Sermons on “Genesis”
Biblical “heroes” often act exactly the opposite to what we would have expected. For example, in this account of Abraham in Gerar.
But the story also shows how covenant blessing depends only on God’s faithfulness; not whether we deserve it.
Listen to the talk.
How should we respond when it seems that the state of the world is calling into question God’s promises?View Sermon
God shields us by His covenant through both life and death. As we unpack Genesis 15, we are taught how we relate to God, and how very small and insignificant we are, in relation to His Covenant. God gives Abram a promise, then a tangible sign, to which Abram responds in faith. And this is credited to him as righteousness. Today, God shields us though Christ (Luke 1: 67-80), and the Gospel (Romans 4 vs 16-25). God’s covenant stands, even if we don’t live long enough to see the fulfillment of the promise in this life.View Sermon
