God's Work is Certain
A Sermon on Romans 8:32
He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? (ESV)
Can God’s love for His children ever change or lessen? Paul is continuing to prove the assurance of salvation for those who are in Christ Jesus. This important subject is the focal point of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones sermon from Romans 8:32 as he argues that our assurance is God’s love for us, and the ultimate act of love was Christ’s sacrifice of His only Son on the cross for us. Paul says that it is impossible for Christ’s love to change because the ultimate sacrifice shows just how far God is willing to go for those who are in Christ. Lloyd-Jones shows how the event of the crucifixion and the context surrounding the event are facts and Paul always proves his arguments using facts and doctrine. What greater assurance than an argument based on facts rather than feelings! If Christ did something so great out of love, how could He ever do anything less than that? What happened on the cross is something that was predetermined before the beginning of time. God did it all; man had no part. God chose to give up His only Son for us and this act of love should inspire us to have an even greater confidence in the salvation that was gifted to us.
