Tonight we are studying Genesis 6:5-8. In these verses we see the doctrine of sin beautifully put before us. How are we to understand sin? What is sin’s extent in our lives and in the world? What does total depravity mean? Join us as we explore these questions and see how a right doctrine of sin impacts of view of God, the Gospel and ourselves so powerfully.
Tonight we are looking at Genesis 5:18-24 and the person of Enoch. While Scripture doesn’t tell us much about Enoch it tells us enough for Enoch to be see as one of the great men of faith in Scripture. There is much we can learn and should emulate in this man. Join us as we look at Enoch and see how his life challenges our own lives today.
Tonight we are studying Genesis 5 and the genealogy from Adam to Noah. For many of us these seem like throw-away verses in the Bible and they feel like they hold little meaning for us today. When we understand the purpose that passages like these serve, though, they become incredibly rich and powerful. Join us as we look at why Genesis 5 is in God’s Word and what it teaches us about our faithful God.
This week we are studying Genesis 4:10-16. In these verses we have the punishment levied against Cain by God and Cain’s response to this discipline. In these verses we see a powerful picture of a gracious God and stubborn man. In Cain we see one wanting to play the victim and ignoring God’s grace and opportunities for repentance. Join us as we look at our passage for the week and see how allowing ourselves to feel like the victim blinds us to the grace of our good God.
We are studying Genesis 4:1-10 this evening. The classic story of Cain & Abel is familiar to most of us, but what we actually find in this story is a powerful example of what it looks like to come to God properly and with a right heart. We also see the dangers of allowing your heart to become hardened and bringing an empty offering to God. Join us as we study these verses and discover the vivid images and challenges that they put before us.
Tonight we look at Genesis 3:16-21. In these verses we find the beginning of God’s redemptive work. In Romans 8:28-30 we find Paul’s “ordo salutis” (“order of salvation”). The Reformers reaffirmed an eight-step Biblical order of salvation. In our verses in Genesis tonight we see the framework for the beginning of this ordo salutis. Join us as we see very clearly that the beautiful doctrine of justification by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone was always God’s plan to save His people.
Tonight we arrive at Genesis 3:15 and perhaps the most pivotal verse in the entire Old Testament. In this verse we find the first Messianic prophecy and the first sign of hope since Adam & Eve’s fall. As we study this verse we first look at the conflict that is infused into creation by God Himself. What we find, though, is that in the midst of great conflict the grace of God abounds. Join us as we look at this verse and implications of this verse both then and now.
We all have some understanding of what a courtroom trial looks like. Whether we’ve had personal experiences or we’ve seen a TV show or movie we have some concept of what the scene entails. In Genesis 3:10-14 we have a courtroom scene of sorts. In our study this evening we will look at how this trial parallels our own judgment day trial to come and how we have much to learn concerning that day. Join us as we look at these important verses.
Tonight we are looking at Genesis 3:8-9. In tonight’s sermon we look at how foolish it is that Adam & Eve felt that they had to hide and how this foolishness is clear evidence of just how far they’ve fallen. We then look at how God’s response to their sin and shame is to pursue them. The tragedy of The Fall and the clarity of God’s abundant grace is in full view as we study these two verses. Join us.
Tonight we begin looking at Genesis 3:7-14. As we begin to unpack this passage of Scripture we start by looking at the immediate effects of sin’s entrance into God’s good creation. Too often in the Church we have a low view of sin. This results in a low view of the Gospel. We must understand the painful and perpetual effects of sin. We must also understand that instead of running away from the emotional effects of sin we must embrace them in order that they are healed at the cross. Join us as we look at this important topic.
