Alex Kirk continues his series on getting to the core of change with a challenging discussion of what we place our hopes, our trust--our security in. Below are notes from his sermon, and a link to the audio of the sermon. 

Security (defined) the resource(s) that you look to in order to answer the question who or what will take care of, restore, comfort, or protect me physically, emotionally, and/or spiritually

Psalm 20:7 & our application Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. invitation: abiding trust in God over & above what we can see & typically look to for security.

The last word on security hungers

•no promises for perfect earthly security –not until "new heaven and new earth" •the Biblical story: –Jesus the Son leaves perfect security

–experiences everything we want to be secured from: poverty, abandonment, suffering, death

–in order to bring us back with him –to share in his perfect security with the Father.
