The Promises of God   12 comments

2 Peter 1, 4

1.  The goodness of God through Jesus Christ is the basis of every offer of mercy.  In him all the promises are yea and amen.

2.  His promises cover every need of heart and life.  “Where sin abounded grace did much more abound.”

(1)  Promises pardon and cleansing to all who repent.  1 Jno. 1, 9; Prov. 2, 8 & 13; Deut. 4, 29

(2)  The Spirit to abide forever as a helper.  Are not left alone.

(3)  In temptation He will make a way of escape.  1 Cor. 10, 13; Jas. 1, 12; Rev. 3, 10; Luke 22, 28

(4)  Will be their help in trouble.  Deut. 33, 25; Job 5, 19; Ps. 91, 15-16; Ps. 138, 7; Isa. 43, 2-5.  Will cause all to work together for their good.

(5)  The resurrection is promised.  Land & sea shall give up their dead.

(6)  Heaven is distinctly promised to the righteous.

All His promises are to the children of God.  None are to the unrepentant.

What great grace offered on such easy terms!
