Rescued From Moral Self-Deceptions (Rescued)

January 13, 2019

Reading the book of Romans is like shining a light into darkness. In its pages we see ourselves as we really are. We find that, apart from God’s grace, we are capable of awful things. In fact, we’re morally bankrupt compared to our Creator. In this message we probe the darkness of the human heart, and the amazing light God shines into those hearts that come to believe in Jesus.

If you’re tossed overboard into a stormy sea, the most important thing on your mind is being rescued. It’s life or death. Humanity is overboard in the stormy sea of sin, and even though most people don’t realize it, they’re headed for an eternal death. Sinners need outside help, and so God has put in place a rescue plan from heaven: a plan outlined in the book of Romans.

The night sky over Bethlehem was suddenly ablaze with light. A host of angels appeared, announcing the birth of Jesus. Their audience was a group of terrified shepherds. No wonder the angels’ first words were “Fear not!”

In a world of increasing chaos, people yearn for something to hold onto. The Christmas season reminds us that God Himself invaded human time and space when Jesus was born in Bethlehem. His entrance was announced through a word of hope given by an angel to a young Jewish maiden over two thousand years ago.

It’s human nature to want to be in control and to manipulate circumstances in our favor. The Old Testament patriarch Jacob was a schemer who sought to gain every advantage he could. It took a dramatic intervention in his life for him to realize that God was in control, not Jacob. The lesson he learned is our lesson to learn as well.

How can we please God? How can we know His will? At the end of 1 Thessalonians, Paul gives his readers commands to follow—commands we should all follow, including being thankful no matter what. By obeying these commands, we will not only know the will of God, we will also please Him… always!
