Seeing Him Who is Invisible

We returned yesterday morning to our sermon series entitled “Strolling Through the Hall of Faith,” with a message on Hebrews 11:23-29. We were introduced to one of the key characters of the Old Testament, Moses. We saw that Moses’ faith began with the faith of his parents when they willing risked their own lives and hid Moses for three months before placing him in the basket in the Nile River. His faith is also seen in the many decisions he made to sacrifice power, pleasure, and possessions, and to embrace persecution. We were only able to get through half of the message in the morning, so we continued with part two in the evening. You can listen to these messages by visiting our sermons page or click the links below.

Dying Faith

Sunday morning we continued our stroll through the “Hall of Faith” in Hebrews 11. We were in verses 20-22 where we saw three patriarchs: Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph. All three are examples of “Dying Faith.” The statistics on death are appaling. One hundred out of one hundred people die. When it comes our time to die if we are believers then there is no doubt that God gives dying grace. We can at the same time give back to God our dying faith. In that moment we can give to God our greatest worship. We can give to our families a testimony and treasure. You can listen to this message by following this link or visit our sermons page.

Take This Stress Test

A ministry friend sent me the following test earlier today. I am not sure exactly how this works, but it is amazingly accurate.

The  picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on  stress levels at  the Mayo Clinic and later at Fletcher Medical Center in Burlington. Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A  closely monitored, scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that  the dolphins are identical, a person under stress will find many differences  between the two dolphins .  

The  more differences a person finds, the more stress that person is  experiencing. Look  at the photograph and if you find more than one or two differences you may  need to take a vacation.

Faith’s Supreme Test

We returned this morning to our series entitled “Strolling Through the Hall of Faith,” a verse by verse study of Hebrews 11. We are looking at the third message on our fourth character, Abraham. We saw that Abraham believed God when he didn’t know where (vv.8-10). Genesis 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country (He was to leave his residence), and from thy kindred (his relatives), and from thy father’s house (and his resources), unto a land that I will shew thee. He was to follow God’s leading into a promised land that he had never seen. He believed God when he didn’t know how. (vv.11-16) Abraham and Sara, in their twilight years were promised that they would be parents. Abraham regarded himself as “good as dead,” and even laughed when God told him the news, but at 99 years of age Abraham became a father. This morning we saw how Abraham believed God when he didn’t know why? (vv.17-19) God puts Abraham to the test. It has been said that a faith that cannot be tested, cannot be trusted. God administered to Abraham “Faith’s Supreme Test,” which Abraham passed with flying colors. You can listen to this message by following this link or visit our sermons page.
