GOSPEL DNA 5: the righteous will live by faith
Faith/Spirit versus Flesh/Law
Living by human effort and rules is useless.
1) We are by someone. 1
NIV Matthew 23:15 "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are.
2) We the cross. 1
NIV Luke 22:19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me."
3) We harder. 3
NIV Romans 4:5 However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.
4) We powerful acts of the Spirit. 5
NIV 1 Thessalonians 1:5 because our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake.
The Christian life, from beginning to end,
is to be lived by in the Gospel. 3
But we must not forget…
NIV Galatians 5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
