On February 3rd the sermon covered the doctrine of justification, The Sweet Exchange. This was the first of a mini series within a series discussing the order of salvation, but starting in the middle with the heart and soul, or ground, of salvation, justification. The broader series is called The Fullness of Salvation.
In justification, God counts our sin as Christ’s, and poured out His wrath for sin on Jesus in our place. In return, because of God’s grace, and received by faith alone, Christ’s perfect obedience, His righteousness, is counted as ours. We stand justified before God, acceptable in His sight.
On February 10th the sermon discussed other Happy Changes that the Bible talks about, or to put it another way, other metaphors describing trades that God makes for us in Christ Jesus.
May God’s Word be a blessing to you!
