A STRANGE SENSE OF CONFIDENCE

Sermon Handout Do you ever feel out of place? Do you ever feel like you are different? Do you ever feel like you are a stranger? As Christians, we are supposed to feel this way because, according to 1 Peter 2:11, we are “aliens and strangers” in this world. But what does such an identity entail? The book of 1 Peter is a “how to” guide for strangeness, and, so, we turn to it to discover how we are to…

BACKGROUND CHECKS

Sermon Handout Outside of Jesus, it could be argued that no biblical figure is more important than Abraham. He’s the individual through whom God chose to bless the entire world (Genesis 12:3). He’s the individual who so modeled faith that he could be called “the man of faith” (Galatians 3:9).

The Genius Of Jesus’s Genealogy

Sermon Handout While genealogical research is growing in popularity today, it has always been popular in the Jewish culture. So, it should be no surprise that the genealogy of Jesus is recorded in two of the four Gospel accounts (Matthew 1:1-17; Luke 3:23-38).
