In God We Trust

 

Luke 13:1-9

 

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.
