Gospel 5- A Spiritual House

Gospel 5- A Spiritual House (audio file) Well, here we are. We’ve reached the final sunday in our series on the Gospel.  We have been learning what it is, and what it does.  We’ve done the flyover of redemptive history from Romans 1, where we saw that God made all things to point us to himself, we worshipped creation, rather than the creator. Then he gave the Law to diagnose our idolatry, and show us our sin, then he sent His Son Jesus to fulfill the law by living a sinless life, dying a sinners death, and raising from the dead, … Continue reading Gospel 5- A Spiritual House

Gospel 4- Justification b

Gospel 4-Justification B (audio file) Here we are in the fourth week of a series of messages on the Gospel.  We have been looking at scripture to understand what the gospel is, and what it does.

Gospel 2- Regeneration

Ephesians 2:1-10 (audio) Emmaus Christian Church  June 10, 2012 Ephesians 2:1-10 Last week we started a multi-week series on the good news about Jesus, The Gospel.  What it is, and what it does.  Last week we took a look at some major points in the story.  We stood back and looked at the beauty of the whole story through the lens of Romans 1. We saw that God created to world to point us to Himself, and how our response was to worship the creation rather than the creator. How God then responded by revealing His law, to show us our … Continue reading Gospel 2- Regeneration

Gospel 1

June 3, 2012 Emmaus God’s Plan in time Ok, so we just spent three weeks studying the book of Ruth.  I hope everyone was able to grasp what God was showing us in that book.  It was great for me to go through it again, and I hope the Lord met you as you studied it for yourself, and here on sunday mornings.  I do want to recognize that there is so much content in that book that we could take three months or more and go through it.  All the implications of what happened there, and what God was … Continue reading Gospel 1
