Title: Speak For Yourself


1
Speak For Yourself
  • John 921
  • but by what means he now sees we do not know,
    or who opened his eyes we do not know. He is of
    age ask him. He will speak for himself.

2
We Must Speak
  • 2 Corinthians 5
  • 10 For we must all appear before the judgment
    seat of Christ, that each one may receive the
    things done in the body, according to what he has
    done, whether good or bad.
  • Romans 14
  • 11 For it is written As I live, says the LORD,
    Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue
    shall confess to God.
  • 12 So then each of us shall give account of
    himself to God.

3
We Must Speak Before Others
  • Matthew 10
  • 32 Therefore whoever confesses Me before men,
    him I will also confess before My Father who is
    in heaven.
  • Mark 8
  • 38 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in
    this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the
    Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in
    the glory of His Father with the holy angels.
  • Romans 10
  • 10 For with the heart one believes unto
    righteousness, and with the mouth confession is
    made unto salvation.

4
Jesus Gave of Himself for Others
  • Romans 15
  • 3 For even Christ did not please Himself but as
    it is written, The reproaches of those who
    reproached You fell on Me.
  • Galatians 1
  • 4 who gave Himself for our sins, that He might
    deliver us from this present evil age, according
    to the will of our God and Father
  • Galatians 2
  • 20 I have been crucified with Christ it is no
    longer I who live, but Christ lives in me and
    the life which I now live in the flesh I live by
    faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave
    Himself for me.

5
Jesus Gave of Himself for Others
  • Ephesians 5
  • 2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us
    and given Himself for us, an offering and a
    sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
  • Ephesians 5
  • 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ
    also loved the church and gave Himself for her
  • Philippians 2
  • 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He
    humbled Himself and became obedient to the point
    of death, even the death of the cross.

COMPARE
Blind Man
Problem Blindness John 9 1 Now as Jesus passed
by, He saw a man who was blind from birth.
Us
Our Problem Sin Romans 3 23 for all have
sinned and fall short of the glory of God Isaiah
59 1 Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened,
That it cannot save Nor His ear heavy, That it
cannot hear. 2 But your iniquities have
separated you from your God And your sins have
hidden His face from you, So that He will not
hear.
7
Blind Man
COMPARE
Only Christ Could Help Him John 9 32 Since the
world began it has been unheard of that anyone
opened the eyes of one who was born blind.
Us
Only Christ Can Help Us Hebrews 9 22 And
according to the law almost all things are
purified with blood, and without shedding of
blood there is no remission. 14 how much more
shall the blood of Christ, who through the
eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to
God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to
serve the living God?
8
Blind Man
COMPARE
Given Specific Commands John 9 7 And He said to
him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam
Us
We Are Given Specific Commands Luke 13 3
unless you repent you will all likewise
perish. Matthew 10 32 Therefore whoever
confesses Me before men, him I will also confess
before My Father who is in heaven. Mark 16 16
He who believes and is baptized will be saved
but he who does not believe will be condemned.
9
Blind Man
COMPARE
Cure Grace and Faith Expressed by Obedience John
9 7 So he went and washed, and came back
seeing.
Us
Our Cure Grace and Faith Expressed by Obedience
Ephesians 2 8 For by grace you have been saved
through faith, and that not of yourselves it is
the gift of God, Hebrews 5 9 And having been
perfected, He became the author of eternal
salvation to all who obey Him Acts 22 16 And
now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized,
and wash away your sins, calling on the name of
the Lord.
10
Blind Man
COMPARE
No One Could Obey for Him John 9 7 So he went
and washed, and came back seeing.
Us
No One Can Obey for Us Acts 22 16 And now why
are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash
away your sins, calling on the name of the
Lord. Acts 10 47 Can anyone forbid water, that
these should not be baptized who have received
the Holy Spirit just as we have? 48 And he
commanded them to be baptized in the name of the
Lord
11
Blind Man
COMPARE
Was Persecuted for His Faith John 9 34 They
answered and said to him, You were completely
born in sins, and are you teaching us? And they
cast him out.
Us
Will Be Persecuted for Our Faith Acts 14 22
strengthening the souls of the disciples,
exhorting them to continue in the faith, and
saying, We must through many tribulations enter
the kingdom of God. 2 Timothy 3 12 Yes, and
all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will
suffer persecution.
12
Blind Man
COMPARE
Spoke for Himself John 9 21 but by what means
he now sees we do not know, or who opened his
eyes we do not know. He is of age ask him. He
will speak for himself. 25 He answered and said,
Whether He is a sinner or not I do not know. One
thing I know that though I was blind, now I see.
Us
We Must Speak for Ourselves 1 Peter 3 15 But
sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always
be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks
you a reason for the hope that is in you, with
meekness and fear.
13
COMPARE
Us
We Must Speak for Ourselves 2 Corinthians 4 13
And since we have the same spirit of faith,
according to what is written, I believed and
therefore I spoke, we also believe and therefore
speak Philippians 1 14 and most of the
brethren in the Lord, having become confident by
my chains, are much more bold to speak the word
without fear. Titus 2 1 But as for you, speak
the things which are proper for sound doctrine 1
Peter 4 11 If anyone speaks, let him speak as
the oracles of God.

  • Titus 2
  • 1 But as for you, speak the things which are
    proper for sound doctrine
  • 8 sound speech that cannot be condemned, that
    one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having
    nothing evil to say of you.
  • 2 Timothy 1
  • 13 Hold fast the pattern of sound words which
    you have heard from me, in faith and love which
    are in Christ Jesus.

16
Too Polite To Speak Up???
  • Ask About Religion Point Out Errors!
  • Fallacy of Sincerity Alone (Acts 101-2)
  • Danger of Feelings (Acts 231 1 Tim. 115)
  • No Obedience Death (1 Thess. 17-9)
  • Error of Faith Only (Jas. 24)
  • Acting W/O Authority Lawless (Mt. 721-23)
  • Silence DOES NOT Authorize (Heb.714)

17
Confident We Have the Truth!
  • John 20
  • 30 And truly Jesus did many other signs in the
    presence of His disciples, which are not written
    in this book
  • 31 but these are written that you may believe
    that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and
    that believing you may have life in His name.
  • 1 John 5
  • 13 These things I have written to you who
    believe in the name of the Son of God, that you
    may know that you have eternal life, and that you
    may continue to believe in the name of the Son of
    God.
  • Romans 10
  • 17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing
    by the word of God.

18
Be Sure of Your Teaching!
  • Blind man offered no opinions, just facts!
  • 1 Peter 411
  • If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of
    God.
  • 2 Timothy 2
  • 15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to
    God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed,
    rightly dividing the word of truth.
