Cary Cox, from Genesis 7-8:19 (Genesis Study 20). The account of the Flood is written in a way to draw our attention to God himself. He is sovereign over all that is happening; he reigns as King over the Flood, Lord of the chaos, God over all! He is showcasing the glory of his wrath in judging sin, and he is displaying the glory of his mercy in saving his covenant people. We can trust him in the chaos and the storm.

Kingdom67 – Parables of the Unexpected Kingdom – Mat13 24-43
Cary Cox from Matthew 13:24-43. We see the persistent disciples coming to Jesus for explanation of truth while the crowds walk away confused. God is giving light to his people. Jesus teaches about the kingdom of heaven: it will start small and look insignificant, but grow steadily until the glory of God covers the earth! God will let the wicked continue to live on earth with the righteous until the end of the age – the harvest – when separation and judgment comes. These truths were surprising to Jesus’ hearers, but encourage his disciples to endure to the end. Glory is coming!
