Human Means for Divine Ends

Faith Life Series Gfx_16x9 Title

I continued our “Faith Life” series this weekend at Eastbrook Church by looking at how impatience can lead us to take matters into our own hands. In Genesis 16, Abraham and Sarah struggle with their desire to make God’s promises become a reality by coming up with their own plans. Unfortunately, it leads to a cascading series of problems. Still, God shows His grace all through this situation. The central aim of this message was about waiting in faith on the Lord.

The outline and video file for the message are below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here. You can access the entire series of messages from the “Faith Life” series here. You can also visit Eastbrook Church on VimeoFacebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The Commitment of God

Faith Life Series Gfx_16x9 TitleWe have all seen or heard about dramatic commitments between people, but what happens when God commits to us as people?

This weekend at Eastbrook Church we continued our “Faith Life” series by looking at the commitment of God to Abraham in Genesis 15.  Of course, the question we have to ask is: ‘what does God’s commitment to Abraham here mean for us today?’ That led us onward to Romans 4:23-5:2, where Paul references Genesis 15 in relation to the hope found in Jesus Christ.

The outline and video file for the message are below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here. You can access the entire series of messages from the “Faith Life” series here. You can also visit Eastbrook Church on VimeoFacebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Fumbling with Faith

Faith Life Series Gfx_16x9 TitleWhat happens when we have significant failure in our life? Can we still move forward as people of faith?

This weekend at Eastbrook Church I explored these questions as we looked at two ‘epic fail’ moments in Abraham’s life. This was the second part of our “Faith Life” series, which is a journey around themes of faith from the life of Abraham. The main theme of the message was that God is faithful even when we are failures. The texts we looked at are the parallels in Genesis 12:10-20 and 20:1-18.

The outline and video file for the message are below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here. You can access the entire series of messages from the “Faith Life” series here. You can also visit Eastbrook Church on VimeoFacebook, Twitter and Instagram.

God Calling

Faith Life Series Gfx_16x9 TitleWhat does it mean to really live a life of faith in our everyday lives? How does it begin and how do we sustain that life?

This weekend at Eastbrook Church we explored these questions in the first week of our series, “Faith Life.” This series is a journey around themes of faith from the life of Abraham. This week, we began by looking at the very beginnings of Abraham’s story in Genesis 11:27-32, as well as the pivotal calling of God he receives in Genesis 12:1-9.
