I Am Your Very Great Reward

September 24, 2017 Series: Preaching Christ from Genesis

Topic: Christianity Explored Passage: Genesis 15:1–17:27, Colossians 2:1–2:15

We'll move the ball downfield this week!  I plan to cover chapters 15-17 - a new world record for Harry Stoliker's preaching career!  These three chapters are closely interrelated. My readings, study and mediation so far have yielded more deep jewels that point to God's glory and the majesty of our Christ! Genesis is no longer a string of unconnected, curious stories of ancient biblical history! It's a labyrinth of shining grace, wisdom and love from our Father! 
Chapter 15      God Establishes His Covenant: The Ceremony of the Dead Animals
                                Key Verses:  V.1; V.6
Chapter 16      Human Impatient: The Failed Shortcut  
                                  Key Verse:   V.13
Chapter 17     God Requires a Sign: The Sign of Circumcision 
                                   Key Verse:  V.10-13
Title:   "I Am Your Very Great Reward!"
Text:     Genesis 15:1-17:27
Scripture Reading: Colossians 2:1-15
Theme: God Himself is our very great reward in life and eternity! We don't need to contrive human schemes to bring His promises and blessings into our lives. We simply need to believe the truth of His covenant to us in Christ.
