The bill lies unpaid on the dresser. The lump in your breasts is never examined. The feelings of guilt are never resolved. Many times we don't do anything because we do not want to face the truth. We don't want to face the fact that we can't pay the bill. We are afraid of what the doctor will tell us if we get examined for the lump in the breast. We keep hoping that the feelings of guilt will just go away. Eventually, we all have to face the truth. Sometimes we face them when its too late.

Does everyone get into heaven the same way? Are all the religions equally valid? There are many who would say that even the Jews will get a special deal with God. Can that be true? Let's see what the Bible says.

God is faithful even if we aren't. He is faithful to His mission to redeem creation. He is faithful to His word. He is faithful to us. He is faithful to save us even if we are unfaithful. He gives grace. He forgives. He seeks for us to come home. His faithfulness is truly unwavering.

This message has three points: God chose the Jews. He also chooses the believers today. How does He do it without violating free will? The sign of the covenant is baptism today. There are three reasons we are baptized. We are to carry the gospel to the world. We do this with words and with changed lives. The secret to a changed life is in forgiveness.

The Bible includes over 500 times that people are told not to be afraid. Yet, people think that God has come to scare them. The fear of the Lord is not the same as being afraid of Him. The Lord Jesus came so that we would know God, the Son. Knowing the Son is knowing the Father. So, God has giving us reasons that we should not fear. He has a great future planned for us. He is for us always. He has everything we need and is willing to give it to us. Why should we fear?
