The God Who Provides

Good Morning Hope Church! My name is Milan Johnson, and I have been interning under Pastor Russell this summer; however, I will now be taking over the Facilities Manager position for the next year. So as one of my friends described, I guess my job for today is to clean both your toilets and your souls.

Genesis 20-21 The God Who Brings Laughter

Faithful in All He Does
Turn with me, if you would, to Genesis 20-21. Today we are going to have our second to last sermon from the life of Abraham. Next week, we’ll finish up with Abraham and then turn somewhere else in scripture.

But today, we need to continue with a theme that has run throughout our study of Abraham’s life: Will God keep His promises? Will the things God has said come to be in Abraham’s life?

Genesis 19 The God Who Judges Sin

A Tough Passage to Read
Our Scripture passage this morning is a difficult one to read in a worship service. It is not a nice story. I even debated whether I should read it this morning, but decided that it is in the Bible, and if you have read it, you probably have questions about it, so I can’t pretend it’s not there.

Genesis 18 The God Who Does What is Right

Two Questions
Two questions. That’s what we are going to be looking at today. Two questions, about God, to which you must be firmly convinced of the answers. Two questions.

Is God strong enough to make a difference? And is He fair? Those are the questions that come up again and again. Whenever a tragedy strikes, whenever the stresses pile up, people start asking: Is God strong enough to make a difference? And is He fair?

Genesis 16 The God Who Sees

We’re going to have an interactive beginning to our sermon today. I’m going to begin a sentence, and I want you to finish it. Ready? Here it is: “God helps those who…”

“…help themselves.” Very good. I thought that would be familiar to you. Now, a little bit harder question: Can anyone tell me where that line is found in the Bible?

Genesis 15 The God Who Commits

How Do You Know?
You’re sitting in the hospital room, waiting for the angiogram report. Yesterday, you felt fine. A little stiff in your shoulder, maybe, like you tweaked a muscle, no big deal. But, here you are wearing a flimsy hospital robe with a sand bag on your leg, waiting for the doctor to tell you just how many arteries are clogged and just what exactly he plans to do about it.

Genesis 13-14 The God Who Keeps His Promises, part 2

Part II
This week’s sermon is entitled “Part II” because its theme is closely related to last week’s message.

Genesis 12:10-20 The God Who Keeps His Promises, Part I

I wonder if many of you remember the story of Dave Bliss. Dave Bliss is the former men’s basketball coach at the University of Baylor.

The God Who Promises

Genesis 11:27-12:9 The God Who Promises

I invite you to open your Bibles to Genesis 11:27. Today we are embarking on a new journey, a journey through the stories about Father Abraham.

You’ve probably sung the song: “Father Abraham, had many sons, and many sons had father Abraham.” I’m hoping you’ve sung it, otherwise I feel pretty silly. It’s kind of the Christian version of Hokey-Pokey, with a lot of arms and legs and standing up and sitting down.
