What is wrong with our world and what is God's plan to restore it, and us, to its original glory? Dec 1st begins this amazing Advent series.
Day 1: Genesis 1:26-31 Listen to the Sermon
Have you ever had someone close to you go away? What was it like when they were gone? How did communication with them change? How do you think it felt for Adam and Eve when God was no longer able to walk with them in the garden?
What would it be like if food just grew in your back yard? In what ways would your like be different? What does it take to keep food on your table? Does it match what the Bible says it will be like?
Man was created as morally good but ever since their rejection of God’s will sin has reigned in man instead. In what ways can you identify with what Paul is saying in Romans 7? How should this fact effect of prayers and reliance on God’s help in being good?
God put man in charge of the world but since man rejected God’s rule over him nature likewise has rejected man’s. How has this fact made your life more difficult?
Man was given the literal breath of God for life but as a consequence of sin death now reigns. Man broke the unity with God by disbelief in God’s authority. What hope does man have in a world like this? Is there anyway humankind can fix a problem of this magnitude?
What does this promise mean for Adam and Eve? Can you describe in one Word what it would give them? Does it give you the same things?
