We Have a Problem What does God require of us? Leviticus 19:2 “Be Holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.” Luke 10:28 “Do this (love God and your neighbor perfectly) and you will live.” + Holiness -Sin________ =Life
We Still Have a Problem What does God see? Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Isaiah 59:2 “Your iniquities have separated you from your God.” Romans 6:23 “The wages of sin is death.” -Holiness + Sin________ = Death
Man’s Solution If I do more good than evil, I will be right with God. I’ll try harder from now on. I’m better than…
However… Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end leads to death. James 2:10 Whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.
God’s Solution Jesus is… – 1Peter 1:19 A Lamb without blemish or defect – 1John 5:20 The true God and eternal life – Jeremiah 23:6 The Lord our Righteousness
What Jesus has done John 1:29 – Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! Isaiah 53:6 – The Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. 2Corinthians 5:21 – God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
How we receive this “Great Exchange” By Grace (Sola Gratia) – Titus 3:5 He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. – Romans 6:23 The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
How we receive this “Great Exchange” Through Faith (Sola Fidei) – John 3:36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him. – Ephesians 2:8 By grace you have been saved through faith – and this is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.
How we receive this “Great Exchange” Via His Word (Sola Scriptura) – Romans 10:17 Faith comes from hearing the message… through the Word of Christ. – Romans 1:16 The gospel… is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.
Sanctified Christians John 10:10 – I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Ephesians 2:10 – We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works. Ephesians 2:19 – You are no longer… aliens, but… members of God’s household.
