The Lord of the Story– Jacob Steals a Blessing

February 9, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Lord of the Story

 

In Genesis 27 we see the story of Jacob fooling his father into giving him the blessing instead of his older brother Esau. What a strange way for God to continue the line of the Messiah!

What does this story say about God? What does it say about us? What’s all this talk of “blessing” all about?

The Lord of the Story– Abraham

February 3, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Lord of the Story

In Genesis 12, God chooses Abram (he later changes his name to Abraham) to be the man who God would bless the world through.

As we look at Abraham’s story, we see our own because it is a powerful story of God’s grace and faithfullness– then, now, and forever!

The Lord of the Story– The Tower of Babel

January 28, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Lord of the Story

In the story of The Tower of Babel, we see that mankind, made in the image of God, can achieve great things. But these achievements can actually drive us away from God rather than towards him. God, in his lovingkindness, may thwart these plans and actions for our own benefit.

This week we continue our series called  The Lord of the Story.
We will be looking at the story of the Tower of Babel. It is a story about incredible achievement and God’s response. At first glance it may appear that God acts irrationally or even defensively when he sees what people are capable of– but, as is often the case, there is much more at stake than meets the eye.

To prepare for this Sunday, you will want to read two stories and we will see how they are related. First read the story of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9. The go forward a few chapters and read the story of Jacob’s Ladder in Genesis 28:10-15.

As we look at these stories we will see some similarities and differences– and why the Tower of Babel is so significant to our lives today.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

The Lord of the Story– Noah

Series: The Lord of the Story

In the story of Noah and the Flood, we see both God’s judgment and his loving kindness. How can we understand the events of the story through the eyes of a loving God?

Last week, we began a new series at Grace Family Fellowship called The Lord of the Story.

I had planned on starting the series with the story of Noah and the Flood. But as I was thinking about it, I decided that we needed a bit more of an introduction into our look at God in the Old Testament. The reason? Well, sometimes look at the God of the Old Testament with fear and trepedation. He can appear unfair, angry, and, well, kinda mean. But when we see Jesus, we have a different picture. Kind, gentle, merciful…

As we look at stories form the Old Testament, we must keep in mind that the God of the Old Testament and God of the New Testament are the same. And over the next several weeks we are going to see that.

In addition to Sunday mornings, we will use our Wednesday night Bible studies to look more deeply into each story and see how they can apply to various areas in our lives.

This week we will look at the story of Noah and the Flood. Although most of us know the basics of this story, we will learn that is a valuable and encouraging message for today. To prepare, read Genesis chapters 6-9.

This will be a great series for those of us who are familiar with many of the sotries of the Bible, but never have actually read or studied them. One goal for 2014 for our church is to become more “biblically literate”- personally growing in our knowledge of Scripture.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

January 12th News- New Series!

January 8, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

This week we will begin a new series at Grace Family Fellowship called The Lord of the Story.

In his Word- the Bible- God gives us stories about people just like us facing the kinds of issues that we face. We see how God intervenes and interacts within the story and how those within the story respond. As we study these stories we discover that they are our story as well.

For several weeks we will look at stories from the Old Testament and see, not only how they relate to us today, but how they relate to the bigger story of God’s redemption of a fallen world.

In addition to Sunday mornings, we will use our Wednesday night Bible studies to look more deeply into each story and see how they can apply to various areas in our lives.

This week we will look at the story of Noah and the Flood. Although most of us know the basics of this story, we will learn that is a valuable and encouraging message for today. To prepare, read Genesis chapters 6-9.

This will be a great series for those of us who are familiar with many of the sotries of the Bible, but never have actually read or studied them. One goal for 2014 for our church is to become more “biblically literate”- personally growing in our knowledge of Scripture.

Nehemiah Part 12– The Gates of Jerusalem 4

July 8, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

This is the final message in a “mini-series” about the gates that were repaired in Jerusalem during the time of Nehemiah. The last gate restored was the Inspection Gate (or Miphkad Gate). This gate reminds of of judgment that will come one day.
