  •  The Necessity of Christ’s Death

 

    1. The claim of scripture             Matt. 26:39; Luke 24:25-26; Heb.2:10; 8:3; 9:22-23
    2. The Holiness of God
    3. The Sinfulness of Humanity

 

 

  • The Accomplishment of Christ’s Death: The Four “Shuns” of the Cross

 

    1. Expiation
      1. 2 Cor.5:21; 1 Peter 2:24; 3:18
      2. Offense: we are guilty
      3. Effect: our guilt is removed
    2. Propitiation
      1. Rom. 3:25; Heb. 2:17; 1 John 2:2; 4:10
      2. Offense: God is angry
      3. Effect: The wrath of God against sin is appeased 
    3. Reconciliation
      1. 2 Cor. 5:18-20; Rom. 5:10-11; Eph. 2:16; Col. 1:20-21
      2. Offense: we are separated from God
      3. Effect: We can now have peace with God
    4. Redemption
      1. Matt. 20:28; Gal. 3:10,13; 4:2,5; Rom. 3:24; Eph. 1:7; Tit. 2:14; 1 Peter 1:18
      2. Offense: we are slaves to sin
      3. Effect: We are delivered from the power and the effects of sin

 

Application

  • Do you embrace every aspect of what Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross?  Are all four of these shuns grounds for your worship of him who died for you!
  • Will you share “Christ crucified” (1 Cor. 1:23) with others?
