Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #181

TEXT: Romans 8:28-31

Today, we return to the journey of Christian -- the main character of Pilgrim's Progress. When we last saw him, he was talking to Mr. Worldly Wiseman who tried to convince him that he should turn to the ways of the world in order to ease his burden of sin. Christian unfortunately follows Mr. Worldly Wiseman's advice and heads to the city of Morality. However, along the way, Evangelist comes to meet him, and informs him of the dangers of following such worldly advice. 
Christian accepts Evangelist's advice and commits himself to following the straight and narrow way until he gets to the Wicket Gate. At the gate, he is let into the palace where he is given advice on his journey from a man named Goodwill and a man named Interpreter. Interpreter takes Christian on a tour of the castle showing him various rooms which contain scenes depicting certain realities of life for the believer. 

What the interpreter shows Christian is a picture of the work of Christ in the life of the believer. It is like a fire that burns and burns but never burns out. Rather it grows brighter and brighter as time goes on. 
Let's look at the significance of this fire in the life of a Christian.
1. Notice the One who started the fire and keeps it burning. 

2. Notice the one who is trying to extinguish the fire. 

3. We may not always feel the heat from the fire, but we know that it is still burning. 

We are being made into the image and likeness of Jesus Christ. That is the destiny that has been predetermined for us, and because God cannot lie, we can rest assured that we will reach that destination.
