Sermon One ~~~ Salvation by Faith

The words written and spoken over two hundred years ago are as fresh today as back then. My favourite line has to be “and being saved from guilt they are saved from fear.” In the Bible it says ‘Do Not Fear’ 365 times, that one time for each day of the year. So how come there is so much fear in the world, in our country, in our churches?

Having trust in the Lord, having assurance and having faith allows us to joyfully sing, joyfully praise the Lord no matter what the trial. And wow don’t we have some trials!

One of those special people in my life has the balance of faith and good works right in their life. It is from the root of faith that good works spring forth, not in our own strength but in the Lord’s strength. When we think of those special people, we see faith in action.

The faith that saves us by the grace of God. We don’t deserve to be saved because we are full of sin, but when we turn to the Lord and confess & surrender our lives to Him, we are saved. Hallelujah! What a Saviour!
