Sermon Notes

The Rainbow is a display of beauty and joy. Young eyes and old ones light up at the sight of the colorful bow in the sky. And yet, as wondrous as it is to us, the rainbow has likely aroused less joy and peace in our hearts than it was designed to do so long ago. God set this bow in the clouds in order to remind humanity of His promise of grace, and this is far more joyous than appreciating the beauty of the heavenly sign. For millennia now, God has made good on His promise to never again judge the world by flood waters, and we should recognize such grace in humility. Yet, there is more effectual grace still and a more extensive promise that should seize our attention and cause our hearts to leap. The Cross of Christ reminds us that God has judged sin and offered salvation to all who trust in Him.
