Chestnut Ridge Church
Clear as Mud—Part 2
The gospel can be confusing. What exactly should be included in the presentation of it? What does God require of us to receive forgiveness of our sins? How do we receive the gift of eternal life? Our new series, Clear as Mud, will answer these questions and more. No message is more important than the gospel—so, let’s clear it up.

Though her statements were true, the gospel of Christ would be damaged by an association with a demon-possessed slave girl. 1 - Toussaint
It had no window or outlet except this door, which, when closed, absolutely shut out light and air. [It was a place of] utter darkness, heat, and stench.” [The stocks were] an instrument of torture having five holes, four for the wrists and ankles and one for the neck. 2 – Rev. John Newman, Calllista, quoted by M.R. Vincent
All that is needed for justification is faith in the Lord Jesus. The jailer had asked what he should do. The answer was that he need perform no works; he only needed to believe in Jesus who is the Lord.3 - Walvoord
It’s not about what we do for God; it’s about what he did for us.
It’s not about what we do for God; it’s about what he did for us.
Quiz: How do we get "right" with God?
Correct answer: G. None of the above
It’s faith alone, in Christ alone. God paid a huge price to provides us with salvation as a gift.

It’s not about what we do for God; it’s about what he did for us.
