The Kindness and Severity of God

Romans 11:1-24                   June 28, 2015              Link for audio/video/manuscript 

The fear of God’s severity opens the eyes of our hearts to see the depth of God’s kindness in that we have been painfully and undeservedly chosen and called and saved by God through Jesus Christ to be grafted into the eternal family tree of God – along with the chosen people of God that began with Abraham. God’s Words today should saturate us with profound humility in that the origin of our faith as a gift from God and the nature of our faith in Christ leaves no room for boasting in ourselves, but shifts all the weight of boasting over onto God who through Jesus has given us grace upon grace!
