Sermons from August 2018
God wrote a book and will hold us accountable for receiving it or rejecting it. His Son was given in love so that no one need perish on that last day.
The Christian’s present life is a preparation for Jesus’ evaluation and reward at the Judgment Seat of Christ. God’s eternal reward is based upon His grace, not our merit. God abounds in loving kindness, so let us live with a view to His gracious promises.
“Twas grace that caused my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved. How precious did that grace appear, the hour I first believed…” What good news the Gospel brings us when we realize that the same grace that awakens fear is the grace that brings us home.
There is a stark contrast between what man emphasizes and what God says, and we must remember that our fate after we die is settled not by what we feel but rather by what God has spoken.
