Big Idea #1—In the bible there is only one family tree that matters—
Gal. 3:26-29 for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.
Big Idea #2—Your Legacy makes a difference.
Gen. 5:1-2 When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. 2 Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created.
Gen. 5:3 When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth.

Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
Adam-Eve: Gen. 3:8-9 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”
Noah—Gen. 6:9– These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God;
