Sermons on Salvation
You can optionally write a description for the topic here.
Colossians 2:13-15. What does being filled in Christ include? Life, forgiveness, removal of the record of debt, victory over spiritual rulers and authorities who oppose Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:18-25 Is the cross silly to you? Or is the cross something beautiful?
Galatians 4:1-11. Now that we are heirs, we are no longer slaves. What does this mean? How do we arrive at this point where we are now in God’s family? How did we receive the Spirit?
Galatians 3:6-9. Paul moves on in his defense of justification by faith alone to an example from the scriptures, the ultimate example of Abraham himself. The Jews believed that in order to be a child of God, one must first become a child of Abraham, and that required circumcision. Paul shows this to be in error and a wrong understanding of scripture by examining Abraham’s life.
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!
Galatians 1:10-15 Paul addresses the challenge false teachers have presented to his authority to preach the gospel by laying out his biography. Paul is a servant of Christ, as it is Christ Himself who revealed the gospel to Paul.
Isaiah 6:1-8. Man’s tendency is to evaluate oneself by comparison with people around us that we think are far worse than we. When we come into contact with a holy God, that reasoning no longer stands, and as we see God for who He is, we also rightly see ourselves for who we are. God is holy, holy, holy, and we are utterly sinful.
Galatians 4:4-5. The Christian message is often rejected as fairy-tale by people who are ignorant to the fact that our faith rests not on the imagination of men like all other earthly religions, Christianity rests on historical fact. Christ’s birth, His life, His death, and His resurrection are all events based in history, and that history supports the truth the Bible presents.
