Sermon: Genesis 18:1-15, 21:1-7

I have posted my sermon for today on my sermon blog. It’s based on Genesis 18:1-15 and Genesis 21:1-7 and entitled “God Is A Promise – Keeper”.

Here’s a portion of it:

Bruce Reyes – Chow is a candidate for moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Over the past few months he has fielded many questions about what our denomination needs to do to stem the tide of membership losses and begin a new tide of membership gains. A few weeks ago he posted this response on his blog about whether the Presbyterian Church could change:

if we can center our lives on the transformational nature of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, I have no doubt that will be changed. And that gives me hope. I hope it does for you as well.

Sarah could not fulfill God’s promises on her own.
We can not fulfill them on our own – but – with God – they are fulfilled.

God kept his promises to Abraham and Sarah.
God keeps His promises to us.
God keeps His promises to you.

As incredible as it may seem – you can be made new!
Let God do it!
Let God make a difference in your life!
Let God change you!

As incredible as it may sound – we as a Church can be made new!
Let God do it!
Let God make a difference in your life – and that will make a difference in the life of the Church!
Let God change you – and that will change the Church!
