A DEEPER LOOK AT THE GOSPEL
The character of God
Biblical truth: God is the just and gracious Creator of all things.
Biblical response: Realize that we belong to Him, are accountable to Him, and are created to glorify Him.
Romans 1:18-20, 2:1-16, 3:22-24; Isaiah 43:6-7
The sinfulness of man
Biblical truth: We are each created by God, but we are all corrupted by sin.
Biblical response: Admit areas of rebellion, be honest with God about sin, and turn from it.
Romans 1:21-25, 3:9-20, 3:23, 6:23
The sufficiency of Christ
Biblical truth: Jesus Christ alone is able to remove our sin and reconcile us to God through His death. He alone satisfies the wrath of God for our sins.
Biblical response: Recognize that we are helpless to be reconciled with God apart from Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:21-26, 4:25, 5:6-10, 5:18, 8:1-4
The necessity of faith
Biblical truth: We are reconciled to God only through faith in Jesus. There is nothing we can do to become right with God.
Biblical response: Faith that leads to salvation involves turning from sin and self-sufficiency. We turn to Jesus and trust in Him as Lord, confess Him as Lord and Savior.
Romans 1:17, 3:20-31, 4:22-25, 6:11-14, 8:10-11, 10:9-13
The urgency of eternity
Biblical truth: Our eternal destiny is dependent on our response to Jesus.
Biblical response: Cry out to God to save you of your sins, put your faith in Jesus Christ and confess Him as Savior and Lord.
