The title of this blog is taken from the famous Jonathan Edwards sermon.
That sermon dealt with the fact that the only thing keeping the ungodly
(unsaved) out of Hell is God. In other words, God keeps such people alive and
out of Hell to give them the opportunity to be saved. How long He gives them is
strictly according to His will not theirs!
Just as this truth shook millions of churchgoers who heard or read this
sermon the same should shake those of us who are believers. The same Bible that
teaches the truth about the unsaved also teaches that while the saved are
secure in the Lord they also are kept from a different judgment purely based on
His will and purpose.
The Florida Gospel Crusade is HERE!
Well almost. It kicks off this Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. and runs through next Wednesday (February 20). This exciting
event has been looked forward to since the completion of the Crusade last year.
And that one was a success!
Futurists and others study the tea leaves of science to determine our future. They tell us about expected medical breakthroughs, the exploration of space, and man’s relation with man. But I think there is one area of life that won’t change much.
Perhaps you don’t consider evangelism important, but Jesus did. He came not only to die for our sins, to take our place, but to give us an example. God’s people are like sheep in need of a shepherd. That is why He gave us pastors and evangelists.
As humans we all want to do something. We (and that includes you) have a tendency to help God by doing it ourselves. You have the right motive and the right solution, but the wrong method. Yielding to God means coming to that place where you simply trust Him enough to let Him have control.
In this passage we have man (David) looking at God. He is overwhelmed by God’s creative power. He looks at the heavens and is amazed at how beautiful and ordered it is. He considers the moon and stars which God ordained and placed in their orbits.
