How can we be certain of the truth of Jesus Christ? We claim and believe it, but how can we be certain? Because we ARE God's beloved. Just as Luke did all his research for Theopilus, whose name is "God's beloved". In other words Luke did this for us, Christ followers. If you do not believe that Jesus is your Savior, God's Word will be nonsense to you. But for all "God's beloved" it is all we believe with certainty!
Sermon on Ephesians 2:20 by Pastor Dan Hendley.
One of the consequences of sin--of living in a world filled with it--is shame. For the believer, shame is often how the Holy Spirit convicts us when we knowingly disobey God. We'll call it anything but shame--embarrassment, offense, annoyance. We'll be frustrated, confused, and offended, but seldom ashamed. Should we be ashamed of our actions when they go against God's Word, and what happens as we more and more become a shameless society? There's an interesting account of Jesus in John 8 which reveals how we should not only view the shame and sin of others and ourselves, but how we can act with both forgiveness and compassion--under conviction but without condemning. In this message, Dr. Merritt unpacks the fascinating and fundamental issue of shame and sin in our lives.
