Sermons on Lordship
Colossians 3:1-4. If we are not to buy into the thinking of men, human precepts and traditions as the basis for our sanctification, then where are we to get our thinking from?
Colossians 2:6-7 How did you receive Christ? What was your heart like when you meet Him and He came to be your Lord and savior? Go back to that time, consider where your heart was, and ask yourselves if that is still what your heart looks like.
Galatians 2:20-21. Paul explains how it is that a man is justified by faith. How does it work. I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me!. What a monumental statement. This truth kills the no-lordship gospel, it kills the Arminian gospel. It is personal, it is for a particular people that Christ gave Himself. It is Jesus Himself who dwells in us, as self is dead to the law.…
Galatians 1:15-24 Paul tells of his own conversion and doesn’t even mention faith. As He presents his salvation it is of Him who set Paul apart from before even his birth, who called by grace, who was pleased to reveal His Son, the Lord Jesus, to Paul, or rather, in Paul!
Romans 8:1-8. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Salvation has definite results in the life of a believer.
1 Peter 2:1-12 What is the result of faith in Christ? Does it have implications for how we live and witness? Of course, and Peter spells out some of these in the second chapter of his first epistle.
Exodus 3:1-4:17 Why don’t Christians evangelize as we ought? Are there common excuses we use to excuse ourselves from obedience to our Lord in this area?
Acts 21:40-22:22 The apostle Paul, witnesses to a crowd seeking to kill him, and he shares his testimony.
Luke 20:41:44 Now that Jesus has shut down the questions of the Sadducees and the Pharisees, Jesus has a question of His own for these. If the promised Messiah is the Son of David, then how can David call this Messiah his Lord? Jesus points to the book of Psalms as the authoritative word of God from which this question comes.
Luke 18:18-30 A ruler of the synagogue came to Jesus with an all important question. What must I do to inherit eternal life. In answering the question Jesus brings the man to the law. In the answer we see that if it at all rests on “our work” it only requires perfect law keeping and perfect submission to Jesus lordship. Those who oppose Lordship salvation should give a listen, because they might be surprised what Lordship salvation actually believes.
