God’s Glory as the Base of our Courage (Romans 11:33-36)
Matt Chandler only gets three words into this sermon’s text before stopping to exalt our sovereign God. Encouraging pastors to not cow to cultural pressures, Chandler exalts in the strength of God’s omnipotence. Chandler reviews a recent trip he took to Rome, where he saw how the world’s strongest empire—which tried to exterminate Christians—lies in ruins yet Christ’s reigns in victory. Thus, “Christian courage inflamed and informed by the glory of God will be the undoing of every empire against the kingdom of God.” Take heart, brothers and sisters.
