When Abraham was called to go to a different country, he went. When God promised a child, he believed. The concept of faith can be a difficult one. How can we get more of it? Follow Abraham through his walk with God this Sunday and see the source of his faith and yours.
The meeting with God and his people at Sinai after they left Egypt was unique in so many ways. God’s people actually agreed to obey their God. They sealed the covenant with blood. God was good with this, and showed that he was good with this by enjoying a fellowship meal with the leaders of his people.
This Sunday we continue with our series on the Solas of the Reformation. Sola Fide means by faith alone. What does it mean to trust in something or on this Sunday someone as important as our God? Even that trust isn’t something that we can muster in ourselves. It is a gift of God’s Spirit.
Why are there so many churches?! How is it helpful when I drive down the road and see Christian churches of every stripe? Wouldn’t it be easier if there was just one church? Maybe. As we continue our study of Christian doctrine in celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation of the Christian church, we’ll see that sometimes Christians need to “mark and avoid”. Our God calls us to be choosy on theology and witness our faith to all, including fellow Christians. How can we wade through these murky ecclesiastical waters? Watch to find out.
