    Law, Kingdom, and Mercy
    Series: (All)
    The Psalms, primarily when understood as a whole, organized collection, lay out major themes of Scripture. They especially highlight the ultimate hope of god's people--the establishment of His law and the vindication of His kingdom, accomplished through His mercy throughout history. 
    Scripture: Psalms 1-3

    God’s Sovereign Election (Part 4)
    As he continues through the subject of God's sovereignty, Paul anticipates the question of one's free will and doubles down on the authority of God in all areas, including this.  While we can have very sincere questions if we're hoping to gain greater understanding, we must remember that all of our actions are tainted by sin due to our fallen nature, and absent God's grace, we are all vessels of destruction, which are used to show his power and to make known the riches of his glory
     
    Scripture: Job 40:1-15, Romnans 9:19-24

    Down To The Water!
    As believers, we need to be willing to be an instrument in our Lord's hands, have a genuine heart for the lost, and be willing to do whatever it takes to preach the gospel.  In Acts 8, we see God using Philip in the salvation of the Ethiopian eunuch, who was highly regarded and seemingly had much of what the world has to offer, yet something was still missing.  After God opened his heart, he partook in baptism, which is the outward witness to others of the inward change that God has made.

    God’s Sovereign Election (Part 3)
    In part 3 of this section on God's sovereign election of his people, Paul impresses upon us what it means for God to "harden" someone, which is simply an act of his leaving someone to their own way.  It can be an act of judgment, to show us how sinful we truly are or to accomplish his will and purposes.  
     
    Scripture: Exodus 7:1-13, Romans 9:16-18

    God’s Sovereign Election (Part 2)
    There are two major categories of objections to the reality of God's sovereign election in salvation, fairness and personal freedom, that Paul anticipates and addresses as we wrestle with this challenging doctrine.  Just as a governor, who has the authority and prerogative, can pardon the convicted, so too does God in choosing to show mercy on some and not others.  This is not based on anything that we do but is the free gift of mercy shown to convicted and underserved sinners.  
     
    Scripture: Exodus 33:1-6, 12-19, Romans 9:1-16

    God’s Sovereign Election
    While a sometimes difficult doctrine, all of scripture shows us that God is sovereign over the salvation of those whom he chooses for the purpose of carrying out his plans and decrees.  It's God's gift of election that determines our faith, and for those in Christ, this gives us great assurance of our faith.  Far from being blind, true faith is trust with all of the knowledge that he's revealed to us. 
     
    Scripture: Psalm 135, Romans 9:1-13

    Always Preach. Never Presume
    While God is always sovereign in the salvation of his people, this fact does not negate our responsibility as Christians to preach the Gospel, with love and without partiality, to all people, whether they're sympathetic to us or not.  We also cannot make the mistake that someone having all of the advantages of growing up around the church and being surrounded by the things God equates to salvation in Christ.  Always preach, never presume, because what's at stake is everything. 
     
    Scripture: Isaiah 48:12-19, Romans 9:1-5

    He Will Never Remove His Love
    The passages at the end of Romans 8 remind us that nothing can separate us from his love.  Though we do not yet experience the same trials, tribulations, and persecution as other Christians in different parts of the world, a time will come when we face these in various forms.  Because of his love for us, we know that we can be ever dependent on him, no matter what we face.
