Sermons about Blessings
With some foundational things in place - approach to the Bible (humility, submission, context), importance of genre, etc. - in this session we talk a bit more in detail about some difficulties dangers associated with eschatology. There is a dominant view in our culture concerning eschatology - but is it correct? In this session a bit of a closer look will be taken of 1 Thessalonians 4 and Matthew 24.
Introduction: the Trials of Life 1. Why do we experience trials in our lives? 2. Why are there trials in the Christian life? The Blessings of God: amidst the Trials of Life 1. God’s Purpose: our sanctification for His glory (Jm 1:2-4; Eph 1:6; 1Pe 1:3ff) 2. God’s Promise: the crown of life for those who love Him (Jm 1:12; Romans 8:28ff) 3. God’s Provision: the Lord Jesus Christ - His gospel and salvation (Jm 1:13-18; Rom 8) 4. Our Patient-Endurance: we follow Jesus Christ by faith (Jm 1:1-4,12; 5:7-20; Mark 6:45-52)
God wants a testimony to his goodness, grace and mercy. Peter preaches Jesus Christ to the people who are now open to hear the sermon, he charges the people with murder, attributes the healing of the man to Jesus Christ of Nazareth, encourages the people, softens the situation by calling them brethren, remembers that once he had also denied Jesus Christ , and he exalted the people to become Christians.
God Always Has A Witness. When God wants a witness for soul saving, he knows how to get one. There will never be a time there will not be a witness for the Lord on this Earth. Spiritually we are pitiful without Him. How did Jesus show up in your life? If you are looking for a blessing, go to Jesus.
How are trials, temptations, and blessings connected?
Pursuit of God, seeing Christ, Light to the world, blessing to others.
