Sermon Outline

As Christians, how should we respond to the tragedy which is unfolding before our eyes? We must go back to the basic promises of God remembering that He:

  1. Has Promised the Salvation of His People (Romans 10:13; John 6:37, 10:28)
  2. Has Promised Suffering among His People (Romans 8:17-18; Philippians 1:29)
  3. Has Promised Sanctification in His People (Romans 8:28; 1 Peter 1:6-7)
  4. Has Promised Security to His People (Romans 8:29-30)

Quotes:

"When you’ve passed through your own fiery trials and found God to be true to what He says, you have real help to offer. You have firsthand experience of both His sustaining grace and His purposeful design." ~ David Powlison

"There is no maverick molecule if God is sovereign." ~ R.C. Sproul
