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.
This week we are studying Genesis 3:1-6. In the interaction between the serpent (Satan) & Eve we see the first temptation of humankind. In their conversation we receive an amazing picture of the nature of temptation and the subsequent entrance of sin into God’s creation. If we are to battle against sin & temptation the way that Scripture calls us to we would do well to understand more clearly how temptations works and what the extent of sin is. Join us as we explore these topics together this evening.
Tonight we begin Gensis 3 by looking at verse one. In this verse we are introduced to the serpent. This serpent is described by the author as “crafty” and as created by God. Who is this serpent? How are we to understand Moses’ introduction of this character? Join us as we explore these questions that will lead us to a significant conversation on Satan and his schemes.
The very first institution that God institutes is marriage. In Genesis 2:21-24 we find the very first marriage instituted by God. What is God’s view of marriage? How does God’s view of marriage align with our culture’s view of marriage? How does God’s view of marriage align with the church’s view of marriage? God’s design and desire for marriage may be grander than we ever imagined. Join us as we study Genesis 2 and the rest of Scripture to try and better understand how we are called to view and understand marriage.
The issue of gender and gender roles is a significant one in our culture today. The Church is not immune to this topic and has varying opinions on gender and the roles of men and women. In Genesis 2:18-22 we are confronted with the topic of gender and the roles of men and women. What does it mean that God created woman to be a helper to Adam? What does it mean that God made her “fit for him?” Are men and women equal in God’s eyes? Did God create men and women for different roles? Join us as we study Genesis 2:18-22 and discover why God created woman.
Tonight our passage is Genesis 2:8-17. As we study this passage we will be looking at the Garden of Eden. What do we learn about the garden in tonights text? What do we learn about God? How does Eden point us to a greater reality and promise that is to come. Join us as we look at this powerful passage.
Tonight we look at Genesis 2:4-7 and the beginning of a seemingly second creation account. In tonight’s passage we see that Moses is once again trying emphasize what was the crown jewel of God’s creative work. Join us as we study this passage and see what it means for us that mankind is creation’s masterpiece.
We look at Genesis 2:1-3 tonight and we come to the topic of Sabbath. While the idea of Sabbath has long been debated and there was probably no other category of the Law that created more burden than the idea of Sabbath, we must ask ourselves is this what God intended when He rested on the seventh day? Join us tonight as we explore these three verses and seek to understand what God is doing and what it looks like for us to have a God-centered view of Sabbath rest.
