Guest Speaker: James Ramseyer Hebrews 11:8-16 DISCLAIMER: Due to some technical difficulties while recording the sermon, there is a good bit of background noise. Sorry!
The book of Deuteronomy serves as a reminder to God’s people of his steadfast love and devotion, and a call for that devotion to be met with praise, worship, and faithful obedience.
Genesis 12, 15, 17 God establishes a relationship with a named Abram, and everything changes. The covenant promises made and established by God constitute the narrative backbone of the rest of the Bible’s storyline as it ascends to the advent of Christ, who both fulfills, and is the fulfillment of, God’s covenant.
Genesis: An Overview Series introduction and overview of the book of Genesis. As a book of beginnings, we learn that God has been consistently working and pursuing his creation from the very start. Genesis is crucial to our understanding of the Bible because it sets the stage for narrative of Redemption we witness throughout time.
Jeremiah 29:11 A favorite verse to share, this promise is not a spiritual good luck charm or promise of prosperity. Rather, it is the weary exile’s hope for a future rooted in the faithful promises of God.
The vision of every church must be marked by a hope in the return of Christ, and a desire for covenant diversity and community. As the church engages with the world around it, this vision will influence and guide us as Kingdom ambassadors.
John 8:31-59 Jesus confronts the fickle faith of the Jews, and by exposing their insincere faith, paints a clear picture of what genuine faith really looks like.
Psalm 44 Psalm 44 helps us orient our response to tragedy and uncertainty in a Godward direction. When faced with trial and honest frustration, how do we avoid the hope-blindness of distrust in God’s covenant faithfulness? By reminding ourselves of the inseparable love of God toward us in Christ Jesus his Son.
The joy and wonder of Jesus is that he invites us to come to him even when he has already come to us. What ultimately fuels our witness of Christ is Christ’s witness about himself. We call others to “come and see” this man who knows so much about our lives and promises to show us great things.
