Sermons about Sanctification
Solomon describes five qualities of the inner life that he wants to see developed or five pieces of advice that he wants people to follow. Distinguishing the good news from good advice; understanding each piece of advice and how to put it into practice.
Paul said to “Walk Worthy.” That means that a standard has been set. It wasn’t set by Paul, or John or Peter. It was set by the Gospel itself. The Gospel is the “good news” of salvation through Jesus Christ. As Christians we are to imitate Christ, not in His sacrifice, but in His walk and life. If we really mean business about reaching our world, we must heed the words of Paul and make it our commitment to Walk Worthy of the Gospel.
Sermon #4 from the "Advent" series. Scripture from Isaiah 52:13-53:12.
As believers we are called to walk in paths of righteousness.
The grace of God appeared through Jesus and the salvation He brought with Him during His first advent. This grace of God in salvation has a purpose both now and forever. For, not only does God's grace transform our future, but it is also meant to transform our present. As Christians, this transformation finds expression through our practice, is a product of of our position in Christ, and is one significant focus of our proclamation. So, while you wait, live the life by God's grace without looking back! Don't go back to the life God saved you from. Instead, show up to the classroom of God's grace by spending time in His Word, in prayer, and with His people as you walk with Him. Then, allow God's grace to permeate every area of your life.
The life of a Christian can be likened to going to the moon (think, 'pioneer'). We're sent to overcome the most inhospitable and hostile environment, establishing in that very place of impossibility a movement that can take root and flourish - unto the glory and pleasure of God. Are you ready to overcome all of the hostility in your environment? 72 minutes.
