Sabbath school lesson 6, 4th quarter of 2017

  1. 1. Lesson 6 for November 11, 2017 www.gmahktanjungpinang.org Romans 3:31 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”
  2. 2. 1. Justification by faith. Romans 5:1-5. 2. God’s love for sinners. Romans 5:6-11. 3. Sin comes to Earth. Romans 5:12. 4. The law and sin. Romans 5:13-14, 20-21. 5. Adam’s transgression and God’s gift. Romans 5:15-19. In Romans chapter 5, Paul explains the greatest problem of mankind— sin—and its solution. • How was sin introduced to the Earth? • What solution did God provide? Why did He do so?
  3. 3. JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Romans 5:1-2) What does “having been justified” mean? We have been declared justified. That is, sinless, men and women whose lives resound in harmony with the Law of God. How have we been justified? We’ve been justified by our faith in Jesus, not because any good work we might’ve done. What is the legal procedure behind that? Jesus paid the penalty of our sins by dying on the cross. His perfect life is substituted for our life of sin. We are justified because He is just.
  4. 4. JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Romans 5:1-2) According to verses 3-5, how can we rejoice in hope? Tribulations generate patience • Believers remain faithful amid suffering. Hope is never lost. Patience generates trials • When patiently going through tribulations, we develop a Christlike character. Trials generate hope • The Spirit grows the patience in us so we may have a Christlike character. That way we are encouraged in the hope of the salvation Jesus gives us.
  5. 5. GOD’S LOVE FOR SINNERS “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) How does God show us His love? He made the first move to reconciliation. He died for use when we were still sinners. Romans 5:6-8 He hates sin and He will destroy it forever. Nevertheless, He offers a way out so we are not destroyed for our sins. Romans 5:9 Jesus reconciled us with God in His death and resurrection. We are saved because He lives. Romans 5:10-11
  6. 6. SIN COMES TO EARTH “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.” (Romans 5:12 NIV) God created mankind so we could be happy in His presence forever. That was enough proof of God’s love before sin brought death to mankind. Adam represented humanity. His fall made the plan of redemption necessary. God had already prepared that plan as the solution for our possible fall. Death is the consequence of sin in humanity. We can’t do anything to solve this issue because we all have sinned (Romans 3:23).
  7. 7. THE LAW AND SIN “Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 5:20-21) Before the law Romans 5:13-14 After the law Romans 5:20 From Adam to Moses There was sin, so there was Law— although it was not in written form. From Moses to the end of sin People had a greater understanding of what sin is. Therefore, sin abounded. By Jesus Christ Romans 5:21 Grace abounded much more. SIN REIGNED GRACE REIGNS The law of God is eternal. Sin is breaking His law. God explained His Law in detail on Sinai so we could be aware of our sins. That way we would embrace the grace that could free us from our condemnation; that is, Jesus the Messiah.
  8. 8. ADAM’S TRANSGRESSION AND GOD’S GIFT “But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.” (Romans 5:15 NIV) TRANSGRESSION Many died (v. 15) The condemnation judgment (v. 16) Death reigned (v. 17) Condemnation came (v. 18) Many were made sinners (v. 19) THE GIFT Grace abounded (v. 15) Came in justification (v. 16) We’ll reign in life (v. 17) Justification of life came (v. 18) Many will be made righteous (v. 19) As humans, we received nothing from Adam but the sentence of death. Christ, however, stepped in and passed over the ground where Adam fell, enduring every test in behalf of humans. He redeemed Adam’s disgraceful failure and fall, and, thus, as our Substitute, He placed us on vantage ground with God. Hence, Jesus is the “Gift from God.” Justification cannot be earned. It’s a gift!
