7 Promises of God – Looking Back

First Saints just finished a great series of sermons. On seven consecutive Sundays we looked at some of the promises God makes in Scripture and explored the deep significance of those promises.

We discovered some surprises along the way! Some of these promises were familiar to us and over time we had built up some erroneous assumptions about what God meant in these passages. In other cases, we discovered that what we thought God was saying was just the tip of the iceberg – God was reaching much deeper than we ever imagined and offering something much greater than we had dared to hope.

With Lent just around the corner, we will be starting a new series of sermons. But before we do let’s pause and look back at the 7 Promises we’ve studied.

  1. God will supply our every need according to his riches in Glory (from Philippians 4:10-20).
  2. God’s grace is sufficient (from 2 Corinthians 12:9).
  3. God has promised us His Presence (from Matthew 28:20).
  4. God has promised that we will not be overcome by temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13).
  5. God has promised that all who believe will be saved (from Mark 16:16).
  6. God has promised that all things work together for good (from Romans 8:28).
  7. God has promised us eternal life (from 1 John 5:11-13).

God’s Word is full of promises – over 3,000 of them! These seven are just a small sample. I hope that they have spoken to you over the last seven weeks just as they have to me.

~ Godspeed
