Passage: 1 Peter 1:25

Let Us Not Be Discouraged

…the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

(1 PETER 1:25)

We preach the gospel of God’s sovereign, free grace in Christ Jesus the Lord; that salvation is in Christ alone, by grace alone, through faith alone, according to the word alone.  For the most part, the message is rejected, but do not be discouraged, it has ever been so! Elijah thought he was the only one left who believed God; Isaiah wrote, “Who hath believed our report and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” (ISAIAH 53:1) When the Lord Himself preached in His hometown of Nazareth, the people marveled at His gracious words when He spoke of the blessings, but when He spoke of sovereign mercy, they tried to kill Him! The Apostle Paul was accused of being a pestilent fellow, a mover of sedition, the ringleader of a sect and was imprisoned for preaching the gospel. But remember, it is written: “‘The word of God is not bound’, ‘My word shall not fail’ and ‘This is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.’”
