The importance of clarity
The Importance of Clarity

“When a man does not make me know what he means it is because he does not himself know what he means.”

C.H Spurgeon

in ourselves.

Acts 20:24

“But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, in order that I may finish my course, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God.


Theology of grace
Theology of Grace

Galatians 3:21

I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died needlessly.

Romans 11:6

If by grace, then it is no more of works: otherwise grace is not grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Negative Legalism

Works and the Law are NOT

in opposition to Grace

they are antithetic to Grace

Positive Legalism


Message of grace

The bible teaches what the world demonstrates to be true,

that all have sinned

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

The first problem is I did it…

Cyanide illustration, or Treason illustration

The second problem is I can not do anything about it

Absolute standard Illustration

This is not the worst problem

Penalty


Message of penalty
Message of Penalty

If God des not judge sin, then He is not God

Judge and son illustration

His declaration for the penalty is death

Romans 6:23 The wages for sin is death

Illustration – absence of all good, worst day ever

We are guilty, and can do nothing about it, unfortunately neither can God!



Message of dilemma
Message of Dilemma

The Holiness of God

The Justice of God

The Love of God

The Mercy of God

The Dilemma of God is NOT

vs.

The Dilemma of God IS

How can a Holy and Just God

declare a guilty person innocent

and free them from the penalty of sin

Romans 3:26

for the showing, I say, of his righteousness at this present season:

that he might himself be just, and the justifier of him that hath faith in Jesus.


God’s work in declaring the believer righteous

by grace thought faith

in the finished work of Christ

Substitution


Message of substitution
Message of Substitution

Christ solved the “I have sinned problem.”

He died in my place

Christ solved the “I can do nothing about it problem.”

He rose again to give me new (eternal ) life

Romans 4:25 who was delivered up for our trespasses, and was raised for our justification.

Romans 5:1 Being therefore justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ;

I Peter 3:18 Because Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit

Romans 3:24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; 25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith.


Message of substitution1
Message of Substitution

God loved us and sent His Son to die for us

Romans 5:8

Judge and son illustration

The Great exchange II Cor. 5:21

He took our sin

He gave us His right standing with God

Accounting illustration

Does this make sense to you


Faith is transferring your trust from you to God

It is staking everything on the fact that God keeps His promises

Faith


Message of faith
Message of Faith

Faith is valuable because of WHAT you believe, not THAT you believe

It is a non-meritorious act whereby we allow God to do what He has promised to do


Message of faith1
Message of Faith

In order to receive the free gift we must believe God

Acts 16:31, John 1:12

Illustration give a Bible

This act of faith involves three things

Hebrews 11:13

Knowing the truth - an act of the mind

Wanting the truth - an act of the heart

Accepting the truth - an act of the will

Is there any reason you would not want to receive the free gift of eternal life



Message of the invitation
Message of the Invitation for a decision

We receive Christ through an act of the will… asking Him to do what He has promised. John 1:12

We ask God for His free gift through prayer

Would you like to pray now to receive Christ?
