Pastor Philip Miller

The Light Shines In A Prison

October 9, 2022

How do we share the good news in hostile places? Because Paul and Silas believed the gospel was the power of God, they weren’t intimidated as they shared the gospel in Philippi. In this message, we unlock two motivations to witness for Christ: faith and joy. The gospel can change any heart—like a prison door flinging open.

When God is not our priority, our self-absorption destroys both us and our relationship with Him. When God told Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, his only son of the promise, the only fitting response was obedience. In this message, we ascend the mountain with Abraham and Isaac to find three lessons about worshipful sacrifice. Are we putting the Lord first?

Even if we say we do not love the world, we can be tempted to violate our consciences. Lot compromised because his faith was too weak to stand against Sodom’s relentless debauchery. He lost his testimony, his family, and his character. In this message, we apply lessons from Lot’s failure. Is God faithful even when we fall hard?

Christians are called to have an impact on the world. When Abraham’s neighboring cities faced fire and brimstone, he interceded for them. In this message, we contemplate lessons on prayer for others, for our cities, and for our families. Despite Abraham’s mediation, the cities were destroyed. Did his prayer make a difference?

When God is silent, we often doubt His promises. After the birth of Ishmael, Abraham did not hear from God for years. In this message, we discover three lessons about the desires of the flesh and true submission to God. We cannot live as a child of promise and a child of the flesh at the same time.

We might be the victim of our own decisions or others. Abraham and Sarah tried to engineer their circumstances so their maid, Hagar, would bear a son—an heir. In this message, we look at God’s command and promise to Hagar, who was the victim of the decision. People do not have the last word. In our despair and our extremities, God sees and intervenes.

How do we know God is working in us to bring about His purpose? In Genesis 15, God makes a covenant with Abraham—entirely based on His own word. But Abraham is obsessed with the problem of the promise. In this message, we are invited to a covenant without conditions. God says He will do what He promises—our eternities depend on it.

The decisions we make—even about money—have eternal consequences. After an unusual victory, Abraham is given a choice of allegiances between two kings. In this message, we perform a heart check on what possesses us. Are we living like God owns everything or do our decisions and bank accounts say otherwise?

“Respectable sins” are often the most dangerous in families. In this message, we meet two men—Abraham and his nephew, Lot—in the midst of a dispute about the land. Let’s learn from the examples of Abraham and Lot why we do not have to manipulate circumstances or insist on our own rights. God gives His best to those who entrust their future and legacy to Him.

Can we trust God to take care of us? Abraham was chosen by God to leave the comforts of Ur, going to a land he had never seen. Along the way, Abraham bent the truth to save his own skin, telling Egypt’s Pharaoh that his wife was his sister. In this message, we identify four lessons at the junction of trusting or backsliding. Backsliding always has more burdens than blessings. 
August 7, 2022
The losses, challenges, and heartaches God brings on life’s journey reveal we were made for another world. God called Abraham out of Ur of the Chaldees, promising to make of him a great nation. In this message, we find three lessons from Abraham’s first steps of faith that prepare us to trust God with our own journey. Are you living and longing for eternity?
