Preaching this Sunday

I’m preaching this Sunday to the morning congregation for the first time. It’s been helpful at exposing sin in me! The morning group is much bigger than the evening group and the desire to make a name for myself (and be seen as someone who preaches well) is strong.

Ironic really, given I’m preaching Genesis 12. In Babel man tried to make a name for himself, and his work was rendered futile. Then in Genesis 12 God graciously promises to make Abram’s name great. We can inherit the blessing of Abram through Jesus, so in Christ I already have a great name. I don’t need to make one. Hopefully I’ll remember the gospel in my preparations!
