Worship & Sacrifice: The Interplay :: PODCAST

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church on 5/28/2017 by Pastor Steve Shields

There’s a story in the Old Testament that details the unthinkable. Actually, there are a number of stories in the Old Testament that do that — one that you might not have thought of.

This old guy takes a young man to a mountain, ties him down on an altar, and proceeds to sacrifice him to God. How crazy does that sound to you? If it doesn’t sound crazy, you’ve probably heard to so many times that there’s a risk the story has lost its impact on your heart.

What is Abraham doing in Genesis 22? Was it premeditated murder? Or was God showing us something about the nature of worship? 

This podcast addresses that question.

PODCAST: LifeBuilding – Building a Life of Sacrifice

Presented on 8/7/2016 at Curwensville Alliance by Pastor Steve

There are many┬ásermon topics that Christians don’t generally flock to hear. A sermon on fasting. A sermon on self-denial. A sermon on sacrifice.

In fact, if it’s a sermon on sacrifice, some of the more cowardly may not even listen. They my just click elsewhere on the screen — and avoid the topic altogether.

In light of that, I will not mention the subject matter of this podcast.

Just listen. You’ll be glad you did.

~Pastor Steve
