God’s Grief Over a Wicked World | Genesis 6:1-8

God’s Grief Over a Wicked World | Genesis 6:1-8

Genesis 6 begins the story of the single greatest disaster in all human history where God determines to wipe out the entire population of the world except Noah and his family. This was in response to the wickedness on the earth, in which angels and humans overstepped their bounds, committing unrestrained idolatry and fornication, and completely giving their hearts and minds to evil continually. However, within this depravity, Noah and his family were the recipients of God’s grace and were saved. In this lesson we learn that compromise toward sin leads to corruption that brings God grief and leads to His judgement for all who reject His grace.

  •  Sin starts with compromise (vv. 1-2, 4)
  • Sin leads to corruption (v. 5)
  • Sin deeply grieves God and brings His judgement (vv. 6-7)
  • God extends grace to the unworthy (vv. 3, 8)
