Scripture text: Genesis 16:1-16               Preacher: Rev John Hawthorne                Date: 30 November 2014

Genesis Chapter 16 includes the account of the fugitive and pregnant Hagar receiving comfort and assurance from the angel of the Lord. Mindful of the love and concern for her shown by God, Hagar thereafter referred to Him as “the God who sees me” (El-Roi). This sermon develops the theme of the omnipresent,all-seeing God, and considers the consequences of those attributes of God for the Christian and for the unbeliever.
