sermon: Remembering Your Vows

John O. Reid (1930-2016)
Given 17-Jun-95; Sermon #188; 73 minutes

Description: (hide)

Like the marriage covenant, counting the cost is the most serious part of the baptismal agreement, not something to be taken lightly. We have to be willing to give up whatever it takes to follow Christ, allowing God to change us from what we have been into what God desires us to become- taking on the divine nature of God. This vow commits us on a course contrary to the world and our carnal nature, a course replete with difficulty and uncertainty, but (with the help and power of God's Holy Spirit) a course leading to incredible rewards if we are determined to keep our vows.
