Cary Cox, from Genesis 18 (Genesis Study 37). God appears to Abraham and they share a covenant meal. The Lord brings two announcements: An announcement of promise concerning Sarah, which displays his great and wonderful mercy! And an announcement of judgment for Sodom, which displays his great wrath and justice! God is, at the same time, the glorious God of mercy and judgment! Both his mercy and wrath are displayed at the cross in Christ, who rescues us from judgment and brings us into the enjoyment of God’s mercy!

The Meekness and Gentleness of Christ
Clint Pitman, from Isaiah 42:2-3. Clint focuses our attention on the kindness of Jesus towards believers who are struggling. Jesus’ character, as prophesied in Isaiah, is different from rulers of this age. He does not seek the celebrity and fame of this world. He does not beat his people down, but lifts us up. And he brings justice in the way he treats people, in his punishment of the wicked, and in his atonement of his people! (The audio cuts off the end of the message)
