Religious services on Rosh Hashanah focus on the concept of God’s sovereignty. That will be our study for this week.
GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY means that He is the Supreme Ruler who immanently and personally rules over all the affairs of the universe—and this includes our personal lives both as individuals and as a local body of believers. God’s sovereignty is a place of rest for the child of God.
GOD REIGNS OVER DEATH (JOHN 5:21)
“For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.”
GOD‘S COUNSEL (EPHESIANS 1:11)
“In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:”
This week we have seen that God reigns over everything. There is nothing exempt from God’s rule.
Knowing this, does it change the way we look at our lives? Will we allow God to be in charge of all areas of our lives? Will we read, obey, and base our lives on God’s word, the Bible? Will we be sharing these truths with others?
