It is Finished – Lesson 18

Jesus’s final week began with his triumphant march into Jerusalem, hailed by the people as their King. Things quickly changed. Later that week, Judas betrayed Jesus to the religious leaders, who arrested him in the Garden of Gethsemane. The high priest and elders interrogated Jesus, mocked him, and beat him through the night, hoping to find evidence to condemn him to death. All of these incidents were part of God’s plan. Pilate’s act of handing Jesus over to be crucified brought about the exact outcome that had to happen to carry out the plan and will of God … on our behalf. Jesus’ sacrifice is summed up in three words – “it is finished”. That’s good news for you and me! (Chapter 6, page 43)

We Belong to Another

The Bible talks about this great rescue of Christ bringing us into this new life. In Romans 7 we read: “Do you not know, brothers and sisters–for I am speaking to those who know the law–that the law has authority over someone only as long as that person lives?” “So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.” * Join us in Israel
* William asks about pastors who lie to their congregation.

Free to Live by the Spirit

We’ve been freed from slavery to sin to be slaves of Jesus. But what does that mean to us. Galatians 5:22, 23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” * Stephanie wants to know if modern day prophets exist.
* Are there two Gospels? One for the Jews and one for the Gentiles. * Timothy asks “as a child of the New Covenant, is tithing required?”

Freedom To…

Today we want to look at what we’re freed to do. What is true freedom. “But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:22, 23 Jesus saved you from the slavery of sin to be free to be a slave of Jesus. We have one choice: to be a slave to sin or a slave to Jesus Christ. * Jerome asks about grieving the Holy Spirit.
* Please explain Luke 16:1-14 – focus on verses 8 and 9. “… I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.”

Freedom From…

“What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? … ” Romans 6. We’ve been freed from sin and liberated from the sin that held us captive. We are no longer slaves to sin. Not only did you die to sin, but you died to the law.
* If God is omniscient, knowing that Satan would be evil, why are people accountable for their sin? * Join us in Israel.

It is Finished – Lesson 17

Do you know that God has forgiven your sins? Confusion on this most fundamental truth hampers every other aspect of the Christian life. The Gospel proclaims that our sins – past, present and future ­- have been forgiven through the finished work of Jesus Christ. Questions about forgiveness are answered in his death, burial and resurrection. That is hope for the hopeless and the refreshment our souls need. If you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ and experience his love, the cross is the place to start. That all important question, “Will God forgive my sin?” is answered in three powerful words – “It is finished”. (Chapter 6, page 41)

Free in Christ

What does it mean to you to be free in Christ Jesus? “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Every freedom we have is derived from the freedom found only in Christ. * Were the Gospels written anonymously?
* Aaron shares what it means to be free in Christ.
