Recognizing and witnessing the gospel online version

  1. 1. WHAT IS THE GOSPEL • CERTAIN PEOPLE CAME DOWN FROM JUDEA TO ANTIOCH AND WERE TEACHING THE BELIEVERS: “UNLESS YOU ARE CIRCUMCISED, ACCORDING TO THE CUSTOM TAUGHT BY MOSES, YOU CANNOT BE SAVED.” 2 THIS BROUGHT PAUL AND BARNABAS INTO SHARP DISPUTE AND DEBATE WITH THEM. SO PAUL AND BARNABAS WERE APPOINTED, ALONG WITH SOME OTHER BELIEVERS, TO GO UP TO JERUSALEM TO SEE THE APOSTLES AND ELDERS ABOUT THIS QUESTION. 3 THE CHURCH SENT THEM ON THEIR WAY, AND AS THEY TRAVELED THROUGH PHOENICIA AND SAMARIA, THEY TOLD HOW THE GENTILES HAD BEEN CONVERTED. THIS NEWS MADE ALL THE BELIEVERS VERY GLAD. 4 WHEN THEY CAME TO JERUSALEM, THEY WERE WELCOMED BY THE CHURCH AND THE APOSTLES AND ELDERS, TO WHOM THEY REPORTED EVERYTHING GOD HAD DONE THROUGH THEM. • 5 THEN SOME OF THE BELIEVERS WHO BELONGED TO THE PARTY OF THE PHARISEES STOOD UP AND SAID, “THE GENTILES MUST BE CIRCUMCISEDAND REQUIRED TO KEEP THE LAW OF MOSES.” • 6 THE APOSTLES AND ELDERS MET TO CONSIDER THIS QUESTION. – ACTS 15:1-6
  2. 2. THE GOSPEL IS NOT…. • “UNLESS YOU ARE ________, ACCORDING TO THE CUSTOM TAUGHT BY _______, YOU CANNOT BE SAVED.”
  3. 3. ACTS 15:6-11 • 6 THE APOSTLES AND ELDERS MET TO CONSIDER THIS QUESTION. 7 AFTER MUCH DISCUSSION, PETER GOT UP AND ADDRESSED THEM: “BROTHERS, YOU KNOW THAT SOME TIME AGO GOD MADE A CHOICE AMONG YOU THAT THE GENTILES MIGHT HEAR FROM MY LIPS THE MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL AND BELIEVE. 8 GOD, WHO KNOWS THE HEART, SHOWED THAT HE ACCEPTED THEM BY GIVING THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THEM, JUST AS HE DID TO US. 9 HE DID NOT DISCRIMINATE BETWEEN US AND THEM, FOR HE PURIFIED THEIR HEARTS BY FAITH. 10 NOW THEN, WHY DO YOU TRY TO TEST GOD BY PUTTING ON THE NECKS OF GENTILES A YOKE THAT NEITHER WE NOR OUR ANCESTORS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BEAR? 11 NO! WE BELIEVE IT IS THROUGH THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS THAT WE ARE SAVED, JUST AS THEY ARE.”
  4. 4. DING DING DING • 23 BUT HE CONTINUED, “YOU ARE FROM BELOW; I AM FROM ABOVE. YOU ARE OF THIS WORLD; I AM NOT OF THIS WORLD. 24 I TOLD YOU THAT YOU WOULD DIE IN YOUR SINS; IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE THAT I AM HE, YOU WILL INDEED DIE IN YOUR SINS.” – JOHN 8:23-24
  5. 5. 33 GREEK WORDS • 20 I HAVE BEEN CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST AND I NO LONGER LIVE, BUT CHRIST LIVES IN ME. THE LIFE I NOW LIVE IN THE BODY, I LIVE BY FAITH IN THE SON OF GOD, WHO LOVED ME AND GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME. – GALATIANS 2:20
  6. 6. FAITH AND SIGHT • 6 THEREFORE WE ARE ALWAYS CONFIDENT AND KNOW THAT AS LONG AS WE ARE AT HOME IN THE BODY WE ARE AWAY FROM THE LORD. 7 FOR WE LIVE BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT. 2 CORINTHIANS 5:6,7
  7. 7. ALL THE HEARTS ARE ACTUALLY THE SAME COLOR.
