Psalm 42: Fighting for Hope in God Print E-mail

The Christian life is a fight.  Or, even better, it is a war with multiple fights and battles going on constantly all around us, without and within.  There are times in our lives when the war seems to be going well.  Maybe we are experiencing victories in a number of difficult areas in our lives or maybe the Lord has given us a time of rest from our struggles.  Of course, there are other times when the war seems to be going about as bad as it could go.  Maybe we are being attacked on every front.  Things are difficult at work, at home, even at Church.  I guess most of the time we spend our lives somewhere in between the two: not necessarily at peace, but not getting bombarded on every side.  We simply must spend our lives in the trenches, longing for the Day of rest that the Scriptures promise.

Gen 48-50: Sovereignty and Responsibility in the Lives of the Patriarchs Print E-mail

It is appropriate to conclude our look at the book of Genesis this morning by returning once again to one of the major themes in the book, namely that of Godís sovereignty. We have seen His sovereignty in creation. We have seen His sovereignty in the calling and choosing of Abraham. We have seen His providential hand moving in the lives of the founding fathers of Israel, namely Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Thus, we see Godís sovereignty as a major theme in the book of Genesis.

Gen 45-47: Learning to Forgive Like Joseph Print E-mail

There is currently a movie out about the men who died with Jim Elliot trying to take the gospel to the Auca Indians in 1956.  The whole story of these men and their wives is incredibly gripping (I would recommend the movie as well).  One of the most moving parts of their story is the fact that the wives of these men actually continued in trying to take the gospel to these Indians.  And by their faithful preaching of the gospel many from the tribe came to know the Lord.

Gen 42-44: Joseph, His Brothers, and their Sin Print E-mail

Have you ever done something wrong and thought that you had gotten away with it, only to realize later that you had not?  I remember one time when I was in the fourth grade I had a really hard teacher who was a tough disciplinarian.  She was very strict on her students and we all had a pretty healthy fear of her wrath.  Yet, as prideful fourth grade boys often do, my friends and I would on occasion try to test our wits with her and see if we would get caught.

Gen 37-41: Suffering in the Life of Joseph Print E-mail

How exactly does the Old Testament point to Christ?  We have said over and over again that Christ is seen in the Old Testament, but what do we mean by that?  How is a person supposed to read the Old Testament in light of the New, in light of the revelation of the Word-who-became-flesh?

Gen 29:31-36:43: Lessons from the Life of a Patriarch Print E-mail

We are a people who are often intrigued by a good biography.  Now, whether you are reading it, listening to it, or watching it on TV, many of us are very interested in the lives of men and women who have gone before us.  But why?  Why are the stories of the lives of people we have never met interesting to us?
