Psalm 32 is the good news in miniature. God forgives completely, protects, and teaches those who trust in Christ.
My goals this morning are two-fold: 1) I want you to see who Jesus Christ is, so that you might believe in him and have life in his name. 2) I want us to see how Jesus did evangelism, so that we might imitate him in reaching the world.
There is a person that God has put in your life. Associating with this person will be uncomfortable and will sap you of your energy. It may cost you your reputation among more â€˜spiritualâ€™ people in the church and those in your neighborhood. You may lose your friends, your health, or your safety. It will involve breaking some social taboos. It would be much easier to avoid this person. No one would blame you if you did. In fact, you would be applauded by the more â€˜spiritualâ€™ people for doing so. This person desperately needs the Gospel. Do you interact? Do you initiate a relationship? Or, do you bow to Pharisaical pressure, formulate your excuses and turn your back on them.
Inerrancy - All the Words of Scripture are completely true and without error in any part, and they are to be obeyed.
There are two root desires at the heart of the universe that are in opposition to one another and have been at war ever since the fall of Satan and the fall of Man: * Jealousy for the glory of God â€“ the great desire to see that God receives all the glory and honor and praise that is rightfully his. * Jealousy of the glory of God â€“ the great desire to have for oneself the glory that God alone deserves.
