There are many who fear or wonder about losing salvation. Is this actually possible? Does the Bible have strong counseling on this subject? When we inventory our thoughts of salvation, how much of the Word of God is being placed in our heart daily? Today's message will challenge us concerning eternal security.
Part 2. As we step out to "do" the work of the Kingdom, we find out how God looks for a very specific type of fruit. It isn't apples versus oranges versus bananas. God draws a line and judges the quality of our fruit, which reveals the truth about we who bear it. The first step of doing is to "do good." We have a sense of what we believe is good, but it is based on the feelings of the individual. God has a different idea of what is good, and He direct us to bear good fruit.
Part 1. On the Day of Pentecost, we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit for the first time on New Testament believers, and we pray for Him to come anew to our individual lives and our churches. The Holy Spirit was given, not just to have a party once a year, but to help us accomplish our mission. It is an unpopular idea, but we are saved to do, to be about our Father's business. God is looking for a people who aren't just sitting and waiting, but are busy fulfilling good deeds and doing the work of the Kingdom.
The Millennium is PRACTICAL to your daily life. Most Christians know very little about what Scripture says concerning what comes next, and even fewer understand what it means for them now in this life. Let's look at what God's Word has to say about what the Millennium means to your life today. (Part One of a two part message on the Millennium Brought by Nathan Warner).
We will all give an accounting at the final judgment. What “currency” will you be holding? Will it meet God’s requirements? Paul declared that the wrong currency is religious privilege and accomplishment. He issued a strong warning about false teachers in Philippi, because their message of works righteousness was an appealing, but deadly, lie. This is the case not only for the unbeliever seeking to earn God's salvation, but also for the believer seeking to earn God's blessings. The right currency is righteousness that comes from God’s grace. Our boasting is to be in Christ’s gracious work on the Cross. Our service is to be empowered by the gracious work of the Holy Spirit.
When the church is fervently praying for each other and the world, great things happen. People and nations will be changed forever. The power of prayer is ordained by the Lord Jesus Christ. The world WILL be turned upside down when the church prays sincerely and fervently. Jesus tells us that we only have to ask and we will receive. So why doesn't the church turn back to the Lord and ask?
Jesus has called us to be the salt of the earth, to enhance the world. He has has called us to be lights of the world, to enlighten the darkness that exists. He has called on us to enlarge the vision of God to the world. The question simply is: what are we doing about it? Pastor Chris takes a look at how the church has been salt and light in history, and challenges us to continue on even though its hard and tiring.
