  • 00:01:02.110 --> 00:01:06.090
  • And now here's your host, Dr. David Jeremiah.
  • 00:01:12.100 --> 00:01:15.030
  • Dr. David Jeremiah: Most people think of the gospel
  • 00:01:15.290 --> 00:01:17.220
  • as the truth we must believe to be saved, and it is.
  • 00:01:17.230 --> 00:01:22.090
  • The problem is, once we are saved,
  • 00:01:22.100 --> 00:01:24.260
  • it's easy to forget about the gospel.
  • 00:01:24.270 --> 00:01:27.100
  • But as Christians,
  • 00:01:27.110 --> 00:01:28.290
  • we are called to be fully engaged with the gospel,
  • 00:01:29.000 --> 00:01:33.130
  • and that is the title of my message today.
  • 00:01:33.140 --> 00:01:36.140
  • Why fully engaged?
  • 00:01:36.150 --> 00:01:39.140
  • Because the gospel is the power of God.
  • 00:01:39.150 --> 00:01:42.140
  • It impacts every area of our life,
  • 00:01:42.150 --> 00:01:45.010
  • our family, our finances, friendships,
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:47.240
  • and even our future.
  • 00:01:47.250 --> 00:01:50.080
  • And when the power of God changes us,
  • 00:01:50.090 --> 00:01:53.050
  • we become witnesses for how it can change others as well.
  • 00:01:53.060 --> 00:01:57.280
  • We accept and believe the gospel one time,
  • 00:01:57.290 --> 00:02:01.080
  • but we live out the gospel every single day.
  • 00:02:01.090 --> 00:02:05.050
  • We become stewards of God's gracious good news.
  • 00:02:05.060 --> 00:02:09.230
  • That is a weighty responsibility,
  • 00:02:09.240 --> 00:02:12.150
  • and doing so means committing to a fully engaged life.
  • 00:02:12.160 --> 00:02:18.080
  • So, stay with me
  • 00:02:18.090 --> 00:02:19.180
  • and let's explore the gospel together

  • when he was here on earth.
  • 00:02:30.060 --> 00:02:32.120

  • 00:03:49.020 --> 00:03:51.010
  • 00:03:52.080 --> 00:04:00.070
  • Dr. Jeremiah: Let me read to you the words of a man
  • 00:04:00.290 --> 00:04:03.190
  • who was fully engaged with the gospel.
  • 00:04:03.200 --> 00:04:06.000
  • His name is Paul, and he wrote
  • 00:04:06.010 --> 00:04:08.100
  • this incredible letter to the Romans.
  • 00:04:08.110 --> 00:04:11.090
  • In the 16th and 17th verses, we read his words,
  • 00:04:11.100 --> 00:04:15.280
  • "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,
  • 00:04:15.290 --> 00:04:21.010
  • for it is the power of God to salvation
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:23.110
  • for everyone who believes,
  • 00:04:23.120 --> 00:04:25.190
  • for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
  • 00:04:25.200 --> 00:04:28.170
  • For in it the righteousness of God
  • 00:04:28.180 --> 00:04:31.000
  • is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written,
  • 00:04:31.010 --> 00:04:34.110
  • 'The just shall live by faith.'"
  • 00:04:34.120 --> 00:04:39.020
  • If you've ever dabbled at all in theology, you know these are
  • 00:04:39.030 --> 00:04:42.000
  • two of the most important verses in the Bible.
  • 00:04:42.010 --> 00:04:47.080
  • There are no two verses like it any place in the Scripture,
  • 00:04:47.090 --> 00:04:51.010
  • these words are the essence of Christianity,
  • 00:04:51.020 --> 00:04:54.000
  • and in many respects,
  • 00:04:54.010 --> 00:04:55.180
  • these two verses are responsible for the Protestant Reformation.
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:05:01.200
  • Knowing that Paul was on his way to Rome,
  • 00:05:01.210 --> 00:05:05.110
  • the imperial city of his day,
  • 00:05:05.120 --> 00:05:08.110
  • he's writing to the Romans to whom he is about to visit,
  • 00:05:08.120 --> 00:05:11.180
  • and he wants them to know
  • 00:05:11.190 --> 00:05:13.010
  • what he's bringing with him when he comes.
  • 00:05:13.020 --> 00:05:16.070
  • He wants them to know that the gospel is his message
  • 00:05:16.080 --> 00:05:19.160
  • and that he is not ashamed of it.
  • 00:05:19.170 --> 00:05:22.150
  • He saying, "Though I may be the laughingstock
  • 00:05:22.160 --> 00:05:25.020
  • of the aristocratic thinkers in the city of Rome,
  • 00:05:25.030 --> 00:05:28.040
  • I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:05:28.050 --> 00:05:34.110
  • Sometimes today, as you look around,
  • 00:05:34.120 --> 00:05:36.110
  • you notice that some folks are ashamed of the gospel.
  • 00:05:36.120 --> 00:05:40.170
  • They're all right to do church.
  • 00:05:40.180 --> 00:05:43.000
  • They're all right to be good people.
  • 00:05:43.010 --> 00:05:45.120
  • They're all right even to be known as religious,
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:47.110
  • perhaps even as evangelicals.
  • 00:05:47.120 --> 00:05:49.070
  • But when it comes to the gospel,
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:50.230
  • they think maybe that's a bit over the top,
  • 00:05:50.240 --> 00:05:54.050
  • and they don't want to be involved
  • 00:05:54.060 --> 00:05:55.150
  • in preaching the gospel
  • 00:05:55.160 --> 00:05:57.040
  • or trumpeting the call of the gospel.
  • 00:05:57.050 --> 00:05:59.210
  • Sometimes it's true that they're this way
  • 00:05:59.220 --> 00:06:02.180
  • because of intellectual reasons.
  • 00:06:02.190 --> 00:06:05.030
  • Paul ran into that in his life.
  • 00:06:05.040 --> 00:06:06.280
  • When he wrote to the Corinthians,
  • 00:06:06.290 --> 00:06:08.080
  • he said the Jews view the gospel as a stumbling block,
  • 00:06:08.090 --> 00:06:12.270
  • and the Greeks think it's foolishness.
  • 00:06:12.280 --> 00:06:16.170
  • Well, he's about to go to Rome filled up with Greeks
  • 00:06:16.180 --> 00:06:20.280
  • to tell them about the gospel, which they think is foolishness.
  • 00:06:20.290 --> 00:06:26.150
  • Just think of it, in the midst of the pomp and ceremony
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:30.230
  • of these Roman emperors
  • 00:06:30.240 --> 00:06:32.220
  • and in the imperial city of Rome,
  • 00:06:32.230 --> 00:06:35.140
  • here comes this guy who says that the Savior of the world
  • 00:06:35.150 --> 00:06:39.250
  • was a carpenter who grew up in Nazareth,
  • 00:06:39.260 --> 00:06:42.220
  • and imagines the ridicule and laughter of the court
  • 00:06:42.230 --> 00:06:46.250
  • and the great people when they're saying to one another,
  • 00:06:46.260 --> 00:06:49.160
  • "The latest joke in town is there's this guy who arrived
  • 00:06:49.170 --> 00:06:53.010
  • actually saying that a carpenter
  • 00:06:53.020 --> 00:06:54.220
  • from Nazareth in the land of the Jews
  • 00:06:54.230 --> 00:06:56.230
  • is the Son of God.
  • 00:06:56.240 --> 00:06:58.200
  • And not only that, he's the Savior of the world,
  • 00:07:00.240 --> 00:07:03.290
  • and that he saves the world by dying helplessly on a cross.
  • 00:07:04.000 --> 00:07:07.070
  • How funny is that?"
  • 00:07:07.080 --> 00:07:10.030
  • A lot of people view the gospel in that in that way.
  • 00:07:10.040 --> 00:07:13.270
  • Intellectually, it's inconceivable to them
  • 00:07:13.280 --> 00:07:16.130
  • that the story of the gospel could be actually true.
  • 00:07:16.140 --> 00:07:19.270
  • Sometimes they reject it for philosophical reasons
  • 00:07:19.280 --> 00:07:23.030
  • because, you see, the gospel reverses
  • 00:07:23.040 --> 00:07:26.070
  • all of the other religions of the world.
  • 00:07:26.080 --> 00:07:29.030
  • All of the religions of the world teach
  • 00:07:29.040 --> 00:07:31.100
  • that you get to God by climbing up to him
  • 00:07:31.110 --> 00:07:34.080
  • through all of the works of righteousness
  • 00:07:34.090 --> 00:07:36.120
  • that you can manage.
  • 00:07:36.130 --> 00:07:37.290
  • But the gospel says it's exactly the opposite.
  • 00:07:38.000 --> 00:07:41.010
  • You don't climb up to God, God reaches down to you.
  • 00:07:41.020 --> 00:07:46.250
  • So, the gospel's counterintuitive
  • 00:07:46.260 --> 00:07:48.160
  • to every kind of philosophical thinking you can imagine.
  • 00:07:48.170 --> 00:07:53.120
  • Someone has said that Christianity is
  • 00:07:53.130 --> 00:07:55.020
  • the unreligion of the world because it turns
  • 00:07:55.030 --> 00:07:58.220
  • all our religious instincts on their heads.
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:08:02.200
  • Sometimes people reject this gospel
  • 00:08:02.210 --> 00:08:05.020
  • because of social reasons.
  • 00:08:05.030 --> 00:08:08.210
  • It's not respectable to be a Christian, did you know that?
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:11.220
  • Criticism of Catholics and evangelicals
  • 00:08:11.230 --> 00:08:14.290
  • berating them almost as if to be a Christian,
  • 00:08:15.000 --> 00:08:18.020
  • an Evangelical, or a committed Catholic
  • 00:08:18.030 --> 00:08:21.020
  • is to live beneath the intellectual line
  • 00:08:21.030 --> 00:08:25.020
  • that is acceptable to the more aristocratic people.
  • 00:08:25.030 --> 00:08:29.150
  • The Bible says that God chooses people
  • 00:08:29.160 --> 00:08:31.280
  • and he tells us how he goes about it.
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:34.010
  • He says, not many wise, and not many mighty,
  • 00:08:34.020 --> 00:08:36.210
  • and not many noble are called.
  • 00:08:36.220 --> 00:08:38.250
  • He didn't say not any, he said not many.
  • 00:08:38.260 --> 00:08:42.080
  • We're just common people.
  • 00:08:42.090 --> 00:08:44.150
  • We're the people God has chosen,
  • 00:08:44.160 --> 00:08:46.010
  • and those who do not like the gospel
  • 00:08:46.020 --> 00:08:48.160
  • find that to be socially revolting,
  • 00:08:48.170 --> 00:08:51.290
  • that God should choose people like us
  • 00:08:52.000 --> 00:08:55.230
  • to be born into his family.
  • 00:08:55.240 --> 00:08:58.170
  • And some people are disengaged with the gospel
  • 00:08:58.180 --> 00:09:01.210
  • for moral reasons.
  • 00:09:01.220 --> 00:09:03.290
  • One day I was in my office
  • 00:09:04.000 --> 00:09:05.110
  • in the church that I started in Fort Wayne
  • 00:09:05.120 --> 00:09:07.110
  • and a man came to see me.
  • 00:09:07.120 --> 00:09:09.280
  • And he'd heard me preach the day before,
  • 00:09:09.290 --> 00:09:11.140
  • and I gave a gospel message.
  • 00:09:11.150 --> 00:09:12.260
  • And he said, "I just wanted to come by and tell you
  • 00:09:12.270 --> 00:09:15.210
  • that I've been thinking about being a Christian,
  • 00:09:15.220 --> 00:09:17.190
  • but I don't think I'm gonna do it," and I said, "Why?"
  • 00:09:17.200 --> 00:09:19.200
  • He said, "Well, Dr. Jeremiah, it'd be
  • 00:09:19.210 --> 00:09:21.140
  • just downright inconvenient for me right now,
  • 00:09:21.150 --> 00:09:23.240
  • if you want to know the truth."
  • 00:09:23.250 --> 00:09:25.270
  • Then he began to tell me what--it would have been
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:28.020
  • very inconvenient for him to have become a Christian.
  • 00:09:28.030 --> 00:09:30.060
  • But how many of you know that Christ comes
  • 00:09:30.070 --> 00:09:32.100
  • to take us out of our convenience
  • 00:09:32.110 --> 00:09:34.180
  • and give us something far more important
  • 00:09:34.190 --> 00:09:36.180
  • than anything we've got going for us at the time?
  • 00:09:36.190 --> 00:09:39.280
  • But there are many people who do not like the gospel
  • 00:09:39.290 --> 00:09:43.090
  • because, you see, the gospel is offensive to the pride of man.
  • 00:09:43.100 --> 00:09:47.110
  • The gospel tells men that they are sinners,
  • 00:09:47.120 --> 00:09:49.230
  • and that they're rebels,
  • 00:09:49.240 --> 00:09:51.030
  • that they're under the wrath and condemnation of God,
  • 00:09:51.040 --> 00:09:53.160
  • and they can't do anything about it themselves.
  • 00:09:53.170 --> 00:09:56.010
  • And that is so revolting
  • 00:09:56.020 --> 00:09:57.120
  • to the modern, "I can get it myself" person.
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:10:01.290
  • So, as we unpack these two verses,
  • 00:10:02.000 --> 00:10:04.070
  • I want you to think with me,
  • 00:10:04.080 --> 00:10:06.010
  • not only about what Paul is saying concerning himself,
  • 00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:09.130
  • but what Paul is saying to us,
  • 00:10:09.140 --> 00:10:12.050
  • "Why should I be fully engaged with the gospel?"
  • 00:10:12.060 --> 00:10:16.210
  • And he helps us understand that in these two verses.
  • 00:10:16.220 --> 00:10:19.290
  • First of all, it's the gospel, the gospel.
  • 00:10:20.000 --> 00:10:25.130
  • The word "gospel" is made up of two Greek words.
  • 00:10:25.140 --> 00:10:27.270
  • One word means news
  • 00:10:27.280 --> 00:10:30.070
  • and the little preface to the word means good.
  • 00:10:30.080 --> 00:10:34.200
  • The word "gospel" means good news.
  • 00:10:34.210 --> 00:10:38.080
  • How could you not want to be fully engaged with good news?
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:41.080
  • It's an announcement, not about what we do for God,
  • 00:10:41.090 --> 00:10:44.280
  • it's an announcement about what God has done for us.
  • 00:10:44.290 --> 00:10:47.270
  • The gospel isn't a list
  • 00:10:47.280 --> 00:10:49.070
  • of things you need to do to get to God.
  • 00:10:49.080 --> 00:10:51.090
  • The gospel is a list
  • 00:10:51.100 --> 00:10:52.190
  • of everything God has done to reach down to you.
  • 00:10:52.200 --> 00:10:56.110
  • Tim Keller says, "Here's the gospel.
  • 00:10:56.120 --> 00:10:58.150
  • You're more sinful than you ever dared believe,
  • 00:10:58.160 --> 00:11:00.220
  • and you're more loved than you ever dared hope."
  • 00:11:00.230 --> 00:11:03.190
  • Isn't that the truth?
  • 00:11:03.200 --> 00:11:06.040
  • Listen to how Paul continues, the power of God to salvation.
  • 00:11:06.050 --> 00:11:11.000
  • The gospel is, not only the promise of good news,
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:14.270
  • it's the power that God brings into the situation.
  • 00:11:14.280 --> 00:11:19.240
  • By the way, if you're a grammatical student,
  • 00:11:19.250 --> 00:11:21.220
  • you might notice that the word "for"
  • 00:11:21.230 --> 00:11:23.250
  • is in these two verses a lot.
  • 00:11:23.260 --> 00:11:26.050
  • The word "for" is a word that tells you
  • 00:11:26.060 --> 00:11:27.270
  • this is the because in the sentence.
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:31.030
  • We should not be ashamed of the gospel
  • 00:11:31.040 --> 00:11:32.290
  • because the gospel is the power of God to salvation.
  • 00:11:33.000 --> 00:11:37.010
  • Did you know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is
  • 00:11:37.020 --> 00:11:39.040
  • the most powerful force in the universe?
  • 00:11:39.050 --> 00:11:42.120
  • It is the deliverance of man
  • 00:11:42.130 --> 00:11:44.150
  • from the consequences of the fall and sin.
  • 00:11:44.160 --> 00:11:48.090
  • To be saved means to be set free from the greatest evil
  • 00:11:48.100 --> 00:11:53.000
  • and placed in the possession of the greatest good.
  • 00:11:53.010 --> 00:11:56.200
  • A friend of mine
  • 00:11:56.210 --> 00:11:58.000
  • who is a young teacher of the Word of God
  • 00:11:58.010 --> 00:12:00.070
  • by the name of J.D. Greear
  • 00:12:00.080 --> 00:12:01.290
  • has written a little book on the gospel,
  • 00:12:02.000 --> 00:12:04.020
  • and in that book, he makes this incredible statement,
  • 00:12:04.030 --> 00:12:07.170
  • "The gospel reveals a greater power
  • 00:12:07.180 --> 00:12:10.100
  • than even the power of creation.
  • 00:12:10.110 --> 00:12:13.200
  • It is the power of new creation, redeeming from sin
  • 00:12:13.210 --> 00:12:18.000
  • and regenerating life from death.
  • 00:12:18.010 --> 00:12:20.270
  • Did you know that nothing else in the Bible,
  • 00:12:20.280 --> 00:12:23.190
  • except for Christ himself,
  • 00:12:23.200 --> 00:12:25.140
  • is referred to as the power of God?
  • 00:12:25.150 --> 00:12:28.160
  • Think about that.
  • 00:12:28.170 --> 00:12:29.260
  • The sun is 9900 degrees Fahrenheit
  • 00:12:29.270 --> 00:12:33.140
  • on the surface,
  • 00:12:33.150 --> 00:12:34.240
  • and 27 million degrees at its core.
  • 00:12:34.250 --> 00:12:37.230
  • Tsunami waves rise up to 100 feet high
  • 00:12:37.240 --> 00:12:40.290
  • and travel at over 80 miles an hour,
  • 00:12:41.000 --> 00:12:43.160
  • destroying everything in their path.
  • 00:12:43.170 --> 00:12:46.040
  • A recently discovered star
  • 00:12:46.050 --> 00:12:47.230
  • is reported to streak through the heavens
  • 00:12:47.240 --> 00:12:49.090
  • at 1.5 miles per second.
  • 00:12:49.100 --> 00:12:51.260
  • We know of volcanoes that spew lava
  • 00:12:51.270 --> 00:12:54.110
  • up to 17 miles into the atmosphere,
  • 00:12:54.120 --> 00:12:56.260
  • whose eruptions can be heard
  • 00:12:56.270 --> 00:12:58.070
  • from more than 3.000 miles away.
  • 00:12:58.080 --> 00:13:01.250
  • And none of these is called the power of God.
  • 00:13:01.260 --> 00:13:05.170
  • Jesus's victorious work of putting away our sin forever
  • 00:13:05.180 --> 00:13:09.240
  • is what the Bible calls the power of God."
  • 00:13:09.250 --> 00:13:14.000
  • If you're a Christian here today
  • 00:13:14.010 --> 00:13:15.270
  • because you've accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior,
  • 00:13:15.280 --> 00:13:19.020
  • you are a very wonderfully blessed and unique person.
  • 00:13:19.030 --> 00:13:23.050
  • You have experienced the power of God.
  • 00:13:23.060 --> 00:13:28.200
  • Men and women, I'm here to tell you,
  • 00:13:28.210 --> 00:13:30.020
  • like never before in all of my time as a pastor,
  • 00:13:30.030 --> 00:13:33.250
  • I am so excited and committed to be involved
  • 00:13:33.260 --> 00:13:37.020
  • as a distributor of the power of God
  • 00:13:37.030 --> 00:13:41.100
  • because as I look at the world today,
  • 00:13:41.110 --> 00:13:43.160
  • it is the only thing powerful enough
  • 00:13:43.170 --> 00:13:45.280
  • to rescue us from ourselves.
  • 00:13:45.290 --> 00:13:50.010
  • And I hope you catch, in this sermon today,
  • 00:13:50.020 --> 00:13:52.110
  • that all of us need to reenergize ourselves
  • 00:13:52.120 --> 00:13:55.240
  • toward this message,
  • 00:13:55.250 --> 00:13:57.040
  • which is the one life-changing thing
  • 00:13:57.050 --> 00:13:59.000
  • we have to offer to a dying and desperate world.
  • 00:13:59.010 --> 00:14:03.020
  • We should be totally engaged with the gospel
  • 00:14:03.030 --> 00:14:06.010
  • because of the promise of the gospel.
  • 00:14:06.020 --> 00:14:07.210
  • It's the good news because of the power of the gospel.
  • 00:14:07.220 --> 00:14:11.010
  • It's the gospel that leads us to salvation.
  • 00:14:11.020 --> 00:14:14.240
  • And because of the purpose of the gospel, it says,
  • 00:14:14.250 --> 00:14:16.230
  • for everyone who believes.
  • 00:14:16.240 --> 00:14:19.150
  • John 3:16 says that God loves the world,
  • 00:14:19.160 --> 00:14:22.090
  • and that if we believe in him, we won't perish.
  • 00:14:22.100 --> 00:14:25.230
  • Acts 2:21 says, "And it shall come to pass
  • 00:14:25.240 --> 00:14:28.220
  • that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
  • 00:14:28.230 --> 00:14:32.040
  • Yes, the gospel is God's power offered to us,
  • 00:14:32.050 --> 00:14:36.020
  • but it must be received by us.
  • 00:14:36.030 --> 00:14:39.100
  • And the Bible says there's a priority to the gospel.
  • 00:14:39.110 --> 00:14:42.240
  • Some people struggle with this.
  • 00:14:42.250 --> 00:14:45.260
  • This verse says the gospel comes first to the Jews
  • 00:14:45.270 --> 00:14:48.080
  • and then to the Greeks, to the Gentiles.
  • 00:14:48.090 --> 00:14:53.180
  • Now, there's only one gospel.
  • 00:14:53.190 --> 00:14:56.100
  • So, if you've heard some of the rumors
  • 00:14:56.110 --> 00:14:57.240
  • that have been floating around lately
  • 00:14:57.250 --> 00:14:59.060
  • that Jewish people get saved
  • 00:14:59.070 --> 00:15:00.180
  • in a different way than Gentiles,
  • 00:15:00.190 --> 00:15:02.000
  • don't believe it because there's only one gospel.
  • 00:15:02.010 --> 00:15:04.240
  • There's not gospel number one and gospel number two,
  • 00:15:04.250 --> 00:15:07.070
  • or Plan A and B.
  • 00:15:07.080 --> 00:15:08.180
  • There's just one gospel, the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:11.210
  • The gospel is the great leveler.
  • 00:15:11.220 --> 00:15:13.180
  • Everybody comes to faith the same way.
  • 00:15:13.190 --> 00:15:15.250
  • When you get to heaven, everybody else who's there
  • 00:15:15.260 --> 00:15:18.120
  • got there the same way you did.
  • 00:15:18.130 --> 00:15:20.290
  • Nobody climbed up over the wall.
  • 00:15:21.000 --> 00:15:22.250
  • Nobody offered some bribe.
  • 00:15:22.260 --> 00:15:24.170
  • Nobody said, "I'm better than they are."
  • 00:15:24.180 --> 00:15:26.240
  • You only get into heaven one way,
  • 00:15:26.250 --> 00:15:28.240
  • that's through the gospel of Jesus Christ,
  • 00:15:28.250 --> 00:15:30.130
  • whether you're Jewish or Gentile
  • 00:15:30.140 --> 00:15:32.000
  • or Muslim, or whoever you are.
  • 00:15:32.010 --> 00:15:34.040
  • The gospel is the great leveler.
  • 00:15:34.050 --> 00:15:35.270
  • But in the economy of God, he allowed the gospel
  • 00:15:35.280 --> 00:15:38.240
  • to begin to his chosen people, the Jews,
  • 00:15:38.250 --> 00:15:42.130
  • and you and I are grafted in to this
  • 00:15:42.140 --> 00:15:45.040
  • because listen to Acts chapter 13.
  • 00:15:45.050 --> 00:15:49.280
  • "Paul and Barnabas grew bold and said,
  • 00:15:49.290 --> 00:15:51.250
  • 'It was necessary that the word of God
  • 00:15:51.260 --> 00:15:54.070
  • should be spoken to you first; but since you reject it,
  • 00:15:54.080 --> 00:15:58.050
  • and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life,
  • 00:15:58.060 --> 00:16:01.100
  • behold, we turn to the Gentiles."
  • 00:16:01.110 --> 00:16:05.050
  • It's the same gospel to the Jew first,
  • 00:16:05.060 --> 00:16:08.230
  • and also to the Greek.
  • 00:16:08.240 --> 00:16:12.020
  • And then we should never be disengaged with the gospel,
  • 00:16:12.030 --> 00:16:15.170
  • not only because of the promise of the gospel,
  • 00:16:15.180 --> 00:16:17.240
  • that it's the good news;
  • 00:16:17.250 --> 00:16:19.190
  • and the power of the gospel
  • 00:16:19.200 --> 00:16:20.290
  • because it's what causes salvation to happen;
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:23.250
  • or the purpose of the gospel for everyone who will believe;
  • 00:16:23.260 --> 00:16:27.290
  • or the priority of the gospel,
  • 00:16:28.000 --> 00:16:29.180
  • the Jew first and then the Greek;
  • 00:16:29.190 --> 00:16:32.140
  • but because of the plan of gospel,
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:34.200
  • the righteousness of God is revealed.
  • 00:16:34.210 --> 00:16:38.290
  • Put on your thinking caps right now,
  • 00:16:39.000 --> 00:16:41.060
  • don't take a mental vacation.
  • 00:16:41.070 --> 00:16:44.220
  • Stay with me for these moments.
  • 00:16:44.230 --> 00:16:46.050
  • These are the most important truths in this verse.
  • 00:16:46.060 --> 00:16:50.030
  • We should be engaged with the gospel
  • 00:16:50.040 --> 00:16:52.070
  • because it's the gospel that helps us understand
  • 00:16:52.080 --> 00:16:54.230
  • how we can become worthy of heaven.
  • 00:16:54.240 --> 00:16:59.270
  • Ladies and gentlemen, when Jesus died on the cross,
  • 00:16:59.280 --> 00:17:02.250
  • he took all of our sin upon himself
  • 00:17:02.260 --> 00:17:05.280
  • and stood in our place,
  • 00:17:05.290 --> 00:17:07.230
  • but that's not the end of the story.
  • 00:17:07.240 --> 00:17:10.020
  • In exchange for our sin, he gave to us his righteousness,
  • 00:17:10.030 --> 00:17:15.290
  • so that we can now stand before God,
  • 00:17:16.000 --> 00:17:18.040
  • not because of anything we have done,
  • 00:17:18.050 --> 00:17:20.010
  • but we are the receivers of the righteousness of God
  • 00:17:20.020 --> 00:17:23.280
  • through salvation in Jesus Christ alone.
  • 00:17:23.290 --> 00:17:27.010
  • We should not be disengaged with the gospel.
  • 00:17:27.020 --> 00:17:29.070
  • How could we be disengaged
  • 00:17:29.080 --> 00:17:30.170
  • with something so marvelous, so wonderful?
  • 00:17:30.180 --> 00:17:34.230
  • The verse ends with this thought
  • 00:17:34.240 --> 00:17:37.030
  • that we should not be disengaged with the gospel
  • 00:17:37.040 --> 00:17:39.060
  • because of the principle of the gospel.
  • 00:17:39.070 --> 00:17:41.260
  • "For everyone who believes from faith to faith,
  • 00:17:41.270 --> 00:17:45.200
  • the just shall live by faith."
  • 00:17:45.210 --> 00:17:48.030
  • So, here's this gospel, the power of God,
  • 00:17:48.040 --> 00:17:51.000
  • how do we get it?
  • 00:17:51.010 --> 00:17:52.120
  • We get it by faith.
  • 00:17:52.130 --> 00:17:55.270
  • One interpretation of this says
  • 00:17:55.280 --> 00:17:57.140
  • that it's out of faith and into faith,
  • 00:17:57.150 --> 00:18:00.110
  • and the idea is that it comes to us sometimes through others.
  • 00:18:00.120 --> 00:18:03.110
  • The righteousness of God is conveyed to me
  • 00:18:03.120 --> 00:18:05.230
  • out of the testimony of another man's faith
  • 00:18:05.240 --> 00:18:08.110
  • into the receptivity of my faith.
  • 00:18:08.120 --> 00:18:10.090
  • One man preaches, another man believes,
  • 00:18:10.100 --> 00:18:12.250
  • and faith comes to your heart,
  • 00:18:12.260 --> 00:18:14.150
  • from faith to faith, and people believe.
  • 00:18:14.160 --> 00:18:18.200
  • As I ask you today,
  • 00:18:18.210 --> 00:18:20.060
  • think about how you came to know Jesus Christ.
  • 00:18:20.070 --> 00:18:22.070
  • Was it not someone who told you about him,
  • 00:18:22.080 --> 00:18:24.010
  • either your parents
  • 00:18:24.020 --> 00:18:25.110
  • or the people in your small group
  • 00:18:25.120 --> 00:18:26.210
  • or in your class or maybe a preacher?
  • 00:18:26.220 --> 00:18:28.240
  • How do we get this faith?
  • 00:18:28.250 --> 00:18:30.040
  • It's from faith to faith,
  • 00:18:30.050 --> 00:18:31.140
  • and when we get the faith, we receive it.
  • 00:18:31.150 --> 00:18:33.140
  • Now we become reservoirs,
  • 00:18:33.150 --> 00:18:34.240
  • and from our lives, others get faith.
  • 00:18:34.250 --> 00:18:37.090
  • So, the gospel says the way faith is communicated
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:40.050
  • is it originally comes from God.
  • 00:18:40.060 --> 00:18:42.030
  • It's deposited in a human,
  • 00:18:42.040 --> 00:18:43.160
  • and through that faith in that human,
  • 00:18:43.170 --> 00:18:45.000
  • he is the transferor of that faith to others.
  • 00:18:45.010 --> 00:18:49.100
  • The gospel is shared by faith.
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:52.030
  • I'm here to tell you today
  • 00:18:52.040 --> 00:18:53.140
  • that there's someone waiting for you to share your faith.
  • 00:18:53.150 --> 00:19:00.140
  • Did you ever think about what that term means?
  • 00:19:00.150 --> 00:19:03.010
  • "I want to share my faith," that doesn't mean
  • 00:19:03.020 --> 00:19:05.280
  • just talk about what you believe.
  • 00:19:05.290 --> 00:19:07.080
  • That means take the faith that God has given to you
  • 00:19:07.090 --> 00:19:09.250
  • and allow yourself to be a conduit
  • 00:19:09.260 --> 00:19:12.160
  • so that that faith can come from you into others,
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:15.190
  • from faith to faith.
  • 00:19:15.200 --> 00:19:19.210
  • Every one of us has some faith to give away, don't we?
  • 00:19:19.220 --> 00:19:23.230
  • No, we don't give anybody salvation,
  • 00:19:23.240 --> 00:19:25.280
  • we help them understand what faith is,
  • 00:19:25.290 --> 00:19:28.120
  • and it's through our witness that they become Christians.
  • 00:19:28.130 --> 00:19:35.040
  • But the gospel's not only shared by faith,
  • 00:19:35.050 --> 00:19:36.290
  • it's received by faith,
  • 00:19:37.000 --> 00:19:38.200
  • for everyone who believes,
  • 00:19:38.210 --> 00:19:41.060
  • and the just shall live by faith.
  • 00:19:41.070 --> 00:19:44.120
  • Earlier, Paul has written that the gospel
  • 00:19:44.130 --> 00:19:46.180
  • is for everyone who believes,
  • 00:19:46.190 --> 00:19:48.080
  • that means you may know about the faith,
  • 00:19:48.090 --> 00:19:50.220
  • you may have seen the faith, you may understand the faith,
  • 00:19:50.230 --> 00:19:52.290
  • but you don't have the faith unless you receive the faith.
  • 00:19:53.000 --> 00:19:57.020
  • You have to reach out and take the gift.
  • 00:19:57.030 --> 00:20:00.140
  • The gospel says that salvation
  • 00:20:00.150 --> 00:20:02.240
  • is a gift of God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • 00:20:02.250 --> 00:20:06.000
  • You may not even really be able to say you have a gift
  • 00:20:06.010 --> 00:20:08.170
  • until you receive it.
  • 00:20:08.180 --> 00:20:10.210
  • Did you get anything for Christmas?
  • 00:20:10.220 --> 00:20:12.030
  • Yes, it's sitting up in the room unwrapped.
  • 00:20:12.040 --> 00:20:15.220
  • You didn't get anything
  • 00:20:15.230 --> 00:20:17.110
  • 'cause it's not your gift until you receive it,
  • 00:20:17.120 --> 00:20:19.240
  • until you accept it, and so it is with the gospel.
  • 00:20:19.250 --> 00:20:23.010
  • If you don't know Jesus Christ,
  • 00:20:23.020 --> 00:20:24.130
  • it's not gonna come through osmosis.
  • 00:20:24.140 --> 00:20:26.180
  • It's not gonna come through coming to church.
  • 00:20:26.190 --> 00:20:28.110
  • You only get Jesus Christ when you understand
  • 00:20:28.120 --> 00:20:31.150
  • that he loves you, he sent his Son to die for you,
  • 00:20:31.160 --> 00:20:34.010
  • and by faith through prayer,
  • 00:20:34.020 --> 00:20:36.070
  • you ask Jesus Christ to be your Savior.
  • 00:20:36.080 --> 00:20:39.290
  • The Bible tells us, "For by grace,
  • 00:20:40.000 --> 00:20:41.260
  • we are saved through faith, and that not of ourselves.
  • 00:20:41.270 --> 00:20:45.220
  • It is a gift of God, not of works,
  • 00:20:45.230 --> 00:20:47.210
  • lest any man should boast."
  • 00:20:47.220 --> 00:20:51.100
  • Ladies and gentlemen,
  • 00:20:51.110 --> 00:20:52.200
  • the reason I want you to hear this story
  • 00:20:52.210 --> 00:20:54.120
  • and hear the heart of your pastor is this,
  • 00:20:54.130 --> 00:20:57.020
  • we basically just have one job to do as a church.
  • 00:20:57.030 --> 00:21:01.040
  • We do a lot of other things that are important;
  • 00:21:01.050 --> 00:21:02.230
  • and if we're not careful, we let all the other things
  • 00:21:02.240 --> 00:21:04.160
  • get in the way of the one thing we're supposed to do
  • 00:21:04.170 --> 00:21:07.140
  • and that's to carry the message of the gospel to the world
  • 00:21:07.150 --> 00:21:10.000
  • and let everybody know
  • 00:21:10.010 --> 00:21:11.100
  • that the just shall live by faith.
  • 00:21:11.110 --> 00:21:13.130
  • And if you'll put your faith in Jesus Christ,
  • 00:21:13.140 --> 00:21:15.260
  • he will change your lives, can I get an amen?
  • 00:21:15.270 --> 00:21:20.070
  • I want to end by telling you a more modern story.
  • 00:21:20.080 --> 00:21:24.240
  • On the morning of September the 11th, 2001,
  • 00:21:24.250 --> 00:21:27.110
  • the Brooklyn Tabernacle lost four of its members.
  • 00:21:27.120 --> 00:21:30.070
  • One victim was a police officer,
  • 00:21:30.080 --> 00:21:32.130
  • and the officer's funeral was held at the church building.
  • 00:21:32.140 --> 00:21:35.240
  • And Rudy Giuliani, then mayor of New York City,
  • 00:21:35.250 --> 00:21:40.010
  • had asked to share a few thoughts.
  • 00:21:40.020 --> 00:21:43.070
  • In his book, "You Were Made For More,"
  • 00:21:43.080 --> 00:21:44.210
  • Jim Cymbala, a pastor of the tabernacle,
  • 00:21:44.220 --> 00:21:46.250
  • records what the mayor shared with the audience that morning.
  • 00:21:46.260 --> 00:21:50.120
  • Listen carefully.
  • 00:21:50.130 --> 00:21:52.240
  • "You know, people," he said,
  • 00:21:52.250 --> 00:21:54.040
  • "I've learned something through all this.
  • 00:21:54.050 --> 00:21:55.210
  • Let me see if I can express it to you.
  • 00:21:55.220 --> 00:21:58.050
  • When everybody was fleeing that building,
  • 00:21:58.060 --> 00:22:00.020
  • and the cops and the firefighters
  • 00:22:00.030 --> 00:22:01.140
  • and the EMS people were heading up into it,
  • 00:22:01.150 --> 00:22:03.170
  • do you think any of them said,
  • 00:22:03.180 --> 00:22:04.270
  • "I wonder how many blacks are up there for us to save.
  • 00:22:04.280 --> 00:22:08.190
  • I wonder what percentage are whites up there.
  • 00:22:08.200 --> 00:22:11.020
  • I wonder how many Jews are up there.
  • 00:22:11.030 --> 00:22:12.220
  • Let's see, I wonder how many people up there
  • 00:22:12.230 --> 00:22:15.060
  • make $400.000, or $24.000, or whatever.
  • 00:22:15.070 --> 00:22:19.270
  • No, when you're saving lives, they're all precious,
  • 00:22:19.280 --> 00:22:22.190
  • and that's how we're supposed to live all the time.
  • 00:22:22.200 --> 00:22:25.060
  • How would you want the cops to treat you
  • 00:22:25.070 --> 00:22:27.060
  • if you were on the 75th floor that day?
  • 00:22:27.070 --> 00:22:29.100
  • Would you want them to say, 'Excuse me,
  • 00:22:29.110 --> 00:22:31.060
  • but I got to get to the bosses and get them out first'?
  • 00:22:31.070 --> 00:22:35.140
  • Not exactly."
  • 00:22:35.150 --> 00:22:37.180
  • Giuliani said, "I haven't always lived this way,
  • 00:22:37.190 --> 00:22:40.090
  • but I'm convinced that God wants us to do it.
  • 00:22:40.100 --> 00:22:43.030
  • He wants us to value every human life
  • 00:22:43.040 --> 00:22:45.150
  • the way he values us."
  • 00:22:45.160 --> 00:22:48.090
  • Jim Cymbala said, "I sat there thinking,
  • 00:22:48.100 --> 00:22:50.170
  • my goodness, the mayor is preaching the gospel,
  • 00:22:50.180 --> 00:22:54.220
  • and it's a gospel that seems to have eluded
  • 00:22:54.230 --> 00:22:56.160
  • so many of our churches
  • 00:22:56.170 --> 00:22:57.260
  • throughout New York and this country.
  • 00:22:57.270 --> 00:22:59.170
  • The world you and I live in
  • 00:22:59.180 --> 00:23:01.070
  • is falling apart before our eyes, and we are
  • 00:23:01.080 --> 00:23:03.240
  • God's only representatives on the planet,
  • 00:23:03.250 --> 00:23:06.160
  • and simply cannot take time
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:08.070
  • to pick and choose who needs our help.
  • 00:23:08.080 --> 00:23:11.010
  • They all need help.
  • 00:23:11.020 --> 00:23:12.110
  • They all need the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:23:12.120 --> 00:23:15.040
  • They all need to be rescued
  • 00:23:15.050 --> 00:23:16.160
  • from the horror of an eternity apart from God."
  • 00:23:16.170 --> 00:23:19.100
  • And gentlemen and ladies,
  • 00:23:19.110 --> 00:23:21.020
  • that's what God has called us to do as a church,
  • 00:23:21.030 --> 00:23:24.130
  • and we need to be very serious about the calling
  • 00:23:24.140 --> 00:23:27.160
  • that God has placed upon us for the gospel.
  • 00:23:27.170 --> 00:23:31.170
  • For I'm not ashamed of the gospel,
  • 00:23:31.180 --> 00:23:34.100
  • for it is the power of God unto salvation.
  • 00:23:34.110 --> 00:23:38.090
  • I hope you will join your pastor
  • 00:23:38.100 --> 00:23:41.150
  • with a new and greater understanding,
  • 00:23:41.160 --> 00:23:46.000
  • not only the responsibility, but the privilege we have
  • 00:23:46.010 --> 00:23:50.220
  • to preach this gospel and share this gospel.
  • 00:23:50.230 --> 00:23:52.060
  • And don't think
  • 00:23:52.070 --> 00:23:53.160
  • because you're not a preacher or teacher,
  • 00:23:53.170 --> 00:23:54.260
  • that doesn't involve you.
  • 00:23:54.270 --> 00:23:56.060
  • Listen to me, everything you do that advances the ministry,
  • 00:23:56.070 --> 00:23:59.250
  • whether it's with children or young people or anybody else,
  • 00:23:59.260 --> 00:24:02.060
  • is helping us get the gospel forward.
  • 00:24:02.070 --> 00:24:05.040
  • Don't diminish the importance of your job.
  • 00:24:05.050 --> 00:24:07.160
  • And don't say, "I'm not a preacher so--"
  • 00:24:07.170 --> 00:24:09.220
  • Or don't say, "I haven't been asked to teach, or--"
  • 00:24:09.230 --> 00:24:11.240
  • No, do what God has called you to do where you are
  • 00:24:11.250 --> 00:24:14.060
  • and trust God.
  • 00:24:14.070 --> 00:24:15.160
  • Don't worry so much about the promotion,
  • 00:24:15.170 --> 00:24:17.160
  • worry about yourself,
  • 00:24:17.170 --> 00:24:18.260
  • worry about what God has called you to do,
  • 00:24:18.270 --> 00:24:20.180
  • and then go do it with all your heart,
  • 00:24:20.190 --> 00:24:23.060
  • and the gospel of Jesus Christ
  • 00:24:23.070 --> 00:24:24.160

  • the gospel of Jesus Christ offers the good news

  • about the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ
  • 00:25:45.040 --> 00:25:50.040
  • and the promise of eternal life for those who believe on him.
  • 00:25:50.050 --> 00:25:55.210
  • We not only have our future assured,
  • 00:25:55.220 --> 00:25:58.280
