We Are Controlled by Our Lust for Control

Bible Text: Genesis 3:8-24 | Preacher: David Ball | Series: Lent 2018, The Brokenness that Ensues from Our Sin

In this sermon, Pastor David Ball shifts his Lenten focus from the vertical relationships between God and His people to the horizontal plane where we relate to those around us. Picture kindergartners playing happily together on the playground. An inspiring sight, right? Look a little closer. One child is poking another in the eye. One shoving another off the jungle gym. It is in reality, a war zone, a reflection of how we really live, always seeking to be top dog, the one in control. During this Lenten season David asks us to relinquish that control to Jesus.

The Scripture Lessons for the Day were:

Genesis 3:8-24
Romans 8:18-25
John 13:31-35

Additionally Pastor David emphasized:

Isaiah 11:1-9
Hosea 2:18-19

The Hide and Seek of Sin

Bible Text: Genesis 3:8-24 | Preacher: David Ball | Series: Lent 2018, The Brokenness that Ensues from Our Sin

Recalling the popular childhood game of Hide and Seek, Pastor David Ball describes how the game paints a picture of Redemption. We hide and God seeks us out. Pastor David urges us to approach this interaction with God like toddlers playing that childhood game. May we tire of the hiding quickly and exclaim to Our God, “Here I am!”

The Scripture Lessons for the Day were:

Genesis 3:8-24
Isaiah 59:1-8
John 17:20-26
