2019 – SUNDAY 11 AUGUST
THE COMPLETE WORK
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
YOUR COMPLETE SALVATION
Notice how complete the work of Jesus is, in bringing us eternal life and peace with God.
JUSTIFIED BY HIS BLOOD
The blood of Jesus was poured out as an offering for sin.
His blood on the mercy seat in heaven – is my guarantee that I am justified and declared righteous before God.
SAVED FROM WRATH
The penalty for sin is death. The wrath of God is toward those who commit sin and live in uncleanness.
My salvation delivers me from the wrath that is to come.
I am no longer destined for judgement at the hands of a just and holy God.
RECONCILED THROUGH HIS DEATH
The death of Jesus put to death the enmity between God and His fallen creation. I am now a friend of God. I am His child. Dead to the old man of sin and now alive to God as a new creation. Born again into God’s forever family. Resting in His arms of perfect love.
SAVED BY HIS LIFE
But even greater – is the salvation that comes through the resurrection of Jesus. Salvation is not just forgiveness for sin – it is deliverance from sin – and the provision of God’s fulness and completeness.
Jesus rose again by the power of the quickening Spirit.
His power at work in us is to lift us up so we are free from the curse of fallen humanity.
We are raised in Christ to live the abundant and overcoming life.
YOU ARE SAVED – TO ENJOY SO GREAT A SALVATION
