Back in Genesis!
What an excellent message from David Baum last week on Ephesians 4:11–16 and “Six Ways God Gets Glory from the Local Church.” If you missed it, watch or listen to it here and continue to pray for the Baums as they prepare to plant a church soon!
This week we’ll pick back up in Genesis for the balance of the summer. The text this Sunday, Genesis 12:10–14:24, is a bit longer than we usually cover in one sermon, but I hope by the end of it you’ll see how it fits together to show us a beautiful gospel truth. I say it often, but it would be especially helpful if you read the text a few times before Sunday. As you read, take note of Abram’s cowardice, his courage, and a mysterious priest named Melchizedek who ultimately points to Christ. I’d also encourage you to read Hebrews 7 which sheds light on Melchizedek.
Finally, we’ll receive communion as a church family this Sunday. I’m looking forward to seeing all of you!
Grace and peace,
