“Make Your Calling and Election Sure”

A Change-over from Human Corruption to Divine Excellence!

Scripture:

Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and

godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (2 Pet. 1:1-4).

The nature of a person is best seen in his actions and general demeanour.  A person of gentle spirit will act gently; a person filled with pride will act and speak arrogantly. Similarly, the nature of a dog and that of sheep are unlike; one barks and feasts on fresh meat, the other bleats and chews grass. Click to download the full sermon here
