The Blame Game

We all struggle when we play the blame game. When things go wrong, we blame our-selves for not being enough. We blame our friends and family. And, whether we admit it or not, we blame God. While it’s important to take responsibility when we’re at fault and allow others to face the consequences for their actions, the real culprit for our struggles is sin. So, to stop the struggle with blame, we can rely on Jesus, who took the blame for our sin. Genesis 3:8-15

Sibling Rivalry

It is heartwarming to see siblings hug each other, hold hands, and interact in friendly ways. Unfortunately, this is not the status quo in many families. Sibling rivalry results in wrestling matches, hurtful words, and damaged relationships. Forgiveness doesn’t always come as easy as an apology, especially for adult siblings. But God calls us to forgive others as He forgives us, and this includes our siblings. Sermon Text: Genesis 50

The Imperfect Family

The Bible is full of people who are a part of imperfect families, from Moses to Jacob to Jesus. With imperfect families can come pain and feelings of rejection. Although you may have been rejected, remember this: you are accepted by your new family. And you are always adopted and accepted by God. Scriptures: Exodus 2:1-10; John 4:1-26 Sermon Text: Genesis 21-1-6

Faith Grows Through the Good and Bad

Faith Grows Through Good and Bad Joseph is a wonderful example for any young person who finds himself far from home and in trouble. God can use those ties to grow our faith and make it shine brighter and more clearly. Scriptures: Hebrews 11:24-26; Luke 9:18-24 Sermon Text: Genesis 39:6-12, 16-23

Destiny: Where Are We Going When We Die?

Is there life after death? If there is, what will that life be like? From a completely human perspective it would appear as though this life is all there is. When you die, you’re dead. In the Scripture, however, we discover that death was not a part of God’s original plan for the world, that death is God’s judgment against sin. That makes death frightening and ugly, but God found a way to destroy death forever. We now look forward to Paradise restored! Sermon Text:  Genesis 3:16-24

Morality: What Is Good?

Who determines what’s right and wrong? Shouldn’t the individual have the right to determine that for himself or herself? That sounds good to me. But how is that actually going to work in the real world? Is morality subjective or objective? A scriptural world-view makes no bones about it. The Creator calls the shots. Sermon Text:  Genesis 3:1-15

Meaning: Why Are We Here?

Am I here to have fun? Am I here to somehow make the world a better place? Is there no way for me to know why I’m really here? The answers we come up with aren’t really satisfying. In the end what I come up with seems so, well, meaningless. But when the Bible talks about why we’re here, it makes sense. I begin to see that I have meaning and purpose that reaches far beyond myself and this broken world. Sermon Text:  Genesis 2:8-25

Origin: Where Did We Come From?

Am I just here by chance, a random lucky draw of the straw? Is there nothing special about me other than the fact that the genetic mutations of my ancestors produced the “me” I am today? God says “No.” God says that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wow! That changes everything. Sermon Text: Genesis 2:4-7
