Sermons about Fall
Pastor Scott Gordon finishes his look at the fall of man in Genesis 3.
Continuing our series on Genesis 1-11. Today we investigate the origin of sin and the impact of the fall
In the pages of Scripture, we find God's unfolding story. It began with Creation, God's world as it should be. It continues with the Fall, God's world broken by humanity's sin. The final chapter is Re-Creation, God's world restored through the risen Christ. In this sermon, we take a look at God's story in God's own words. Then, we look at how Christ's resurrection guarantees that God is bring His story to its intended close. For, God is creating a new humanity in the risen Christ. And, in the end, the risen Christ will restore the created order that was ruined by the Fall, in which God the Father will be over all. So, live in light of God's story! Realize that God is in control as He brings HIStory to its goal. Christ's resurrection guarantees it. This is good news for broken, fallen people like us. For, God does not throw us on the trash heap. Instead, He has shown Himself to be a re-creating God, not only with respect to human history, but in individual lives, as well. He can do the same in your life, too. So, trust in Him while you wait for Him.

“Everything has an end” Chaucer, Dickens, Riley as well as many others have offered variations on the “all good things must come to an end” sentiment. Tragedy seems to be as much a part of the human condition as life itself. From the soaring heights of last weekend’s Creation story, we find ourselves entering into seemingly irreparable brokenness. And the story continues… Innately, each of us recognizes that things are not as they should be. But do we truly see how deep the problem goes? ‘Living a better story’ means coping with the reality of the one we’ve written to this point.
God's good dominion is clear. Heaven and Earth, man and woman are together cultivating goodness in God's good creation and it is all blessed. The story should go well from here, right? No. Instead, we believe the wrong story told by the wrong guy over the wrong meal. When we get out of order, all hell breaks loose.
