September 10, 2017

Many Christians feel more guilty than non-Christians.

I. The uniqueness of grace - Romans 3:23-28

God’s Way of Accepting People

"Now we see how God does make us acceptable to him…. God treats everyone alike. He accepts people only because they have faith in Jesus Christ. All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. But God treats us much better than we deserve, and because of Christ Jesus, he freely accepts us and sets us free from our sins…. We see that people are acceptable to God because they have faith, and not because they obey the Law."
-Romans 3:21-28 (CEV)

II. The loss of grace
A.The bar is higher
B.Trying harder produces more failure
C.Twisted thinking cf. Romans 5:8-10 (NIV)
D.The devil

III. The experience of grace - Romans 7:14-8:1

"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…."
-Romans 8:1 (NIV)
