Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Sermon Notes from Nahum 3:8-19, "Ninevah's Funeral Message (2)" by Tray Earnhart

[The following notes were taken at the 10:45AM service this morning at Kosmosdale Baptist Church. The sermon is available to hear on-line HERE.]

[Continuing from last week's message, the main points of Tray's exposition of the text were as follows:]

I. Comparison of Ninevah to Thebes (vv. 8-11)

II. God's Taunt of Assyria [The Futility of Assyria's Defense] (vv. 12-17)

III. Assyria's Leaders are Oblivious and Its Fall is Final (vv. 18-19)

[As usual, Tray gave a good explanation of the text. The truly great part of the sermon, however, was near the end, as Tray contrasted Jonah 4:9-11, in which Ninevah (Assyria's chief city) was vindicated, with Nahum 3:19, in which God finally pronounced judgment upon Assyria. Tray then made application of the text, telling the congregation: 'You are living between Jonah 4:11 and Nahum 3:19; will you not find the mercy of God in Christ before it is too late?' Then Tray gave a clear presentation of the gospel with a moving call to faith.]
