15 Jun Who Needs The Gospel, and Why? – Romans 3:9-20 – June 14, 2020
The gospel is good news, but it is only received by those who see their need. We all need the gospel because we all are sinners. If we deny our sinfulness, or downplay just how sinful we are, we will not be open to the saving grace of God in Christ. If we continue to focus on other people’s sin, instead of our own, we will remain close-minded to the truth about ourselves. The Spirit, through the Scriptures, leads us to see our sinfulness and acknowledge our need, leading to repentance and faith in Christ. The sinfulness of all people is a doctrine we dare not jump over to get to grace. Where there is sin, there is even more grace.
Grace Community church exists to build spiritually healthy people for ministry in the world. One of the ways that we pursue this mission is by gathering each Sunday for corporate worship, prayer, and biblical teaching. The corporate nature of this gathering is both edifying to the believer and a witness of God’s grace to the world. Sermon speaker is Scott Patty unless otherwise noted.
