Lead Pastor Matt Nickoson walks us through the book "When People are Big and God is Small," in a five week series.
Matt is convinced this issue gets to the root of everyone’s major problem in this world, and that’s a big thing to say.
“If you’ll commit the next 5 weeks to coming to KCC or going online to listen, we will do our best to help you understand why you are the way you are, why you act the way you do, and what to do about it. Seriously, we’re talking about 7 or 8 hours of your life – it’s a small investment to find out some things you’ve always been wondering."
Step 1: Recognize that the fear of man is a major theme both in the Bible and in your own life.
Step 2: Identify where your fear of man has been intensified by people in your past.
Step 3: Identify where your fear of man has been intensified by the assumptions of the world.
Step 4: Understand and grow in the fear of the Lord. The person who fears God will fear nothing else.
Step 5: Examine where your desires have been too big. When we fear people, people are big, our desires are even bigger, and God is small.
Step 6: Rejoice that God has covered your shame, protected you from danger, and accepted you. He has filled you with his love.
