The God Who Sees Genesis 16:1-14

by

In our world, it can be so tempting to rush on by people, to look past our neighbor, or even worse, to look down upon them. It comes out of our busyness. It comes out of our fear. It comes out of our own wondering whether anyone actually sees us. But in our lives where we are constantly rushing, these words from Hagar should give us pause. For God came to the wilderness. God saw the person, and not just the slave. God called her by name. The God we serve is El-Roi, the God who sees.

Hope in a Hopeless Place Jonah 3:1-10

by

The story of Jonah invites us to have hope. It invites us to have hope in ourselves. It reminds us even when we sin, even when we hurt others and hurt our relationship with God, even when we wonder what value do I have, God still says back to us, “You are made in my image. You are made for good. That goodness is still there in you.”
