Preaching Abraham (5)

This short series on Abraham has already challenged us by big ideas about God and his world. Old Testament stories are not primarily about individuals, but God's work with and through individuals. The next sermon looks at Gen 13:1-18, & Gen 14:8-16 where Abraham is back on track after his deceit in Egypt. But see what happens when conflict emerges and choices have to be made.

My sermon's main impact:
By God's grace my sermon will say: in conflict God gives choices, with some battles to avoid and other battles to fight.
And my sermon will do: challenge us to avoid wrong battles and fight right ones today.

It's a busy week -please pray as I continue to prepare.
