1 Corinthians 15:58
On July 8th, 1741, a man by the name of Jonathan Edwards preached what has been dubbed, the greatest sermon to have ever been preached on American soil. The sermon was titled, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”. Nothing was spared the hearers, as Edwards expounded to his sleepy listeners, the certain fiery punishment that awaited the unbelievers and their desperate need to flee to the Saviour for refuge! As believers in Christ, we rejoice in Christ for His saving grace wherewith we have been gloriously saved from such an end. However, in light of the coming resurrection when Christ shall burst the heavens and come back for His own, we are not to be found idle.
This sermon is an exhortation for us in Christ to be busy in the work of the Lord until He comes. For those unsure of their call, it’s time to seek the Lord. For those who know their call and yet are slumbering, it is a wake-up call to arise so as to set the hand to the plough!
