“The Sovereign Character of God”

Romans 9:1-29                       June 6, 2015              Link for audio/video/manuscript

God is holy and must punish sin; but God is also loving and desires to save sinners. If everybody is saved, it would deny His justice and His holiness; but if everybody is lost, it would deny His grace and His love. The solution to the problem is God’s sovereign choosing of those who will come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Romans 9 is indeed a glad text which should lead us to rejoice. When understood correctly God’s choosing provides great confidence, great humility, and great gratitude for the Christian. Let us reverently accept the fact that God is greater than we are. God knows more than we know, He knows what He is doing, and everything He does will always be consistent with the glory of His character.
