Simple Gospel, Simply Grace – Part 6

What does repentance mean? The grace of God moves our hearts and minds from what we once thought was life, meaning, and purpose to the person and work of Jesus Christ. That’s the true meaning of repentance – moving from unbelief to belief.

Never Separated

When we’re talking about law and grace, it really gets down to the covenants. The Old Covenant established through Moses and the New Covenant that was established through Jesus Christ. Recall David who pleaded with God, “Don’t take your spirit from me.” contrasted with Jesus’ plea from the cross, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” * Gus is struggling with sharing the Gospel with his family. * Will children be raptured who are under the age of accountability?
* Jean asks about the presentation of salvation. And how can people know they are saved if the message isn’t correct?

The Ministry of the Spirit

2 Corinthians 3 lays out the contrast between law and grace. Let’s talk about why it’s important to draw a contrast between law and grace. Paul states God “made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
* How do you continue to be a good dad when your daughters live in a different state?
* How long is a generation? Do I have the time to live my life the way God wants me to?

The Contrast of Grace and Law

Everything about this life is grace from start to finish. But often we have to seen grace in contrast to something else. That contrast is typically the law. “For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” John 1:17 The ministry of Jesus Christ is a ministry life. “What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin.” Romans 7:7
* I know the truth about my new identity. But how can I grow in grace practically in my daily life and issues? Is it Just resting in His truth?
* If we Gentile Christians were never under the Law, what do you do with Romans 3:19?

Made Alive in Christ

We come into this world, in Adam, dead spiritually. And we’re going to continue on that path unless God enters in and rescues us from that path by his grace through Jesus Christ. He gives grace to those who’ve been humbled and have come to the truth. Romans 3:19-20 * Ron asks about membership requirements for being part of a local church.
* Amy asks about the “Mark of the Beast”. What is it? And is it possible for Christian’s to take it?
* How do we respond to the many Christians who say they have been a “good” person and think that all of that merits eternity with God? Ephesians 2:1-10

Simple Gospel, Simply Grace – Part 5

Often Christians think of coming to Christ only for forgiveness. We often limit salvation to forgiveness of sins. But the primary purpose of salvation is to have life … and have life abundantly. Between receiving forgiveness and receiving a golden ticket for entry to Heaven, there is a wealth of joy, peace, contentment, and goodness to be had in our daily life. How do we experience that life? By grace, through faith. To be saved by grace is God moving us from spiritual death to spiritual life. God makes us alive together with Christ. * Simple Gospel, Simply Grace – https://simplegospelsimplygrace.com

Power of Christ in Everything

God’s goal isn’t to have us “well adjusted”. He wants us to embrace His grace and depend upon Jesus Christ moment by moment. Jesus will prove time and time again that he is sufficient in all things.
* 2 Chronicles 7:14 speaks to revival. Is it time for revival for our nation today? * ​How does the word “fear” translate to “reverence?”

Grace to Conquer Trials

Our relationship with God is based on grace. There’s no way to have a relationship with God unless he chooses to extend us grace. And he’s done that through the work of Jesus Christ. God initiates this relationship with us.
* If you have time could you help me understand Romans 8:17. I believe in Jesus plus nothing, but this seems to add something to that. * Are you supposed to call any man Reverend?
* Could y’all please explain James 3:1?

A Radical Transformation

“But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:4-7 Not only did we need grace for forgiveness but we need grace for life. It’s simply grace from start to finish. * Why do people fear God?
* You said that Adam and Eve freely ate of all the trees, including the tree of life. This is not so according to Genesis 3:23, 24. * How are we to understand predestination?

Grace and Promise

It’s the 5th anniversary of Simple Gospel, Simply Grace. It’s a book that’s been answering the question: “how is the Christian life supposed to work?” for 5 years. What we’d love to see is for Basic Gospel Nation to get the word out about the grace of God. We are in a time were the grace of God is needed more than ever before. So let’s get the word out.
* Will animals be in Heaven? What about hunting and fishing for sport? Is it wrong?
* How do you know when you’re on the right track with the Lord when everything around you is chaotic? How can I be for sure that I’m in God’s perfect will?
* Clay comments: “We, as a new creation, are a part of His rescue mission of saving the world one heart at a time.”
* What is “the sin” that leads to death in 1 John 5:16? And does verse 17 play into verse 16?
