The Unknown God part 1

December 3, 2022

We open the book of Acts once again on today’s broadcast, and we’ve been observing the early Christians and the establishment of the Church. Among the many people we encounter in Acts, is the Apostle Paul. As we give attention to chapter seventeen today, we’ll take a look at Paul’s time in the city of Athens and, as we do, we’ll t take notice of how similar that ancient city was to modern day America.

References: Acts 17:10

Let’s consider a question, as we begin today - is there a specific “right way” to live as a Christian? Are there a set of hard and fast rules we must follow? Is there a checklist we need to go down every day? Well, that kind of attitude gets us dangerously close to legalism, but there is a way we should be living, as believers in Jesus Christ.

Today we continue our series through the Psalms. So many of these chapters are purely praise for our wonderful creator, and Psalm 106. There are so many reasons why we should be praising God every day and every minute. He is merciful, He is loving and He is righteous. Those are just three examples! Psalm 106 is a “Hallelujah Psalm”, and so, I urge to be ready to do some old fashioned praising today!

Today on the Dwelling Place, pastor Al Pittman will talk about the most faithful friend we have - God. When times get tough, sometimes we look around for help and our friends are nowhere to be found. That never happens with God. Psalm 105 is going to be the focal point of today’s message. It’s a Psalm believed to have been written by King David, and as an interesting side note - the first verses of this psalm were sung as a hymn while the Ark of the Covenant was being transported to Jerusalem! Pastor Al begins with the final verses of Psalm 104.

Whether it was God delivering His people from slavery in the Old testament or Jesus dying on the cross of calvary to deliver us from  our sins, God’s providence is something we cannot ignore. God protects His people and provides a means for them to be saved from their sin! Our series is in the Psalms, and we’re currently looking at Psalm 104.

Today - we continue to direct our thoughts toward the attributes of our Great and Awesome God. We find a few of them described for us in Psalm 104. This Psalm’s author expressed his amazement at God’s creation and His providence. There are some wonderful things for us to consider as we understand that God knows everything about us - our past present and future - our actions, words and even our thoughts.

We’ve been making our way through the book of Acts and we find ourselves today at the beginning of chapter seventeen, where the adventures of the Apostle Paul continue. If you have a Bible handy, follow along with us as Pastor Al points to a time when the world was indeed turned upside down.

This is The Dwelling Place, with Pastor Al Pittman, from Calvary Worship Center. Our study through the Psalms takes us to Psalm 103. David wrote this Psalm as a tribute to God’s loving kindness and His wonderful mercy. When we think of God, do we sometimes forget how merciful He is?

Happy Thanksgiving Day! Feel like singing a well known hymn today? Feel like studying a great chapter from the bible? We’re going to do both today here on the Dwelling Place, with pastor Al Pittman. We are continuing Al’s series in the Psalms today with a stop in Psalm 103. The first several verses of this psalm are very familiar to those of us who love singing great hymns of praise.

Next on The Dwelling Place we return to our study of the Psalms, and in Psalm 102, we hear a call for justice, and see the abundance of God’s mercy, love and forgiveness poured out on His people. The Psalms provide many examples of the wonderful love God has for us, and it’s always a good thing to be reminded that He loves us so much, He gave up His most precious possession - His son - to die for our sins.

 God is in the business of refining us, and teaching us to trust in Him, and in the long run, we will be much better off for the struggles we go through. So if you feel a bit disheartened today, stay with us, as pastor Al will offer some encouragement to hang in there and realize that almighty God is in control!
