Abraham And Abimelech: Is God Faithful When We're Not? Genesis 20

2/13/2018
More
People familiar with the Bible often think of people like Abraham as heroes of the faith. While that sentiment is true in a way, Genesis 20 shows us that he was far from perfect. In fact, what God did through Abraham shows us that a life of faith is much more about God's faithfulness than ours.

Lot: The Judge Of All The Earth Does What Is Right--Genesis 18:16--19:38

2/6/2018
More
We all know deep down that when someone does something wrong, justice should be done and there must be some kind of punishment. But is God just? Does He give people what they deserve? The account of Lot being delivered from Sodom and Gomorrah is an example of God's justice. The question we must consider is, do we trust God to do what is right in our lives?

1/31/2018

If you're going to have a relationship with someone, you need to know how to interact with them. Couples have a DTR--define the relationship.

Abram: Gods Response To Two Sincere Questions--Genesis 15

1/9/2018
More
Sometimes we have questions for God. Some of them are not very serious, but some of them are. Questions like, "How could you let that happen?" Or "Can you really hear me?" Abram had two questions for God in Genesis 15. God's response show us two foundations that we can stand on when we have questions for Him too.

Why Did Jesus Come? To Bring A Sword, Not Peace--Matthew 10:34-39

12/20/2017
More
The reason Jesus gives us in Matthew 10 as to why He came is one that flies in the face of what many want to feel when they think about Christmas. "Peace on earth" is a key theme of Christmas. But Jesus said He didn't come to bring peace, but a sword. What did He mean? And what are the implications for those who want to follow Jesus?

Why Did Jesus Come? To Save The World Not Condemn It--John 3:16-17

12/12/2017
More
Nicodemus was a man who likely thought he was right with God because of who he was. He was a Jew and leader among the Jews--very respected among society. When we think that way, we believe God accepts us and condemns those not like us. But John 3:16-17 tell a different story. Jesus actually didn't come to condemn the world, but to save it.

11/28/2017

There are two ways to look at the world. One is the way Lot looked at the world, and the other is the way Abram did. Which characteristics define us? How is that important? How can we see our lives the way God wants us to?

Abram: How God Proves We Can Trust Him During Opposition--Genesis 12:10-20

11/21/2017
More
Not all of our Bible heroes were upright their entire lives. In Genesis 12:10-20, Abram showed a lack of faith in God's promises and substituted his wife for his own sake. How do we show a willingness to let others suffer so we can gain the benefit? And how can we become free from that tendency and desire?

Abram: Great Faith In God's Word

11/14/2017
More
Following Jesus involves cost. Sometimes we get scared about what it does cost to serve Him and find ourselves reclusive to go into the darkness to speak a word of truth or be Jesus' representatives. Abram wasn't that way though. How can we pursue obedience to God like Abram did?

Babel: How Our Ways To Heaven Turn Into Confusion

11/7/2017
More
We tend to find hard work and creativity as endearing characteristics. People like Michael Jordan draw us in and make us want to root for them because of their sheer will power and internal drive. But is there any danger to self-sufficiency? If so, what is it? We find the answer in the account of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11.

People: How God Designed Us To Function

9/26/2017
More
Lady Gaga said, "I'm on the right track, baby, I was born this way." As shocking as that artist is, she is kind of right. It does matter how we were made. The question is, "How has God designed us to function?" And perhaps a bigger question is, "Is the way I was born how God designed us to function?" These questions are answered in this sermon from Genesis 2:4-25.
