16 Verses: ” The Suffering Servant:” Isaiah 53:6

Pastor Chris Garrison continues his "16 Verses" Sermon series teaching from Isaiah 53:6. The text, in context, contains a series of seemingly contradictory statements. Yet the juxtapositions create a clear structure that defines what the servant is: a divine substitution for the sacrifice needed to pay the price for the sins of Adam and Eve that are transferred to us and that we carry. The suffering servant's humiliation leads to exaltation and brings us peace as he bears our sins.Why? Because GOD LOVES YOU!

16 Verses: The King Beloved — 2 Samuel 7:1-22

The theme for Pastor Chris Garrison's lesson this week, launched from The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses, is that God, who is the hero and central figure of our story, wants to fulfill our hearts' desires. But we learn that we are first made to delight in theLord, and then he will give us the desires of our heart. God gave Israel David as their king. He wanted to build a house for God, but God shows him that He desires to build His kingdom and fulfill His promises through the kingdom He would establish through David, not a house of cedar. Through David, we receive Jesus, the true fulfillment of our hearts.

16 Verses: Redemption

Pastor Chris Garrison Continues preaching on our place in God's story, launched from The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verse. The story so far: God created a kingdom. Adam and Eve rejected the call to represent God in this kingdom which lead to sin and death. But God promised to defeat the serpent through the seed of Abraham, specifically Judah's royal seed, by giving a royal covenant to the world. Because all people were guilty and deserved death, the sacrifices of the Mosaic law revealed more clearly their need for a substitute.

16 Verses: “Broken People and the Perfect Plan” — Genesis 49:10

Pastor Chris Garrison Continues launching his sermons from THE WHOLE STORY OF THE BIBLE IN 16 VERSES. The story so far: God created a kingdom, and He is the King, but He made human beings to represent Him  in that kingdom. Adam and Eve rejected this call, which led to sin and death. But God promised to defeat the serpent through the seed of the woman, who is also the seed of Abraham. Through Abraham's family, the covenant blessing would come  to the world.
The theme for today's sermon form Genesis 49:10 is that God fits BROKEN people into His PERFECT plan. We see that God uses imperfect people to fulfill His plan. It is through Abraham's family, and specifically, Judah's royal seed, that the covenant blessing would come to the world.
