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]

Bulletin l 16th February

PREACHER'S PEN

As we press into our study of John's first epistle he tells us that the foundation of his message is that God is Light and that in Him there is no darkness at all.

It seems obvious that the pure righteousness of God's holy character has some very powerful implications for us, if we want to live in fellowship with Him. The result is an unavoidable conflict between the sin that inevitably rises up within us to challenge the life that is birthed within us as the children of God in Christ.

If we are to enjoy a deep abiding sense of assurance of our salvation in Christ, if we are to maintain integrity in our profession, and if we are to fully be the expression of God's love to a world that is lost and fallen, then the reign of sin in our hearts must be broken and banished.

This is what it means to walk in the light. John's aim is to help us find that plane of living. Let's be open to hiw God wants to do that in each of us.

Bulletin l 24th November

PREACHER'S PEN - TRUE WORTH

MURRAY LYDEAMORE

Occasionally Leila and I watch Antiques Roadshow on TV – and no, it is not an old age reality show!!

Owners of a wide range of very old, and often well worn, items bring them to be examined and valued by experts. We are astounded with the valuation placed upon these once treasured but now , in many cases, very second hand goods.

Works of art by world renowned painters of a former era, that once were acclaimed as they hung in galleries, are presented faded and often damaged. To the onlookers there is nothing about the painting that captures their attention, but, under the gaze of the expert its history is disclosed and value declared. The expert knows that, in the hands of the right person, with careful attention this painting could be restored to its former glory.

As we, over recent Sundays have viewed our true worth , we were reminded from Scripture that Adam and Eve were the pinnacle of God’s creative genius. “So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them..” Gen 1:27

Our own experience tells us that that original, perfect creation has been marred and flawed. Despite self effort, and New Year resolutions, the damage on lives lived independently of God is so evident. We needed someone to take us from that damaged state and restore us to our original design and purpose. “ A new creation…” 2 Cor5:17 is how the Bible describes it.

A loving God and His Son Jesus are the creative geniuses with all who commit themselves to His skilled hands. Paul describes true followers of Jesus in this way- “For we are God’s masterpiece..” Ephesians 2:10

__________

PRAYER MORNING

7TH DECEMBER // 9:00 - 10:30AM

We will be meeting this Saturday morning as a church to pray for our church, church ministries, leadership, HCC, and the community around us.

Your prayer and our prayers together are absolutely vital to the life and ministry of our church

There will be a time of coffee & fellowship after the prayer time
