Father Abraham had many sons

If you grew up going to church, you might have grown up singing this song:

“Father Abraham, had many sons, many sons had Father Abraham. I am one of them, and so are you, so let’s all praise the Lord.” 

And then various body parts would start in motion. Right arm. Left arm. Right foot. Left foot. And so on. 

While we don’t know much about Abraham’s dancing ability, we do know that he is known as the Father of all who belong to God by faith. He’s kind of a big deal. But just like what we saw last week with Noah, we often overlook many of Abraham’s faults. And he had many! But the good news is, we have much to learn from Abraham’s faults, and the gracious God that worked through him anyway. I’d encourage you to spend some time reading Genesis 12-25 before Sunday. When you do, you’ll see that our gracious God’s grace is greater than all our sin—even Abraham’s! 

We’ll meet this Sunday at 9:28 for English and 11 for Chinese. Please join us in person, or join us online at:

Remember too that in February we’ll be switching to YouTube as our streaming host. You’ll be able to access it through the TCBC website. Stay tuned for more details!

I’d also like to put in another plug for our Friday night virtual fellowship. We’re going to be discussing last week’s sermon on Noah. Let me know if you need the link, and join us Friday night online at 7!

Until then, by God’s grace, may you follow Him through your week by faith!

See you soon!

Pastor Jason
