The Gospel in the Modern World
A Sermon on Hebrews 12:27-29
This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. (ESV)
The condition of the world; questions to be answered; man-made things are being shaken; empires have fallen; reason is challenged; scientific laws are superceded; democracy is shaking; trade is uncertain; morals are declining; man is small and sinful; what he makes will decay; God's Word stands forever; God alone is to be worshipped; man is responsible and will be judged by God; God is preparing a kingdom; Christ is the only way in. Preached at the Stroud Festival in 1977.
