Sermon Summary

The Sermon Outline and Explanation

Power of the Gospel

Pastor Grosjean

Rom. 1:13-16 “Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles. 14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. 15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”


I. Forgive Sins Rom. 3:24 “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;”

     A. Scope - Jesus can give remission of all sins. That means His blood washes them all away.

     B. Source - faith in blood. It is not your works or your wealth or your worthiness that washes away sin. It is a simple beggar's faith.

     C. Security - Redemption (the purchase of Christ) What God does is forever. If He saves you, you are saved. He will not un-adopt you as His child.

II. Fortify and Secure

     A. Though Faith, Sanctified & justified .Rom 5:1 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

           1. We have peace with God.

           2. We have access to God's throne

           3. We have rejoicing with the presence of the Spirit of Joy

     B. Though Failing, Strength. Rom. 5:6 “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.” II Cor. 12:9 “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”

     C. Through Fear of death, Secured by life Rom. 5:17 “For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.”

III. Fix for ServiceRom. 6:18 “Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.”

Baptism does not save anyone. But it is an act of obedience that God will bless. How can you do the greater things that God wants you to do as a disciple of Jesus if you will not do the first and most simple thing. Be Baptized.

     A. It identifies with Death Rom. 6:3 “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?”

     B. It identifies with Dirt of Burial Rom. 6:4 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”

     C. It identifies with Deliverance of Resurrection Rom. 6:5 “For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also [in the likeness] of [his] resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with [him], that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.”

IV. Free from Satan

     A. Because of Who is for us. Rom. 8:31 “What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?”

     B. Because of Who fills us I John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

      Pastor Andrew,

      Thank you for sharing such enlightened words with us. Great Hub, and excerpt from youtube. I too would rather be a servant in a little church, than follow after the riches of this world, and miss God.

      Pastor Andrew; I really like the teaching in this hub. Our beliefs are identical in that repect. It appears you have a vast number of very good hubs which I will enjoy reading.
