The Story

New Commands and a New Covenant

February 9, 2020 • Peter Mueller

Since the beginning of creation, God has had a desire to live with us in friendship. Part of that plan was Him giving a list of commands to guide our relationship with Him and others. Even though our sin messed that up, God was not willing to let that be a barrier so He provided ways for our sin to be atoned for: first, with the Old Testament sacrifices and finally, with the gift of His Son Jesus. He used to be present to his people in the Tabernacle and Temple, but now He lives in the hearts of his people by His Spirit. If you believe in Jesus, He lives in you!

God tests us in order to build our faith in him and strong character in us.

This week’s message looks at the story of Abraham and Sarah. In them, God chose the most unlikely people upon which to build a new nation, to cause people to look to God to explain how it happened. This can give people today a lot of hope. God’s strategy of picking the least likely candidate to succeed could be your or mine opportunity to be picked for a God-sized project, so others will be able to see Him when great things happen.

Today's message kicks off our new series called The Story.

It's a story that God has invited us into! Today we begin with a look at God's creation of the universe and all that's it in it and, even as the first humans rebelled and rejected Him, God already proved His enduring love for them and for you and me today.
