Sermons about Propitiation
Primary claim: Those who know God walk in the light of obedience to him.
First an update of the recent missions trip to Mexico; then a brief sermon: Mercy is not getting what one deserves (e.g. a guilty party deserves punishment); grace is getting what one doesn't deserve (e.g. another pays the fine for the guilty party).
The key to holding fast and drawing near when we are tempted to give up and draw back is to possess a clear understanding of Jesus as our great high priest. In Hebrews 4:14-16, the author gives us a clear picture of Jesus and His high priesthood. Specifically, he gives us three reasons why Jesus is our great high priest who is able to help us hold fast to our confession and to draw near to Him with confidence. We will come to see how these three reasons offer hope and help for us in our present difficulties, which fight against our perseverance and kill our confidence in the Son of God.
1. The Universal and Fundamental Problem of the Human Race (vs9-20) ● All of humanity is under sin and deserves God’s wrath. ● We are all held accountable to God and cannot save ourselves. 2. The Saving-Righteousness of God has been Made Known (vs21-26) ● The long dark night is over: and the new age in Christ has dawned (adapted from John Stott). ● God’s gift for all who believe: we are justified by God’s grace through faith alone in Christ alone. ● God’s justice and God’s love are reconciled on the cross: Do you have faith in Jesus? 3. The Life-transforming Power of Justification by Faith in Jesus Christ (vs27-31) ● God will judge the proud in heart who boast in themselves: so live by faith in Jesus and we will not be put to shame. ● God is one and the ground is level at the cross: so love one another and live in unity for God’s glory. ● God empowers His people for godly witness to the nations: so be obedient from the heart through the spirit’s power.
We are looking at words in Scripture (that in English end in 'ation') that the people of God are expected to understand.

God's covenant people in antiquity celebrated one of the most important and treasured festivals yearly to commemorate their liberation from Egyptian bondage, namely the Feast of Passover/Unleavened Bread. The lessons we glean from the Passover are theologically very significant for the Christian today. This sermon will explore this feast still celebrated by Jews today and its implications for Christians today.
