As my family began to prayerfully prepare for our journey to Church of the Servant, our first worship series began to take shape. After much prayer and study, I will begin with a worship series focusing on one of the Old Testament’s greatest men of faith, Abraham. Abraham has been a source of great encouragement for me as I prepare to leave everything I know in Georgia and venture to Oklahoma to be with each of you. Here is a quick look at what each sermon will focus upon during our first six weeks together.
See you SOON!
June 4, 2017 – The Journey Begins!
Primary Scripture: Genesis 12:1-5a
On June 4, I will share our story and how God has called each of us to journey with Him. Each of our journey’s will take faith and courage, especially when God calls us away from everything we know. How is God calling you to journey during this new season at Church of the Servant?
June 11, 2017 – Passing Through…
Primary Scripture: Genesis 12:10-16
Abraham arrives in the promise land and then immediately has to leave. Often each of us wants God to answer our questions, deliver us from our present reality, and when we think we have it all figured out, God sends a curve ball that is almost impossible to hit. Does life seem to be unsettled at the moment? If so, know you are in great company and never forget God is at work!
June 18, 2017 – Mistakes Along the Way
Primary Scripture: Genesis 16:1-6
Even one of the most important Old Testament figures made mistakes – in fact, two major mistakes. So what will God do with us when we fall short along the journey? Abraham was still used by God in spite of his failure. God fulfilled His promises and God wants to use each of us too!
June 25, 2017 – Prayers for Others
Primary Scripture: Genesis 18:20-33
Abraham questions God and survives. Some of us were raised thinking we are not allowed to question God, but Abraham’s story teaches us something very different. When Abraham questions God, his focus is on others, not his own needs.
July 2, 2017 – Understanding Old Testament Covenant
Primary Scripture: Genesis 17:1-8
Covenant is important! Promises are hard to keep at times, but God has never broken one of His covenants yet. God’s promise to Abraham is lifelong and Christ’s new covenant is still being fulfilled today! On July 2, we will look at Old Testament covenant and the New Testament covenant available to each of us today!
July 9, 2017 – God Provides
Primary Scripture: Genesis 22: 1-8
Abraham is asked by God to do something unimaginable. Was this a test of Abraham’s faith or was it something much deeper? Abraham could have easily felt as though God had forgotten His promises. Nonetheless, God provides the perfect sacrifice in Abraham’s greatest hour of need. No matter what you may think, God has never forgotten you!
