It’s So Simple

We’re talking about the ripple effects of the Protestant Reformation 500 years later. The same Gospel that Peter, Paul, and James preached reached the heart of Martin Luther. The reality that Martin discovered was there is a problem in the heart of man that only the New Covenant ushered in by Jesus Christ can answer.
* There are so many things going on in our country these days and throughout the world, we want to encourage our listeners to pray and reach out with the love of Christ into the world.
* Ephesians 1:7 “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.” Romans 3:22-24 “… For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus”

Full of Grace and Truth

We’re talking about grace alone this week. That’s one of the things Martin Luther recognized as he read his bible. And grace alone is our only solution to this life. Praised be to God for the grace we have in Jesus Christ. In John 1:14 we read “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”.

Grace is a Gift

Ephesians 2:4-9 “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 … not by works, so that no one can boast.” We can enter into the benefit of someone else’s obedience. Because of Christ’s obedience, God gives us freely all things. We’re made to be alive.

Testify to the Good News of God’s Grace

We’re talking about the grace of God this week. If we’re going to have a relationship with God it can only be by grace. So why don’t we grab hold of that? One answer: pride. God has to do for us what we can’t do for ourselves and that’s what we call grace. Martin Luther had to rediscover that for himself 500 years ago. Paul said it this way: “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me–the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24 * Why did God create the “Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil”?

Equipped for a Life of Faith

2 Timothy 3:16, 17 “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” Timothy is getting ready to take his place as a leader and Paul is telling him that he will suffer for the Gospel. With those trials and tribulations there’s a tendency to give up – to take the easy path. Paul is reminding Timothy that he knows the way of salvation. He’s adequately equipped for a life of faith in Christ. * Brad asks about Ephesians 2:10.
* Stephen asks about the possibility of a peace treaty between Israel and Palestine and its role in revealing the antichrist.

His Word is Truth

One of the tenants of the Protestant Reformation was concerning authority. Who had ultimately authority concerning the Gospel. Jesus answered the importance of the Word of God in our lives as believers when he declared, “the Word of God is truth”. We need to take our stand on the Bible as the one book of truth. Our emotions can be up and down and all over the place, but the Word anchors us to Jesus Christ.
* Jane asks about Romans 9:18 “So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills.”
