INEVITABLE: Judgment - A Sure Thing

Matthew 13:24-30 by Art Stansberry

We began this sermon series reading from Hebrews 9:27, where the writer says, "it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." This Sunday we will unpack what the writer meant when he spoke of "Judgment". What we will discover is that there are separated judgments: one for the believer and one for the unbeliever. Our hope this Sunday is not to leave you with a heavy heart, but that we might be encouraged by what we read in scripture concerning judgment. I am reminded of Paul's words in Romans 6:4, "We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life." We will discover how our belief, repentance, confession of Jesus, and our baptism can give us confidence as we face the coming judgment.
