Topic: Old Testament Scripture: Genesis 18:16–18:33
The Bible gives us several examples of God's righteous judgment. Earlier in Genesis we see a flood that wipes out everyone except Noah and his family. This Sunday we look at the lead up to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and it raises the question for us of what is righteous judgment? The passage points to God's patience, His concern for justice, and His mercy. It also helps us to keep in mind the judgment that is to come, and how only through faith in Christ will we be saved from God's righteous wrath.
