feast: Our Awesome Destiny
The Kingdom of God
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 30-Sep-93; Sermon #FT93-03; 82 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, reflecting on man's ultimate destiny to have dominion over the entire universe (Genesis 1:26; Hebrews 2:8), admonishes that preparation for this awesome responsibility requires faithful stewardship over the things God has entrusted to us (our bodies, families, possessions, etc.)?dressing, keeping, and maintaining those things, overcoming and growing, building character, and making use of the gifts God has given us. Though salvation along with the will and power come from God, the character must come from our effort at overcoming (Philippians 2:12). In the seeming delay of the Bridegroom (Matthew 25:5), we must rouse ourselves from our slumber and diligently prepare for His return.
