Current Sermon Series: Numbers

The book of Numbers records the stories and the people of Israel. Even today, we do the same thing, too. This is why we search family genealogies and have family stories we tell at family reunions. People are precious – and can, at times, be frustrating – to us. The same is true with God. How God deals with His people can help us learn how to relate to others.

The Ten(der) Commandments

One and Only

Idolatry is when we take a good thing and turn it into a God thing which is a bad thing. Why is this a bad thing? Because it is an affront to the true God. But Isaiah also reminds us that we desire out of an idol what it can never give: help and fulfillment. Idols always disappoint. God, however, always keeps His promises.
