25 June 2023 (am) – Genesis 11:10-32
|Andy Bruins preaching from Genesis on Sunday 25th June 2023.
Genesis chapters 10 and 11 make the connection between Noah and Abraham. These genealogies can seem a little monotonous, but remind us that the purpose of Old Testament is to unfold the story of God redeeming mankind from sin. Adam and Eve brought condemnation into the world, but immediately we are promised a redeemer, the seed of the woman who would crush the Serpent’s head.
And so the theme of “seed” or family trees is really important – it reminds us that God’s promises are still on track.
Q What is the most unlikely or dramatic conversion story you have heard?
Q Read Joshua 24:2. What was Abraham’s religion like before God called him?
Q Read Exodus 20:4-5. What is the reason that God gives for why He hates idolatry?
Q Read 1 John 2:15-26 and 1 John 5:21. What is idolatry? How is it still a problem for us today? What are some of the idols that we are likely to worship?
Q Read Acts 7:2-4. What was it that broke Abram free from his idols? How does God still do the same for us today?
