Delivered from wrath
Today was communion service, and it was necessary to remind the brethren of what Jesus did for us. I spoke about the fact that we have been delivered from wrath.
I started with 1 Thessalonians 1:10 which says, “And to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.”
I made it clear to the brethren that wrath is coming (2 Peter 2:9). I also told them that even now, the wrath of God is upon every unbeliever (John 3:36), which is why we must preach the gospel. I told them too, according to Romans 1:18, that even today, men still experience the wrath of God.
Yes, we are in the dispensation of grace, but it’s only in Christ that we are safe. Jesus reconciled us with the Father, so we have peace with God (Romans 5:1, Ephesians 2:16).
The new creation is a “delivered man”. We are truly free in Christ! John 8:36
Other scriptures I shared are:
1 Thessalonians 5:9 – “For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Romans 5:9 – “Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”
