Sermon Notes

Many people who have any familiarity with Christian beliefs are quick to point out God’s gracious salvation. When confronted with their own sin and guilt, they may proclaim, “God forgives!” This is certainly true, but this is not the whole of it. In the Bible, we are given a view to God’s pattern of dealing with sinful humanity. God always saves and judges simultaneously. God regularly brings a great salvation through (or in the midst of) agonizing judgment. The Flood of Noah’s day exemplifies this pattern, and we may benefit from its warning and its promise.
