The culture of our nation has rejected the knowledge of God, refused the fear of the Lord, and chosen man’s way over God’s. This has and will continue to result in a “covenant of death.” Death being eternal separation from God.

The Apostle Paul gives three distinct actions of God in Romans chapter one. “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness…(Romans 1:24). “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections…” (Romans 1:26). “…God gave them over to a reprobate mind…” (Romans 1:28).

God in His Word has repeatedly offered His call to salvation. Yet, for the most part, His call has been rejected. As long as God is rejected, He will not give ear to our nations cries of distress. Because man did not, God will not. Because of man’s obstinate behavior this “covenant of death” will continue to bring eternal separation from God. However, those who choose to listen to God and submit to His divine will shall never see the “covenant of death.”

The call to salvation is universal, and those who answer will never be turned away. Eternal life and security are given to all who come to God in faith believing. To spurn the goodness and grace of God brings forfeiture of all that is good.

Thought for today: Thoughts that are constant will eventually become action; action becomes character, and character becomes destiny.

Sermon: What Jesus left the church. Acts 1:1-11.
