Rev. Alex begins our new series this week, I WILL: The Promises of God.
God makes numerous promises in the bible, often to people in uncertain times. Unlike human promises, they are 100% guaranteed because of who God is. Our understanding is that ultimately, they all point to Jesus so a key verse for this series is 2 Corinthians 1: 20: “For all the promises of God find their yes in Him.”
The first promise is to defeat the enemy. We see that even in her sin, Eve is promised an offspring to do this and that although Satan will be defeated, the victory will wound the savior. It’s a promise “another” will fulfill.
Readings from this service:
Genesis 3: 13-15
Psalm 132: 14-19
John 12: 27-33
