Many non-believers think that the Christian faith consists of a God who commands rules into our lives. You “shall not” do this or you “shall not” do that, as with the 10 commandments. There is some truth in that but it’s not a complete picture of Christianity. There are many amazing promises for believers, some of these are “shall not” promises.
Using John’s gospel, there are 4 amazing “shall not” promises that each believer should hold on to every day:
- Shall not hunger and shall never thirst again
- Shall not walk in darkness
- Shall not come into condemnation
- Shall not perish, but have everlasting life
Steve recently delivered the sermon at St Andrews Baptist Church looking at these 4 promises in more detail. They should be an encouragement for every believer and we hope they strengthen you as we await our coming King.
Feel free to listen below:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 NIV)
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.(Revelation 21:4 NIV)
