Trust Fall (Week 6): “Sexy Solutions or Old-Fashioned Faith”

Cameron Sapaugh, Theology Student – Genesis 16:1-16

Redemption Bible Church continues its examination of the story of Abraham in the sermon series entitled “Trust Fall.” This week we are led by Cameron Sapaugh as we dive into Genesis 16. Through the actions of Abraham, Sarai, and Hagar we see what can happen when people try to take shortcuts. Instead of trusting God with our problems, we see how taking things into our own hands and coming up with our own solutions can create strife for us and those around us. We also see Hagar’s devotion; her willingness to be guided by her faith. She understands that God sees and hears what we’re going through. She’s an example we can learn from.
