Meditate on these scriptures with me --

Genesis 25:19-34

Matthew 13:1-9,18-23

How are you each of the characters in the Genesis story?

How are you each type of soil in Jesus' parable of the sower? And what type of sower are you?

Who do you think you are really following?

How free are you, really?

How ready are you to intervene?

This week's sermon focuses in on Abraham and Sarah casting out Hagar and Ishmael, their desperation in the wilderness and God's deliverance. It comes at a time when we see so many who are suffering and mistreated in the world around us. How does God bring deliverance? Sometimes through little miracles. But much more often through other people who are moved to come alongside as allies. 

The Holy Spirit brings new life, not death. Take hold of the Holy Spirit that Jesus has given to us and to all the world!
