Bible Story:

Genesis 12:1-4a, 15:1-6 & Romans 4:13-25

When Adam and Eve first sinned in the Garden of Eden, they separated themselves and all of mankind from God. Their relationship with God was broken. However, God promised that one day He would rescue His people. He chose a man named Abram that would be the earthly father of His new people. God used Abram to create His new family. One day, God Himself came to earth when His Son Jesus was born through the line of Abram. Even though we had sinned against Him, God promised to restore His people and make them new.


New Creation: Review

Part of the beauty of the gospel is that God does not just rescue us from the power of sin, but He is also mak- ing everything new. God offers new creation to those who place their faith in Jesus. This newness comes in two ways. The first is that by breaking the power of sin, Jesus is making men and women into brand new people with new identities. Second, God is not only making people new, but He is also going to make a new heaven and a new earth for us to live on and worship Him in.
