The Old Testament sacrifices were a type and shadow of Jesus and His atoning work on our behalf. In addition, the true meaning of Rom. 4:25 is also brought out in this sermon revealing the very place in time in which we were all justified in God's eyes!
The Gospel of Grace
There is no more important message than the message of grace. The truth of grace is the foundation on which all other truth is built. Unfortunately very few children of God have a solid foundation in grace. This message is a SUMMARY MESSAGE on grace that Pastor Brad Ettore gave at Christian Fellowship Church. Worth a review for all of us!
“But now, the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed...even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe.” (Romans 3:21-22 ) When Adam sinned, it was by one man’s disobedience that sin entered the world, and death through sin. So, just as through one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.” (Rom 5:19) What a powerful truth! Our righteousness is based upon the obedience of another – Jesus! The righteousness we stand in is based on the work of ONE! And His work is done! There is ONE Man who made me right with God! Not me! It is solely based on the finished work of Christ! This is why Paul instructs us to "take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." (2 Cor. 10:5)
