The Preached Word – Pastor Tyrone Gordon
Sermon Title: “I Am Not A Victim”
Scripture: Genesis 21:8-19
He frees us from fear!
Pastor G has a way of helping you get a new perspective on an old story. The story of Hagar is so powerful when told as part of Sarah and Abraham’s story. But when the focus is basically on Hagar and Ishmael, then it becomes even more so. Hagar was dismissed from the camp and went off into the wilderness to cry and moan. But God! Yes, God took matters into His own hands and sent her back letting her know that she was not a victim, but a conqueror.
The three take away points:
1. Stop feeling sorry for yourself!
2. You are not alone!
3. You are more than conqueror!
It was a sermon that gave hope and a new understanding on trusting in God. Please join us next Sunday at 10 a.m. and hear another timely, and inspiring, message.
