Your life tells a story. What is at the center? Your successes or failures? Your family of origin or romantic exploits? Your journeys, anxieties, or idols? The apostle Paul was living a story of religious zeal and ignorance. Then Jesus interrupted him. The Lord confronted Paul, gave him a new calling, and centered his story around God's mercy. Perhaps you need interrupted too.

Galatians reads like an intervention. Paul writes in ALL CAPS to get the attention of the Galatian Christians. They have traded the true gospel for an un-gospel. Foolishness! His letter not only reprimands their drift toward Jewish law but also reminds them of the amazing grace of Jesus and wonderful gift of the Spirit.

Dogged faith is gritty, resilient, and enduring. It pushes through resistance and past prejudice. A profound example of such faith was the Canaanite woman with a demon-possessed child. Her desperate situation drove her to Jesus. She begged him for healing, despite the disciples efforts to dismiss her. Her dogged faith impressed Jesus. In our "age of overwhelm" we need dogged faith to endure.

Detours come when we least expect them. Flooded roads. Stopped trains. Roadwork. Whatever the cause, detours reroute us and test our patience. When God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, this was the ultimate detour. And yet, the father of the faith journey navigates the detour calmly. His posture of surrender allowed him to make a gesture of sacrifice. This remarkable story seals God's promise to Abraham and shows how his provision comes in surprising ways.

Accidents happen. Some are caused by reckless living. Some are acts of God. (We'll let the insurance agents make those determinations!) Though we cannot avoid accidents, we can live with "faithful presence" so our lives and prayers extend God's common grace to those around us. In this sermon, we will consider Abraham's response to news of disaster coming to Sodom and Gomorrah where his nephew Lot is located.

Pastor Tim and Pastor Aaron embark on a drive and engage in a conversation about Abraham, faith, circumcision, and Jesus. Their talk stems from Genesis 17. When God speaks, faith responds immediately.

Abram and Sarai have a hard time waiting for God's timing. The promise of a child lingers, so they take issues into their own hands, enlisting Hagar as a surrogate. Embracing the wait is hard. Faith is full of slow downs, stand stills, and difficult moments. Nevertheless, God sees us.

Driving at night may be exciting at first, but it eventually feels lonely. The hours drag on. The road stretches out. The dawn lingers. Faith can feel like a dark night--lonely, restless, endless. Perhaps you have felt the dark night of the soul. Abraham did. He questioned God. Doubts swelled when the promises of God delayed. The good news is this: God never leaves you in the dark night, but uses the time to deepen your faith.

We cannot cruise too long in life. Eventually we come to a construction zone. These are places of divine testing. Difficult circumstances reveal what is within us. Are we fearful or faithful? Honest or deceptive? Abraham ran into a construction zone in Canaan when famine struck. He escaped to Egypt but not his fear of dying. This construction zone exposed his false self and God's faithfulness. And it shows us that faith finds the way through, not the way out.
