From Your Pastor's Heart - October 25, 2015

Greetings Family!

            What a promise we have of security in Christ!  That is the subject of today’s passage and of the message that will expound the passage.  The security that we have as believers in Christ is founded upon Christ Himself and His ability to “save to the uttermost”.  He also has the power to keep that which is His, us His children.

            The foundation of our security, or rather the beginning point of having security in Christ, is found in our initial response to His grace shown to us from the cross.  Have we ever truly come to Him in repentance and faith?  Repentance, being truly sorry for our sin, is always preceded by godly sorrow.  I want to quote for you part of a sermon by Charles Spurgeon the great Baptist pastor of England in the 1800’s who said this about true repentance…

The Savior is the Holy One of God, who saves His people from their sins (Matt.1:2 1) and not in their sins: who saves them from the love and dominion of their sins.  Go not to God and ask for mercy with sin in thy hand.  What would you think of the rebel who appeared before the face of his sovereign and asked for pardon with the dagger sticking in his belt and with the declaration of his rebellion on his breast?  Surely he would deserve double doom for thus mocking his monarch while he pretended to be seeking mercy.  If a wife has forsaken her husband do you think she would have the impudence, with brazen forehead, to come back and ask his pardon leaning on the arm of her paramour?  Yet so it is with you-—perhaps asking for mercy and going on in sin—praying to be reconciled to God and yet harboring and indulging your lusts…cast away your sin or He cannot hear you.  If you lift up unholy hands with a lie in your right hand, prayer is worthless on your lips.

            As always, my prayer is that we would all “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”  II Timothy 2:15.

Humbly Yours,

Bro Steve
