Sunday AM Remix – 4.17.11

This week we continued our Triumph series learning about Being Triumphant over Sin.  What a great day it was at FBCH. The Gospel was preached, people responded and lives were restored.  God is really doing some great things in our midst! Each week I am excited to see what will happen next!  Special thanks goes out to Sean and Mary for sharing their story.  God used each of you greatly!!!

Here are my notes from today.

TRIUMPH
“Over Sin”
John 19:16-30

* The Cross is the Crux of Christianity
* Religion is about man trying to get to God, The Cross is about God descending to man.
* All of us are born for the purpose of living, Jesus was the only one born with the purpose of dying.

ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY JESUS FINISHED THE WORK OF . . . 

 1.  Being Our SUBSTITUTE.

*Substitute = paying my penalty

 “Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but He died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but He was raised to life in the Spirit.” 1 Peter 3:18 (NLT)

*Jesus didn’t just die for me, He died instead of me.
*The sinless one died for the sinful ones; The perfect one died for the imperfect ones.
*It was the Roman Soldiers that nailed Him there, but it was my sin that put Him there, and it was His love for me that kept Him there.

 “Yet it was our weaknesses He carried; it was our sorrows that weighed Him down.   And we thought His troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for His own sins!   But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins.   He was beaten so we could be whole.   He was whipped so we could be healed.   All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.   We have left God’s paths to follow our own.   Yet the Lord laid on Him the sins of us all.”  Isaiah 53:4-6 (NLT)

*Jesus was our Substitutional Atonement … Substitutional = paying my penalty, Atonement = making it right.

 2.  Satisfying the LAW.

 “But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When He was hung on the cross, He took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, ‘Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.’” Galatians 3:13 (NLT)

*The Law will tell you to fly, but will give you no wings. It will tell you to run, but give no legs. It will tell you to be clean, but give you no soap.
*The Law Exposes that we are Sinners in need of a Savior.
*Jesus not only reveals the law, but allows us to satisfy it.

 “The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving His Son as a sacrifice for our sins. He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.” Romans 8:3-4 (NLT)

 “For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given.  As a result, all who believe in Him are made right with God.”  Romans 10:4 (NLT)

 3.  Conquering SIN & DEATH.

 “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.   Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone.”  Romans 5:17-18 (NLT)

*Without Christ we have no power over sin.
*The Sanctification process is Gods power living in me & giving me power over sin. And One day, it will deliver me from the presence of sin.

 “When He died, He died once to break the power of sin. But now that He lives, He lives for the glory of God. So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.”  Romans 6:10-11 (NLT)

*As a church we are seeing God radically change people from the inside out.  We are beginning the process of collecting stories of what God is doing in the lives of the people here at FBCH.  Here is the first story that we have captured and want to share with you.

 4.  Defeating the Devil.

 “You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for He forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by His victory over them on the cross.” Colossians 2:13-15 (NLT)

HOW SHOULD I RESPOND?

 *  Repent of My Sin & Trust Jesus to Save Me.

 “For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death.”  2 Corinthians 7:10 (NLT)

*There is more to repentance than saying, “I’m Sorry.”
*Repentance includes
**Confession – Saying the same thing about sin that God does
**Contrition – mourning over the fact that you have sinned.

 “We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.”  Romans 3:22 (NLT)

 *  Live in Continual Gratitude.

 “So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.”  Romans 5:11 (NLT)

 *  Tell Others About It.
