The Accomplishment of Christ’s Decease

As Moses and Elias confirm from their conversation with Christ on the Mount of Transfiguration, the death of Jesus Christ “accomplished” its intended purpose. Jesus did not come trying to save sinners, and he was foiled in his effort of salvation. No, but rather Jesus fully accomplished his intended purpose and saved all his people from their sins.

A King Like No Other, Part 2

Jesus is the only King of kings and Lord of lords. However, Christ’s kingdom is not of this world, running directly contrary to the normal order of kingdom’s in this world. Jesus did not cater to the societal elite; he did not build great armies and weapons; he did not rule as a despot, but the Son of God instead became a servant, setting the example for us to live contrary to this world as well.

Sacrifice of Thanksgiving

What can we possibly offer back to such a great and majestic God like ours for all his benefits in our lives and saving our eternal souls from damnation? One of the most simplistic offerings we can make back to God is the “sacrifice of thanksgiving”. Every child of God has been appointed to a holy priesthood and the most important function of your role as priest is to offer sacrifices to God. God has given us a body to offer back to him as a living sacrifice and one of the most simple but still yet prominent sacrifices are simply saying “Thank you” to the Lord, to offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving unto our God.

The Suffering Servant

Jesus put aside his divinity to come into this world to save a people. However, we see from Isaiah 53’s depiction of this lot, this people is not a good people worthy of God’s favor, but rather a rebellious and disobedient people. In spite of the elect’s pitiful state, Jesus was willing to sacrifice himself to save his people from their sins.

Hard Sayings & The Words of Eternal Life

In summary of Jesus’ preaching in John 6, we see two distinct reactions to Jesus’ message of the sovereignty of God in salvation. Some people were offended by the doctrines of grace as some disciples walked away from Christ. However, in contrast, the apostles viewed the doctrines of grace and Jesus extolling of God’s sovereignty of salvation as the words of eternal life and Christ as the only source of that beautiful message of the gospel.

A King Like No Other

Jesus Christ’s kingdom is truly not of this world, running fully contrary to the customs of the kingdoms of this world.

The Flesh and Blood of Christ

Christ’s admonition of the necessity of partaking of his flesh and drinking of his blood have led to some very eccentric interpretations of these verses in John 6:53-59. This morning we try to consider the proper interpretation of these verses – simply another admonition by Christ to believe on him as God manifest in the flesh and believe in his blood as the only atonement for your sins. Let us profess that belief of Christ today.

Jesus Never Needed Your Consent

Even though man’s innate pride thinks that we must give our consent to be saved, scripture contrarily teaches that we are saved and represented by Christ apart from our consent. This morning we look at the doctrine of federal headship and the many examples around us and also in scripture where we were represented by others, apart from our consent.

Drawing Power of God

During Jesus’ sermon in John 6, he continually circles back to his people “coming” unto him. What is this “coming” that Jesus is referring to? Like any good preacher (with Christ being the great preacher), he clearly defines his terms that God causes the sinner to “come to him” by sovereignly drawing the passive child to him in the new birth; not the dead sinner choosing to come unto him because as Jesus clearly states, that is impossible – “No man can come unto me”. However, God made a divine exception in salvation to draw his children unto him. It’s after that sovereign, monergistic drawing by God that one can manifest the evidence of eternal life and believe on the name of Christ.

The Work of God

In Jesus discourse in John 6, there are some Jews who were seeking to labor for God, but they were wanting to labor for more good food. Instead, Jesus tells them the ultimate work they could perform unto God was to believe in his name. Jesus settled once and for all the debate over is belief a work. Jesus declared that belief is a work and thus cannot be an ingredient of our salvation, since salvation is totally by grace and not of any works on our part.

While nothing can separate a child of God from his eternal home in heaven, there are some who falsely teach that the child of God is invinceable, and not subject to fall or fail here in this world.

The People and the Work Given to Christ

Scripture consistently affirms that there was a distinct, definite group given unto Christ to save. This group of people were the elect, that God chose to love and save, and that group was given unto Christ who made a covenant to save them. Jesus declared on the cross that he had finished the work given unto him, so he perfectly saved all the people that were given unto him.

This world is wicked, polluted, and it vexes the righteous soul of the children of God day-by-day. However, there is a salvation and deliverance for God’s children when they take heed to the Apostle Peter’s admonition to save themselves from this untoward generation.

Sonship and the New Birth

The scriptures make it abundantly clear that God’s relationship to us as our adoptive Father predates our knowledge of that fact. Man does not cry out to God in order to get born again, get life, and become a son of God. Instead, our outward cry in belief (which is predated by the new birth in their heart) is the effect – not the cause – of our sonship that God has initiated and procured by adopting us into his family.

Confession of Whose Sins? (1 John 1:9)

In a misguided attempt to implore the sinner to confess his sins and get saved for eternity, 1 John 1:9 is unfortunately often presented as an invitation to salvation to the cooperative sinner. However, we see from the audience that John was actually addressing that they were already forgiven of their sins, already of God, and clearly already saved. Rather than trying to save them to eternal life, instead John is giving assurance to the saved children of God who fail the Lord that God is loving to forgive them each and every time we falter when we honestly confess our sins before the Lord.

The Bible is the only true source of truth in this world. Many try to undermine not only the divine inspiration but also the divine preservation of the scriptures by saying it’s incompatible with science.

While the emphasis in modern Christianity is placed on your initiating a relationship with the Lord, instead the more appropriate question is God’s relationship with you.
