  8. II. The Gospel • The Gospel, by the Word and by the Spirit • Word without Spirit – dry up • Spirit without Word – blow up • Word and Spirit – grow up

  9. Romans 1 • Paul – sent to preach Good News • Jesus – shown to be God’s son when raised from the dead by the power of the Spirit • Privilege to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them – great sense of obligation

  10. So… eager to come to you to preach the Good News • Not ashamed of this Good News – it is the power of God at work saving everyone who believes • This Good News tells us how to be right in God’s sight • Accomplished from start to finish by faith • Ephesians 2:8 – by grace through faith

  13. The Word - 2 Timothy 3:16 - 1716All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.  17God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.

  14. 2 Corinthians 3:2-6 • Your lives are a letter - epistole��ep-is-tol-ay‘ a writtenmessage:—”epistle”, letter. • Written with the Spirit of God on human hearts • The law kills, but the Spirit gives life

  15. Romans 2:29 – one whose heart is right with God • Not by obeying the letter of the law • A changed heart produced by God’s Spirit • Seeks praise from God, not people

  16. IV. Conclusion • Embrace Tension – understand conflict • Let the Word and the Spirit work together • Understand the Gospel – the power of God to make people right with himself • Be unashamed of the gospel • Changing your life • Praise from God, not men
