Hope in the Face of Righteous Judgment

JeremiahThis message by Pastor Rod Harris was delivered at Trinity Baptist Church on Sunday evening, January 13, 2008, and was taken from Jeremiah 11:1-17, and Galatians 3:13. [Editor’s note: Our apologies for the numerous recording flaws found herein. We are fairly sure the problem was due to a lapel microphone problem that has since been corrected.]

If your contract begins with the word “curse” (2:00) you may be in trouble.
A study of the grace of God in salvation from the above texts:

  1. God rightly demands total, absolute obedience as the condition for our enjoying the benefits of fellowship with him.
  2. We must recognize our universal failure to live up to the standard which God has given us.
  3. In light of 1 and 2 above, God’s justice demands that the terms of the covenant he has made with us be carried out. Every single one of us lives under the curse of God.
  4. The good news of the Gospel is that [esvbible reference=”Galatians 3:13” header=”on” format=”tooltip”]Jesus bore that curse in our place[/esvbible] if we turn to him in faith and repentance.
