Pleasing the Lord...Always! (Single Sermon)

November 30, 2014

The Thanksgiving holiday has simple roots. Early settlers to North America were just glad they had something to eat. Today, despite economic troubles and difficult circumstances, most of us have far more than the richest pilgrim back in the 1600s. As believers, we are commanded to be thankful whatever the circumstances.

The Apostle Paul concludes his famous eighth chapter of Romans by listing all the things that cannot separate us from the love of God.  If you are treading some deep water right now and need some encouragement, you have come to the right place.

A death-row inmate faces a grim prospect. Sometimes, a governor will commute his sentence, and even set him free if new evidence is discovered. In a moment, the inmate’s outlook leaps from despair to joy. We all deserve a spiritual death-row sentence. Were it not for the work of Jesus, none of us would escape the just punishment for our sins.

How would you react if you received word that you had just inherited a million dollars from a distant relative?  No doubt it would be hard to believe at first. Later, reality would sink in when the check was handed to you. If you are a believer, you have a check waiting for you at the bank of heaven. And it is worth far more than a mere million.

As a believer matures in the faith, he or she comes to realize that salvation is not so much a result of our seeking God as it is the result of God choosing us.  We will learn that if God had not done this, none of us would ever have chosen Him.

Only the Christian can be certain that all of life is heading toward a future glory. That is why a believer can know that all things, even the bad things, work together for good for those who love God.

It is tough to be optimistic when trudging through life’s tough times. Some people try to grin and bear it; others crack under the pressure. But the Christian can have a perspective that makes enduring troubles possible, a perspective of a future glory that makes our present suffering infinitesimal in comparison.

How would you feel if you got a letter saying that an unknown benefactor had died, leaving you great wealth? You were an heir to a fortune and didn’t even know it. Well, that is exactly what you are as a child of God. In the book of Romans, we read: “The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs….joint heirs with Christ.”

As the economy plummets, we may not find much encouragement in our surroundings.  Many of us are fearful for the future. But for the Christian, this is a good reminder that our real security and treasure lies in the world to come. In the book of Romans, we find that this teaching can transform our outlook as it changes our lives.

Jesus was not content to limit his preaching to the synagogues of His day. While on his way to meet with a man whose daughter had died, a woman in the crowd reached out to touch His garment, thinking that she would be healed of a twelve-year disease. In this brief encounter in Mark 5, we get a glimpse into the heart of Jesus. His heart was indeed a heart of compassion.

Early in the ministry of Jesus, He became known as a healer. Large crowds followed him wherever He went, hoping to be cured of their many ailments. His heart was moved as He saw them as sheep without a shepherd, harassed and helpless. How do we as believers view the great needs around us? Do we share the heart of our Savior?
