Simple Gospel, Simply Grace – Part 39

The purpose for the grace of God is so that we can know God and to connect us to the love of God. The work of Jesus Christ makes us spiritually alive and empowers us to live in this world of darkness as lights shining brightly.

A Greater Law

Romans 7 explains how the resurrection impacts you directly – you died to the law, so that you now serve in the new life of the Spirit. This truth makes all the difference. Craig asks about Genesis 14:17-24, which is often used to support the practice of tithing. Jesus himself said that tithing is a matter of the law. We no longer are under the law and can practice the grace of giving from the heart. The next question is about 1 John 4:20, 4:8, 2:15. Does this mean we can never be annoyed with others?

Prophecy of the Resurrection

The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is what sets Christianity apart. Scott asks about Psalm 22 – is it a prophecy of the death of Christ? David remarks that God guided people in the Old Testament; did he speak to them through scripture as he does under the New Covenant? Beck asks if Jesus ever consumed alcohol and, if so, when and where?

The Resurrection is the Message

The resurrected body of Jesus was immortal – never to face death again. And that’s what the Apostles were teaching. The resurrection in the heart and soul of Christianity. “And as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees came upon them, 2 greatly annoyed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.” Acts 4:1-4 * How do I find the strength to answer God’s call?
* When Jesus raised someone from the dead, where was their spirit, in Paradise?
* A friend has brought messages from my recently deceased father-in-law. I’m concerned for my husband regarding future “messages”.
* “I say to you, among those born of women, there is no one greater than John; yet he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.” Luke 7:28 NASB Are not all born of women? It stands to reason that the “yet he” would also have been born of a woman as well.

Resurrection is the Message

There has been a life-change because of the resurrection. And the message of the resurrection is our message to the world. When Jesus started to tell the disciples this message, they didn’t understand. Before the foundation of the world God had this plan that included Jesus. It was all a part of God’s plan. What was the first message that Peter gave? It was the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Acts 2:14-40 * Raquel asks for clarification concerning chanting. Is it biblical? * How does one gracefully set boundaries with in-laws?

Simple Gospel, Simply Grace – Part 38

Throughout the New Testament we see statements about eternal life. This is the goal and the prize. This is what God wants for us. There is a definition of eternal life in John 17:3 – “And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” As we get to know God, we experience His gift of eternal life. So how does this work itself out? 1 John 2:12,14

O Death, Where is Your Sting?

Be sure to check our our latest video:
* “Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. … ” 1 Corinthians 15:51-55 We have hope for the future because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. * How does one get the joy of Christ into your life?
* Tracy comments about “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-10 * What does Peter mean by the kingdom in 1 Peter?
* A caller asks about John 1:12 “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God”. Can a person be saved apart from saying a prayer of salvation?

Everything We Need

The resurrection isn’t just some facts to believe. It impacts us today in the here and now. “His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, … through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.” 2 Peter 1:3-4
* Is it wrong to pray every night that the Lord would take me home to be with Him? I mean what greater thing is there than to be face to face with the Lord Jesus? * In what ways are teachers judged more strictly?
* What is your take on “grace” teachers gravitating toward false doctrine – such as Trinitarianism and Universalism?

A New Way to Live

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.” Romans 8:14 Now that we have died in Christ and have been raised we have a new way of life. How does the Spirit of God lead us? He gives us the assurance that we are children of God. “But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” Galatians 5:18 * Kelvin asks about Acts 18:24-26. What does “more accurately” really mean?
* I did a lot of things I knew were wrong. Is it too late for me to be forgiven? Is God’s grace enough for me? * Who are the rulers and authorities mentioned in Ephesians 3:10? * If Ananias and Sapphira were under grace, why were they killed for lying?

Never Alone

God promised to give the Holy Spirit to anyone who received Jesus Christ. The day that you trusted Jesus something supernatural happened. You crossed over from death to life and the Spirit of God came to indwell you. What a wonderful gift you have from the Father. * Why don’t we celebrate Passover on Friday and Saturday instead of Sunday?
* Can we really forgive as Jesus forgave? How would you explain that? – A question from Simple Gospel, Simply Grace —
* Was the “Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil” a test of obedience? It seems it was done to tempt Adam, but I was taught temptation comes from the devil. * Is it OK to worship God from home instead of going to a church?
