SAVED                                     Page 5
V. 9 (cont’d.)

** Why is that? Why is God so patient with sinful man?

Because He is not willing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

** If God is not willing for us to perish, what is His will regarding our eternal condition?

For the elect, here is the first statement of God’s expressed will for us - that we be saved!
cf. 1Timothy 2:3-4, Ezekiel 18:23 and 32

** Did you notice what activity is experienced by those who are not perishing?

They are the ones who have come to repentance! cf. Acts 20:21

It is not enough to know about God, or Jesus Christ. Once we understand who God is and who we are as sinners, we must repent and ask Jesus for forgiveness. cf. Acts 2:36-38, 1John 1:9

** The only way to live in the center of God’s will and thus be “Led by the Spirit” is to first become saved. These are the individuals who are said by Scripture to “do the will of God”.

Mars Hill (in Him we live, move and have our being...for we are His offspring)
cf. Acts 17:24-28

Because of God’s will we are saved; and know the One who is our Lord and Savior.
cf. John 10:27-30

Because of God’s will we are saved; and obey Him as Lord and Master.
cf. Mark 3:31-35

We become the brother and sister and mother of Jesus by doing God’s will so as to be saved and by living in obedience to the One we have called Lord. True salvation will always equal obedience to the will of God.

Because of God’s will we are saved; and we are not like the world around us which is perishing. Our joy and calling is to do the will of God and to not love the things of this world.
cf. 1John 2:15-17

V.10 ** Let’s finish our look at “The Promise” of God to judge this world. According to verse ten, is there going to be a final judgment upon this fallen earth?

Yes, God is faithful to His promise and He will bring it in “as a thief” and destroy the earth.
cf. Isaiah 24:18-23
