What Does Utterly Helpless Mean? 6 When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. - Romans 5:6 hopeless \ ˈ hō-pləs\ adj\adj 1 c : incapable of redemption or improvement 1 utter \ ˈ ə-tər\ adj\adj : carried to the utmost point or highest degree : ABSOLUTE, TOTAL 〈 utter darkness 〉 — utterly adv helpless \ ˈ hel-pləs; Southern often ˈ hep-ləs\ 1 : lacking protection or support : DEFENSELESS 12 When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned. - Romans 5:12
God’s Redemptive Plan to Counter SIN!! 25 He (Jesus) was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God. - Romans 4:25 20 Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. 21 He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. 22 And because of Abraham’s faith, God counted him as righteous. 23 And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded 24 for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. - Romans 4:20-24
Our Faith, God’s Great Love Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. – Romans 5:1 But It’s More Than Peace: 2 Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. – Romans 5:8 God’s Great Love 9 And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he (Lord Jesus) will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. – Romans 5:9
New (Eternal) Life 10 For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. 11 So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God. – Romans 5:10-11 Casting Off the Old, Embracing the New!! For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins. 17 For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ. -Rom 5:16-17
BENEDICTION May the peace of God which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord; and may the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be yours now and forever. Amen
