God is for God – Matt Chandler Sermon

God is for God was preached by Matt Chandler at Elevation Church.  The sermon confronts the error of believing that the Bible is a roadmap for life and therefore we misinterpret passages that are about Jesus and apply them to ourselves.

Chandler sited a bunch of passages about God working for His own glory starting in the 10th minute.  If you’re taking notes at home, here’s the list:

    • Created for His glory (Isaiah 43)
    • Called Israel for His glory (Isaiah 49)
