Selected highlights from this sermon.
Jacob was a cheater, and yet he was communicating with God, and God actually had him in the line through which Christ would be eventually born. Thank God its apart from the Law because through the Law there is no righteousness of God. God put forth Jesus, which reminds us of the fact that salvation is of God. Jesus died for God, so that God could be acquitted he could be set free from the scandal that weve talked about, having fellowship with Old Testament saints without a final sacrifice. He gets to chapter 1 and it says, In the Gospel the righteousness of God is revealed, and he looks at the righteousness of God, and hatred against God wells up in his heart. Youll notice it says this in verse 26 (We already emphasized that Jesus was put forward as the propitiation of His blood to be received by faith for us.) This was to show Gods righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He passed over former sins. Youre going to come before God and say, Oh God, I am just so wonderful because I came to know your Son and Im so much better than the person standing next to me who has never believed, and Im taking credit for the fact that Im pretty wise in this business of salvation? Verse 29: Is God the God of the Jews only? And some of you who are depending upon your works, let me tell you that if anyone ever says to your question You know, If you were to stand before God and God were to say, Why shall I let you into heaven?
