Classic Christianity – Law & Thanksgiving Message Part 3 (11-25-22)
Become Dead to the Law and Alive to Christ
~ “Let’s pray together. Father, you’ve told us to give thanks in all sayings. For this truly is the will of God concerning you in Christ Jesus. To thank Him in all things to be anxious for nothing but in all things with prayer and supplication and thanksgiving, let your requests be known under God. And then the peace of God that passes all understanding will quieten your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. So many times we have that tendency to worry, in fact, we feel guilty if we’re not worrying. God says worry is not faith. Worry about your kids. That’s rightfully so we have a role to protect them. And then a final analysis, we have to turn them over to the Lord. They’re his, not mine. I’m given them a short period of time to try to teach them and discipline them. But in the final analysis, they belong to you. And it’s the same with all people. Maybe that’s why you said in your word to lead a quiet life and tend to your own … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Are You Playing Religion Under Law? Or Are You Living in Christ Jesus Under Grace?
~ “There’s no spiritual life over here. I mean, you can play church, don’t get me wrong. You can play church, you can dress up and go to church every Sunday. You can you can give tithes offerings. You can play religion. In fact, that’s what Satan gets you to do. Satan says, I sure the heck I’m not gonna teach you that you’re dead and there’s spiritual life available to you. So I’ll teach you how to be religious. Teach how to go to church, teach how to dress up and look good. Teach you how to lie spiritually. I can teach you how to evangelize, I can teach you anything. You can be taught anything, but you’re dead. It’s not the case of how bad you are, or how good you are. It’s how dead you are. It’s all through the script, the wages of sin is what? death. Sin shall not be your master, which means when you’re under the last sin as your master, he’s your owner. You’re just like a … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Law & Thanksgiving Message Part 1 (11-23-22)
Are You Living in Law Land or Are You Living in Grace Land?
~ “All who sin apart from the law, and I just circled the law will also perish apart from the law. And all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. Indeed, when Gentiles who do not have the law, do by nature, the things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. Since they show the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing them and even defending them. So he’s talking about the law.”

Give Thanks, Your Sins Have Been Forgiven
As the Thanksgiving season is here, consider how much we have been freely given. If you are in Christ, you are free. You are free from the law. You are no longer under the law of sin and death, the law with it’s demands that you could never keep. Sin was your master and owner. In Christ, you are no longer a prisoner of the law. You were once locked up until faith should be revealed. Has faith been revealed to you? Can you now call God your Father because you have become a child of God, a new creation in Christ?
Even before the law was given, sin was in the world. All of us were born dead spiritually. The law was powerless to save you nor could it. We were already weak in our natural selves, being dead already. We keep doing what we know we ought not do and we do not do what we know we should. And when we fail, there is guilt under the law. Then why was the law given? The law was added so that man may see … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Give Thanks to God Through Jesus in Everything We Do
Turn to Romans and read along as Bob explains its meaning. The book of Romans is a book of contrast between law and grace. The purpose of the law is for man to recognize his sinfulness, his condition of spiritual death, that he might seek a Savior in Jesus Christ. There is so much that the apostle Paul explains concerning the law; its purpose, it’s inability to make one righteous before God, it’s ministry of death to make man realize his sinful state. The law is like a mirror. A mirror can show dirt on the face but it has no power to remove the dirt. So too is the law to show man he is a sinner but there is no power in the law to make anyone righteous before God.
The law demands perfect obedience, which no man in his weakened sinful state could ever completely obey. As James said, if a man obeyed all of the law but failed at just one point, then he is guilty of breaking all of the law. A law without a penalty is no … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
