Religion can prevent people from understanding the truth about themselves. Religion can breed the pride that says, I'm okay. In Romans chapter two, Paul addresses the religious elite of his day, and shows how ceremony and ritual had insulated them from God's analysis of their hearts. Self-deception is especially deep when expressed in religious terms. In this message we discover why we need rescuing so badly.
Reading the book of Romans is like shining a light into darkness. In its pages we see ourselves as we really are. We find that, apart from God's grace, we are capable of awful things. In fact, we're morally bankrupt compared to our Creator. In this message we probe the darkness of the human heart, and the amazing light God shines into those hearts that come to believe in Jesus.
If you're tossed overboard into a stormy sea, the most important thing on your mind is being rescued. It's life or death. Humanity is overboard in the stormy sea of sin, and even though most people don't realize it, they're headed for an eternal death. Sinners need outside help, and so God has put in place a rescue plan from heaven: a plan outlined in the book of Romans.
While we're on earth, the clouds obscure the sky. We can't see the life to come as clearly as we see what's around us. But the Bible does give some tantalizing views of what's ahead for a child of God. In this message we peer across the great divide into the ultimate destiny for all who trust Christ.
The hymn-writer penned these words: clothed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne. The Bible tells us that, as believers in Christ, we're given new spiritual clothing. In this message, we will examine an Old Testament preview of this wonderful truth. As we look at Zechariah chapter 3, we will learn about Jesus, the Devil, and You.
