The Christian Objective in Christ

On December 5, 2016, Pastor Mark Fitzpatrick preached a sermon titled "10 Signs of Saving Grace (1)."  He notes:

"Our objective [as true believers] is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever...We are to be regenerated and transformed by Jesus Christ...by the obedience that only He can grant to our souls...The response is not to say, 'I'm going to be a better person from now on'; that is human religion.  The response is to pray that God would reveal Christ more and more to our souls.  That God would increase our love for Him [Jesus].  That God would gives us heavenly minds.  That God would give us greater appreciation of Jesus Christ so that we might have His mindset, and thereby glorify Him in our lives--[to be] glorious within and glorious without."

Amen.
