Is God the Friend of Sinners? (Luke 7:31-35)Tommy Boring, May 10, 2015
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Some take it for granted that you will have another chance to get saved. In order to be saved you must first be convicted of your sin. Do you believe that God is a friend of sinners? God will judge of sin. There is a place that was created that has the opposite of joy and peace where God will not be. It was not created for you but for Satan and his angels. If you deny Jesus Christ you will surely be in the horrible place called Hell. Just because you attend a church or are a member of one doesn't mean that you are born again. Being born again is not about who you're kin to or what someone says. Salvation can not be manufactured under your own will. It doesn't matter where you've been or what you've done, you can still be born again. Some treat salvation as something that you can pick up and lay down only when you need it. Today is the day of salvation. When the Spirit of God moves, that is the time to be born again because only God controls conviction. Repeating a prayer doesn't save a person if the conviction of sin is not there with the drawing from Jesus Christ. One can't save ones self. Just because you read the bible or have a family that attends church or just because you've been baptized doesn't mean that you've been born again. You can't go through your life denying God and then claim Him in the end of your life. God gave us all the ability to make a choice. When God calls you, you WILL know and when He calls, that is the only time, chance that you will have to accept His calling. He only promised to call you one time. Conviction is Devine. When you really get under conviction you won't care what's around you if you really want to be saved.

31And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? 32They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept. 33For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil. 34The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! 35But wisdom is justified of all her children. (KJV)
