Serving = Testing Faith

September 23, 2010


Sometimes as we walk this journey of following Jesus, we receive pretty specific insights about the purpose and plan that God has for us.  This week’s sermon is about trusting God with the promises He has made us. It is about trusting Him with the tasks that He has given us to do. It is about walking through life “holding loosely” to the things that He has given us.

Abraham in the Bible certainly experienced this.  God promised for years that he would have have a son and father a great nation.  This nation would bless the whole world.  Once his son was actually born, it wasn’t very long before God tested Abraham by asking him to “give up” his son.

Fortunately, Abraham passed the test by showing that he was willing to yield his son to God’s will.  He knew that God’s ability to fulfill promises goes way beyond current circumstances.  That’s why Abraham was able to “hold loosely” the apparent plan that God had to accomplish His purpose.

Come and join us on Sunday at 5 PM as we CONNECT in shared space at 5413 Blue Ridge Cutoff, and bring a message called “Serving = Testing Faith”.

Feel free to take a “sneak peek” at the Scripture passage for the week.
