This morning we will look at Genesis 18 and the question that God asked Sarah. He asked, “why did you laugh?” The question exposed Sarah’s doubt in God’s word. The story also gives us the opportunity to be reminded that the good news of God’s redemptive love gives to us the opportunity to laugh with God in joy. So, the question can still be asked, “why do you laugh?”

As we read Genesis chapter 4 this week we see the steps of a person that is not walking with God in fact they are walking away from God. This begins in the heart and then finds expression in actions leading to God’s question of Cain, “What have you done?"

This week we start a new sermon series titled: The Questions God Asks Us. The first question from God in the bible is asked of Adam and Eve. “Where are you?” This question challenges us to understand that God is still seeking us. All of His questions in the scriptures reveal his redemptive love. A love that does not leave us alone in our sin but seeks us to save us and open our eyes to His presence.

This weeks sermon is title "A walk through the Cemetery.” We will look at Genesis chapter 5 in which the genealogy from Adam to Noah is listed. The repeated statement with each of these in the list are the words, "and then they died.” It is as if we were walking through the cemetery reading epithets. But this record holds a surprise which is both instructive and deeply encouraging… Enoch walked with God!

As we prepare for Vacation Bible School and consider all the work that goes into this effort, it is important to remember that we serve for saving of souls. The human soul is precious to God and should be precious to us. The value of our own soul should be considered as well as the many souls around us.

The word of God from James chapter 3 challenges us to consider a clear test or evidence of our faith. The evidence is heard in what we say. The words we use can be a powerful gift for good or a dangerous tool for destruction. Most of all our words reveal what is in our hearts. The battle to tame our tongue is one that every Christian must win if they are going to be used of God. Faith that works is working hard and to win this battle.

As we continue to study a “Faith that Works,” from the book of James, the church is called to repentance as we consider how we treat people in and out of our fellowship. James points out that we carry the name of the King therefore we are to live and display the Royal Law which is to Love our Neighbor as our selves. I say he is calling us to repentance because as we evaluate our faith by this standard we cannot help but see the reality of sin in our hearts.

This week we will the last part of the first chapter of James. This passage presents practical instruction on Faith that Works. James challenges each of us to let the Word of God change our lives. He points to the fact that if we live out what we hear from God's word in faith then it will be heard in what we say and seen in what we do. Here the scripture gives us tools to test whether or not our faith is working.
