If you ever feel like God is being unfair or that His judgments are too harsh, just remember the enduring patience and boundless love He extended to His rebellious people for 390 years! Today’s sermon reveals the unimaginable lengths God goes to in order to call His people back to Himself, even amidst their defiance. The fact is that God has patiently endured humanity’s betrayal for centuries, and He is still extending His patience to us today. God’s grace outlasts our sin, offering redemption and restoration to all who turn to Him. May we gain a deeper gratitude for God’s mercy and the profound sacrifice that opened the way to redemption through Jesus Christ.
Imagine if someone gave you a very costly gift, but you put it aside and never opened it. You would never do that, and yet there are people who have been saved for years, but they have never opened their spiritual gifts. The Bible warns us not to neglect our spiritual gifts because it is impossible to follow Christ without the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit. Have you ever learned what your spiritual gifts are?
