The author of the book of Hebrews tells us we have the very assurance that Jesus is superior to anything and everything else, and through His sacrificial death, believers have…
Bible Text: Hebrews 10:19-25 | Preacher: Seth T. Mulford This passage of Scripture is really the story a lot of us have.  It tells us that those of us who don't know Jesus Christ are condemned already. The wrath of God abides on those who don't know Jesus Christ as Savior. In fact, they don't even want to come to the Light because their deeds are only evil. They don't even want to hear about it, but in our text today, we are told we have boldness to pursue right to the Holy of Holies because of what Jesus Christ did for us. At one point we were enemies of God but now we are made nigh by the blood of Christ that gives us boldness to come to the throne room of Heaven. Praise God that we have that boldness of full assurance  today because our sins are forgiven. So, this morning, let's look at what this idea of having boldness in full assurance is all about.

Living in the Family of God

February 21, 2016
Bible Text: Romans 8:12-17 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace I wish I could say as some universalists and secular humanists do that we are all the children of God, but it's just not so. The Bible never teaches the universal fatherhood of God and brotherhood of man. Not every person on Earth is in the family of God.  If the universalists were correct, Jesus would never have said, "If God were your father, you would love me" (John 8:42), or what He told the Pharisees, that they were of their father, the devil (John 8:44). The Bible says we are the children of wrath and the children of disobedience (Ephesians 2:2-3). We are not by nature the children of God, but we can be adopted into the family of God by receiving Jesus Christ as Savior. Our text this morning talks about what it means to live in God's family.
