The Lord redirected Abraham when he made mistakes. Why does Abraham father a child through Hagar, Sarah’s servant (Gen. 16:1-3)? Name some consequences of Abraham’s attempt to fulfill God’s promise on his own (Gen. 16:4-6, 11-12). The passage doesn’t record whether or not God directly rebuked Abraham for his disobedience with Hagar. Perhaps the natural consequences of his…

In the message we focused on making sure we are being sent, as opposed to going wherever we want. I think all of us at times feel a bit more disconnected from God telling us where to go than we really are. So this week we are going to take a couple minutes, instead of just one, and do some bible study for the first three days and then focus on the application the…

Judges 6:15-16 15 And he said to him, “Please, Lord, how can I save Israel? Behold, my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.” 16 And the Lord said to him, “But I will be with you, and you shall strike the Midianites as one man.” I’m dyslexic. I can remember sitting outside my second grade room listening with my ear to the door as…

Joshua 1:11 11 “Pass through the midst of the camp and command the people, ‘Prepare your provisions, for within three days you are to pass over this Jordan to go in to take possession of the land that the Lord your God is giving you to possess.’” Moses was an amazing leader, he had his deficiencies like all of us for sure, but wow, leading a nation of slaves on a camping…

Hebrews 11:24-25 24 By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, 25 choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. To not be given an opportunity is one thing, to be given an opportunity that you “refuse” is something completely different. Courage to deny yourself a…

Genesis 41:38 38 And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is the Spirit of God?”[a] Let’s stick with the name Joseph for another day. What matters from what Joseph shows us is not so much the events or circumstances of life, but your response to them. If we are to have a positive response, it is gonna be a on the heels of courage. At…

Matthew 1:19-20 19 And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. 20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. This week we are…

Acts 20 9And a young man named Eutychus, sitting at the window, sank into a deep sleep as Paul talked still longer. And being overcome by sleep, he fell down from the third story and was taken up dead. 10 But Paul went down and bent over him, and taking him in his arms, said, “Do not be alarmed, for his life is in him.” The fifth thing I want to look at is the power of…

1 Timothy 4 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching. The fourth thing we see is the Bible. The word of God was always declared in the assemblies, and this included the public reading of the old testament, as well as whatever apostolic letter had been received (Col. 4:16). For us at Origins, now you know why you hear…

Acts 20 7On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day, and he prolonged his speech until midnight. 8 There were many lamps in the upper room where we were gathered. 9 And a young man named Eutychus, sitting at the window, sank into a deep sleep as Paul talked still longer. And being…

Galatians 3 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave 7 nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. The second thing we see is that it was people, not a building, when they speak of the church and they were united. The church met in the evening because Sunday was not a holiday during which people were free from daily…
