Is Salvation or Faith a Gift from God? (LD 7; 1 Corinthians 3:1-15) | 2010-2011 Catechism Sermons

As human beings we want to be self-made people. However, when can this hope of being self made interfere with our Christian life? How does the gospel call us to complete and utter humility? How does knowing Christ call us to renounce ourselves, our wisdom, and call us to humble service? Is this salvation a gift or do we earn it? Or do we just have salvation, but then have to grow our faith? In other words, who really receives the credit for the building of the church and her people? Please stay tuned to our sermon titled Is Salvation or Faith a Gift from God?
