Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

Assurance from Endurance—1 John 5:18-21

John reminds his readers that the one who is truly born of God will endure in holiness, gradually being purified from sin and untouchable by the evil one. Children kept by the King ought to look drastically different than those who are under “the sway of the evil one.” God has enabled us to serve the one true God. So God’s children must not allow anything to rule them but the Lord. Are our spiritual children being purified from sin? Do they wrongly excuse themselves with a “devil made me do it” view? Satan does tempt, but God’s children can resist because Christ keeps them. Finally, what idols do we allow our teens to serve? There is one God who offers real life. All other things that rule us destroy us. Endure in holiness, serve the Lord alone, and know you are truly God’s child.
