Commentary on the sermon ”Objections to Election Part 2: His-Story” (Romans 9:19-29)

May 15, 2022

In this video, I am commenting on the sermon preached on Sunday, May 15, 2022. The recording of the worship service was not good. I hope this blesses you. If you have questions. let me know.

 

Main Point: In chp 9, Paul is offering responses to objections to the doctrine of election. First, does this mean that God is not fair (9:14)? Second, why would God judge sinners if they are fulfilling what God purposed? If what Paul has said is true, and it is, then we must reconsider and readjust how we understand history: History cannot be understood apart from an understanding that it is His-Story.

  1. His-Story: Why does God judge? Who are you? God is God (v20-21)
  2. His-Story: What if? All so the ones prepared by God for glory can better know Gods grace (v22-23)
  3. His-Story: The fulfillment of salvation by Gods grace described in Hosea & Isaiahs prophecy support this conclusion.(v24-29)
Foundations:  On God’s Eternal Decrees, Part 2
Objections to Election Part 1: God is Not Fair (Romans 9:14-18)

Objections to Election Part 1: God is Not Fair (Romans 9:14-18)

May 8, 2022

Main Point: Chapter 9 begins a new section in Romans. Paul has articulated the gospel of a righteous status to sinners received by faith whereby all who believe are saved (1:16-17). Paul explains that the reason any sinner has received this salvation is foundationally due to Gods sovereign, eternal purpose of election (9:11). Therefore, Gods word will not fail (9:6-13), Paul now offers responses to objections to the doctrine of election. First, does this mean that God is not fair (9:14)?

  1. Salvation Depends upon Gods Sovereign Mercy (v15-16)
  2. God’s Sovereign Mercy is Independent/Free (v16)
  3. Gods Sovereign Mercy Is the One Thing Standing between Us and our
    Complete Ruin.(v17-18)
Foundations:  On God’s Eternal Decrees, Part 1
The Sovereignty of God (Romans 9:6-13)

The Sovereignty of God (Romans 9:6-13)

May 1, 2022

Main Point: Chapter 9 begins a new section in Romans. Paul has articulated the gospel of the gracious accounting to sinners of a status of righteousness from God received through faith in Jesus Christ (Chp 1-8), this gospel was mostly rejected by his Pauls kinsmen/Israel, which raises the question, Is God Sovereign?

  1. God Is Sovereign-Therefore His Word Does Not Fail, 6a
    a. Gods Choice of an Israel within Israel, 6b

    b. Gods Choice of Isaac, not Ishmael, 7-9

    c. Gods Choice of Jacob, not Esau, 10-13
  2. God Is Sovereign-Therefore His People Are Grateful, not Proud.
    a. Sovereignly Saved People are Loved

    b. Sovereignly Saved People are Loving

    c. Sovereignly Saved People are Certain

    d. Sovereignly Saved People are Humbled

For the Sake of My Brothers (Romans 9:1-5)

For the Sake of My Brothers (Romans 9:1-5)

April 24, 2022

Main Point: Chapter 9 begins a new section in Romans. Paul has articulated the gospel of the gracious accounting to sinners of a status of righteousness from God received through faith in Jesus Christ (Chp 1-8).  This gospel which was rejected by his brothers directs Pauls lament, will not be effectual unless there has been a substitution of a righteous mediator for the sake of his brothers, and informs our callings for the sake of our brothers.

  1. Gospel of Christ Rejected by the brothers
  2. Gospel Reception inseparable from the Work of the Mediator-Christ
  3. Gospel Calling of Love not for the sake of the brothers, but for the
    Mediator-Christ

"Who is God?"

The Trickle to the Mighty River of Healing (Ezekiel 47:1-12)

The Trickle to the Mighty River of Healing (Ezekiel 47:1-12)

April 17, 2022

Main Point: The Resurrection of Jesus would be the key to unlocking the meaning of Ezekiels visions of renewal and healing for Gods people.

  1. It would begin with a trickle out of Jerusalem
  2. It would expand to a mighty rushing river
  3. It would culminate the changing of the unchangeable
