10 Tweets on “The Creator Ruins and Redeems” (Genesis 6:5-22)

Here's last weekend’s sermon in 10 Tweets in our “The Story Begins (The Gospel Project)" series.

1/ God’s judges because God loves. 

2/ Volf: “I came to think that I would have to rebel against a God who wasn't wrathful at the sight of the world's evil.”

3/ There’s a downward spiral in the response to sin very early in the story of God—from shame to indifference to boasting.

4/ God’s first response to the evil and violence gone wild on the earth was sorrow and grief. 

5/ God willingly, voluntarily, and happily bound up his heart and his life with us. 

6/ David Woodley: “When God sent the flood, he was merely judging something that was already ruined.”

7/ In judgment, God offers grace. 

8/ Grace precedes righteousness in Noah’s story.

9/ Salvation came to us through the very instrument by which death came to Jesus—the cross.  

10/ In judgment, God commissions his people.
