God's Love and Teachings for His Children
Sermon; #1548B; 44 minutes
God lovingly and tirelessly teaches His children, just as a perfect parent. As children cry out to their parents, so human nature drives God's people to complain to Him: "I can't do it," "I'm afraid," "It's not worth it" and "I'm always frustrated." To the cry, "I can't do it," God assures His children that all things are possible (Philippians 4:13), that He is able to make all grace abound in them (II Corinthians 9:8) and that He who watches over Israel never sleeps (Psalm 121: 4). To the cry, "I'm afraid," God responds that He has not given His children a spirit of fear, but one of power (II Timothy 1:7). To the cry "It's not worth it," God teaches that all things work together for good for those called by God (Romans 8:28) and that there is nothing to compare to the glory His children will receive through yielding to His purpose for them (Romans 8:18). To the complaint, "I'm always frustrated," God counsels His children to cast all their fears upon Him, refusing to grovel in self-pity. God's children, when living in the light of His truth, have no reason at all to complain (Galatians 4:6).
