Back to Basics, 6-What Is The Gospel? Joshua Justice 21 February 2016
artist: Joshua Justice title: What Is The Gospel? album: Back to Basics year: 2016 genre: Sermon (id None) track: 6 "When we forget where we come from, we lose where we are headed." Deacon Joshua's final sermon in his "Back to Basics" series ties together the various facets of the foundations of the Christian faith. He explains how these facets become like steps along a road that moves us from unbelief and emptiness, even despair, to hope and life and an expectation of peace and joy for eternity. These faith tenets are simple, understandable, and absolutely essential to understand if you call yourself a Christian ~ man's sin-prone nature, the clear defining of sin through the Law, the mercy and holiness of God, God's infinite grace, the ability to know the next right step and how to access the power to take it, and the gift of eternal life because our debt has been paid and we have been purchased from the slavery of eternal death. Yes, the Law is important for us to know the heart and mind of God, and now can be written on our hearts. when we walk in the Spirit, we show our love of God by doing the things that He would do, and loving the things that He would love...but it is not hard, nor complex, although some would make it so--these principles show the simple steps of obedience and belief that make up the Christian faith.
