Sermon of the Day: Helping Each Other Endure to the End

Lamentations 3:22-23

22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.

Good Morning men. I started a Bible plan the other day about leadership. This was the verse of that day and it hit me on different levels.

This verse just humbled me to the core, because nothing I can ever do on my own is worthy of the Lord. Through my sinfulness God chose to still love me.

It took me a little while, but I finally saw the connection this verse has to leadership.

If we really see ourselves for what we are in God’s sight we should become the greatest servants filled with gratefulness and love toward all.

This reminds me of the sermon I sent out the other day by John Piper, titled ‘Is Jesus an Egomaniac?’. John said something along these lines as he compared our sinful desires compared to the glory of God: We were not made to be somebody, we were made to know somebody.

Men, that somebody is Jesus Christ. It is one reason and one reason only we are not consumed. God’s great love for us. Nothing we ever did. Nothing we will ever do, will ever elevate our standing with God. We cannot earn our way into heaven. It is by faith in His Son, and by His grace alone we are saved.
