Sunday, May 27, 2001

Point 6. The Motivation Believers Should Have Toward the Unbelievers Because of the Book of Life.

Ministry of reconciliation vs. 18 Doctrine of reconciliation vs. 19. Ambassadors of reconciliation vs. 20. Exchange of reconciliation vs. 21.

Reconciliation is that concept and doctrine of soteriology which recognizes a barrier between God and man.

1. God the Father who is the reconciler.

The barrier was sin, ROM 3:23.

The problem of physical birth, PSA 51:5; 1CO 15:22, was solved by regeneration.

The barrier because of the character of God, PSA 145:17, was solved by the doctrine of propitiation.

The barrier of man’s righteousness, ISA 64:6, was solved by the doctrine of justification, GAL 2:16.

There was the problem of our position in Adam, 1CO 15:22, solved by our new position in Christ by means of the baptism of the Spirit.

1. For the entire human race, both believers and unbelievers.

God the Father is the one who imputes human life to the soul, ISA 57:16.

God has a purpose and desire for each member of the human race, 1TI 2:4; 2PE 3:9.

Selection means that God decided to let a person become a person with a human volition.

You, as all members of the human race, were born in sin, PSA 51:5; 58:3; ROM 5:12,17-18; 1CO 15:22.

JOH 15:16 “You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and {that} your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give to you.
