The Flood of Debauchery
Rarely do we perceive how distorted we have been by sin. Perhaps sin itself has blinded us? Many people were just getting on with life when God chose to judge them all with a worldwide flood. Were things really that bad? Are they any different now?

Endure in Evangelism Amidst Affliction
Encouragement to Endure in Times of Affliction (Part 2)
What these afflicted saints need first is some encouragement. Paul continues in the rest of chapter 1 by encouraging the Thessalonians Christians with more evidences of grace. This church was known for imitating Christ and being holy. What about you? Are you faithfully imitating Christ? Are you living holy lives that are worthy of this kind of gratitude?
Encouragement to Endure in Times of Affliction (Part 1)
Affliction goes hand-in-hand with being a follower of Jesus Christ. When affliction comes, we shouldn’t be surprised, we shouldn’t despair, and we shouldn’t be afraid. Rather, we should be joyful and endure with all hope because the Lord gives hope to his people. 1 Thessalonians was written to a young church that was experiencing much affliction. In this sermon, we look at how Paul encouraged the suffering church and reminded them of God’s grace and love for them.
The Delightful Supremacy of God Over All Things
After surveying Genesis 1-5 it is obvious that God is supreme over all that He has made. But this supremacy is not something to be terrified of. In fact, it ought to lead the Christian to heartfelt joy and thanksgiving. By looking back over these chapters with this thought in mind, we can fuel our delight in God and thus increase our worship of Him.
