What a Way to Go!

Genesis 25:1-10

Airs: October 30 - November 3

Many people expect the twilight years of their lives to be characterized by four “uns”—unproductive, unhappy, unhealthy, and unfulfilling. How unfortunate! We don’t find that kind of thinking among the great men and women in God’s “Hall of Faith.” For them, life remained meaningful right up to the end, filled with important decisions, joyful events, and purposeful involvements. As Abraham neared the sunset of his life, he clearly didn’t waste his retirement years sitting around feeling sorry for himself. Instead, he lived his last years to their fullest. From his example, we can learn a lot about ending well and finishing strong.

Abraham: One Nomad's Amazing Journey of Faith


  • November 4 - November 6 Portrait of a Hero...Warts and Everything

    When Abraham passed down the account of his life, he didn’t carefully hide his roughness, pimples, and warts. When God’s Spirit moved Moses to include the history of Abraham in the book of Genesis, the uncomfortable, embarrassing, shameful, and downright sinful episodes of the Patriarch’s life weren’t censored. The biblical writers made no attempt to airbrush, smooth over, or cover up the truth to fit some glamorized version of this hero of the faith.

  • November 7 - November 11 Conversations with Chuck: Abraham: Ravi Zacharias and Chuck Swindoll

    Abraham’s life story flies in the face of modern-day conventions of safety. He pulled up roots with his family; abandoned his land, inheritance, and comfort; set out on a rugged journey at what we consider retirement age; and believed God for a miracle child even in his and Sarah’s old age. Abraham followed God and forsook comfort, predictability, and earthly logic in order to obey Him.

    Abraham was quite a man of faith!

  • November 12 - November 14 Reaching Our World

    In the first chapter of the book of Acts, the apostles were gathered in Jerusalem, waiting and even a bit confused. Would the kingdom of Israel be restored now that Jesus had risen from the dead? What was the nature of the kingdom of God? What did Jesus mean when He said, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you”?

  • November 17 - November 19 Birthing the Church

    Acts 2 marks the successful delivery of more than three thousand “baby” Christians! It was the miraculous, Spirit-fuelled birth of the church. What an adventure! A large gathering of people witnessed the incredible, supernatural power of the Holy Spirit and heard the life-changing Gospel message preached by Peter and the other apostles. Birthday: Pentecost.

  • November 20 - November 24 Touching Others' Lives

    The apostles certainly had their share of adventure! After receiving the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room on the day of Pentecost, they embarked on the journey of a lifetime. Empowered and emboldened by the Spirit, they preached the Gospel and performed extraordinary miracles, touching others’ lives as they went. Let’s take a look at how they effectively ministered to others so we can discover some positive principles to use in our own lives.
