Rescued From Misplaced Faith Part 2
April 14, 2021
Part 2 of 2
When Paul wrote to the people of Rome, he gave conclusive evidence that no ritual can bring salvation. He let his Jewish readers know that their father Abraham was not justified through circumcision or law-keeping but rather through faith. Similarly, we might be tempted to believe that religiosity can save us, but these rituals are empty if they aren’t grounded in the promises of God in Christ.
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.
