Out of Impotence

OUT OF IMPOTENCE

Genesis 1:2a

by Pastor Glem Melo

1. The Omnipotent’s heart and focus

a. His love for the earth: God created the earth.

b. His love for man: God created the earth for us.

c. His love for His Son: God created the earth and man for Christ.

– Thank, praise and worship God. He created the universe for you.

– Glorify Christ with your life. God created you for His Son.

2. The impotence of what the Omnipotent’s heart and focus is on

a. The earth was a desolation, and emptiness, and darkness was deep and pervasive.

b. Desolation, emptiness and darkness are symbols of God’s judgment for sin.

c. In His sufferings, death, and burial, Christ came under God’s curse of desolation, emptiness, and deep, pervasive darkness.

– Confess your spiritual impotence before the Lord, and repent.

– Thank, praise, and worship Christ, the omnipotent God the Son, who came under the curse of desolation, emptiness, and deep, pervasive darkness to save and re-create us.

3. The Omnipotent’s lighting, forming, and filling work for the impotent

a. Both creation and new creation are out of desolation, emptiness, and deep, pervasive darkness.

b. The successful accomplishment of God’s work of creation guarantees the successful accomplishment and consummation of His work of new creation in Christ.

Application

– Be comforted and strengthened in Christ crucified and raised from the dead. Your salvation and re-creation is secure because of His omnipotent grace for us, impotents.

About New Hope

We are a community of people who believe in and live for Jesus Christ. We embrace and proclaim the Gospel as taught in the Bible and explained in the teachings of the Reformation: Salvation is by grace alone (sola gratia) because of Jesus Christ alone (solus Christus), received through faith alone (sola fide), based on the teachings of the Bible alone (sola scriptura), all for the glory of God alone (soli Deo gloria). SALVATION IS BY GRACE ALONE, THROUGH FAITH ALONE, BECAUSE OF JESUS CHRIST ALONE, BASED ON THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE ALONE, ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD ALONE.
