Romans 1:16-17

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.”

Gospel of Christ is Gospel of grace

Ephesians 2:9

not of works, lest anyone should boast.

He called the grace of Christ

Galatians 1:6

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

What Jesus did at the cross, i pray that it will transform us to glorify Jesus

The gospel is the power of God unto salvation

Healing welfare prosperity protection – Salvation

The power of God to your wholeness and preservation

Through the preaching of the gospel of Christ

We hear the gospel but we forget how we hear it

In it the righteousness of God is revealed

The gospel is a revelation of a gift of righteousness Jesus made available to all men because of what Christ did at the cross

Hebrews 10:1-2

Christ’s Sacrifice Once for All

For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near. Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, since the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have any consciousness of sins?

Once been cleansed

Once cleansed no more consciousness of sin

Where sin increased grace super abound

2 Corinthians 5:21

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Made (Poiseo – to fashion)

Ephesians 2:8-10

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

We are His workmanship

A work of art (Poiema)

We are work of art. We are proclaiming the work of God by our lives

Stop trying to battle yourself

He made Jesus to be sin for us

Leviticus 6:25

Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin offering: In the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the sin offering be killed before the LORD: it is most holy.

Jesus died on the cross

His blood has fully met all the holy claim

Ginomai – to come into being

To birth forth

We are born again into the righteousness of God

Ephesians 4:22-23

That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

Romans 10:3

For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

When you receive grace you are full of thankfulness

Romans 5:20

Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:

The more man tried to keep it, you will see your sinful nature produce

Romans 10:3

For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

Romans 5:19

For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

2 Corinthians 10:5

casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

We are sinners because Adam sinned.

God sent His Son to be the second Adam. When He died at the cross, His obedience made us righteous

Is His obedience that makes us righteous.

Jesus sat down because His work is one sacrifice for sin forever

Hebrews 10:12

But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,

Hebrews 10:11

And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.

Give thanks to God by believing it and living like it

Keep on confessing who you are

You are born again you are born into the righteousness of God

Who you are will overcome what you do

Who you are is your standing

What you do is your state

Sometimes you feel rebellious

Sometimes you feel good

These are your states

Never judge your standing with your state

Always judge your state by your standing

Romans 5:19-20

For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.

Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,

The word entered – the law came besides. The law was added to the promise God made to Abraham

Grace is God doing

Law is man doing

Sin abounded (Pleonazo – increased)

Grace much more abound (huperperisseuo)

Perisseuo is more than increase, it is like the stars in heaven

It is like the dust in the ground, no one can count it

Huper – hyper

On top of overflowing

Where sin increased, God’s grace much more abound

2 Corinthians 12:9

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Sin – falling short

The very area i am falling short, God’s grace superabound!

Romans 5:20

Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,

David has 10 sons. God chose the one from Bathsheba, Solomon to become king. Where sin abounds, God’s grace super abounds

Peter, he denied the Lord 3 times. God used the same mouth that denied Him to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ on the day of Pentecost. 3000 people were saved!

Where sin abounds, God’s grace super abounds

The law kills, the spirit gives life

You are feeling depressed over your weakness.

You have the weakness, you have something no one has. This weakness, God’s grace superabound in it

Romans 6:1-2

Dead to Sin, Alive to God

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?

Died to sin -> happened in the past and cannot be repeated

How can we who died to sin live any longer in it

Romans 3:8

And why not say, “Let us do evil that good may come”?—as we are slanderously reported and as some affirm that we say. Their condemnation is just.

1 Corinthians 1:7

so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Galatians 1:8-9

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.

The same gospel that Paul preached

God is not satisfied with just a mere restoration

Leviticus 5:15-16 NASB

15 “If a person acts unfaithfully and sins unintentionally against the Lord’s holy things, then he shall bring his guilt offering to the Lord: a ram without defect from the flock, according to your assessment in silver by shekels, in terms of the shekel of the sanctuary, as a guilt offering. 16 And he shall make restitution for that which he has sinned against the holy thing, and shall add to it a fifth part of it and give it to the priest. The priest shall then make atonement for him with the ram of the guilt offering, and it will be forgiven him.

Jesus made Himself accountable for all we have lost. He is the One who will restore. Not just full price, but 120%!

Psalms 69:4

They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head:

they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty:

then I restored that which I took not away.

I restored that which i took not away

The Lord became the guilt offering. He restored what He did not steal or rob!

Jesus restored to God

God has became a gainer to what Jesus has done

God wants greater blessings for man

God is the “injured” party. The One who was robbed by us.

We have robbed man of the obedience, the respect

We are regretting those moments

Jesus has done something even for them

We are gaining. We have more souls saved during this time than ever

Luke 15:22-23

But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:

The son who came home from sin. He came back broken empty and yet receive

Romans 5:17

For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

Death is total

Yet Jesus has conquered death
