The Supernatural Power of God
A Sermon on Acts 7:17-20
“But as the time of the promise drew near, which God had granted to Abraham, the people increased and multiplied in Egypt until there arose over Egypt another king who did not know Joseph. He dealt shrewdly with our race and forced our fathers to expose their infants, so that they would not be kept alive. At this time Moses was born; and he was beautiful in God's sight. And he was brought up for three months in his father's house, (ESV)
The Christian message is one of God’s intervention in human history. In it, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones proclaims, we see God working in and amongst men to bring about the salvation of the world through His Son, Jesus Christ. You cannot reject the miraculous aspect of Christianity without rejecting the heart of the Christian faith because at the heart of the Christian religion stands Jesus Christ. He was true man and true God, born of a virgin. He lived a life that was filled with many miracles and acts of divine providence. He died a death of atonement upon the cross. He was buried and rose from the dead. As Lloyd-Jones describes, modern men rejects the supernatural nature and work of Christ saying it is unscientific and primitive to claim that God acts in a way that breaks the laws of nature. Yet, it is God who invented the laws of nature, and nature itself. He lives outside the boundaries He made for man. Our message is not one of further explanation of the natural law, but of a confrontation with a supernatural call to repent and believe in Jesus Christ!
