Sermons about Egypt
We are in the middle of the series “EPIC: Live a Better Story." For most of us, though, life feels like something much less than epic. But that was never the intention… and our spirit knows it. We were designed to play a larger role in a greater story than the one we often end up living. G.K Chesterton said, “I had always felt life first as a story: and if there is a story there is a story-teller.” There is an EPIC story being told... and you have an important role to play. Fortunately, you’re in the right place to find true answers. Don’t give up, though! Your journey is just beginning…
“Religion = Rules" Isn’t that what comes to mind most often when we think of God? We imagine an angry, vengeful God peering over the boundaries of Heaven from his eternal throne, watching… looking… trying to see us make a mistake so he can smite us. The popular perception is this: God’s primary job is to punish failure. Don’t we hear that viewpoint all of the time? Every time a tragedy happens someone says it is God’s discipline. But there has to be more to the story of God and us, right? Is he really only interested in crime and punishment? Perhaps better understanding his rules will help us better understand the Rule Maker.
Abram continues his journey into the Promised Land when famine hits and we get to see the way Abram acts when he is under pressure--and he ends up selling out his wife to save his own skin.
The path down to Egypt, here laid before us is what can probably be regarded as one of the saddest events in the entire life of Abram as we see him making a decision that will bring tremendous trouble into his life as he moves himself and his family into Egypt and away from what God had planned for his life.
Abram and Sarai in Egypt, we can learn to live as we are called. (I am sorry but the sermon doesn't begin until 24 seconds in.)
Dr. Carl Moeller has just returned from Egypt and describes the desperate situation of the persecuted church in that country. Moeller is the President/CEO of Open Doors USA.
