Hi Peeps!

This Sunday for our congregational scripture reading we will be reading Genesis 12:1-3. 
"Now the LORD said to Abram, 'Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.'"  

The calling of Abraham is one of the greatest and most beautiful displays of God’s sovereign grace and mercy in the Bible.  Two-thousand years earlier, God made a promise to Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:15 that he would one day send a Messiah to deliver his people from the bondage of sin and Satan.  Toward fulfilling that promise and setting in motion the plan of redemption, the calling of Abraham is the first step in a journey of a thousand miles which, two-thousand years later, ultimately culminates in the coming of Christ who is the seed of Abraham and through whom “all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Gal. 3:7-9).  Let us praise our glorious God and King for his mercy, faithfulness, and love! 

See you Sunday!

Genisis 5:8-11

Hi everyone!

This Sunday, for our congregational scripture reading we will be reading together Genesis 11:5-8. 


“And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. And the LORD said, ‘Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another's speech.’ So the LORD dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.”  


That God confused the languages was an act of grace and mercy.  He saw that had mankind been allowed to remain together and continue to work together, the sin and wickedness upon the earth would grow exponentially, which would have led to another swift end of humanity as God had done with the flood, only through a different means, of course.  Nevertheless, the promise of Genesis 3:15 that God would someday send a Messiah to crush the head of the Serpent could not be fulfilled should God continue to destroy humanity.  Thus, God confuses the languages and scatters the nations in order to bring about the fulfillment of the protoevangelium—the promise of Gen. 3:15.

See you Sunday!
