In God We Trust
Some revelations to know and embrace, as we consider lasting security.
1. Tragedy may strike anyone.
- Jeremiah 17:9
- Tragic events remind us of the frailty of life and the need to be right with God.
- Jesus wants to stress to his audience the importance of repentance.
2. Ultimate security is found in God.
- "Security is our nearness to God, not our distance from danger".
- Our ultimate security is not found in any man or in the absence of any man. Our ultimate security is found in God alone.
3. There is a real danger in procrastination.
- Jesus has come into the world, and our time of repentance has come.
- There is a serious danger when people continue to refuse to bear fruit for God, and when they continue to refuse to live for him and obey Him.
- Don't sacrifice heaven for the sins of this world.
