Sermon Note (Hillsong Conference 2015)Not Ashamed of the Gospel
We are all excited about One. One Person. Jesus! When He is strong, He is not hurtful. When He is kind, He is not soft. He is fully God yet fully Man. He is One of our own, the glorified Man.
He does not look at us the way we look at ourselves. He saw the weak not as what we see. He has compassion on them. When He saw the multitudes fainting and scattering He had compassion on them, as sheep without a Shepherd. He is a good Shepherd who gave His life to the sheep.
The first area of repentance is repentance towards God. It means change of mind. God is not against us He is for us!
He gives us the grace He first gave us and blesses us and reward us.
Mind are changing from smallness to greatness. Right believing produces right living. Right living is the fruit.
Fruit is the result of life.
We don’t use faith to condemn each other.
The Just Live by Faith
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
Salvation not only save from hell, but save from now! Salvation means SOZO. Your faith has healed u! Your healing is in salvation! It is the gospel of Christ!
Paul preached so radically that people accused him. He said i am not ashamed of the gospel.
You can receive righteousness you did not work for.
Confession of faith is I believe and therefore I speak !!
Jesus gives us the freedom from disruptive habit!
Grace is the Gospel. Grace is the Person of Jesus Christ!
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.
Adam’s disobedient. God hate death. God consider death an enemy. God hate sin because He loves us.
He hate sin to the degree He love us!!
Jesus took our sin upon Himself at the cross
God’s mercy sent His Son. God pronounce us righteous. We cannot lose that gift.
We are sinner because of Adam’s sin.
The obedience of faith. Obeying the truth. This is right believing.
In the midst of addiction, people are still sinning.
We have no power to stop the wrong and do the right.
Say I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST even as we are sinning.
The desire to sin becomes lesser and left completely.
As He is, so are we in this world!
Nothing is more depressive than to be self-occupied.
1 John 4:17
The Consummation of Love
Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.
Transform by beholding Jesus.
Gospel of Jesus Christ is the gospel of grace
Only One Gospel
I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.
Paul preached the pure gospel
Continue in the grace of God. Law always demand. Grace supplies.
When tomorrow comes, the supply will be there.
Don’t look at ourselves. As Jesus is, so am
I in this world!
When we reign in life, devil doesn’t. Reign in life by receiving the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness!!! 2000 years ago, a lonely figure hung on the cross
He knew no sin, but He became sin for us.
