Grace is the Gospel Introduction introduction

Acts 2:42 • And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. (ESV) • What is the apostles' teaching?

Is it practical application? • Is the teaching hip and cool, ready for Oprah and The View? • Is it relevant to the culture?

Can Man save himself? • Good Works • Right Living • Right Thinking

No, No, No! • Why should anyone listen to us? • What makes our message different? • Is this Good News?

The Bible • 66 Books • 1,500 + years • 40 + authors • 1 Story

Story Ark of the Bible • Creation • Fall • Redemption • Restoration

What is the Gospel?

GOSPEL = GOOD NEWS • Grace Alone • Faith Alone • Christ Alone • Ephesians 2:8-9

Supremacy of Christ • Christ is Supreme over EVERYTHING • CENTRALITY of the CROSS in the Christian Life • I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 (ESV) • Our evangelism must focus on the GOSPEL

Awake My Soul • ‘Cause no one is good enough to save himself Awake my soul tonight to boast nothing else • I trust no other source or name Nowhere else can I hide ‘Cause this grace gives me fear, and this grace draws me near And all that it asks it provides • Still I can boast only Christ

Awake My Soul • ‘Cause no one is good enough to save himself Awake my soul tonight to boast nothing else • I trust no other source or name Nowhere else can I hide ‘Cause this grace gives me fear, and this grace draws me near And all that it asks it provides • Still I can boast only Christ

Grace is the Gospel Creation

Why start with creation? • Luke 24:26-27 • Hebrews 1:1-2

True or False • “Too err is human” – Shakespeare

Triune God is Author of Creation • John 1:1-5 • Colossians 1:15-16 • Genesis 1

Creation is Good • Genesis 1:31 • 1 Chronicles 16:31-34

Indescribable • From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea Creation's revealing Your majesty From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring Every creature unique in the song that it sings All exclaiming • Indescribable, uncontainable, You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name. You are amazing God All powerful, untamable, Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim You are amazing God

Created in God’s Image • Genesis 1:26-27 • Moral Perfection (Genesis 1:31, Ecclesiastes 7:29) • Creative Perfection (Hebrews 11:3) • Religious Perfection (Acts 17:28) • We lost perfection in the fall, but not capacity!

Creation is Universal • God created everything and even non- believers are created in the image of God (Genesis 1, Matthew 5:44-45, James 3:9). • No one can say “I never heard”(Romans 1:14-20) • Always dependent upon Creator (Romans 2:14-15)

Meaning of Life • Psalm 8:3-9 • Psalm 16:11 • Psalm 104:24-31

Our Purpose • What is the chief end of man? “To glorify God and enjoy him forever” – Westminster Shorter Catechism

Benefits of Creation • Common ground with non-Christians as a natural part of human existence. Morality. Social Justice. (Genesis 9:6) • Work is a holy, God-honoring activity. (Genesis 1:28, Genesis 2:15)

Benefits continued • Shared world with non-Christians (what we eat, drink, watch, play, work at, create, share). God didn't create Christian music, Christian yellow pages, etc. (Matthew 5:45) • God is in control. (Psalm 147:4) • Creation leaves us without excuse (Psalm 19:1).
