Our text reveals two important stabilizing truths regarding this wonderfully encouraging statement, "God remembered Noah" and moved to act in his behalf for his welfare. He also remembers you and will do the same for you.
Synopsis: It is highly significant and striking that immediately after giving the 10 commandments at Mt. Sinai (Exodus 20:1-17), that God gives instructions for reconciliation to Him because He knew us to be lawbreakers in heart (Exodus 20:18-26). Mt. Calvary also had an altar upon which the Lamb of God became the only uniquely qualified Substitute to reconcile sinful man with a holy God. As we consider these two mountains and the altar upon them, there are three crucial truths that must be embraced if we are to be reconciled to God.
Synopsis: Why do the righteous have hope in their death? How is that hope obtained? Is there really life after death? Or do we just hope there is and hope that we believed right? What if there is no resurrection?

Synopsis: Ever wonder why Christ had to be dead for three days AND three nights? Why not just for a few hours? for a day? On which day did Christ die? In tonight's Bible study we look to God's Word for answers to three important questions regarding the day of Christ's death.

Synopsis: There are certain places that we attach a specific significance to because of important events that transpired in our lives--whether it was our high school graduation, where we were married, where our first home was, etc. Such as true with the nation of Israel. There are two significant, most memorable events that transpired at the encampment at Gilgal that find direct parallel to our lives and so are most instructive for us today.

Synopsis: Tonight, the teen evangelist from the Frazor Team, Sam Near, spoke to the congregation in which the teens who had participated in the "Cola Wars" were a part. Part of his challenge to the congregation was this: "In Hell you do not die. It is eternal punishment that needs an eternal sacrifice, an eternal payment that is only given to us by an eternal God. Are you willing to humble yourself to cry out to Jesus to save you from your sins and accept Him as your Lord and Savior?
Synopsis: What drives you? Life is all about God, not you. So what does God want you to do? What is His will for you? What is His work for you to do?
