Kingdom Impressions | Melvin Manickavasagam

Scripture Reference: Daniel 7:1-14
Christians may not be those who are uninformed about the story of Christmas but may over time become unimpressed by its significance. For those who have heard the story of Jesus’ advent, perhaps we also need to see it for what it truly is. Strange as it might seem, Daniel’s apocalyptic vision is not a bad place to do just that.

Sermon Points:

  • The “Beastly” Rule of Earthly Kingdoms (vv. 1-8)
  • The HeavenlyRule of God’s Kingdom (vv. 9-10)
  • The Warrior-King of God’s Kingdom (vv. 11-14)

Mercy in the Wilderness

Scripture Reference: Numbers 21:4-9

The metaphor of a pilgrim or sojourner is commonly applied to the life of God’s people, and often brings us to a place of weariness and discontent along the way. What can we learn from this episode during Israel’s wilderness wanderings?

Sermon Points:

  • Discontent Misdirected
  • Discontent Redirected
  • God’s Sufficiency for the Discontented
