“Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love...” 1 Cor. 13:13
“Blessed hope...” 1 Thess. 4
2. A Home 3:15
a) “God’s Household”
b) “The church of the living God”
Church = ecclesia = “called out”.
Called out as a chosen people, the people of God.
“The living God” emphasizes the deadness of other gods or idols.
The term is used 15 times in the NT
As God said in 2 Cor. 6:16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
Eph. 2:22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
Heb.10:25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
c) “The pillar and foundation of the truth”
“The Bible is the light of our path, the key of the Kingdom of Heaven, our comfort in affliction, our shield and sword against Satan, the school of all wisdom, the glass wherein we behold God’s face, the testimony of His favour, and the only food and nourishment of our souls.” IT IS EVERYTHING!
3. A Hymn
3:16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
a) “He appeared in a body,
was vindicated by the Spirit”
Colossians 2:9 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.
Rom. 1:4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
b) “He was seen by angels,
Was preached among the nations”
c) “He was believed on in the world,
Was taken up in glory.”
John 1:10 – 12 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
