In the aim of God's sovereign predestination, we have the most glorious privilege of being a blood bought inheritance to our Supreme Savior. Through God's sovereign election, adoption, and redemption, we are washed by the everlasting powerful blood of Christ and are white as snow. Our identity is now His, we are His people. In stark contrast to what the world says, we are not defined by the finite and mundane things of this planet. We are defined by the glorious and wonderful identity of being God's people. In this sermon, Pastor Tim shows us how beautiful and worthy it is to be a child of God.
In God's wonderful and merciful love he predestined us for adoption to be his son's. As man, we were dead in sins and objects of wrath, destined for destruction. But God being rich in mercy and kindness, lavished us with his love by adopting us as son's through the resurrection power of Christ's death on the cross. In this sermon we will see that we are no longer orphans, but we are precious son's in Christ, and we can now rest in our Father's arms.
The Mystery of His Will In this passage, Paul is saying that the Gospel is restoration, redemption, and recovery of this world that God made good. In the opening act of the biblical story, we are shown prefect shalom—everything is exactly as it should be. But when Adam and Eve sinned against God, the tether that connected us to our God, to other humans, to creation, and to ourselves was severed. At the cross, God not only dealt with our personal sin, but the effects of pervasive sin. He was not only saving you as an individual, He was beginning His campaign of reclaiming and restoring everything back to what He initially intended. This means that Jesus has not only begun his cosmic and comprehensive restoration with his death on the cross, but, at the right time, He’s making right everything that is wrong and ushering in a new age. Even though the power of sin is great and deadly, the power of the Gospel is greater. Sin stands no chance against God.
1) Our bad things turn out for the good. 2) Our good things can never be lost. 3) The best things are yet to come.
The vastness of God's grace is explored in such as way as to relate to human terms. This first sermon in a new series examines Sovereign Grace.
Life is full of choices. Can we choose our own destiny or has it already been decided? Pastor David digs deep into the word of God to discover the truth in the first part of his series on choices.
