The value of placing your faith in something is all about the object of your faith, and not about the faith itself. You can believe that an idol is God, but that doesn't change the fact that the idol is made of stone. Faith in the wrong place is worse than no faith at all, because it creates false confidence. And when it comes to salvation, false confidence is deadly.
The book of Romans has played a major role in world history. By reading its pages a man came to faith in Christ - a man whose actions began a spiritual tidal wave across Europe and around the world. His name was Martin Luther, and in this message, we'll trace his journey. We'll learn the story of a man desperate to know how he could be right before a holy God.
The Apostle Paul was trained in the Law, with a mind keen enough to argue before the Supreme Court. In Romans chapter three he builds a case for the revolutionary idea that God demands perfect righteousness from us. God then supplies what He demands by conferring the righteousness of Jesus on those who believe. In this message we learn about the wonderful gift called justification.
It's clear the Apostle Paul knew nothing of political correctness, because some of what he wrote was quite unpopular. He catalogs the depth of human depravity in chapter three of the book of Romans. He describes a list many would dispute, but an accurate list, nonetheless. In this message we see our true condition, and why we're in such desperate need of the grace of God as revealed in Jesus.
Football players call it putting on your game face. It means we project an air of invincibility whether we feel that way or not. To some degree, everyone projects an outward appearance that may not square with inner reality. Regarding salvation, it's easy to make yourself and others believe that all is well when it's far from well. In this message we learn how God delivers believers from this deceptive mindset.
