What’s in a Name? Sermon | Pastor Steve

Passage: Isaiah 49, Matthew 10:29-31

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. And even the hairs of your head are all counted. So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows. -Matthew 10:29-31

In scripture we learn that the God who created the universe is not transcendent, unable to be reached, far from us. Instead our God is one who makes themselves known to us, a personal God who knows each of us by name. We worship a God who loved us so much that God became human in the person of Jesus Christ so that we may be in close relationship with God. This Sunday, Pastor Steve explores what it means to be named by God and redeemed in grace.
