Notes from today (3/5/2017):
Reasons for our faith:
God hasn't changed.
We are who we are.
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
Humanity got first exposure to perfection -- human perfection (Jesus is 100% Human, 100% God) in Christ.
Jesus came to be our Sacrifice.
Problem of OT sacrifices -- constant blood shed for sin.
They were like paying interest on the principal that could never be touched with an animal sacrifice (or any sacrifice apart from Christ).
He sacrificed His Son.
He paid the debt for us.
Jesus came as a mediator. Hebrews 4.
Jesus came to fulfill the Law.
He is the Bridge to God.
Psalm 19:7 -- The Law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul
With maturity comes better eyesight (spiritual eyesight)
I've gotta go so the Helper can come (John 16).
Understand what a gift the Spirit is!
God says, "Come to Me now."
You can be free from sin.
It's not a one time event. It's a lifetime event.
