A Sermon on John 1:10-12
He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, (ESV)
Is there anyway to predict the future? Can we tell what life will hold? Absolutely not! We live in a world of endless uncertainty that we cannot know in advance. Lloyd Jones opens the gospel of John and shows us the firm foundation that gives those who are saved total security, peace, and even joy in the worst of trouble. We are living in God’s world and under his sovereign control. The meaning behind events is hidden from us, but it is known and designed by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Lloyd Jones shows how God permits evil to exist in the world as a means of teaching, instructing, and showing the need for salvation. No matter how dire the circumstances, the providence of God is at work to care for His world, and show compassion for His children. The plan of God to save sinners will not be undone.
