Transcript of Gospel

1) He has made us for
Himself
.
Gospel
"The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want."
Psalm 23:1
"He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD."
Deuteronomy 8:3
"Jesus said to them, 'My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.'"
John 4:34
2) In and
through
our first parents,
we believed the great
lie
.
"Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, 'Indeed, has God said, 'You shall not eat from any tree of the garden '?' The woman said to the serpent, 'From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.' The serpent said to the woman, 'You surely will not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.'"
Genesis 3:1-5
"Behold, I have found only this, that God made men upright, but they have sought out many devices."
Ecclesiastes 7:29
"When Adam had lived one hundred and thirty years, he became the father of a son in his own likeness, according to his image...."
Genesis 5:3
"For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One...."
Romans 5:17
3) Man’s independence
always
leads to
death
.
"For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God."
Romans 8:6-8
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."
John 10:10
“God alone knows what is good for human beings and God alone knows what is not good for them. To enjoy the ‘good’ we must
trust
God and
obey
Him. If we disobey, we will have to decide for
ourselves
what is good and what is not good. While to modern men and women such a prospect may seem
desirable
, to the author of Genesis it is the
worst
fate that could have befallen humanity.”
John Sailhamer
4) In our independence He
sought
us.
"Everyone turned to his course,
like a horse charging into the battle."
Jeremiah 8:6
"All of us like sheep have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
but the LORD has caused the iniquity
of us all to fall on Him."
Isaiah 53:6
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us,
in that while we were yet (Gk.
eti
) sinners,
Christ died for us."
Romans 5:8
“…Hope doesn’t lie in our legacy; it doesn’t lie in our longevity; it doesn’t lie in our personality or our career or our politics or our children or, heaven knows, our goodness. Hope lies in
eti
.”
James Van Tholen
5) His love at the
cross
permanently undid the great
lie
.
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep."
John 10:10-11
"Greater love has no one than this,
that one lay down his life for his friends."
John 15:13
"He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?"
Romans 8:32
7) Those who have
trusted
in Him now
live
by His life-giving
grace
through
faith
.
"I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me."
Galatians 2:20
"I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."
John 15:5
"You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus."
2 Timothy 2:1
"For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."
1 Corinthians 1:18
"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him."
Hebrews 11:1-6
8) Those who are saved and
abiding
in Him, live to give
glory
to Him as He has become their greatest
joy
and
treasure
.
"By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and observe His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. "
1 John 5:2-3
"But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."
John 3:21
6) For those who place their
trust
in Christ’s
atoning
death for their
sin
and
reconciliation
to God, there is
forgiveness
and
restoration
.
"For it was fitting for us to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens; who does not need daily, like those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the sins of the people, because this He did once for all when He offered up Himself."
Hebrews 7:26-27
"For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God."
1 Peter 3:18
“It is not the strength of your faith but the Object of your faith that actually saves you.”
– Tim Keller
"The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field."
Matthew 13:44
"I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me."
Romans 15:18 ESV
