March 3 Worship & Bulletin


Bumper Stickers are short sayings that we tend to put on our vehicles.  They attempt to proclaim a message for everyone to hear.  Unfortunately, when we attempt to create a short pity line we can actually communicate an unhelpful message.  This series looks at a number of saying/bumper stickers we see in our world.  We are attempting to examine the theology behind the saying and investigate about whether or not the saying is Biblical and/or teaches things that are counter to Biblical theology.

Today’s Theme:
‘God is My Co-Pilot’
Is God just along for the ride and we are the ones in charge?  Maybe it’s time to switch seats.  Here again, this is a great slogan, but what does it truly mean that God is just the co-pilot?  How do we let go, and let God be the one in charge?  Maybe the Christian life is one that should be filled with ourselves trying to get out of the way, so that we can discern where God is leading and guiding us all our days.
Questions To Ponder:
1— Which seat are you in?  Driver’s seat?  Passenger seat?
2—Why is it so difficult to give up control and truly let God be in charge?
3—What is helpful and unhelpful about this bumper sticker?
4—What questions do you have about this bumper sticker?
Prayer:  Direct us, Lord, in all our doings and extend to us your continual help; that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in you, we may glorify your holy name; and finally, by your mercy, bring us to everlasting life.  Amen.
