Well, we have had a great and challenging time with the series around the idiom “heaven”. Lives were changed thru these sermons! God has laid on my heart to do a series of sermons on the idiom of “hand”. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “idiom” as an expression that cannot be understood from the meanings of its separate words but that has a separate meaning of its own: a form of language that is spoken in a particular area and that uses some of its own words, grammar, and pronunciations.
Anticipate these sermons built around the idiom, “hands”. Try to match these idioms with a scripture that I might use:
- “Get Out of Hand” (to get out of control)
- “Close at Hand” (very near)
- “Lend a Hand” (help someone or a cause)
- “Wash Your Hands of” (to stop something you’re doing)
- “Take Matters Into Your Own Hand” (take action on matters yourself)
- “In Good Hands” (in care of someone very capable)
- “Hands Down” (obviously, unquestionably, without a doubt)
Maybe you have an “hands” idiom. Share it with me and it may end up a sermon!
