Living a Sunday Life in a Friday World – Lesson 40

The wonderful S. M. Lockridge delivered the powerful and moving sermon titled, “It’s Friday, but Sunday’s Coming.” It’s a sermon that fills that darkest day with light and hope. Sunday is here. Jesus walked out of that tomb and he lives today. Have you come to know this story? Have you found what you are looking for in the person of Jesus Christ? If so, the resurrection story has become your story. Sunday is here for you. But not for the world. It’s still Friday for this world of darkness. This raises an important question: How do you live a Sunday life in a Friday world? Let’s find out… (Chapter 13, page 93)

The Word Was God

How do we find a firm foundation? How do we keep our feet on solid ground? John starts his Gospel account, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. … The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1, 2, 14 * Patrick calls to say thanks for bringing the Gospel to the airwaves.
* Jordan calls about Paul’s call and the need to donate to keep programs like Basic Gospel on the air. * Tim asks about Hebrews 8:12 concerning unrighteousness and sin.

It is By Grace You Have Been Saved

Bob shares the rest of Paul’s story – our last caller from yesterday. Paul prayed to receive Christ. Paul crossed over from death to life. In John 5:24 we read: “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” And Ephesians 2:4-5 Paul writes: “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved.”
* Is it possible that Jesus could have visited other people and places after the Bible? * Is our story the best tool for discipleship and evangelism?

Free to Enjoy a Relationship with God

Jesus’ blood was sufficient to take away every sin. When we come to Christ we are made alive and we receive forgiveness of sins. We stand before God as forgiven people. Colossians 1:19, 20 “For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” * Marc is troubled by Jesus’ words: “depart from me I never knew you.”

The Deepest Need

Jesus Christ is the chief cornerstone. He is our life. Why did we need life? We were spiritually dead. The life of God departed Adam on the day he sinned. We read that the Gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Paul writes: “As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins…” Ephesians 2:1
* Vernon asks about “grieving the Holy Spirit”. Is it a matter of falling in and out of favor with Jesus?

Don’t Look Back – Lesson 39

One of the lessons of life is that we can’t go back. The only option is to move forward. The same is true for the Christian life. We can’t go from belief to unbelief. Why would we want to? You died to sin, to unbelief. The old you is gone. You are new in Jesus, equipped to live a life of faith, hope, and love. So what does the scripture say to you? Press on! It takes courage, but experiencing the life of Jesus is worth everything. This is what he saved you for.

Chief Cornerstone

“Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.” Ephesians 2:19, 20 Our foundation is built on the cornerstone of Jesus Christ and on the teaching of the apostles and prophets. * Why, if we’ve been given the mind of Christ, do we still make mistakes? * Chris wants to know the importance of participating in God’s will.
