Finding Community In Fellowship

March 20, 2011
The world takes notice when the people of God exhibit both love, and holiness. When the church demonstrates these qualities among its members, those outside the church can feel it. Today we take a close look at how Christian fellowship can become a powerful way to draw the lost to the Savior.

Someone has said, “No man is an island,” and all of us need others. The best place to find a sense of community is in the local church, the body of Christ. Here we learn to serve each other, and find in that service the door to deep personal fulfillment and joy.

How far would you go to prove your willingness to obey God? Abraham went as far as it may be possible to go when commanded to sacrifice his son Isaac, the son of promise, the son through whom the Messiah was to come. In a picture that foreshadowed the sacrifice of Jesus, this great test of faith marked the high point in the life of this great patriarch.

Abraham’s nephew Lot had a habit of making bad choices. Living in Sodom was one of them. But when Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by God, Lot was shown extraordinary mercy and his life was spared.

The journey of Abraham has taken him to the great trees of Mamre, where he encounters three mysterious visitors. On a day of high drama, Abraham and Sarah find themselves in the presence of God, and learn about the son they will soon have, and about judgment on the city of Sodom.

A covenant in the Bible indicates a solemn promise. In the book of Genesis, God made promises to Abraham, promises that were not conditional, promises of a land and posterity to occupy that land. In Genesis 17 God expands and clarifies his covenant with Abraham, and ultimately, Isaac is born as the son of promise.

Abraham had God’s promise of posterity, but he also had a problem: his wife’s apparent infertility. Rather than wait for God’s timing, he took his wife’s advice and had a son by their maid Hagar. In that one act was born the Arab-Israeli conflict still tearing apart the Middle East. Today we hear how God was faithful to both lines of Abraham’s seed, despite his rash action.

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer's teaching brings listeners to a deeper understanding of God and His purposes in our lives. "We have one single purpose [for the program]," says Pastor Lutzer, "We want people to be confronted with the reality of God and their need for personal obedience to His Word."

When a believer embarks on a life of faith, that believer will inevitably learn how to give. On his journey, Abraham met a mysterious man named Melchizidek, a priest of God Most High, and gave him a tenth of all the goods he had. This story in Genesis 14 is our focus today, as we learn how our faith impacts our resources.

Too many people these days operate on the premise that what’s mine is mine. They don’t see God as the real owner of all that they have. Abraham had the insight to know that God was in charge, and so he let his nephew Lot take first pick of some desirable real estate. Today: the expensive outcome of living by faith.

Almost everyone tells a little white lie from time to time. In some situations, that may seem to be the best course of action. Abraham thought so early on in his journey to the Promised Land. But as we’ll see, sin always has consequences, and Abraham had to learn some tough early lessons in the school of faith.
