Sermon: 2 Cor. 1:21-22
turn with me to
2 Cor. 1:21-22
21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts
INTRO: With Thanksgiving closing in on us quickly this message will hopefully prepare our hearts to be thankful. Often we get so involved in everyday life that we take for granted the things the Lord has given us and all that we have in Him. Pause with me today and consider just how blessed we are. If you have accepted Christ as your lord and Savior you are indeed blessed beyond measure. If you have not, then hopefully this message will help entice you by sharing what blessings we have in Christ.
I. he Stablisheth us . v. 21
One definition of the word “Established” is “continuation or permanence.” According to the Word of God we have been established, with permanence, to one another in a continual relationship.
Rom 12:5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
If I may slip a word in here that tells in terms we understand in today’s society…We are part of the FAMILY of God. We are a permanent part. We may not always honor the position but we’re still family, continually. Nothing makes you feel more accepted than knowing you are part of the group. This group is not just a club or fellowship but FAMILY. Being part of the family entitles us to several things…
Romans 8:1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.
Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus
Nothing shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ
We are sanctified in Christ Jesus
We have hope in Christ.
We have rejoicing in Christ.
We’re a new creature in Christ.
We have liberty in Christ.
Gal 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus
We are blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ
We have peace in Christ.
This is only a partial list of the wonderful things we have “In Christ.” The list actually goes on and on of the provision that has been made for us as Family members of God’s Family.
Stop with me for just a moment and consider what you Got………
