Equipping and Empowering | Dr. Zach Crook

Psalm 78:1-8

1.  We Can’t Hide the Truth

A) We can’t lose sight of the main thing – the gospel!

B) Asaph shares the history of Israel and tells us about some great mysteries

B1) The first mystery is why did Israel not trust and obey God?

B2) The second is how can God be so gracious?!

2.   God Has Given Us a Testimony and a Law


A) If God hadn’t spoken, we would be lost without any hope

A1) God has a given us a compass to navigate through the craziness of the twenty-first century

B) It’s important to note that God’s testimony comes before God’s demands in the law

B1) He saved Israel from bondage! Therefore, we respond in light of God’s salvation

C) We obey out of love for the mighty rescue that God has given us


3.  We Must Equip and Empower the Next Generation

A) We teach our children, the next generation, to know the truth

A1) This isn’t head knowledge. It’s intimate knowledge. It’s hiding God’s Word in your heart!

B) We are one generation away from losing all influence in our culture, but we are also one generation away from revival!

B1) We are starting our ministry residency program to equip and empower the next generation of leaders in the church.
