Call in to speak with the host
Sunday Divine Service for 5/18/14 and Pastor Philip Houser’s sermon. The readings and Gospel today were Acts 6 & 7, 1 Peter 2 and John 14. They contain many adjectives. Stephen describes the free men as stiff necked and uncircumcised. By nature there were enemies of God as are we. They stopped their ears and ground their teeth and they stoned Stephen to death. They refused to hear the words of the Gospel. Stephen was doing the work of God but they were ugly and violent.
Sin still remains in us; yet we are chosen by Christ. Peter says we are like new borns and He has given us life. He chooses us - not vice versa. We cannot choose righteousness. No one comes to the Father except through Christ. Our righteous works flow from Christ because of what he did on the cross. Therefore we are saints even though we suffer the effects of the fall. We will be with Him forever in heaven.
