Text: 1 Timothy 2:5
Main Idea: Sinners are declared righteous before God on the basis of Christ alone.
- We still stand on "Christ Alone" because Jesus' identity is exclusive. (John 1:1-5, 14; Heb. 2:14, 17; Philippians 2:6-8)
- Jesus is the focus of the Scriptures (Luke 24:27)
- Jesus is the gift of grace (Titus 2:11)
- Jesus is the object of faith (Heb. 1:3; Col. 1:15-20)
- Jesus is the fullness of God's glory (Heb. 1:3; Col. 1:19)
- We still stand on "Christ Alone" because Jesus' work alone is sufficient for salvation. (Eph. 2:13-16; Rom. 5:6-11, 15-17)
- We still stand on "Christ Alone" because of the confusion that surrounds us today. (Col. 2:8; Rom. 1:16; 1 Cor. 2:1-5; Mat. 16: 15-17; Rom. 1:18-25; Heb. 11:1-3, 6; John 6:44; 1 Cor. 2:10-14)
- As we continue to stand on "Christ Alone" as the exclusive, all-sufficient Savior, we point the world to true hope and joy, and remind ourselves of it. (John 15:11)
Discussion Questions: Think deeply about the implications of the one holy God becoming the one perfect Man in Jesus to live a righteous life and die a sacrificial death for you. How do you desire to respond to such good news? Why is absolutely anything that takes the focus off Christ alone and His finished work deadly and dangerous? Who could you share this Good News with this week?
