Title: [09/11/2022 PM] - "Given Faith = Deliverance" - John 5.24-27 / Canons of Dort 1.4, 5 Series: The Canons of Dort Speaker: Rev. Harold Miller Bible: John 5:24 Date: September 11, 2022 The afternoon sermon will be John 5.24 and Canons of Dort 1.4, 5 (see below). I pray that we each find no reason to leave after the first two meals but remain at church to worship God and be fed a third time! ----------------- Scripture Reading: John 5.24-27 Confessional Reading: Canons of Dort 1.4, 5 Text: John 5.24 Message: "Given Faith = Deliverance" ------------- Theme: God's gift of faith in Jesus Christ is the only escape from the judgement to come 1. The Word of Christ tells us of wrath to come and salvation 2. All who refuse to believe will be condemned 3. All who receive and embrace the gospel will be saved 4. All who are saved have been given the gift of true faith Canons of Dort 1.4, 5 Article 4: A Two fold Response to the Gospel God's anger remains on those who do not believe this gospel. But those who do receive it and embrace Jesus the Savior with a true and living faith are delivered through him from God's anger and from destruction, and receive the gift of eternal life. Article 5: The Sources of Unbelief and of Faith The cause or blame for this unbelief, as well as for all other sins, is not at all in God, but in man. Faith in Jesus Christ, however, and salvation through him is a free gift of God. As Scripture says, "It is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is a gift of God" (Eph. 2:8). Likewise: "It has been freely given to you to believe in Christ" (Phil. 1:29).
