Hope for Hot Messes

God is with us when we ruin our lives (and we’ve all ruined our lives). Despite the fact that Jacob unleashes a maelstrom of destruction in his life and the lives of his loved ones, God remains faithful to him and promises His abiding presence with him.

God is With You by Sovereign Grace

God is with you by sovereign grace, therefore, you don’t have to be afraid, you don’t have to be impressive, and you don’t have to be manipulative.

Sermon

God’s Sovereign Grace

With Abraham now dead, God is still with the next generation, though as the story progress we find his favor cannot be bought. It is administered by sovereign grace, a doctrine simultaneously offensive and comforting.

Sermon

Trusting God With Your Future

As we conclude the section of Genesis focusing on Abraham and read of his death, we see he had a hope for the future beyond even his death that we too share with him.

Live for the Land God Promises

In Genesis 22 Abraham learned that he must trust the Lord with his promised son. In Genesis 23, Abraham learns to trust the Lord with his promised land. In this chapter we learn how to live for the eternal land that God promises.

Sermon

The Promised Land

As we inch closer to the end of Abraham’s story, we find the promise is progressively fulfilled, but sin and its effects are not yet eradicated. Yet through trust in God’s promise of land in the future, we can have hope alongside mourning in the present.

Sermon

Obey The God You Trust

Genesis 22 is the culmination of Abraham’s journey of faith. For decades the Lord has taught Abraham to trust Him. In Genesis 22 the rubber hits the road: will Abraham obey the God he trusts when it costs him everything?

Sermon

Who You Loyal To?

Who we’re ultimately loyal to is revealed by how we act, not what we say. God tests us to expose what it really is, so that our hope will be set fully on Him.

Take God At His Word

In Genesis 21 the Lord fulfills his promise to provide Abraham and Sarah with a son. Throughout the chapter we learn three reasons why joy is found in taking God at his word.

Sermon

God’s Blessing by God’s Power

We’re told frequently to have hope for the future because we can do whatever we put ours minds to, but what happens when you come up against your flaws? Is there a hope beyond you? Here we see Abraham’s flaws reemerging, but the hope of God’s power fulfilling His promise remains.
