Wild News for Wild People

Welcome to Richland Baptist Church. We are so happy to have you with us and we feel so honored that you have entrusted your children to us for this week. As I started thinking about what I wanted to say to you, our them of In the Wild really stuck with me.
We are going hop around to a few verses in scripture this morning. On a typical Sunday morning I start with one passage and stay primarily there during the sermon, explaining what it means. Today is someone what different, a sort of theme interpretation if you will.

We are wild people.

# We are wild people.
Creation -
Genesis 1:26–31 CSB
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness. They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, the whole earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth.” So God created man in his own image; he created him in the image of God; he created them male and female. God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth.” God also said, “Look, I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the surface of the entire earth and every tree whose fruit contains seed. This will be food for you, for all the wildlife of the earth, for every bird of the sky, and for every creature that crawls on the earth—everything having the breath of life in it—I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good indeed. Evening came and then morning: the sixth day.
Genesis 2:15–17 CSB
The Lord God took the man and placed him in the garden of Eden to work it and watch over it. And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree of the garden, but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will certainly die.”

We are wildly sinful.

Genesis 3:1–7 CSB
Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit from the trees in the garden. But about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘You must not eat it or touch it, or you will die.’ ” “No! You will not die,” the serpent said to the woman. “In fact, God knows that when you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” The woman saw that the tree was good for food and delightful to look at, and that it was desirable for obtaining wisdom. So she took some of its fruit and ate it; she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
Romans 3:23 CSB
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 6:23 CSB
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
romans 6:23

We live in a wild culture.

God is wildly loving.

While we were still sinners

God has provided for a wildly amazing future.

Passage about being adopted into the family
Born not of the will of man
From enemy to treasured child

Anyone can get in on this.

You aren’t too far gone. You’re sitting here right now and that’s something.

Opportunity for a wild decision.
