EASTER REFLECTION

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Romans 5:8-11

Jesus died on the cross for you. He wore a crown of thorns and was nailed to a tree because He loves you...and He wants to have a personal relationship with you today.

PREACHER'S PEN

WITH ANDREW KELLY

The ultimate test of our faith

We can be prone to measure our commitment to the Lord in a number of ways that are not necessarily true expressions of our faith. It is possible to gain great knowledge of God’s word without really knowing Him. We can spend our lives doing good works without ever truly serving God. We could give all our possessions to the poor without ever actually giving our lives to our Lord.

The Apostle John makes it clear that the ultimate test of our faith is not our knowledge, our works, or our generosity. The ultimate evidence of our faith is love from obedience. God’s unchanging, sacrificial, life giving love revealed in Jesus Christ, displayed in the lives of his redeemed people.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. [1 John 4:7-11]

Bulletin l 18th August

The Essentials of the Gospel

Jeff Spencer

1. God has revealed Himself first in creation, and also in the gospel.

[Romans 1:16-20]

2. Because all mankind rejected their Creator, and replaced Him with creation instead, God gave man up to his deluding sinful choices.

[Romans 1:21-32; 3:9-10,23]

3. Man is condemned for rejecting the truth, that God intends to lead him repentance.

[Romans 1:18; 2:4-6; 6:23]

4. In love Christ died for us substitutionally, bearing our judgment to make us right with God

[Romans 3:21-26; 5:8-9; 8:1, 33-34]

5. Salvation and justification is not by works but by faith in Jesus Christ.

[Romans 3:20-28; 4:3-5, 23-25; 5:1]

6. Eternal life is through our union with Christ and our life in Him, in the same way death and sin came through our natural life in Adam.

[Romans 5:10, 12, 15-21]

7. Sin’s power and the condemnation of the law are broken through our sharing in Christ’s death

[Romans 6:3; 7:4, 6]

8. In Christ we are also raised to new life with the power to live right.

[Romans 6:4-6, 8, 22; 8:2-4]

9. This salvation is promised to anyone who in realisation of the bankruptcy of their own works, calls out in believing faith to the Lord Jesus as Lord.

[Romans 9:30-33; 10:9-13; 12:1-2]
