More Than Conquerors in the Darkest of Times, Part 3: Victory in Context 2

[Series: More Than Conquerors in the Darkest of Times] Every single believer is already “more than a conqueror through Him who loved us” — even in the darkest of times. Unfortunately, many believers don’t understand the incredible truths of God’s Love, and the incredible things that God has done for them and to them. So, they are caught up with the world’s fear, just like anyone else.

In this episode, we’ll continue looking a the context of such love that has made us more than conquerors looking at Romans chapters 4 and 5:

  • We have no need to fear, because God’s Perfect Love casts out fear.
  • We receive all the benefits of the Grace of God and what Christ has already accomplished for us by faith.
  • God’s Grace is accomplished through Jesus’ work in the past, justifying and reconciling us, gives us admission into the full benefits of God’s grace right now and gives us a real, rejoicing hope for our future.
  • The reality that there are only two races of humans on the planet: those in first Adam, who brought sin, death and condemnation to all and those in the Last Adam, the Lord Jesus Christ, who receive the gift of righteousness, peace and abundance of grace to reign as kings in this life.

Blessed #12 Blessed of God (Part 5)

Blessed Beyond Imagination series, part 12. In the Bible we read that God “justifies the ungodly“. How can that be? Today, we examine what He does this, looking at what the Bible says about:

  • All of us don’t deserve to be blessed, because of our sin, idolatry and rebellion against God. In fact, we deserve damnation and judgment.
  • There is only One — The Lord Jesus — who has the right to judge and condemn us. Yet He is in fact interceding for us.
  • Even though we don’t deserve to be blessed, every single person who is in Christ is richly blessed, because they have received the gift of Christ’s righteousness by faith.
  • What it means to be justified.
