How can we believe that God is loving when He doesn't intervene as we expect a loving God would? This week, Pastor Lutzer confronts our expectations of love from Romans 8:38-39.
"For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 8:38–39
If you are saved, there is nothing you can do to convince God to love you more and there's nothing you can do to convince God to love you less. This week, come with us as we study the love of God from Isaiah 54:10.
"'For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,' says the LORD, who has compassion on you." - Isaiah 54:10
God not only causes us to be born again, but grants us the faith to respond in belief. This week, we study the attribute of God's great mercy from 1 Peter 1:3.
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." -1 Peter 1:3
The moment we realize we have nothing to offer God is the moment we receive God's mercy and grace. This week, we begin our study on the mercy of God from Ephesians 2:4-5.
"But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved." - Ephesians 2:4-5
Without explanation, do you accept that even the evil in this world will eventually contribute to God’s glory? In this teaching, Pastor Lutzer explains to us the hope in the best possible world from Romans 16:27.
"To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen." - Romans 16:27
Do you trust in God’s manifold wisdom for your life or do you seek your own plan? The Bible tells us that God’s knowledge is so much greater than ours. This week, Pastor Lutzer encourages us from Ephesians 3:9-10.
"To bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in Gid, who created all things, so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places." - Ephesians 3:9-10
