Faithful Friday #7/The Gospel Threads

Have you heard of the gospel threads? If not, I recommend you check these sermons out from my Pastor, David Platt. We went through this series in 2008, but are revisiting it now. 

To break it down, we want to threads these 5 truths into our everyday lives and conversations when sharing about Christ. Take some time to listen to this series. I urge you to prayerfully ask for God how you can weave threads of the gospel into your interactions with people. 

Plan out how you might intentionally all these with fellow men and women. 

The Gospel Threads

1. The Character of God
God is the Holy, Just and Gracious Creator of all things.
He is holy. (Isiah 43:15)
He is just. (Proverbs 17:15)
He is gracious (Titus 2:11)

2. The Sinfulness of Man
We are each created by God, but we are all corrupted by sin.
We have rebelled against God (Romans 3:12)
We are separated from God. (Romans 3:23)
We are dead without God. (Romans 6:23)

3. The Sufficiency of Christ
Jesus ALONE is able to remove our sin and restore us to God.
He lived the life we could not live. (1 John 3:5)
He died the death we deserve to die. (1 Peter 2:24)
He conquered the enemy we cannot conquer. (Revelation 1:18)

4. The Necessity of Faith
We can be restored to God ONLY through faith in Jesus Christ. 
We can turn from our sin and ourselves. (Mark 1:15)
We trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord. (Romans 10:9)

5. The Urgency of Eternity
Our eternal destiny hinges on our response to Jesus
Hell is a dreadful reality for those who turn from Jesus. (2 Thess 1:8-9)
Heaven is a glorious reality for those who trust in Jesus. (Philippians 3:20)
Will you turn from Jesus or will you trust in Jesus? (John 3:16)

Please my friends, think over these all. If you ever want to chat,  I would love to do so with you. I'm always available for you.
