Navigating the Presence of God
March 18, 2018      |     By: Sam McVay, Jr.      |      Category: Sermons

The reward of the Gospel is God himself - His Presence.  Sam shares how navigating differing experiences of God's presence can be challenging and how we need wisdom such that we are not led astray by the enemy, don't miss the benefits of the this Presence, nor judge others who may be in a different season

John 14:16-17 (ESV)
16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever,
17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.

John 15:1-5 (ESV)
1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.
2 Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
3 Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

Luke 24:49 (ESV)
49 And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”

Matthew 28:20 (ESV)
20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

His Presence is always with us.
Our experience of His Presence is what changes.

Navigating multiple experiences can be challenging.

We need equipped with wisdom in how to navigate differing experiences of His Presence.

Confusion over this, and deceit from the enemy, can actually be used to cause us to miss the benefits of the Lord's Presence and also can cause us to judge others.
