    • Read verse 6. How did God deal with rebellious angels? (See Genesis 6:1-4; 2 Peter 2:4)
    • Read verse 7. How did God deal with Sodom and Gomorrah? (See Genesis 19:1-29)

Evidence for Resurrection

Look at Abe

Mission – March 25, Romans 4

  1. Even though God’s promise was impossible, since he and Sarai were both old and childless, Abraham believed God. Abraham was declared righteous because of his faith (Genesis 15:6). What does it mean to trust God when circumstances are out of your control?
  2. The Gospel in its very nature is scandalous. Why do you think it offends people? What does it reveal about us? What does it reveal about God?
  3. As Christians, we have a tendency of becoming too familiar with God’s grace. When we do this, we risk falling into an ‘us’ and ‘them’ mentality where we forget that saving faith is for all who believe. Who are the people who you inadvertently alienate from the promises of God? What practical things can you do to avoid falling into this trap?

Remember Sodom

Mission – Feb 25,  Genesis 19

  1. In Genesis 18:25, Abraham asks God, “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do what is just?” How was God just in destroying Sodom?

What is an example from your context where sin lures in and destroys lives?
  3. Why must God judge sin?
