Sermon Titbits

Entries for July 2014

According to Pastor Mensah Otabil, one of the certainties of life is that we must make choices. Some are deliberate and some are unconscious. An average man makes about 100,000 choices every day. A choice is an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with 2 or more possibilities. There has to be options and preferences in order to make choices. When there are no options, life is simple. Making a choice is always difficult. However, God created us to make choices and He expects us to choose right (Luke 22:41-43, Deut. 30:19-20). Moses instructed the people to choose life instead of death, blessing instead of cursing. In Luke 22:41-43, Jesus had to make a choice to die on the cross. In these passages, we learn that we are created with a free will. We have a conscience and have the ability to make right choices and God does not want to force us into doing His will. There are three big choices we have to make in life and if we do our lives we go right. 
1. Choose what to feed on. What we allow into our system will form our personality. In Gen. 2:115-17, God gave Adam the free will to choose what to eat.

God is able to make all grace abound towards us. He has played His part by making grace available to us and in abundance. He expects us to receive His grace in order for us to reign in this life. 2 Peter 3:18 states “But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to Him be glory both now and forever, Amen”. Peter is saying we should give increase to grace. It is our responsibility to grow in God’s grace. In 2 Peter 1:2, Peter greets the church saying grace and peace be multiplied unto you.  We all have the grace of God working for us, yet it is safe to say that some Christians are functioning in higher levels of grace than others.  Grace is more than ‘unmerited favor’. Grace refers to a divine influence on our inward man (spirit man), manifested outwardly for all to see. God deposits or impresses His divine influence in us through His word and by the Holy Spirit.

When the divine influence is at work in our lives, it produces the following:

Acceptability: Something about an individual that attracts them to others.

The beginning God created all things both living and non-living. He created man in His own image. He created man for companionship. He created man man to be fruitful and to dominate the earth but man fell because of sin. In spite of man's sin God made another way to restore the relationship. That is why Jesus came. God came to us because of who He is, not because of who we are. He revealed Himself to us as the God of flesh in diverse ways.          
1. He is love. Jer. 31:3 says "The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee"
