The Lie that God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

Selected highlights from this sermon.

“God helps those who help themselves” is not found in the Bible despite the fact that 80% of Americans believe that it is.

When it comes to our salvation, clearly we need God’s help. We can’t even begin to help ourselves in this arena. God initiates the transaction. He offers us the free gift of salvation, He raises us from the dead. He gives us eternal life, not because we’ve done anything, but because He’s done it all.

And once we’re saved, God helps us so that we might do good works to give Him glory. He gives so that we might receive.
