Son of David, Son of Abraham
Matthew 1:1-17 The names and titles attributed to Jesus in the first chapter of Matthew go a long way in defining his mission and ministry to a lost and hurting world.  We begin this morning by considering the significance of his genealogy.
  • The Son of Abraham
  • The Son of David
  • The Son of Zerubbabel
  • The Son of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary
By coming into the world, Jesus related himself to all of humankind— men & women, rich & poor, Jew & Gentile, immoral & pure.  By God’s design, there is no barrier to keep any person from receiving Jesus as Savior and Lord!

    Elijah & the God of All Generations
    Series: Elijah
    1 Kings 19:19-21 & 2 Kings 2:1-15 Our God is eternally active.  As He worked in past generations, so He still works in our lives today—and will continue even when we are gone.  He calls us to learn from those who have gone before us, and to do our part in training up a new generation of faithful believers. Before Elijah’s earthly ministry came to an end, God directed him to anoint the young man Elisha as the prophet to succeed him.  In Elisha’s response, we can find direction in carrying on God’s ministry.

    • Go on a little further, building on the foundation already laid.
    • Ask for a little more of God’s power and grace in order to make a difference in this world.
    Hebrews 12:1 - "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."
