This sermon is part of a series on the basic beliefs of the Christian faith. The outline we’re using is the Apostles’ Creed, and today we come to God. Many people believe in God, but they don’t know him personally.
Moses believed in God, but it really wasn’t until the event with the burning bush in Exodus 3 that Moses came to see who God was and encountered him. The central metaphor is fire in this famous story. God could have appeared as anything, but he chose fire. This is very significant because it shows us three things: God is a real God; he can be known; and he is a God who seeks and sends.
This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 4, 2015. Series “What We Believe: Foundations”. Scripture: Acts 17:16-34.
