Ten with Ten Pounds, Part 1

“So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten pounds. ‘Put this money to work,’ he said, ‘until I come back.'” – Luke 19:13

Everything is a gift from God and He expects us to put it to work for His Kingdom.

The Doctrine of Imputed Righteousness

“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—“ – 1 Cor. 1:30

The doctrine of imputed righteousness plainly stated.

The Lord is our help and our shield

“Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, Because we have trusted in His holy name. Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, Just as we hope in You.” – Psa. 33:20-22

The Lord is our help and our shield.

The Eye of the Lord

“Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.” – Psa. 33:18-19

God watches over, delivers, and keeps those who fear Him and hope in His mercy.

Not One Thing Has Failed

“And you know in all your hearts and in all your souls that not one thing has failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spoke concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one word of them has failed.” – Joshua 23:15

God is faithful: perfectly faithful, totally faithful, and lovingly faithful.

I have many people in this city

“Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.” – Jesus (Acts 18:9-10)

This should be a great encouragement to evangelize.

A Horse is a Vain Hope

“No king is saved by the multitude of an army; A mighty man is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a vain hope for safety; Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.” – Psa. 33:16-17

Only God saves, delivers, and is a real hope.

He fashions their hearts individually

“The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men. From the place of His dwelling He looks On all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works.” – Psa. 33:13-15

God is sovereign over all people of every nation.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord

”The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.” – Psa. 33:10-12

God is sovereign over the nations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Cursed is the nation whose god is NOT the Lord.
