Title: The Gospel


1
The Gospel
  • Bridge Illustration

2
Gospel Power of God
  • Romans 116
  • 16For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is
    the power of God for salvation to everyone who
    believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
  • The Gospel is equal to the Power of God, and that
    power can save you. So in order to be saved you
    need the Power of God, which is the Gospel.

3
Genuine Saving Faith
  • Romans 1017
  • 17So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the
    word of Christ

4
Genuine Saving Faith
  • Faith is built upon the Word of Christ which is
    the Gospel. In order to be saved you need to know
    the Gospel.

God is Creator
  • This is where the Gospel begins.
  • Genesis 11
  • 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the
    earth.
  • God created Man
  • God created YOU.

GOD

Creature
  • How should a creature respond to his Creator?
  • Obey, Worship, Honor, Give Thanks.
  • This was the God ordained relationship that man
    was supposed to have with God.

8
The Fall of Man
  • Genesis 3
  • Most people are familiar with this story. Adam
    and Eve eat from the Tree of Knowledge when they
    were told not to by God.
  • Man disobeys God
  • Man doesnt want to listen or serve God but
    rather serve himself. Man tries to flips the
    relationship and put himself above God.

  • In trying to flip the relationship, man doesnt
    want to listen or obey God but instead do as he
    pleases. In doing so man breaks his relationship
    with God.

  • What is it called when you go against your
    authority? (Hint it starts with a R and
    teenagers are often called this)
  • Rebellion

12
GOD
  • So man has rebelled against God.
  • Rebellion is the essence of sin.
  • And things like murder, lying, stealing, and
    cheating are fruits of sin

    still have rebellion?

    issue, an offense against someone else.

Wages of Sin
  • Lets read more about sin.
  • Romans 623
  • 23For the wages of sin is death, but the free
    gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our
    Lord.
  • What is a wage?

16
Wages of Sin
  • Say I worked for you for ten hours. You said you
    would pay me ten dollars an hour, so after ten
    hours I would receive my wage of one hundred
    dollars.
  • A wage is a payment.

17
GOD
Man
  • So Romans 623 says that the payment of sin is
    death.
  • Notice that sin is singular.
  • ONE sin results in death.

Gen 11

Death

18
Death
  • The first time you sinned, you should have been
    struck down dead. The fact you are still alive
    shows that God is a merciful and saving God by
    nature.
  • So what can equal death? Like is there anything
    you can pay God in exchange for death? ( think
    about it for a little then click )
  • How much was the computer your using? 1000?
  • Say I paid you 2000 for it, I can pay for it
    right?
  • But this type of payment is not the case with
    death.
  • The only thing that equals death is another
    death.
  • Romans 623 clearly says that any one sin equals
    death.

  • People are always trying to bridge this gap
    between themselves and God. Whether it be by

  • But these things will never bridge the gap, Rom
    623 clearly says someone has to die

Hopeless
  • So here are some questions, ( give yourself time
    after you click )
  • Do you want to go to heaven?
  • Probably yes right?
  • Now do you deserve to go to heaven?
  • No you dont. No one deserves to go to heaven.
    There is no one who is righteous and no one who
    does not sin.
  • Romans 310-12
  • 10as it is written,?         "THERE IS NONE
    RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE ?    11THERE IS NONE WHO
    UNDERSTANDS,?         THERE IS NONE WHO SEEKS FOR
    GOD ?    12ALL HAVE TURNED ASIDE, TOGETHER THEY
    HAVE BECOME USELESS?         THERE IS NONE WHO
    DOES GOOD,?         THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE."

23
Hopeless
  • Romans 323
  • 23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory
    of God,
  • 2 Chronicles 636
  • 36"When they sin against You (for there is no man
    who does not sin) and You are angry with them and
    deliver them to an enemy, so that they take them
    away captive to a land far off or near,

24
Hopeless
  • So this leaves man in a completely hopeless
    situation. Man realizes that he is an unrighteous
    sinner, completely displeasing to God, and that
    he can offer nothing to please his Lord. All his
    attempts to bridge this gaps are futile and
    useless, because he has sinned and someone needs
    to pay the penalty of death for that sin.
  • YOU have sinned, YOU are hopeless, and YOU need a
    savior.

25
Christ Pays the Wage
  • Romans 58
  • 8But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in
    that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for
    us
  • We couldnt pay the payment, BUT Christ died for
    us.

26
  • So Jesus Christ came to earth. He was 100 God
    and 100 Man.
  • He lived the perfect sinless life, which
    ultimately led to His sacrifice on the cross to
    pay for our sins.

Christ Pays the Wage
  • Romans 57
  • 7For one will hardly die for a righteous man
    though perhaps for the good man someone would
    dare even to die.
  • Would you even die for a righteous person?
  • Christ died for you, an unrighteous sinner.
  • You have been paid for, you have been bought by
    Christ. Jesus died for you.

28
  • Lets say for a moment God never sent Jesus to
    die for our sins. Would He still be a just God?
  • The answer is yes. God didnt have to send Jesus
    to die for us. He did it out of His love and
    mercy.

  • So now you know that Jesus has died for you. Is
    this picture complete now? Is there anything we
    need to resolve?
  • No, the picture is not finished, there is still
    rebellion against God.
  • YOU are still in rebellion against God.

  • So what is it called when you resolve a
    conflict? (Hint it begins with an R also)
  • Take for example that you are in a fight with
    your mother, the relationship has been broken,
    but then you apologize and say sorry and the
    relationship has been fixed, your relationship
    with your mother has been………
  • Reconciled

32
Reconciliation
  • 2 Corinthians 518-20
  • 18Now all these things are from God, who
    reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave
    us the ministry of reconciliation, 19namely, that
    God was in Christ reconciling the world to
    Himself, not counting their trespasses against
    them, and He has committed to us the word of
    reconciliation. 20Therefore, we are ambassadors
    for Christ, as though God were making an appeal
    through us we beg you on behalf of Christ, be
    reconciled to God.

Reconciliation
  • Look back at Romans 58
  • 8But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in
    that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for
    us
  • God demonstrates His own love in order to
    reconcile us back to Him.
  • God has done all the work of salvation for us. He
    has initiated it, and has given us the means to
    restore the right relationship that He intended.
    The lowly slaved on the bottom worshipping our
    God, our Creator, our Lord, and our Savior.

35
Reconciliation
  • God did it to reconcile you to Him. Just escaping
    Hell isnt the issue. Its about being restored,
    coming back to God your father.
  • Do you want to come back to your God?
  • To Obey, Honor, Worship, and Give Thanks?
  • So there is a way to be reconciled back to our
    Lord, but the question is how do we do it?

36
Jesus Christ the Only Way
  • John 146
  •  6Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the
    truth, and the life no one comes to the Father
    but through Me.
  • Jesus makes it clear here, the only way to become
    reconciled back to our father and saved is
    through Him.
  • Romans 511
  • 11And not only this, but we also exult in God
    through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we
    have now received the reconciliation.
  • We have the message of reconciliation because of
    Jesus Christ.

37
What are we supposed to do?
  • So what does God call of us to do in order to
    become reconciled back to Him?

Jesus is Lord
  • Romans 109
  • 9that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as
    Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised
    Him from the dead, you will be saved
  • The keywords here are confess and Lord.
  • What is a Lord? (Think then click)
  • a person who has complete authority, control, and
    power over others a master or ruler.
  • You have to confess Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

40
Jesus is Lord
  • In confessing Him as Lord you are calling Him
    your Master, and you His slave. People often say
    You need to have a personal relationship with
    Christ. The relationship with Christ is that of
    a Master and slave. A slave has no rights of his
    own, his life is completely in the hands of his
    Master. A slave is completely submissive to his
    Master, and desires to obey Him and please Him.
  • Ephesians 66
  • 6not by way of eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but
    as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from
    the heart.

Deny Yourself
  • Luke 923
  • 23And He was saying to them all, "If anyone
    wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself,
    and take up his cross daily and follow Me.
  • There are no if, than, or buts in this verse.
    You MUST deny yourself if you want to follow
    Christ.
  • What is denying yourself?

43
Deny Yourself
  • Self-Denial is sacrificing everything you want,
    in favor of everything Christ wants. Self-Denial
    in the ultimate sense is hating yourself. You
    have to hate yourself, because you recognize you
    are a wretched sinner, and offer nothing to the
    Lord. Denying yourself is giving up everything in
    order to follow Christ. In taking up your cross
    daily, your sacrificing (giving up) everything
    you desire every day.

Believe IN Jesus Christ
  • John 316
  • 16"For God so loved the world, that He gave His
    only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him
    shall not perish, but have eternal life.
  • YOU have to believe IN Jesus Christ for
    everything that He is, your Lord and your Savior.
  • The word in used here in the Greek is more like
    into. Sort of like submerging yourself into
    something. You need to submerge yourself into
    Christ and believe in Him for everything that He
    is, Lord and Savior.

46
Believe IN Jesus Christ
  • You need to believe in Jesus Christ the person,
    not just facts about Him. That He was God in
    human flesh, He lived the perfect sinless life,
    that He sacrificed Himself on the cross for your
    sins, and that on third day He really rose from
    the dead. You cant pick and choose what you want
    about Gods redemptive plan, you need to come to
    Him on His terms and beg Him for forgiveness. It
    isnt enough to just know the facts about Christ,
    even Satan and his demons believe in the true
    God, but they dont love and obey Him. Their
    faith is not genuine, true saving faith always
    responds in obedience. Jesus is Lord and when you
    obey Him your are acknowledging that and
    submitting to His authority. That doesnt mean
    your obedience will be perfect but that is your
    goal.

Salvation
  • The Gospel is the Power of God for salvation. Our
    sinful rebellion is what is separating us from
    God, and the only way to be reconciled back to
    our Father is through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the
    only one who can forgive and transform us, and
    deliver us from the power, bondage, and penalty
    of sin. Christ death pained the penalty/payment
    of sin for us. His death satisfied the demand of
    Gods justice, which enables Him to forgive and
    save those who put their faith in Him. Salvation
    occurs after genuine conviction of sin, genuine
    repentance, which will lead to desperation and
    the need of a Savior. Then if you confess Jesus
    as Lord and Savior, deny yourself, and believe in
    Him for everything that He is, God promises to
    save.

56
GOD
Man
GOD
Man
  • After going through the Gospel, here is another
    question. Which is your relationship with
    God? God above man? Or Man above God? Think about
    it hard.

57
GOD

GOD
Man
  • There is a difference between recognizing that
    God is above you, and living under His Lordship.
    Are you living under Christs Lordship? Is He
    Master over your life? Or are you trying to
    control your own life?

58
GOD

GOD

  • If your unsure or feel in between consider this.
  • Matthew 1230
  • 30"He who is not with Me is against Me and he
    who does not gather with Me scatters.

59
Man
GOD
  • If your relationship with God is a broken Man
    above God relationship, and you are living in
    active rebellion against Him, what do you want to
    do about your relationship with Him? Do you want
    to be reconciled back to your Lord and submit to
    Him?

60
GOD
Man
  • If so you need to get on your knees and pray to
    God. Beg the Lord to forgive you of your sins
    against Him and your sinful rebellion. Beg Him to
    graciously save you. Confess Jesus Christ as your
    Lord and Savior, deny yourself, believe IN Him,
    and you will be saved.

61
Man
GOD
  • If your unsure, or if you want to take some time
    to think about it, do just that. Take some time
    and think about it. Go through this illustration
    again if you have to. Jesus never wanted people
    to rush into a false confession of faith. He
    always wanted people to count the cost.

62
  • Luke 1426-35
  • 26"If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his
    own father and mother and wife and children and
    brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life,
    he cannot be My disciple. 27"Whoever does not
    carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be
    My disciple. 28"For which one of you, when he
    wants to build a tower, does not first sit down
    and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to
    complete it? 29"Otherwise, when he has laid a
    foundation and is not able to finish, all who
    observe it begin to ridicule him, 30saying, 'This
    man began to build and was not able to
    finish.' 31"Or what king, when he sets out to
    meet another king in battle, will not first sit
    down and consider whether he is strong enough
    with ten thousand men to encounter the one coming
    against him with twenty thousand? 32"Or else,
    while the other is still far away, he sends a
    delegation and asks for terms of peace. 33"So
    then, none of you can be My disciple who does not
    give up all his own possessions. 34"Therefore,
    salt is good but if even salt has become
    tasteless, with what will it be seasoned? 35"It
    is useless either for the soil or for the manure
    pile it is thrown out. He who has ears to hear,
    let him hear."
