How Do You Think About Sin?

Genesis 19 teaches us a lot about sin. We can see the gravity, corruption, blindness and damage of sin, all in one chapter. Greater yet, we can see the escape from sin as well. On this week before Christmas we recognize that sin of Sodom was not in their sexual orientation, but their God orientation and that this sinful problem is the whole reason Christmas was a necessity.

How Do You Respond?

In this lesson we examine how Abraham responded to God's Presence, His Promise and His Plan. In the process, we ask ourselves, how do We respond to God's Presence, His Promise and His Plan? After all, how we respond says a lot about both our character and our relationship with Him.

What do You see?

When you turn to Genesis 18-19, what captures your attention first and foremost, Sodom and Gomorrah? As an introduction to these two chapters, we ask the question, Is it Us vs Them...or is it all about Him. We want to make sure we're seeing the right things.

The Other Side of the Coin

Genesis 15 revealed to us that God covenants with us and our response is to have faith in Him and His Word. When we come to Genesis 17 we see that a relationship of obedience sets the stage for God to pour our the blessings of His Covenant on us. That's the other side of the coin; God's covenantal commitment to us expects a response of relationship that obeys.

My Greatest Ally

As we turn to the 2nd part of Chapter 16 we see that whether or not we see it or sense it...our God is our greatest ally. We see that when Hagar fled from Abram and Sarai she wasn't looking for God, but God found her and revealed Himself to be her Greatest Ally.

My Greatest Enemy

The first six verses of chapter 16 demonstrate for us that when it comes to failure, we're our own worst enemy. This choices Sarai, Abram and Hagar all make create a situation that's far worse than it needed to be. It's easy to see that our greatest enemy is often not Satan, but ourselves.

A God Who Covenants

We serve a most amazing God, not just because of His character but also because He has chosen to covenant with us. In chapter 15 of Genesis we see God's covenant with Abram and through it, see the New Covenant that Jesus Christ has made with us.

From Seizing to Ceding

The separation of Abram and Lot says much about Abram as a peacemaker. When laid next to chapter 12, we'll find that it also says much about Abram's recovery from his sinful wipe out in Egypt. As we study, we find that Abram returns to Canaan a changed man, a man who has moved from seizing control from God to ceding control to God.

Cede or Seize?

As we study the story of Abram going to Egypt in Genesis 12, we learn a very important lesson; The fastest way to compromise your faith is to try and take control. To put it positively we can say that, Following in faith means ceding control….not just of the destination, but also the route, companions, experiences, sights, struggles, delays, detours and difficulties.

Abraham, Seed of the Woman

As we begin a study on the life of Abraham we find another Genealogy, one that connects Abraham with Shem, the son of Noah. We find is that these Genealogies reveal to us that the Plan of God is just fine, that line of the Seed of the Woman is safe and remains unbroken.
