If there is a God, what does he think about you? Our typical answer is: he’s mad. It seems like everyone is mad about something, so God definitely is too. And, probably mad about something we’ve done too, right? But, what if we’re wrong about how God sees us? What if he’s different? What if he’s better? What if he’s actually not mad at you at all?
The question we all ask in some way is… If there is a God what does he think and feel about me? The answer we find has the ability to shape not only our view of God, but how we see others, ourselves, and our place in the world.
What if it is so simple that we missed it even though it’s been there the whole time? Turns out the most important point in Discovering God is the fact that peace with God comes from a single act of trust. It couldn’t be much simpler than that. It’s not that complicated. God is pursuing you. And he is only asking that you trust him.
Our goal at Crosscreek is not just change people’s minds about church… but change people’s minds about God. The common thinking may just be (but may not always be put into words): If there is a God, he’s either uninterested, or angry at me. He’s judgmental, silent, distant, absent when I need him. Or, he only shows up when I do something that doesn’t fit within his narrow rules in order to punish or judge me or make me feel guilty. He’s definitely not FOR me. Well, in part 1 of Discovering God, we want to Introduce (or perhaps re-introduce) you to God and have a conversation about some of these misconceptions about WHO God is.
