Amazing Grace: its all about God! its all by His grace! its all for His glory!
God alone is able to save! It is through the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ that God establishes and keeps us. This gospel of salvation was established before the foundations of the world, was promised in the Law and Prophets and is fully revealed through Jesus Christ. It is God’s will that all people know this and are lead to faith in it.
If right now, you had great health, the job you wanted, 3 months worth of money in the bank, happy, healthy, Godly kids, a good relationship with your spouse, and a nice home, would you think, “I’m as at peace as I have ever been”? I’m just wondering because God may grant you some or all of those thing…or none of them. None of those things are the means by which you will have or know peace. You might not have good health. You might not have 3 days worth of money much less 3 months. Kids are not always happy, healthy, or Godly. Spouses fight. Homes sometimes are too small, get damaged, or even get foreclosed upon. But the Gospel, the fact that God has unwavering affection for you because of Jesus Christ, gives peace. The Gospel is big enough if you don’t have money, if you’re not healthy, if you’re kids are a mess or if you’re marriage is a mess. Peace is still possible for those who hope in Christ. How do we know these things? Well, this week, as we get close to wrapping up our study of Romans, we are going to look at these verses that will guarantee those promises: Romans 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
How do doctrine and obedience work hand in hand?
Paul is going to warn against people who teach the Bible falsely while encouraging each and ever believer to pursue the truths of scripture vigorously. There, we hope to orient all our hearts to this truth: “The goal of theological training is not so we can be superstar Christians playing in the starting lineup or getting our face on a Sportscenter highlight. We pursue the scriptures and pursue prayer because that is where we find Jesus. And in the finding of Jesus each and every day, He prepares us for the life of the Kingdom: both its proclamation and its defense.”
Dealing With The Discouragers
As believers we must stick to the essentials of the gospel that have been handed down to us once for all through the authority of the Scriptures. There are many who would distort this clear gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Reject those and their teaching and continue in what you have been taught.
