Soli Deo Gloria

“God Judges in Fire” Genesis 18:1-20:18

An Expositional Sermon
Sodom and Gomorrah is a reminder to us, a glimpse of God’s coming wrath that we read about earlier from Revelation 19:11-16. God’s wrath in the flood, and the destruction of the Canaanites in Joshua are both previews of God’s final judgment. And here in Sodom and Gomorrah. God’s just and good wrath for sin is coming. Can you see the urgency of the gospel, and how God is merciful to provide a way that we can be saved through the death and resurrection of Christ? Imagine being Abraham watching the smoke rise in the distance as God’s wrath literally rained upon a city he helped to save in Genesis 14. God’s wrath is real and it is coming. Praise God for His grace to us, and ask God to save more for the sake of His glorious grace.
