Soli Deo Gloria

“God Judges in Scattering” Genesis 11:1-32

An Expositional Sermon
God is the tower of His people. Psalm 61:1-4 describes how our safety isn’t found in building cities and towers, but in God. He is our protection. He is our help, “Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. Let me dwell in your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah”. The heart of God’s people leans into the Lord as our refuge and comfort. We don’t try to take control over all of our circumstances and then find comfort only when we have the most strength (exemplified in the buildings and mini-kingdoms that we build). As we’ll consider next week in Abraham, God’s people have faith. And they don’t put their hope in the cities of this earth, but in the city that they look forward to. The one that has foundations and whose designer and builder is God (Hebrews 11:10). Don’t put your pride, joy, and hope in the cities of this world or in the things that you build. Put your hope in God through Christ. Boast in His powerful name. Tell of the great work He has done in His substitutionary death and resurrection to redeem sinners like us from our sin and from His wrath. Tell of His glory in creation and in His faithfulness and power to fulfill His promises.
