Look for Blessing in the Right Place
Where is the good, blessed life really found? In Genesis 13-14, Abram’s life reveals the paradox that blessing is found in humility over pride, faith over sight, and giving over grabbing.
Trust God More Than Yourself
Now that God has promised to bless Abram and make him a blessing to all nations, the question is whether Abram, and we, will trust God or ourselves.
Live by Faith
God promises to bless all the nations of the world by choosing one man named Abraham to father one people that will be a blessing to all people. Through the life of Abraham we learn how to live by faith in Abraham’s true offspring, Jesus Christ.
Blessing to All Peoples
When we come to Genesis 11:27, humanity has been divided into nations, all of which are in rebellion against God. However, in this passage God launches His plan to bless all those divided peoples through a blessed people, a people we must leave home to become a part of.
Fill the Earth with God’s Glory
In the final sermon of Genesis 1-11 we focus on the end for which God created humanity and what it will take to accomplish it.
God’s Purpose Prevails
God created humanity to fill the earth with His image for His glory, but our desire for self-promotion and self-preservation gets in the way. But by coming down, God ensures His purpose will prevail.
The God of Second Chances
The God who gives second chances – Genesis 8:20 – 9:29
The Remaking of Everything
Genesis began with God making everything and quickly proceeded to sin ruining everything. But God is a God not only of second chances, but much more: God remade everything.
Remaining steadfast through this life
The Righteous Preserved
In a culture with so many problems, is there any way to not only survive, but thrive? In this passage we see the only way it is possible: God preserves the righteous.
Sin Ruins Relationships
In Genesis 4:1-6:8 we learn how breakdown in our vertical relationship with the Lord leads to breakdown in our horizontal relationships with one another and the only hope that really matters.
Culture formed and Ruined
Humans create culture; it’s part of what it means to be human. The issue is what kind of culture? When God’s rule is rejected, sin rules. It ruins culture by creating a culture of death.
