This sermon was part of our church's baby dedication service. Kent talked about the way Hannah dedicated her son Samuel to God and how we do that (differently) today. Teaching on the Parable of the Talents, Kent shows how it isn't just about our activity and works, but how we see God that really matters. The God you see is the God you get. How we see God and live like him can have a huge influence on our children's faith.
As the herald who announced the coming of the King, John the Baptist had an important and powerful ministry. Two of the emphases of his preaching are, first, the reality of sin and the need for repentance. Second, he preached Jesus Christ.

In this section of Scripture we are going to see how Jesus is the Son of God that Israel failed to be. In many instances in the Old Testament, including one of the passages that Matthew quotes, the nation of Israel is referred to as God’s son. Yet the nation as a whole failed to be obedient to God as a Father. Therefore, if they were to be saved, one must come to be the perfectly obedient Son. That is what Jesus did, first by reliving Israel’s time as refugees in Egypt. Second, Jesus brings his people out of exile through his own exile. Third, Jesus brings salvation to the despised by become despised himself.
