Grace Fellowship: Our Need for God's Sovereign Love

Two Little Words That Say “I Love You”

Listen: Full Message


The fact that God sent his Son to sacrifice himself to save the very people that want to kill him.

Spurgeon: I take it that the highest proof of Christ’s power is not that he offers salvation, not that he bids you take it if you will, but that when you reject it, when you hate it, when you despise it, he has a power whereby he can change your mind, make you think differently from your former thoughts, and turn you from the error of your ways.

So why would he do this? Let’s continue

[Read Eph 2:7-9 - Everyone]

7so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

We see that this plan of God’s is to show his grace towards sinners like us. Can you think of anything more loving/gracious/merciful then to save not only a people that are dead but are at war with you?
