Our Salvation - A O Man Sinned – The severity of Sin and the consequence of sin. 3 O O O O O O O Chapters into the Bible, and man sinned. Gen 3. 6 Chapters in man is inclined to evil. Gen 6:5-7. Samples of God’s response to Sin. Gen 19, Numb 15, Jos 7, Lev 10, 2 Sam 6. Annihilated for looking back, stoned for picking sticks, consumed for one wrong offering, killed for one wrong touch e.t.c. God takes sin seriously. The scales for sin – what and against whom? (analogy of a slap) Consequences of sin – Col 1:21, John 8:34; Tim 2:26, John 3:20; Eph 4:18, Rom 6:19, Rom 1:28; 2 Cor 4:4, Rom 1:26; 1 Pet 2:11, Rom 1:24; Gen 8:21; Matt 9:12, Rom 3:10-18, Eph2:1-2 – We were dead in Sin! God’s wrath against sin – Ps 5:5-6, John 3:36, Ps 1-50 (14 times) God’s Gracious Initiative – Dead men don’t invite, God invites men. Deut 7:7-8, Jer 1:5, John 15:16 The Divinity of Jesus, His Invitation and sacrifice – Matt 1-4, Matt 4:19. (analogy, in matters of love), Jesus – lamp, high priest, sinlessness, Is 53:5-6. The Cross as an expression of God’s mercy and wrath in their fullest. Research the accuracy of Prophecy about Jesus. Our Salvation - I am not saved primarily because I decided, but because God in Jesus decided. The Concept of Adoption. God Seeks. Eph 1:3-6, Luke 15, 1-7. God initiates, we accept responsibility.
More to Our Salvation - A O Our Salvation is not merely by confessing – O Salvation by accent and repeating a prayer, or Salvation by accepting God’s invite to die to live. The cost of discipleship: Peter, Andrew, James, John, Saheed. Dangerously deceived: Matt 7:21-23. O Cultural vs biblical Christianity. Repeated rededication Gal 2:20. Matt 7:13-14. Matt 10:17-22, Matt 16: 16, 24-25 Matt 24:9, Luke 14: 26-27,33. Belief in context James 2:19 (demons and others believe), John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Rom 10:9 (arguments- Matt 7:21-23). One of the biggest ploys of the Devil in our generation is to allow people to believe they are Christians when they are not – Dangerously deceived. (analogy of a man hit by a truck) Matt 4:17. Jesus’ first word – Repent. John the Baptist Matt 3:2, Acts 2:37-38 first salvation message. Ez 14:6, 1 Thes 1:9-10, (analogy – the wooden idol and the western satisfier) Repentance (our mind, our desires, our wills, our relationships, our reason for living.
More to Our Salvation –A O Our Salvation is not by following certain paths O The critical difference between Followers of Jesus and all other world religions are, 1. 2. 3. 4. O All others have 8 fold paths, 5 pillars, rules and regulations, only Jesus said, follow me! All others have teachers showing the path, Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life. All died, Jesus lives. All others are religions and burdens of rules, Jesus made a call for a personal relationship. Matt 11:2829 Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, makes him timeless and his words relevant through all ages 1 Cor 15. There is one way and judgment for other ways John 5: 22-24, 26-29, Rev 20:11-15. No need for satanic questions – Did God really say? Mark 9:4348, Rev 20:15, Rev 21:8, Rev 14:11, (symbols? For what?). We no longer live in the horror of hell – “hell of time”. Eternal life for believers John 3:16, 11:2526, 14:1-6, Rev 21: 1,4
More to Our Salvation - A O Our Salvation is by Grace only, not works. O Flesh cannot be holy. God gives a new heart and a new spirit. John 3, Ez 36:25-28, Jer 31:33-34, Matt 1:21, John 1:29, Is 1:18, Ps 51:2, 1 Cor 6:11, 1 John 1:9, (marriage analogy – all yours is mine), O Following Jesus requires devotion to his word. John 8:31-32, John 15:7, 1 Cor 2:16, Rom 12:2, Col 3:9-10, 2 Cor 10:5. O Our Salvation is not to simply be saved O Matt 4:19 The mission must be clear from start! He won’t call them O O O O to do it, he will cause them to do it. Matt 28:19-20 Starts with a call, ends with a commandment. We were saved to make disciples. Transformed to transform. Transformation of mind, desires, wills, relationships, purpose for living. If you are a true disciple, you will be supernaturally compelled to make disciples. You must want to, not have to. Believing requires proclaiming – no such thing as privatized Christianity. With the realities of judgment and sin, it is inconceivable not to proclaim. It is arrogant to be silent. Luke 24:47, Rev 5:9. John 15:7. Jesus was promising to give everything needed to to spread your truth from wherever I live to the ends of the earth. Summary of our Story. Discipleship has become our souls supreme desire. Dan 7:14, Matt 28:18,19. Eph 1:20, 21
