IN REFLECTION

This past Sunday we looked at Genesis 17, where God communicates covenant obligations to Abraham, gives him the promise of a covenant Son, and establishes the sign of covenant faithfulness. From this story we learn some important lessons about how the promise of God gives us a new identity, creates a new community, and calls for holy living. Let's live this week as a holy people who find their identity in the gospel promises of God.

IN PREPARATION

PREPARING TO HEAR

This week's sermon will be from Genesis 18. Take a few minutes to read the passage and consider the following questions:

  • How does the identity of the mysterious visitors unfold throughout this story? (Hint, check 19:1 also).
  • Why do you think the promise of a son through Sarah next year is repeated?
  • Why do you think God bothers to inform Abraham of His plan to judge Sodom and Gomorrah?
  • What can we learn about God's character from the exchange between Him and Abraham?
  • How does this view of God both encourage and challenge us?

PREPARING TO SING
