Sermons about Righteousness
This week we continued our Field of Dreams series by looking at the cross and what it says about our standing before God.
Our Enticements & Christ's Sinlessness
Christians celebrate Easter because of what was accomplished by the death and resurrection of Jesus.
SALVATION AND FAITH ● God’s Righteousness in Christ: God has done the work of salvation for us, we cannot do it ourselves (vs1-10) ● The Righteousness based on Faith: To be saved, we must confess Jesus as Lord & believe God raised Him from the dead (vs4-10) ● God’s Salvation offered to All: Everyone who believes in Christ and calls on His name will be saved (vs4, 9-13) FAITH AND THE GOSPEL ● Faith comes through hearing the Gospel: which must be preached and obeyed! (vs14-17) ● God’s Gospel is being preached: because of His faithfulness, mercy and grace (vs18-21)
THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD: amidst His Sovereignty and Our Faith in Jesus (Message #18 * Romans 9:30-33) 03-17-2013
The Righteousness of God: and Our Faith in Jesus Christ ● The Righteous shall Live by Faith: We are sinners who cannot be saved thru works of the law (vs30-32; 1:17) ● God’s Gospel is Offensive to those who are Self-Righteous: because God commands us to humble ourselves by surrendering to Christ’s Lordship and embracing His cross (vs32-33) ● Those who Believe in Jesus Christ will Never be put to Shame: so Live by faith in Jesus Christ, and enjoy the glory of God’s righteousness now and when Jesus returns (v33) The Sovereignty of God: and Our Faith in Jesus Christ ● God’s Election for His own Glory: amidst God’s wrath against our Sin (1:6-7; 1:18ff; 8:28-29; 9:6ff; 11:28-36; Eph 1:4-5; Rev 18:1ff; 20:11ff) ● God’s Love thru His Son for Sinners: and our Rejection of God’s Gospel (5:6-8; 9:30ff; 10:21; Jn 3:16; Mt 13:1-23; Rev 9:20; 14:6; 16:8) ● God’s Merciful-Saving Power: and our Faith in Jesus Christ (1:16; 9:6ff; 10:1ff; 11:25ff; Mt 11:27; Jn 1:1ff; 6:44; Gal 2:20; Rev 12:11) ● God’s Righteousness Revealed in the Gospel: transforming God’s people to be His holy witnesses who share in Christ’s eternal glory (1:5-17; 3:21ff; 8:17ff; 9:30ff; 12:1ff; 15:1ff; 16:25ff; Ezk 36:22ff; 1Pe 2:4ff; Rev 19:7; 21:1ff)
Seek first the Kingdom of God. Unfortunately we do the opposite.
What does "Saved by Grace" mean to the hearts of the saints? Do we know what that grace is? On the surface, the Grace of God means that He forgives sinners. Grace is the favor of God thrust upon us. But we have to accept it in order to receive it in its full power. Because some rather live in darkness then in the light, many refuse to accept this free gift.
How do we live a great life? How do we live a life that makes a God-glorifying difference for all eternity? In this message, Pastor Jeremy explains what Jesus teaches about how Jesus views his life and how we should view ours as well if we want to live 1) A Fruitful Life, 2) A Lasting Life, and 3) An Honorable Life.
