Last Sunday when we came together as the First Baptist Church our sermon text was 1 Corinthians 10:1-22. The title of the sermon was "People of a Jealous God." You can listen to it using the audio player below.
Here are are few quotes from the sermon:
"...though the Old Testament presents several covenants between God and man leading up to the covenant of grace established through Jesus Christ and fully revealed in the New Testament, the Old Testament clearly and consistently teaches that all people are sinners, that all people need to be forgiven of their sins, that God has always had a remnant who were saved by grace through faith in His promises and that God is a jealous God who will not share His glory with another."
"Though there are differences in the Old & New Covenants revealed in the Old & New Testaments, they speak of the same holy, jealous God and this is what we’re going to see in our text today as the Apostle Paul directly references numerous portions of the Old Testament to encourage the Corinthian Christians to live distinctively as the people of God."
Whatever they are, however smooth and deceitful they may be, the world, the flesh, and the devil will present each of us with opportunities to put our hope in other things, to seek pleasure, fulfillment, and security in other things, and to base our identity and reason for living on other things rather than Christ. But we are not helpless. God keeps those who are His. He gives us grace to resist temptation. Grace to run. Grace to flee. Grace to repent when we fall. Grace to be convicted and to hate our sin. Grace to run to the cross."
"God is jealous for us because He loves us. He will not share his glory with anyone else by allowing us to give our worship to anything lesser than Him. And this is in our best interest because He alone can give us with true joy."
