The Guaranteed Game – A Sermon on Assurance

Hebrews 10:19-25 19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 1.0 (Since) We receive from him: Cleansing having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Ezekiel 36:25–26 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you …26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Titus 3:5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit… Hebrews 9:9 This is an illustration for the present time, indicating that the gifts and sacrifices being offered were not able to clear the conscience of the worshiper. Where is that knocking coming from? What’s happening to me, that I’m frightened of every noise? Whose hands are these? Will all great Neptune’s oceans wash this blood clean from my hand? No, instead my hands will stain the seas scarlet, turning the green waters red – William Shakespeare, Macbeth. Hebrews 9:14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! 2.0 (Let us) come to him with: 2.1. Sincere hearts let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings… Phil 3:10 – I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection. Physical blessing vs spiritual blessings. Ephesians 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life…. Daniel 3:16-18 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” “My wife and I would want the world to know this… We don’t follow God because we have some sort of under-the-table deal with Him, like, we’ll follow you if you bless us. We follow God because we love Him. It’s our honor. He is the God of the hills and the valleys. And He is beautiful above all things.” – TobyMac 2.2.
