Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 11/16/2008

Yesterday’s message in the Called series was titled Called to Persevere. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. God does not promise you an easy life.
    A. We live in a fallen world. (Romans 8:18-21)
    B. We should expect trials. (John 16:33; Acts 14:21-22)

II. God does promise to be with you.
    A. He gives you his peace. (Philippians 4:6-7)
    B. He gives you his presence. (Matthew 28:20)

III. God promises great benefits to those who persevere.
    A. Your faith is shown to be genuine. (1 Peter 1:6-7)
    B. You will grow in character. (James 1:2-4)
    C. He who perseveres to the end will be saved.
        (Matthew 24:12-13; James 1:12)
