sermon: Teaching Us To Think (Part Three): Proving God's Will

Living Righteously With Christ

Given 09-Jan-21; 76 minutes

Description: (hide)

God Almighty is a manufacturer of righteous character and has chosen to run every one of His "products" through rigorous testing to ensure maximum quality control. As God tests His people, He desires that they test and prove His Laws to demonstrate that they invariably work. Instead of taking God's counsel on blind faith, God wants His people to prove these principles by choosing to follow them (and thereby receiving blessings) or disregarding them (thereby receiving curses). As when a person acquires a new car, each child of God must take His teachings "for a spin" to see how they respond in real life. Assenting that God's ways are right is only the first step on the way to sanctification. The Scriptures urge God's people to test and retest His commands (I Thessalonians 5:21, I John 4:1), enabling them to rest assured that they are foolproof. Like father Abraham, God's people incrementally build faith by obeying His commands, even when they cannot immediately see the results. God's people cannot afford to waste precious time, but must use discernment to prove God's will, choosing to bear abundant spiritual fruit, glorifying Him.
