The Flood: Judgement and Grace
This Sunday we’ll tackle one of the most popularized scenes in the Bible—the flood account in Genesis 6:9–8:22. It’s a longer passage than we usually cover in one sermon, so I really encourage you to read it before we gather on Sunday. The challenge in studying such a familiar passage is that we are prone to sanitize the scene by reducing it to a morality tale. But this passage is rich with important truths about the heart of the gospel and the character of God (most of which probably won't be in the script of Russell Crowe’s upcoming movie).
I’m looking forward to digging into this incredible text with you Sunday! We’ll also have the privilege to pray for ten families as they dedicate their children this Sunday. Invite a friend. Pray for God to encourage, convict, and give new life in Christ!
Grace and peace,
