Rescued From The Folly Of Self-Salvation Part 2
April 06, 2021
Part 2 of 2
Our best attempts at goodness will never please God, who sees every act of human goodness as a filthy rag, compared to His own righteousness. Even the best of lives—filled with charity, philanthropy, and service—is tainted and unsuitable for entrance into heaven. Only God has a plan that will save us and take away the stain of our sinful natures and attempts for self-salvation.
These messages, based on the book of Romans, show that in the gift of salvation we see God at His best; the cross is God’s farthest outreach to us. Here we see the full range of His attributes, all converging together in an ambitious rescue plan for us as sinners.
The overriding message of the series is that the Gospel, properly understood, is not simply to believe on Christ at a point in time, but rather to understand why we need the Gospel every single day. We must depend on Christ to represent us to the Father daily, hourly. Here is hope for great sinners and instruction for struggling saints.
