Ryan preached his first sermon in French a couple weeks ago. A lot of people, myself included, were very proud of him and he got a lot of encouraging feedback. He spent a good 2 months preparing, studying the passage and coming up with his ideas and outline, writing the whole thing in French, and practicing it so he could know it backwards and forwards. I wanted to share a little clip with you in case you wanted to see him in action.
The message was on Genesis 12:1–3
“The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.””
The main points of the message were:
- God has a plan to fix the world
- His plan works through a people
- Through Christ, we can join God’s plan to be a blessing to the world
