SERMON SERIES: AWAKENED
O day and night, but this wondrous strange!
And therefore as a stranger give it welcome.
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
— William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 5
We live in a world that’s enchanted—a world that’s buzzing with divine presence. If we learn anything from Scripture, it’s that God is always present and always active.
…Why, then, does He often seem so far away? Why do we go entire days without thinking about Him or enjoying His presence?
In this series, we’ll be reminded of how important it is that we wake up to God’s proximity and we’ll explore some practical ways to sharpen our spiritual senses.
PART 1: REJECTING DISENCHANTMENT
Most human beings are living disenchanted lives, there’s no expectation of anything ‘supernatural’. The problem? the world in which we’re living is enchanted—the supernatural surrounds us everyday, God is close, and mystery abounds.
In this message, we’ll explore what’s dulling our senses and be challenged to reject our disenchantment, becoming more alive and alert to the presence of God.
