Week of October 4
The Creator Destroys and Redeems: In this session, we see how God responds to the rebelliousness of humanity. He grieves over the wickedness of the world even as He pronounces judgment upon humanity. But in this righteous judgment, God shows favor to Noah and his family, saving them from a great flood and then commissioning them to fulfill His good intentions for humanity. Like Noah, we are saved from God’s judgment and called to obey God as His redeemed people.
