Out of Impotence

OUT OF IMPOTENCE

Genesis 1:2a

by Pastor Glem Melo

1. The Omnipotent’s heart and focus

a. His love for the earth: God created the earth.

b. His love for man: God created the earth for us.

c. His love for His Son: God created the earth and man for Christ.

– Thank, praise and worship God. He created the universe for you.

– Glorify Christ with your life. God created you for His Son.

2. The impotence of what the Omnipotent’s heart and focus is on

a. The earth was a desolation, and emptiness, and darkness was deep and pervasive.

b. Desolation, emptiness and darkness are symbols of God’s judgment for sin.

c. In His sufferings, death, and burial, Christ came under God’s curse of desolation, emptiness, and deep, pervasive darkness.

– Confess your spiritual impotence before the Lord, and repent.

– Thank, praise, and worship Christ, the omnipotent God the Son, who came under the curse of desolation, emptiness, and deep, pervasive darkness to save and re-create us.

3. The Omnipotent’s lighting, forming, and filling work for the impotent

a. Both creation and new creation are out of desolation, emptiness, and deep, pervasive darkness.

b. The successful accomplishment of God’s work of creation guarantees the successful accomplishment and consummation of His work of new creation in Christ.

Application

– Be comforted and strengthened in Christ crucified and raised from the dead. Your salvation and re-creation is secure because of His omnipotent grace for us, impotents.

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.

    Reblogged this on Salvation in Christ and commented:

    In Genesis 1:2, the earth was a desolation, and emptiness, and darkness was deep and pervasive. On the cross, Christ came under God’s curse of desolation, emptiness, and deep, pervasive darkness. In Him, the new creation has begun. Listen to the whole sermon: http://glemmelo.com/2016/02/29/out-of-impotence/
