LIFE IS A HIGHWAY: “Riding Shotgun” – Pastor Bruce Lerum

Isaiah 55:6-13; John 16:17-20

Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.

God: “I don’t think the way you do and you don’t do things the way I would.”

Isaiah 55:13 Instead of the thorn bush will grow the juniper, and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.

I really do want to be aligned with God.

Isaiah 55:9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Father knows best…then and now!

Study Questions:

1. When someone thinks differently than we do, we often think they are wrong. Whether it’s true or not, what is it in us that leads us in that direction?

2. Keeping in mind God’s continuing grace, how does God look at us when we are not in line with His thinking?

3. What happens when our lives and behavior are not aligned with the way God has made know that He wants us to live?

4. How are we to align ourselves with God’s hope for us? What does that entail?
