Sermons about Hagar
There are two women who are mentioned by name in Hebrews 11 as being women of incredible faith. Sarah is one of those names. She must have been some kind of super-saint, fearlessly pressing forward in the face of adversity, never backing down, and always trusting God. Right? A closer look reveals a completely different story. Sarah was afraid, insecure, prone to fits of rage, abusive, and in one instanced laughed at God and then tried to lie to Him about it. That means that if there was hope for Sarah, then there is hope for us too. The thing that made Sarah a name worth honoring for thousands of years is available to you and me, right now in this moment.
Here we find in this second part of three, that Hagar is in a place of total worship as she calls upon the Name of the Lord. And we realize that like Hagar we too should come in a state of total worship before our loving Heavenly Father

Brad Zinn concludes the series, "Great Women of the Bible," by looking at the story of Hagar, and how her difficult life can reveal the goodness of God.
Christianity is freedom not bondage. In Galatians 5:1, Paul gives two key insights concerning Christian freedom. First, he states the fact of Christian freedom (v. 1a). The purpose of Christ’s redemption was to bring about the freedom of the believer. Second, he sets forth the response to this freedom (v. 1b). The response of the believer is to stand firm in this freedom. These two key insights embody the argument of the whole letter. Since the Galatians were not children of Hagar—the slave woman—but sons of Sarah—the free woman (v. 31) they are to stand firm in this freedom by the power of the Holy Spirit and not return to living under the slavery of law, whether it is the Mosaic Covenant or any kind of legal system.
