    - We are those out in the crossroads, both evil and good.-
    - We have received great blessing because the Jews rejected Christ, so we can only boast in the Lord!

    6 Truths of Sin and Forgiveness as Seen in Mark 2:1-12
     
    1. All sin is against God.
    - All sin is a transgression of the Law...and against the Lawgiver.
     
    2. Therefore, only God can truly forgive sin.
     
    3. If Jesus can forgive sin, He is God in human flesh.
     
    4. Jesus had the authority as God to forgive this man’s sins
    - but also, because He alone is the atoning sacrifice for sins;
    - and He alone is resurrected and living in those He saves.
     
    5. Jesus Christ has the sovereign authority to apply the atonement to anyone He wishes.
     
    6. Our greatest need is to have our sins forgiven.

    Matthew 3:5-10
     
    Blessed
    “Blessed” describes God Himself.
    “Blessed” is for those in the New Covenant.
    “Blessed” is in the present tense.
     
    Poor in spirit
    “Poor in spirit” means those who recognize their spiritual poverty.
    The poor in spirit are forever humbled.
    The poor in spirit are blessed.
    The poor in spirit are receiving a kingdom.
     
    Meek
    Meekness is not weakness.
    The meek know they have been purchased by Christ.
    The meek see their indebtedness to Him.
    Therefore, the meek are fully surrendered to Him.
     
    Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness
    Hungering is a Spirit-generated appetite.
    Hungering causes a deep love for Christ.
    Hungering causes a hatred for sin.
    Hungering drives a desire to be sanctified.
     
    Merciful
    The merciful have already received mercy.
    Mercy is not receiving what we deserve.
    Mercifulness and meekness must go hand in hand.
    The merciful are vessels through which the mercy of God flows to others.
     
    Pure in Heart
    The pure in heart are not only concerned with outward action but with inward motive.

    Receiving the Word
     
    1. We must not think that just because we are God’s people, that we naturally like every doctrine taught in scripture.
     
    2. The only criteria for determining if a doctrine is from truly from God, is...Does scripture teach it?
     
    3. Receiving God’s word...Brings complete healing and wholeness.

    Seeing by Believing
    1. Throughout the Bible, the metaphor of sight/blindness is used for how well one “sees” the things of God.
    2. Sight/blindness is controlled by God.
    3. Though God controls revelation, He commands us to make every effort to receive and believe it.
    4. When we know God’s truth, the same thing happens to us that happened to Elisha’s servant.

    What is our relationship with “The Law”
     
    6. We are under the “law of Christ”.
    We obey this “law of Christ” by:
    1. Living to the standard of His example.
    2. Being motivated by His love.
    3. Being powered by His Spirit.
    4. Rightly dividing His Word.
     
    Moral Law - fulfilled yet binding & enhanced

    Exodus 20 – The Law Through the Eyes of the New Covenant 2
     
    What is our relationship with “The Law”
    1. The term “law” is used in many different ways in the New Testament.
    - the Ten Commandments - the covenant of the law (old covenant) - the first five books of the OT (Pentateuch) - all of scripture (Psalm 1:2; Ps. 119:97; James 1:25) - any demand by God for His creation - a principle or power at work - (Rom. 7:23; Rom. 8:2)
     
    2. “The Law” is summed up by love.
    - God gave the law because He loved them. - Love fulfills the law. - (Matt. 22:37-40; Mark 12:29-31; Luke 10:27-28; Rom. 13:8-10; Gal. 5:14) - The law teaches us what love is. - Love is law. - Love does not save us. - Love is a fruit/result of being saved. - We love because He first loved us.
     
    3. A distinction must always be made between LAW and GOSPEL.
    - ‘Covenant of LAW’ vs. ‘Covenant of GRACE’. - LAW is what we do. GOSPEL is what God does. - The GOSPEL saves us. The LAW, we obey because we are saved. - The GOSPEL makes so no one can boast. - because God alone is glorified in it.
    - We will always drift toward the LAW.
     
    4. Being “free from the Law”, does not mean we are free from obeying God.
    - We are free from the curse of the Law. - We are now FREE TO OBEY. - We are free because we have the inner “law” of the Spirit. - Our motive for obedience is love for God and gratitude for what He has done. - Obedience is an evidence of salvation.
     
    5. Additional purposes for the Law
      1. All men will be judged by the Law.
      2. The Law is for unbelievers.
      3. The Law awakens a desire to sin.
      4. The Law put us to death.
     
    A death we died vicariously in Christ; which in turn frees us from the covenant of the Law.
