The last two months have been a time unlike any other in the lives of everyone living today. And even after all we have already seen and been through, there is still a complete uncertainty for what the future holds. How great will the toll become before the virus subsides? How long before we find a vaccination? An effective treatment? Will there be another major wave? What kind of risk will this virus pose perpetually from this point? What will be the affects to our economy? Retirement? World relations? Others who may be here today, or watching live stream have such heart-breaking situations in their lives that the Corona Virus seems simple and distant: death, divorce, sickness, poverty. Whatever the crisis is in your life which may be bringing you to the edge of depression and overwhelming anxiety, my hope is that you will allow God's Word to powerfully speak to your heart and mind today.
A few weeks ago... We focused on issues that MEN ALONE are facing in this world!
And looked at God's Design for how men, and fathers are to answer their calling from God...Regardless of the pressures, trends or beliefs of the fallen world around us!
Today, for God’s Glory… And request from several people... This Mother's Day... We will do the same for the ladies! Because YOU, ladies... Need to know... There is NOT a more precious, valuable, powerful force on this earth... Than that of a woman! And it is my goal... My duty before God...
To help you see that worth... And answer that calling!
Just before we began our Quarantine, we completed a 2-week study about how to Sanctify ourselves (set ourselves apart for serving God), recognizing many of the things we have accepted in our daily lives, which in actuality, are sin in God's Word. Hopefully you were honest with yourselves about some of the things in our lives which we never recognized as sin, or simply avoided dealing with as sin. But if you are like most, recognizing the sin is only the first, very small step. Many, many Christians have at least one thing in their lives which goes beyond a temptation to an outright constant battle. Even worse, sometimes a "full-blown, bags packed, moved into the house" habitual sin that is always with you. One you have become stuck in, maybe for months or years, surrendering to simply living with, constantly defeated by; that one you vow every other day to never fall into again, only to fall again, in deeper shame and estrangement from God! Well, take heart: even the Apostle Paul clearly understood your pain: Romans 7:15, 18-19.
So, how do we beat this kind of sin? Can we ever expect to beat this kind of sin? Yes you can!
Do all dogs go to Heaven? Let's answer up front!
So far in our series we have discussed...That the final Heaven will be here on a New Earth!
That we will have new, earthly bodies, not bodiless souls...That there will, in fact still be- time, day, night, & seasons...And lastly, we have taken a close, glorious look at the New Jerusalem City that will come down to earth for Christ to dwell with man!
Let’s start with the most basic and foundational question we could ask ourselves about our Christian walk: “Why are you still here?” Since we have become disciples of Jesus Christ, what is His main calling for all of us while still in this fallen world? Why has He even kept us here? We could probably get as many answers as we have listeners, but there is one solid, Biblical answer—so, let’s simply allow Scriptures to answer Their own question:
