    As Paul begins to deal with the questions of God's original election of the Jews and the later inclusion of the Gentiles, Paul drives home the point that God is sovereign.

    A. It has been said: “There are two sure things in life: 1. There is a God; 2. You are not Him!” 1. I would like to add a third sure thing: “And this God, whom you are not, is sovereign and can do whatever He decides to do.” 2.

    As we move into chapters 9-11, Paul addresses the deep theological topics of God's election, predestination and sovereignty. Paul does this to answer the baffling questions surrounding the Jewish people's rejection of Jesus. A lot of this sermon is based on a sermon by Dan Williams.

    A. Last Sunday’s Friend Day was certainly uplifting to me, I hope it was for you as well! 1. We had a number of visitors, and we had a special fellowship meal. It was a great day! B.

    A. Welcome to Friend Day. 1. Every year when Friend Day arrives, I get really excited, because I know that Friend Day is often a day of new beginnings. 2.

    Paul ends Romans 8 with an amazing crescendo that helps us have great confidence in God as our protector, defender and keeper.

    Introduction: A. How many of you remember the Tom and Jerry cartoons? 1. Tom, the cat, was always trying to catch and eat, Jerry, the mouse. 2. The series was rather silly, predictable, and filled with slapstick violence. 3. In one of the cartoon stories, Jerry rescued Spike, the bulldog, from ...read more
