conversations that are never discovered?
In this series by Pastor Ed Young, we discover the truth about some of God’s most amazing attributes. Ed will look at some tough questions like, “Where is God?” “What does God know?” and “What can God do?” And he unpacks the truth that no matter where we are or what we are doing, God is right there with us to help us through.
