A STONE OF STUMBLING

“Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offence, and whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed” (Rom.9:33)

the sovereignty of god
The Sovereignty Of God
  • He has the right to cast off the Jewish nation, as He had the right to adopt them.
  • But He does not act unreasonably – v. 32
  • They sought Him NOT by faith.
  • So much about Jesus and God’s plan for salvation confuse us.
  • Faith? Baptism? Why did He do it that way?
what is offensive about jesus
What Is Offensive About Jesus?
  • His appearance – He was “ordinary”.
  • Isa. 53:2
  • Came from “nowhere”. Isa. 9:1ff. (Matt. 4:12-16); John 1:46?
  • Messiah should look like “this”. He should be “thus”.
  • God looks on the heart. Jesus like David.
he established the wrong kind of kingdom
He Established the Wrong Kind of Kingdom
  • Luke 17:20 – Within us? No, it must be of this world.
  • John 18:36.
  • We seek vindication and exaltation, not service.
  • “I don’t want to be part of that kingdom.”
he criticized the wrong people
He Criticized The Wrong People
  • The righteous (self).
  • Matt. 23
  • They ignored justice (that which is “right”), mercy and faithfulness.
  • All that God stood for, they were against.
and he forgave the wrong people
And, He Forgave The Wrong People
  • Luke 5:27ff – publicans and sinners.
  • John 8:1ff – an adulterous woman.
  • He touched the dirty, including lepers.
  • Were the children clean when they sat on His knee?
  • “Of such is the kingdom of God.”
  • A stone of stumbling and a rock of offence.
but to the believing
But To The Believing…!
  • What a glorious savior!
  • “Shall not be ashamed”
  • Of Him as an object of faith.
  • Of any of His teachings.
  • Of any of His true disciples.
  • We confess Him willingly and continually.
  • Would YOU?
