Jesus had a mission. So do we. Our flows from his, but Jesus accomplished MORE than we ever could. He sought and saved the lost. We love God and others. This is our mission. This is our MUST. And life without a must amounts to LESS. This is the first sermon about our 2024 theme: LESS IS MORE.

We need a sixth sense. We need that ability to perceive the spiritual real. To see God's glory shimmering in creation. To see Christ's victory looming over our sin. To see the devil's schemes, so they do not ensnare us. Ours is a spiritual world. Elisha perceived this. He prayed others would, as well. In this final message of the series, we observe Elisha standing firm in a spiritual battle because he knows God's invisible army outnumbers his Aramean opponents.

God's redemptive story enfolds unlikely people. Outsiders become insiders. The ritually unclean become righteous. Sinners become saints. Sadly, the inverse happens: insiders become outsiders. Entitlement, greed, and idolatry affect religious people, exposing their lack of commitment to God. This story contrasts the paths of Naaman -- an outsider -- with Gehazi -- an insider -- showing God can reach anyone who is open to him.

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.

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.

The journey of faith begins with a launch. We all have a point where we respond to God's call. God called Abram to go from Haran. Jesus called the disciples to "come and follow." The invitation is a summons from what is familiar. Too often we settle, which stunts our growth, so God sends us into unfamiliar territory. We must look and listen for these launch points if we want our faith to continue flourishing.

Series: Upside Down
Duration: 48 mins 2 secs
Change is challenging. We like our routines. We get stuck in our ways. Predictable is comfortable. However, God invites us to change. The living and true God wants our full allegiance, which means rooting out idols and serving his purposes. This opening sermon in the new series will provide background to Thessalonians, Paul's gratitude for good work, good news, and good examples. And it will inspire a call to change that could turn the world upside down!
