A Wail of Two Cities

Genesis 19:15-29

Airs: September 26 - September 30

The total annihilation of Sodom and Gomorrah reminds us that God’s gracious patience and merciful long-suffering have their limits. Though He delays judgment for the sake of the salvation of those who will believe and repent, He never dismisses His wrath against unrepentant wickedness. Many today presume upon the grace and mercy of a forgiving God, assuming that these characteristics define His total character. Such people have failed to learn the lesson of Sodom and Gomorrah: eventually God will say, “Enough!”

Abraham: One Nomad's Amazing Journey of Faith


  • October 1 - October 3 Overcoming Depravity's Dangerous Undertow

    The deep depravity of our culture constantly threatens to sweep us away into gross indecency and shameless immorality. All around us, lives are being shattered, families ripped apart, and whole communities destroyed. We tend to think this is a modern malady, that depravity has recently begun its relentless deluge. Wrong. The account of Lot’s dysfunctional family affair teaches us that the tragic effects of sin have been with us since the beginning.

  • October 6 - October 8 Disobedience Déjà Vu

    Who hasn’t felt the painful sting of regret after committing a particular sin again…and again…and again? That seemingly endless cycle of sin, guilt, shame, repentance, confidence, and sin again—what we might call our disobedience déjà vu—can be downright sickening and humiliating!

  • October 9 - October 13 It's a Boy!

    For a quarter century, Abraham and Sarah occupied God’s waiting room. When Abraham was 75 and his wife 65, God promised they would have a son. Periodically, the Lord refuelled their waning hopes with words of assurance that He had not forgotten. Nevertheless, as the years turned into decades, their anxiety must have become palpable. Yet, the wait cultivated their faith and reinforced a vital truth: God may delay the fulfilment of His promises, but He’s never late.

  • October 14 - October 16 Forgiven Sin...Lingering Consequences

    One truth that emerges from the life of Abraham over and over again is that our vertical relationship with God is secure. Regardless of our moral mess-ups or foolish frolics, God’s promises are fixed. In fact, it’s because of His promises that our personal relationships with God are secure. When God forgives, He casts our sins as far as the east is from the west. He remembers them no more!

  • October 17 - October 21 When God Says, “Let Go!”

    Our earthly lives revolve around the people we love and the things we enjoy: spouses, children, friends, home, work, treasured possessions…even our hopes and dreams. These people, places, and things form the piers and beams of our daily existence, creating structure, comfort, and security. Remove one, and we experience an earthquake that shakes the framework of our lives.
