Sermon Outline

  1. Intro
    1. Final week of The Story
      1. Along the way we have met men and women of faith, who have trusted in the words and promises of God
      2. But we have also met people who lacked faith, or were rebellious and trusted in themselves instead in the God who was calling to them.
    2. So how will the story end?
    3. The answer to all of these questions is clearly given in the last book of Scripture ever written.
  2. Where is God’s Upper Story headed? (Rev 20:11-22:21)
