The corruption continues …

January 3

Genesis 5:1-7:24

Matthew 3:7-4:11
Psalm 3:1-8
Proverbs 1:10-19

Already in the first 7 chapters of Genesis, we’ve seen sin enter the world through one act of disobedience. The next generation added murder, and then generation after generation follows until the entire earth is corrupt and God is grieved that He even made us. Still his mercy is evident, as He saved a remnant through Noah and his family to continue His work in the world. Love the literary elements of these first 7 chapters, right down to the foreshadowing of the coming of Christ and His salvation through the story of Noah and the ark.
