From Kings to the KING
"Responding To The Boundless Grace Of God"
April 15, 2018. Pastor Joe Hellerman continues our series in Kings with a message from 1 Kings, Chapter 20.
Chapter 20 shows King Ahab hearing the word of the LORD from a prophet, and repeatedly receiving great grace and victory from Yahweh - as the prophet said, "...(so) that you may know that I am the LORD."
We can ask ourselves, "Was Ahab a 'deserving' candidate for the grace of God?" and answer that by reading our bibles - "No." The question that follows, is: "Am I deserving of God's grace?" Is anyone?
Pastor Joe's message leaves us with some great take-way: 1) Faith that lasts seldom comes from extraordinary experiences, 2) Faith that lasts responds to grace with obedience, and 3) Faith that lasts comes from hanging out with the right people - those who choose to walk in obedience and integrity before the Lord.
