Rescued from Misplaced Faith (Rescued)

May 22, 2016

The value of placing your faith in something is all about the object of your faith, and not about the faith itself. You can believe that an idol is God, but that doesn’t change the fact that the idol is made of stone. Faith in the wrong place is worse than no faith at all, because it creates false confidence. And when it comes to our eternal destiny, the last thing we need is false confidence.

The book of Romans has played a major role in world history. By reading its pages, a man came to faith in Christ, a man whose actions began a spiritual tidal wave across Europe and the world. His name was Martin Luther. Let’s trace his story as he strove to know how he could be accepted before a holy God.

The Apostle Paul was trained in the Law, with a mind keen enough to argue before the Supreme Court. In Romans 3 he builds a case for the revolutionary idea that God demands perfect righteousness from us. But God then supplies what He demands by conferring the righteousness of Jesus on those who believe. This gracious act is called justification.

The Apostle Paul paid little attention to political correctness; some of what he wrote was quite unpopular. He catalogs the depth of human depravity in Romans 3. It is a list many would argue with, but it’s an accurate list nonetheless. Humanity’s spiritual condition is depraved, and we desperately need the grace of God through Jesus.

Football players call it “putting on your game face.” They project an air of invincibility whether or not they actually feel that way. To some degree, everyone projects an outward appearance that may not square with their inner reality.  With regard to salvation, it’s easy to make yourself and others believe that all is well when it’s not. But God delivers us from our self-justifying mindset.

Religion can prevent people from understanding the truth; it can breed the pride that says “I’m okay.” In Romans chapter two, Paul addresses the religious elite of his day and unveils how ceremony has insulated them from God’s analysis of their hearts.  Self-deception is especially thick when expressed in religious terms, and we must be rescued from it.

Reading the book of Romans is like shining a light into our darkness. In its pages we see ourselves as we really are.  Without God’s grace, we are capable of awful things. In fact, we’re morally bankrupt compared to our Creator. Let us probe the darkness of the human heart and view the amazing light God sheds upon those who believe in Jesus.

If you’re tossed overboard into a stormy sea, the most important thing on your mind is rescue. It is life or death. Have you ever considered that all of humanity has gone overboard in the stormy sea of sin? The problem is that many do not realize they are drowning and are desperately in need of rescue.

The great unknown for all humanity is what happens after death. Is there really an afterlife? Near-death experiences don’t settle the matter since accounts vary.  Only the word of Jesus, who died and rose from the dead, can speak to the subject.

Before Jesus was betrayed, He went to a garden called Gethsemane to pray. Even though He was fully God, His humanity was on full display as He asked for the company of His closest friends to join Him.

These days, we are pressured to accept all kinds of things that dishonor God. We are told to be tolerant of alternate lifestyles, but when we present the gospel which includes God’s call for every person to repent, we are often labeled as intolerant bigots.
