Sermons about Divine Call
Have you ever been asked: "Why do you believe that you are accepted by God? How can you be sure you go to heaven?" Is it your works? Is it because you are a good person? Or that you where baptized as a child? Or even because your parents where religious? What would be your response? Are you not sure or do you know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you are saved? Only Jesus plus NOTHING brings salvation. Salvation comes thru faith in Jesus Christ.
What is faith? It is a radical trust and loyalty to God. It can't be know if it is not revealed to you. Faith can't come from self or from the world. It can only come from God, because He made it known. Without faith we can't imagine the things we have faith for. Faith is a response from God revealing Himself to us. It is a divine gift of grace and our response to it.
Why do we gather this morning in a sanctuary? Because you are saved? You see it as an obligation? You are curious about God's Word? Or you have no idea why, but something told you to go. One thing is certain; we are gathered to worship God. He called all of us here together, no matter what our background is, to share His vision (Word) with all of us.
We are more than conquerors in our faith that Jesus Christ is alive. The result of your salvation; your trust in Him, is that you love Him, thus you obey Him. As a result of this your mind is set on the Holy Spirit and not on the world. Ask yourself these questions: 1) Do you speak Jesus Christ? 2) Do you belong to Jesus Christ?
