What hope can believers have, when they are under God's discipline for their sin? Psalm 106 prepares us for the opening portion of public worship on the Lord's Day. In these forty-eight verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that, when believers are under discipline for their sin, they can hope in the God Who has made history into a stunning display of His patience, saving power, and forgiving mercy to sinners like them.
We will look at the last three verses in chapter two, three verses that are crucial in our relationship with Jesus Christ. As we study these three verses, they may generate some uneasiness, and if they do, that is a good thing, because it is fruitful to use Scripture to examine ourselves and our relationship with Jesus

Text: Genesis 2:7-3:15 | Speaker: Levi Bakerink | Description: Jesus is Immanuel, God with us. This fact is the glorious truth of the Incarnation; the good news that brings great joy. But why is this news so good? In the month of December, we are going to ask this question in this series, about what it means that God is truly with us. And in order to understand why that is such good news, we first need to see the bad news. God was with us, but it was lost due to our sin and rebellion. Thankfully, it was not lost forever.
