Getting Conversion Right, Part 2 of 4

May 10, 2012
In a well-known parable, Jesus compared the spreading of the Gospel to the way a sower spreads seed on the ground. Believers realize that it's not their skill that brings people to Jesus. The grows if, and only if, God gives the increase — just as Paul wrote to the Corinthian church. Let's take a closer look at the sower and the soils into which the seed is sown.

Not everybody in the crowd understood Jesus when He taught. He used stories to teach — stories we call parables. The parables used real-life situations to depict spiritual truth. The crowds heard illustrations of farmers, servants, prodigal sons, and those who tended to vineyards. Today we begin a series on ten of these parables, beginning with the sower and his seed.

Most people go about their everyday lives with no regard for the eternity they'll face as sheep or goats. When Jesus spoke of coming judgment in Matthew 25, He made it clear that there are only two destinies for any of us. Today we'll hear some concluding thoughts about the future and why today is the day to believe on Christ — the only One who can save us.

Jesus once spoke of a coming judgment for the nations — a judgment that is designed to separate the sheep from the goats. Today we'll try to understand what the prediction means in Matthew 25 in light of the rest of the New Testament.

On our plane of existence, things are a mess: terrorism, wars, nuclear threats, the Middle East in turmoil. Aren't you glad there's Someone in charge Who lives on another plane of existence? God hasn't left nations to their own devices. His unseen hand is guiding the forces of history toward its conclusion. Through the Bible's prophecy, we can understand the final chapter of the story.

An Alabama courthouse. A granite monument engraved with the Ten Commandments. A judge who believed they should stay there. The struggle over the public viewing of God's law led to Chief Justice Roy Moore being ousted from office. God is being systematically excluded from public life, and today we'll learn more about His judgment on America.

Somewhere along the line, we got the idea that God's only desire for America is to bless her — no matter what her people do. We need to understand that God judges the nations when they violate His commands. He judged His own nation, Israel, by using the armies of nearby pagan nations against it. Today Dr. Lutzer will share more details about God's purposes among the nations, and why we should not assume that if "you're okay, I'm okay."

Many of us have the idea that God owes us a favor. After all, we're Americans, the defenders of democracy. But as we run the race of life, we should ask ourselves if God really owes us anything. After examining the evidence, we may just have to conclude that what He owes us is His judgment.

The blessings of God are not constitutional rights. They are bestowed on people and nations that follow His commands. God’s judgment on the nations takes many forms: natural disasters, the deprivation of personal freedoms, wars, and deafened ears toward God. Tune in today as we take a look at two final forms of judgment which are very evident in America today.

When children disobey, parents discipline them in different ways. Likewise, when God judges a nation, He also has many ways of doing it. As events seem to be spinning out of control around us, let us review the means by which God may judge our nation in the days ahead.

The Bible gives us words of encouragement as well as words of warning. It is our obligation to understand and heed both. Few of us would make the wrath of God our first choice for a Bible study. Yet God’s prophets thundered the words of His judgment to the people of their day. God’s warnings to the nations have not changed.
