Sunday Worship Homily
“The Goal of Personal Salvation”
Isaiah 1:10-17 – We should worship God not just with outward action but with sincere hearts. God promises that when we obey Him with our whole heart, we will experience the best of the land.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-13 – We are to love God’s truth and righteousness. The work of deception will only work for people who hated the truth.
“Hold fast the blessings which God’s grace made available to you.”
“The Goal of personal salvation is learning to walk in His ways while we are here on earth.”
- (v.1-7) Immediately take hold of the opportunities made available by God’s grace.
- (v.8-10) Hold fast to what you have received from His grace.
