Hollywood is famous for their sequels. There are seven rocky movies. There will soon be ten Star Wars movies. Everyone loves a good sequel. In Genesis 26, we find Isaac's life is a sequel of his father Abraham. He faces many of the same tests, temptations and conflicts as well as enjoys the same blessings. Isaac is only the first of a long line of men and women that live by faith. We are part of that line today. Join us as we learn to walk by faith as we face the same challenges as those who came before us.

Only hours after receiving the prestigious Crufts Rosette award for good behavior at a dog show, Eddie—an Akita, lunged at a nearby woman sinking his teeth into her knee cap and hand leaving her with serious injuries. His disobedience led to a costly lawsuit for his owners. While obedience can lead to honor, disobedience leads to disaster. As we continue our study of Genesis 22, we learn about the blessings of obeying God’s word in the life of Abraham, especially when it is a hard to do.

An alcoholic swears off the bottle. Three days later he grabs another case of beer at the corner gas station. A husband looses his temper with his wife again. He hates himself for it. Why does he keep losing his temper? Why can't he change? As Christians, we become frustrated when we want to obey Christ but we keep drifting away. Where does the power come from for lasting change? In the second half of John 14, Jesus introduces his disciples, and us, to the Holy Spirit and the crucial role he plays in changing our life.

When was the last time you looked in a mirror? For most of us, it wasn't more than a few hours ago. There is another kind of mirror that gives us an even truer picture. It is the mirror of God's Word. Instead of showing us what we look like on the outside, it reveals the truth about what is on our inside. In this message, learn to look good on the outside and inside of your life.
