6. WHAT JESUS’ WORK HAS DONE
Our Deadness comes with a penalty
· Paul is clear in verse 14 that EVERY ONE of us has a charge filed against us.
· Sallie Mae Illustration
o All of us are bankrupt… We literally are DEAD
o NO amount of good works, of knowledge, of reason, of empathy, no good things, no spiritual conversations, NOTHING we do can discharge this debt.
Just as verse 10 tells us that JESUS has brought us to fullness. JESUS had to bring us from death to life.
· ONLY the work of the GOD MAN can have saving power for a doomed race.
· Jesus’ work CANCELLED the debt that we could not even ponder to repay.
*Notice with me today when Paul says your debt was cancelled*
· ON. THE. CROSS.
o Past, Present, and FUTURE sins have been ERASED
Jesus, the spotless lamb, God in Flesh is:
· The creator of all things
· The RULER of all things
· The SAVIOR of all who believe
