Remembering What Jesus Paid For

/ Gift of Salvation

GOS-06 070715PM Today we remember Christ’s death upon the cross. Most communion tables in most churches used to have the words from the New Testament engraved upon them[1]say, “This do in remembrance of Me.”   The climactic end of Christ’s redemption as the Lamb of God was captured by John as he stood at the […]

Open the Gift of Redemption

/ Gift of Salvation

GOS-05 070218PM   Join me for the greatest theme in all the Bible—the redemption of lost sinners by the God who so loved the world that he gave His Son to die on a cross and shed His blood to pay the price of sin! And where better to see that theme than the way […]

Salvation – Redemption

EBG-03  GOS-04 070204AM As we open to Revelation 5, we are seeing ourselves in the future. And what is it we are doing when God lets us see ourselves? Singing praises to our Redeemer! There are few times that God’s Word allows us to actually see what we will be doing in Heaven, and they always […]

Salvation – Regeneration

EBG-02   GOS-03  GCM-37 070107PM We are continuing to look at our connection to Christ in salvation, the only gift everyone really needs. We have seen that the gift of salvation has seven key elements; and have examined forgiveness and justification. We have come to regeneration. Regeneration is a word that is much wider than the Bible […]

The Gift of Salvation Ignored: Jesus Explains Death and the Reality of Hell

/ Gift of Salvation

What will happen to anyone who ignores or rejects the Gift of Salvation?

As we open to Luke 16 this morning, we open to Christ’s clearest and most compelling words about what happens at the moment of death, to every human that will ever live. We find more details in less space than anywhere else in the Bible. This is Christ’s guide to the afterlife and is one of the most priceless insights anyone could get on what our endless future will be life. 

In just under 300 words in the NKJV, Jesus outlines more than a dozen absolutes of our eternal existence that each of us will possess at the moment we pass through the door of death and out of daily life on Earth.

The Gift of God With Us

/ Gift of Salvation

It is hard to say which element of the Gift of salvation that God gave us in Christ, is the BEST.

I think we will just have to each decide which element means most to us as we continue unwrapping our gifts this week. 

Last week as we unwrapped Matthew 1:21’s promise of forgiveness we saw Christ’s amazing, complete and final forgiveness. That is our first gift we are unwrapping this Christmas.

The Gift of Knowing God

/ Gift of Salvation

“The greatest thing in all my life is knowing You.” Those are the words of a simple chorus from the 1980’s. But they reflect the third and greatest of all the gifts that God has offered to mankind. 

The birth of Jesus Christ as God in human flesh, as the incarnation of the invisible God, has become the doorway to knowing God. We have been looking at and un-wrapping the gifts God gave at Christmas, and have already seen:

The First Two Gifts

First, in Matthew 1:21, we un-wrapped the truth attached to “the One who will save His people from their sins”. At the moment of our salvation, all our sins were forgiven, instantly, by the gracious work of Christ on the cross.

Inviting Jesus to Do What Only Jesus Can Do

/ Gift of Salvation

As we come to the element of salvation that we are un-wrapping in this Christmas series, we see again that Jesus is the gift of salvation. 

In Mathew 1 we saw Jesus as the One who forgives our sins; and Jesus is God with us.
Now in Luke 1 we see that Jesus is the key to unlocking all the wonders of salvation. The essence of what we will see in Luke 1 that what salvation is all about is:

Inviting Jesus to Do What ONLY Jesus Can Do

Only Jesus can save. Only Jesus can transform us. Only Jesus can keep us.

Justified – No Record of My Sin

/ Gift of Salvation

We have started a year-long look at the wonders of the gift of salvation. Today we ponder the gift of justification as we open to Romans 5

Salvation is of the Lord: initiated and designed by the Lord—and thus it is almost beyond human comprehension. But what we do know, revealed by God through His Word is incredible.

500 years ago an agonized Augustinian monk was starving himself to death, sleeping on a cold stone floor, hoping to please God.

The Gift of Salvation – Sanctified Living

/ Gift of Salvation

As we open to Colossians 3 we begin with four verses that declare the wonder of our salvation. Baptism is a look back at what Christ did to us, Communion is a look back at what Christ did for us on the Cross.

Follow along as we read the first four verses:

Colossians 3:1-4 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
