Face the Music
Meant to Be | Face the Music Part 1 | St. George
Series Thesis: Every SONG is a SERMON.
Song Thesis: Since we have no CONTROL over what happens to us in life, we should just take the PATH we feel will make us happy.
Question: Who believes that our life “path” is outside of our control?
Answer #1: Those that believe in DETERMINISM = Everything in the universe is absolutely dependent on and governed by natural LAWS.
Answer #2: Those that believe in FATALISM = The belief that “what will be will be,” since all past, present, and future events have already been predetermined by an all-powerful force, such as “Fate.”
Answer #3: Those that misunderstand the concept of God’s SOVEREIGNTY (The belief that God is in complete CONTROL over all things).
Mistake: Some think that since God already knows what will happen and that He is all-powerful, that we don’t have REAL and FREE choices. (Acts 2:22-23; 13:48-14:1)
Reality: The Bible teaches that God is sovereign and that we each make meaningful choices = COMPATIBILISM
The Principle of the Path: The path you CHOOSE has more to do with your final destination than any other factor. (Proverbs 1:32 & Jeremiah 17:9)
A Better Way: Inform your heart with the TRUTH. (John 8:32)
Today’s Insight: We will never FEEL our way into a great life - it’s better to OWN our choice as to which path we will travel.
