M2014 s3 more assurance in 2014 1 12-14 sermon

  1. 1. More Assurance in 2014 Come GROW with us!
  2. 2. Assurance ASSU'RANCE, n. ashu'rance. [L. verus; or securus, contracted.] 1. The act of assuring, or of making a declaration in terms that furnish ground of confidence; as, I trusted to his assurances; or the act of furnishing any ground of full confidence. Whereof he hath given assurance to all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. Acts 17. 2. Firm persuasion; full confidence or trust; freedom from doubt; certain expectation; the utmost certainty. Let us draw near with a true heart, in full assurance of faith. Heb 10. 9. In theology, full confidence of one's interest in Christ, and of final salvation.
  3. 3. More Assurance in 2014 We can be Assured of the… 1. Love of God 2. Our Faith 3. Our Salvation Come GROW with us!
  4. 4. The Love of God 1Jn 4:7-9 NKJV Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. (8) He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. (9) In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. Rom 5:8-9 NKJV But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (9) Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
  5. 5. The Love of God Joh 3:16-17 NKJV For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (17) For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 2Co 9:15 NKJV Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! 1Pe 5:5-7 NKJV Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "GOD RESISTS THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE." (6) Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, (7) casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
  6. 6. The Love of God Rom 8:32-39 NKJV He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? (33) Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. (34) Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. (35) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (36) As it is written: "FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE KILLED ALL DAY LONG; WE ARE ACCOUNTED AS SHEEP FOR THE SLAUGHTER." (37) Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. (38) For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, (39) nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
  7. 7. Act 2:36-38 NKJV "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ." (37) Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?" (38) Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 2Ti 1:12-13 NKJV For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day. (13) Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.
  8. 8. Heb 11:1 ESV Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Assurance – hupostasis, lit. a “sitting under” Question: Would you sit under something that you were not sure about?
  9. 9. Heb 10:19-25 NKJV Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, (20) by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, (21) and having a High Priest over the house of God, (22) let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. (23) Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. (24) And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, (25) not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
  10. 10. Salvation Act 17:30-31 NKJV Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, (31) because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead." Heb 9:27-28 NKJV And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, (28) so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
  11. 11. Salvation 1Jn 5:13 NKJV These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know [RAS] that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
