Sermons about Sanctification
We are called to grow while we wait for Jesus’ return. In the meantime, not everything is easy to understand in the Christian faith. We must set ourselves to the task of thinking clearly so that we might not be led astray.
Many churches still sing the old invitation hymn "I Surrender All." But is surrender to the Lordship of Christ a biblical concept?

During summer we often take many trips, some are scenic destinations, some are adventure or even service oriented. Some trips are to see people like family and friends.

There is clear assurance about the hope of this trip but also some thoughts regarding trip preparations we should take.
Habakkuk has been alone with God, awaiting an answer to the perplexing questions he had about the way God was doing business. God answers with a foundational principle that served as bedrock beneath the bewildered prophet's feet. God made a distinction between two different kinds of people in this world - those whose souls were not upright within them and those who were just in the sight of God. And in eight short words, God gave an answer that not only forms the basis for our justification, but equally so for our sanctification as well... The just shall live by their faith. This powerful truth is at the heart of Paul's great doctrinal writings in the book of Romans. It was also the cornerstone of the Protestant Reformation.
