God's great exchange slides

  1. 1. GOD’S GREATEXCHANGEHOW GOD GAVE YOU A SAVIOR
  2. 2. Intro:Our greatest need is to be in a rightrelationship with God. Are you? 1) If you were to die tonight, are you sure you would have eternal life? 2) If you were to die tonight and stand before God, and He were to ask you, “Why should I let you into My heaven?” what would you tell Him?
  3. 3. WHAT GOD DEMANDS1. There are 2 things that must happen for a person to be in a right relationship with God:a. You must have holiness. 1) Leviticus 19:2 – “Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.” 2) Galatians 3:10 – “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”
  4. 4. WHAT GOD DEMANDS1. There are 2 things that must happen for a person to be in a right relationship with God:b. You must have no sins. 1) Isaiah 59:2 – “Your iniquities have separated you from your God.” 2) Romans 6:23a – “The wages of sin is death.”
  5. 5. WHAT GOD DEMANDS + holiness - sins = life
  6. 6. WHAT GOD SEES2. God demands that He see no sin, that He see only holiness. But what does He see?a. Looking at us, He sees people who lack holiness. Isaiah 64:6 – “We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags.”b. He sees sinners. Romans 3:23 – “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”c. He sees people who are deserving of death, not life.
  7. 7. WHAT GOD SEES - holiness + sins = death
  8. 8. MAN-MADE REMEDIES3. What can we do about this? a. You might think, “Guess I’ll have to try harder,” but that won’t remove sin or make you perfectly holy, will it?
  9. 9. MAN-MADE REMEDIES3. What can we do about this? b. Or you might determine to make up for every sin with a good deed. But that doesn’t remove sin.
  10. 10. MAN-MADE REMEDIES3. What can we do about this? c. Or you might think, “I’m not perfect; but at least I’m better than many others”. But God expects you to compare yourself to Him and His perfect holiness, not to other people.
  11. 11. MAN-MADE REMEDIES3. What can we do about this? d. All such self-help efforts are doomed to fail.Try Harder Balancing Act Comparison
  12. 12. GOD’S REMEDY4. ONLY God has the remedy. His remedymight be called GOD’S GREAT EXCHANGE.a. He sent His only Son into the world to become one of us.b. His Son lived a perfectly holy life – in our place.c. His Son died on a cross, paying the wages of sin in our place; for “the Lord laid on Him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6).
  13. 13. GOD’S REMEDY4. ONLY God has the remedy. His remedy might becalled GOD’S GREAT EXCHANGE.d. God has credited the perfect life of Jesus and His death for sin to our account: 2 Corinthians 5:21 – “God made Him who had no sin to be, sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”e. His son rose from the grave, guaranteeing our redemption: Romans 4:25 – “He was raised to life for our justification.”f. The result: we have the holiness (Jesus’ holiness) and the removal of sin we need for life. What God requires of us – holiness and sinlessness – God gives to us.
  14. 14. GOD’S REMEDY+ holiness + holiness my sins- sin - sin Jesus’ holiness= LIFE = LIFE GOD’S GREAT EXCHANGE
