Put the Amazing back into Amazing Grace
Jun 23, 2020 Season 4 Episode 14

Do you ever look around the world and wonder, “When is God going to judge?” The next question is “Can I escape if he does judge?”

Let’s answer these two questions as we think about Genesis 6:5-8. In the process we will put even more amazing into amazing grace.

WE DESERVE GOD’S AWESOME JUDGMENT (5-7)

  • Great wickedness (5a)
  • Constant wickedness (5b)
  • Grievous wickedness (6)
  • Punishable wickedness (7)

Sometimes God seems awful quiet, but he is preparing awe-full judgment.

Is there any hope for anyone?

WE GET GOD’S AMAZING GRACE (8)

As Mercy Me sing:

“We're on the edge of our seats saying it's too late
Well let me introduce you to amazing grace.”

  • Amazingly undeserved grace: Noah found “favor” means he got what he didn’t earn or merit. He was not entitled to this. He was no different to anyone else but was treated very differently.
  • Amazingly sovereign grace: Noah was picked out by God’s powerful choice. He didn’t choose God; God chose him. He didn’t pick God; God picked him.
  • Amazingly personal grace: God didn’t chose a group or a class of people, but an individual person. He wasn’t a number or a category, but a single human being. He said, “Noah, I am going to love you in a unique and special way.”
  • Amazingly saving grace: Noah was not just saved from the greatest ever earthly judgment but from the greatest ever eternal judgment. All because he found the grace of God.

If you aren’t amazed at grace, you can’t be amazed at anything.

Let introduce you to grace grace
God's grace.

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

(Mercy Me: Flawless)

If we deserve God’s awesome judgment, but get God’s amazing grace, how much should we thank him? Put your name in place of Noah’s. “But [your name] found favor in the eyes of the Lord.” Let’s praise God for his amazingly undeserved, sovereign, personal, and saving grace.
