Is Salvation a Matter of Your Free Will… or God’s?

Is Salvation a Matter of Your Free Will… or God’s?

The issue of the gospel is not how do we get sinful people to a holy God; but how does a holy God come to sinful people without violating His holiness and justice? The answer is cross (Heb 2:17). But in evangelism is God a frustrated suitor nervously waiting for sinful man to choose Him? Does man have a free will to choose God; or does God alone have a free will to choose man? (Romans 9:10-24)

Adult Sunday School at 9am

Begin the Lord’s Day with two great Adult classes:

1. Women’s Ministries is now studying “Set Apart.” This is a study of The Beatitudes. The focus is in knowing God’s true happiness for your life which doesn’t come from things, relationships or positive circumstances, but flows from the very holiness of God! This is taught by Cynthia Camp.

2. A study of the book “Respectable Sins” by Jerry Bridges. This is a powerful book on what it means to die daily to the sins we tend to tolerate everyday. The focus here is on the faithfulness, holiness and grace of God to His covenant people!

Have you ever wondered what does it mean to be a man after God’s own heart? How can I please the Lord in the job, home, neighborhood, relationships and friendships that He has Sovereignly placed us? In other words, what are the marks of a man of God?

The apostle Paul answers those important questions for us and gives us practical guide posts for each of our lives to follow in living a life that bears the fruit of the gospel! Our text we will be looking at is 1 Timothy 6:3-20. Though none of us have arrived at this high standard, may we make it our prayerful goal every day to be His men! Amen?

Hope you can join us!
