November 13, 2011: Genesis 11:1-9 “Seeking Glory”

Big Idea:  Because God exists, we must appropriately respond to Him.

November 6, 2011: Genesis 9 “A Life of Mercy in a Fallen World”

Big idea:  God’s mercy toward fallen sinners is to be extended by His children to other fallen sinners.

Or as Jesus taught us, “If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.” (Luke 6:32-36, English Standard Version)

October 30, 2011: Genesis 6-8 “A Flood of Judgment and Mercy”

Big Idea:  Extravagant grace amid judgement leads to whole-hearted (complete) obedience.

So too, the structure of Genesis 6-8 points to Jesus!

  1. The LORD chooses one man to be saved by grace. (6:1-8)
  2. The LORD chooses one man to save the world through obedience. (6:9-7:24)
  3. The LORD chooses one man’s family to renew the world. (8:1-22)
In Christ, we have grace incarnate. In Christ, his obedience brings salvation to the world. In Christ, a new family is made to bring life, hope, and healing to thew world.

October 23, 2011: Genesis 4-5 “Wanderers or Worshippers”

Big Idea:  Abel’s blood calls for justice.  Jesus blood calls for forgiveness

Preaching outline:

  • Worship without faith brings destruction (Genesis 4:1-8).
  • Judgment without faith brings expulsion (Genesis 4:9-16).
  • Life without faith brings corruption (Genesis 4:17-5:32).
