don't get shipwrecked: part two.

Here are more notes from that "Things that people do to shipwreck their faith" sermon.

  1. Choose, by default, the easy way. Acts 14:22. It takes a lot of difficulty or trouble to get to where you're going sometimes, but it's totally worth it. The Kingdom of God is worth the price. Romans 6:16. The easy way is not necessarily the God way. The easier way is to just DIE [to your will]. Relinquish all control to God.
  2. Announce their intentions. Foolish people announce their intentions or plans. Wise people ask counsel. Fools keep their own counsel. Proverbs 12:15, Proverbs 20:18
  3. Don't confront their problems. 1 Samuel 17:24. Most shipwreck begins as a trial, problem, or conflict that goes unsolved or unresolved. What you don't confront will dominate you.
Again, well said Ryan.
