We closed out Rise and Fall yesterday at LifePoint, concluding the series with the temptation narrative in Matthew. You can get all of the sermon content, audio or video (and notes), on our free App or at our website. Here is a brief summary of the texts and main ideas of each sermon.
|Genesis 1:1: God created all things and all of it is His.|
|Genesis 1:2-5: God, who separated light from darkness, sent Jesus to do that in you.|
|Genesis 1:6-25: The gospel confronts us because creation informs us.|
|Genesis 1:26-31: We were created by God and for God.|
|Genesis 2:1-17: We rise and fall with the man between the trees.|
|Genesis 2:18-25: Marriage is God-defined because it is God-designed.|
|Genesis 3:1-15: Our sin shattered paradise, so God sent a Savior.|
|Genesis 3:7-24: The King is coming to put the pieces back together again.|
|Matthew 4:1-11: Jesus didn’t fall, so in Him we can rise.|
Next up, we’ll be kicking off a 3-week series in November called To Be The Church, where we focus on the mission of LifePoint as we learn the gospel, live the gospel, and lead others to the gospel. We’ll be visiting Acts 2, Jeremiah 29, and Psalm 96 for To Be The Church. Our Advent series this year, The Hour Has Come, will close out the year. We’re also praying through our next book study, slated to start in January. If you’d like to join your pastors and elders in prayer on this, we’re studying and praying through 1 Thessalonians. It’s an amazing book, and likely the direction we’ll be headed to kick off 2015.
