Old Testament Follow Up

On Sunday we looked at Genesis 3, and the consequences of sin entering the world. Next Sunday we are going to pick up the story in Genesis 12, where God makes a covenant with Abraham and begins to define the relationship between God and man.

In the meantime you might want to take a look at three parts of the story which we are going to skip over, but which demonstrate the spiralling descent into sin which results from the fall in Genesis 3.

These are:
- Genesis 4 where Cain murders Abel
- Genesis 6 and the story of Noah
- Genesis 11 and the tower of Babel

Whatever you do, please be engaging with the Bible this week, not just reading it but being encouraged, strengthened and changed by what you read. My reading this morning were the Passover in Exodus and the resurrection in Luke 24 - uber inspiring!

Hope you have a great day.

Simon.

Great series!
Loving it already, it's so great to be focusing on God's WORD so early on in the year. A great opportunity to turn good intentions in to great habits
