Tithe Sermon pt. 3

6. The opportunity you've all been given to live in this country at this time with this freedom and these opportunities and this material abundance-Where did it come from?
Why weren't you born in North Korea or the Sudan or Iran?

Acts 17:26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.

So we're here at this time in this country by the appointment of God.

Now coming to the most important of these questions:

7. Your faith and salvation, your means to escape the damnation which is the just consequence of your sin and to spend eternity in the glorious presence of Christ and of God, free from pain and sin and with unimaginable joys-Where did that salvation come from?

Ephesians 2:8, 9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

[It's looking like this is going to take more than a few days. ; )]
