"Starting Over Again for the First Time"

This Sunday’s message is entitled "Starting Over Again for the First Time". Thirteen years have passed since Genesis 16. As we come to Genesis 17, it sounds like another promise of God to bless Abram and Sarai. Abram is now 99 years old. Sarai is almost 90. Yet, there is something very, very new here. Just when Abram might be tempted to think that it’s too little too late for him, God says, “Okay, now we are ready!” This chapter is great news for anyone who has thought that they were too far gone to be any good to God. It is really good news for those who feel like their spiritual lives have been shriveling up during COVID, messed up by marriage or parenting, and worn out by the long wearying wilderness experiences of life. It’s never too late for a new start, for a new vision, for a new engagement with the mission of the God. God delights to give people new hearts and new starts. Is God calling you to a new and fresh start with his mission and call on your life? Let’s encourage one another on Sunday with this great gospel hope!

From Series: "From Brokenness to BLESSING: A Journey into the Heart of God"

The life of Abraham is a fascinating one because, as we will see, Abraham’s journey was not so much a journey to the land of Canaan but actually a journey towards heaven (see Hebrews 11:16). His destination is not so much an earthly one but a spiritual one. It’s a journey of a fatherless and heirless man into the presence and promise of God. It’s a journey into the very heart of God. God takes a broken family and a broken man and shows him that He will make him into a Father of many nations who reflects the very heart of God the Father Himself. This is an invitation to all of you to bring your brokenness and join us in our study of the life of Abraham. May the story of Abraham’s journey from brokenness to blessing become the story of all who find the hope of God by faith as he did.
