If I [as a Christian] commit a sin, I am “conscious” of my sin as a child, not as a convicted felon, and I confess my sin to God as a son confesses to his father, not as a criminal confesses to a judge. I come with confidence into the holy place by the blood of Jesus.
– Charles Leiter
Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road; make me a fork, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.
– Jim Elliot
1927 – 1956
Phil Johnson exposits 1 John 4:19 in your sermon of the week, The Glory of Sovereign Love.
“We love, because He first loved us.”
Johnson provides five points from this passage, all of which attest to the doctrines of grace:
1. The perverseness of our fallen state.
2. The priority of God’s electing choice.
3. The Particularity of God’s saving work.
4. The power of God’s loving deliverance.
5. The perfection of God’s redemption plan.
