June 2, 2023 – Is Jesus Real to You?
Sermon: 2166 The Gospel of Grace, Part 2
Pray Over This
“Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father.”
God will not save apart from the Gospel of Jesus Christ because He is a holy God and sin must be atoned or paid for. But Jesus bought us with His own precious blood. He obtained our salvation with His rich, red, royal blood! It is the Gospel of the cross. It is the Gospel of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s the Gospel that centers on Christ, not a gospel that simply mentions Christ or alludes to Christ. It is the Gospel of Christ.
Do you know why so many churches today are filled with people who’ve never been born again? They have never had a personal faith encounter with Jesus Christ. They’ve met a creed, but not Christ; they’ve met a cause, but not Christ; they’ve met a code, but not Christ; they’ve met a church, but not Christ.
Do you know Jesus Christ? I want to tell you today that Jesus Christ is real to me. I put my faith in Jesus Christ. This faith is more than something that brings Christ in, it centers on Him. It doesn’t simply mention Him or give lip service to Him; it is all about Him.
