Sufferer

The story of Job can be most perplexing. Yet, embedded in this narrative is a story of God. Consider the many foreshadows of Christ, as our Sufferer weaved throughout this story.  Text: Job 1:1, 22, 42:7-11

Provider

We see in the events of Abraham and Isaac God’s plan displayed that Jesus is the provider of our eternal salvation. God is faithful and through His divine providence gives us the provisions which lead us to Christ.
Text: Gen. 22:1-19

Carrier

The extent of evil and violence in the human heart and the corruption which fills the earth grieves the heart of God (Gen 6:5-12). So He finds a righteous man, and by the obedience of that righteous man, God rescues and renews all of creation.  Text: Genesis 6:11-22, 7:13-17, 8:15-17; Romans 5:19

Coverer

The unchanging character of God, fulfilled in Christ, enters the story at the darkest moment following creation–the Fall. In the “Hidden” series, consider a type of Christ emerging in “plain sight” from the very beginning.  Text: Genesis 2:25-3:21

Grace for Life

Grace is a free gift that God gives us, but it is also a responsibility. Such a free gift, if misunderstood, can lead to abuse. Some might think they can now sin as they please because grace abounds to the sinner. But God’s grace enables the believer to live a new life.  Text: Philippians 2:12-13

Restored Giving

A key characteristic of God is radical generosity. Human nature is to withhold generosity in worship–which includes giving. However, a window into God’s heart reveals a treasure easily overlooked.  Text: Malachi 3:6-18

Restored Justice

Sermon #3 in A Heart of Worship Restored series  Text:  Malachi 2:17-3:5
