Fellowship

Sunday morning I began a four to five week series on “Biblical Community.” In the first sermon we thought about the idea of fellowship. I emphasized that the concepts of fellowship and biblical community are closely related. We saw four aspects of fellowship: relationship, partnership, communion, and sharing.

Sunday night we continued our study of Genesis by looking at 27:1-40. In the story, Jacob stole Esau’s blessing. We saw that each of the four people in the story sinned in one way or another. I tried to show how God works out his plans, even through sinful people and sinful actions.

Stand . . . by Praying

Yesterday morning we finished our study of Ephesians, by looking at 6:18-24. We saw that prayer is an essential ingredient in the fight of faith. We stand, in God’s armor, against the attacks of the devil, by praying.

Last night we looked at all of Genesis 25. We saw the death of Abraham, the birth of Jacob and Esau, and Esau’s foolish choice to sell his birthright.

The Armor of God – Part 1

Yesterday morning we began looking at the individual pieces of the armor of God. In Ephesians 6:14-15 we considered the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, and the shoes of the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

Last night we looked at Genesis 23. As we considered the death and burial of Sarah, we thought about the idea that, as believers, we are exiles (or aliens and strangers) in this world.
