This morning’s sermon was titled “God: Does he really care?” focussing on Romans 5:8. Despite the suffering endured by many in this life, God does care. We know because God the Son gave himself for us, becoming a man, to be tried unjustly, to be tortured, to be put to death and to suffer the wrath of the Father. More incredibly, he went through all this not to save perfect people, but to save us – rebellious sinners.
The evening’s sermon was basically the answer to the question, “What is the purpose of life?” (a.k.a “What is the chief end of man?”) Of which the answer, “To glorify God and enjoy him forever” – in everything I do, is humanly impossible to keep, but with the power of God working in us, through faith in Christ, it is possible.
