Diverting to Egypt

Throughout our spiritual journey, we often weave around obstacles of our own making. Abraham is on a pilgrimage to the land of promise – but he gets sidetracked in Egypt. Today Dr. John teaches that our lack of faith in God’s promises leads to problems we try to fix on our own. We don’t need man-made solutions to man-made problems. We need the grace of God.


Journeying to the Promised Land

Abraham was a pilgrim looking for a city whose founder and maker is God. So we, like our father in the faith, are sojourners on this earth. We can trust the leading of God to take us all the way home to dwell with our Lord forever.


Gaining Everything

It’s been quoted that, “no man is a fool who gives up what he cannot hold, to gain what he cannot lose.” In the promises that come to us in Christ, we have lost nothing and gained everything.


Abandon Everything

Abraham is a story of belief in God – but it is a sacrificial faith. The gospel is free, but invites us to consider the cost. So like Abraham, let us count on God and His promises as more precious than any thing of this world.


Abraham and the Christian Faith

Abraham is spoken of as the “father of faith.” He does not generate faith but is a template for all of us. Therefore, one can never fully understand Abraham without seeing him not only encountering the gospel, but encountering Jesus Himself.


God’s Agenda With Israel

Cartography is an ancient discipline which traces the place and relationship of countries. Maps show us where countries are and how they are in relationship to one another. In today’s message, Dr. John quotes the Apostle Paul in Athens. We will note that God is the One who determines the boundaries of nations. The atlas is drawn by God and He does this so that all may seek Him. God has always had a global mission and heart. He will fill the earth with His glory and use Israel as His means.
