Though many will deny it, the day of the Lord is a certainty. The day is coming when by the word of God, the world will be destroyed by fire and all will stand before the Lord in Judgement. Are you ready for that day?
As we prepare to talk about worship in giving next Sunday, we take a few minutes this morning to talk about what God has given us through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
A focus of 2 Peter is the danger of false teachers, and in Chapter 2 he begins to discuss the source of their doctrine, the perversion of the truth. But before that, at the end of chapter 1 he gives us some insight into the source of true doctrine.
Worshiping in song is such a vital part of our worship to God, but it’s about so much more than melody and pitch and whether or not one uses an instrument. Our singing is an opportunity to teach our brethren and friends, to reflect on God’s blessings, and praise His name.
There are some passages in God’s Word that we often read quickly without giving too much attention. Romans 1:1-6, Paul’s introduction to that letter, is one such passage. But there is a deep theological richness to the words with which Paul began his letter, and in this lesson and one to follow, we will examine some things about these six verses.
Life is precious. All human beings have a right to life that no man can take from them of their own volition. God has authorized capital punishment in the case of murder, but he hates the shedding of innocent blood. Since the 1970s, the blood of millions of innocent babies has been shed in abortion procedures across this country, and the practice continues to expand even today. God cares about the unborn, and he will not hold guiltless the one who unrepentantly takes the lives of the innocent. But when one repents, God will forgive.
Our God will judge the nations one day, and when he does, all his judgements will be right. He will never get it wrong, there will be no second chances. We must all be ready for that day.
