How should we respond when it seems that the state of the world is calling into question God’s promises?View Sermon
This week, we learn that the Lord’s Supper is a Covenant meal. In it, God is ratifying His Communion with us. It is also a Covenant sign. Just like the rainbow in Genesis 9 was a visible sign of an invisible promise, Communion is a reminder that God’s promise of salvation is real, and still in effect.View Sermon
The Lord’s promise Abram to undo the curse, not only in his life, but for the whole world. Even though Abram dies before receiving the fulfillment of this promise, we are reminded that, through Christ, we can be a part of His family so, we should not fix our eyes on what we can see, but rather on what the Lord has promised.View Sermon
God made a covenant with Abram and promised that He would give Abram a name, a people and a land.

In Genesis 4 we see the tension between the need for God to punish sin and the correct response to sin when it is at our door. In the same way we would avoid a hungry lion.

By sending Jesus to stop the cycle of sin in it’s tracks and to start reversing the damage in our lives through His love.
