This means that the saints that reign with Christ for 1000 years are people who have been come into the likeness of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ; these are the saved. It is the saved that reign with Christ for 1000 years. Consider what Peter says in 1 Peter 2:9, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
In this sermon we will examine the statement, “To The Blind He Gives Sight.” He does this because there is, 1) A Need–the blind need to see, 2) A Name–only He has this authority, 3) A Notion–the blind who see will tell others, 4) A Nation–the blind who see will believe and worship together, and 5) A Night–an eternal blindness is coming for those who do not see. I want to impress upon each hearer that God wants all men to be saved and to come to the truth and to help the congregation become more evangelistic.
When we have a right attitude toward God, we will 1) Fear God, 2) Worship God, 3) Love God. The hearer should have a fundamental idea of what it means to be godly: have a right attitude toward God.
How intelligent are we really? Not very, if we are willing to sacrifice relationships for our own pride. Lack of love is the culprit.
