"God is Just."
November 5th, 2017 -Pastor Keith Cromie
Have you ever met someone famous?
Perhaps you met an author at a book signing or an athlete who gave you an autograph. You may still have that signed edition or the autographed ball.
How well do you know that person? I suspect you don’t know them at all. Without ongoing relationship, it just isn’t possible to know someone, to really know them.
The amazing message of the Bible is that because of Jesus, we can know God, and I mean really know him. That requires an ongoing relationship, ongoing fellowship, and a personal investment in drawing close to God.
We are nearly to the end of our current series of Sunday messages entitled God is… The privilege of getting to know that God is good, love, holy, and sovereign has encouraged us to stay close to our creator. We have seen how these attributes of God are exemplified in Jesus and how these qualities give us assurance of God’s grace and strength for our lives.
This Sunday we will consider the righteousness of God and the faithfulness of God. What an encouragement to see God’s character through these lenses of truth.
Here are some Scriptures to prepare you to worship our righteous and faithful God.
Deut 32:4 “The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright is he.
Psa. 19:8 …the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes;
Deut. 7:9 Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations….
1Cor. 1:9 God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.
