Message: What You Get Is What You Have
Speaker: Dr. Jim Richards
When we discuss “Assurance of Salvation”, it is important that we review the beginning of salvation. When it comes to a right relationship with God, how you get it is how you keep it. There are three truths about assurance we find in this verse.
1. Justification

God declares a believer righteous. Romans 5:1

It is a supernatural act of God! Romans 8:33
2. Works of the Law
All the Mosaic laws both in the ceremonial and moral aspects were given by God and therefore holy and good in themselves. Romans 7:7a, 12

No human deeds, no matter how sincere or extensive, can ever gain a standing before God resulting in justification. Titus 3:5

Works of the law are an attempt to win God’s favor.
3. Faith in Christ

Faith must have as its object the finished work of Christ. Saving faith is a radical gift from God not a human product.

The contrast seen is God’s free initiative in grace versus human efforts toward a self-attained salvation. Galatians 3:11

Justification provides a relationship with God that enables a believer to live righteously. Galatians 5:4-6
DAY 3 – Tuesday, October 27
7:00 p.m. live-streamed only

Message: Blessed Assurance
Speaker: Dr. Jim Richards
1. Affection for the Saints – 3:14

John 13:35

We show we love God when we love each other. Love is the birthmark of every believer.
2. Appropriation of the Spirit – 4:13, 4

Romans 8:9

Without the Spirit, a person is not in God’s family.
3. Acceptance of the Savior – 5: 11-12

John 6:44; 37

To believe on Jesus is to have the twin graces of repentance and faith. It is a sovereign work of God when He brings us to the end of ourselves, enlightens our minds and breathes into our Spirit.
DAY 4 – Wednesday, October 28
11:00 a.m. live-streamed only

Message: An Assurance of Salvation Cooperative
Speaker: Vergil Brown
The culture of discipleship in the local church gives believers assurance of salvation. Church discipline, which is a part of our discipleship commitment to one another, is a loving way of correcting the erring Christian or exposing a false profession.
1. God is committed to reconciliation. – v. 10-14
2. The Lord uses the church to accomplish the work of reconciliation. – v. 15-17
3. The church acts on the authority of Jesus. – v. 18-20
DAY 4 – Wednesday, October 28
7:00 p.m. live-streamed only

Message: The Fruit of the Gospel
Speaker: Vergil Brown
Paul wrote this opening chapter of 1 Thessalonians to highlight God's work of grace through the Thessalonians. He wrote to give them assurance that their faith was sincere; evidenced by their reception of the gospel and their corresponding good works.
1. Faith assured by works – v. 1-3
2. Faith assured by election – v. 4-5
3. Faith assured by repentance – v. 6-10

Fall – Session 8
God Renews

God provides strength for those who trust in Him.
Isaiah 40:18-31

People like being compared to someone who is well respected in
their given field. For example, a person who plays a sport usually
appreciates being compared to an accomplished player in that sport.
However, no one likes being compared to someone or something
beneath him or her. Isaiah understood this truth and proclaimed
that because everything is beneath God, nothing compares to Him.
God alone is worthy of worship and trust, and the one who trusts
in the Lord will not be disappointed.
Who is someone you have been compared to? How can a comparison be
flattering? How can a comparison lead to trouble?
