When Jesus, the perfect Son of God, came to earth to offer Himself as a sacrifice for sin, He flung the door to salvation wide open to everyone who wants to enter. Alistair Begg points out from Romans Chapter 1 what it is that makes that redemption so accessible.
"In all things God works for the good..." These words from Romans 8:28 are quoted for many reasons. Join us in learning from Romans 8:28-30 that they are grounded in God's eternal love for His people, for whom all things - including present sufferings - ultimately work for good.
God's love for us - for each one of us - is expressed in the great cost He paid at Calvary, bearing the wrath that our sins deserve. But as we learn in this message, until the Holy Spirit shows me my sinfulness, I won't understand my need of salvation.
How can a sinful person become right with God? And how can God acquit the guilty? This study in Romans 3:21-26 reminds us of the truth that spurred the Reformation: justification is based on God's work of counting our sins against Christ and crediting the righteousness of Christ to our account. It is by faith alone, in Christ alone, and through grace alone.
When Paul encouraged Timothy to join in his suffering for the gospel, he left no question about what the gospel is. It is not a vague idea that can mean whatever we want, and it cannot be changed to suit our circumstances. As Alistair Begg explains, the gospel is the good news that sinful men and women are given new life and a new calling by faith in Christ, and it reorients how we view every aspect of life and ministry.
