The book of Romans describes our salvation and how we’re made right before God. Because of what Jesus did for us we are not just forgiven but also declared righteous!  I should add, at great cost to Christ. There’s nothing that compares to it!   Today pastor Jeff delves deeper into the great love of God, and how we’re saved.

What does the future hold?  While many set out to answer that question by going to psychics or looking to the stars, really we only need to open the Word for everything we need to know about it.  And that’s what we’re about to do on Sound Doctrine.  Pastor Jeff Johnson opens Daniel chapter two today which has been described as the backbone of prophecy, for good reason!  It contains some incredible prophecy.

We’ve all experienced falling short of the mark, at some point in our lives.  Maybe it was failing to make the sports team in school because you weren’t fast enough.  Or you didn’t get the job of your dreams, due to a lack of experience.  Today on Sound Doctrine we’ll learn that on our own we all fall short of a right standing with God.  But the good news is, Jesus provides the righteousness we need.  That comes to our attention in Romans chapter three.

You’ve heard of an open and shut case.  It’s often said in cases where the evidence is strong and convincing.  That’s really what we have in Romans chapter three.  Today you’ll hear the 14 counts against us, man’s defense, and the verdict.  After all is said and done we’ll see the whole world lies guilty before God.

If asked to do some self-evaluation, how would you describe yourself?  Keep that in the back of your mind.  We’ll compare it with God’s view of you today on Sound Doctrine.  Apart from Christ we’re all sick and lost.  We’re in Romans, and in the first three chapters we discover mankind is guilty before a holy God.  The apostle Paul is about to drive that point home in chapter three, verses 10-18.

The Jews of long ago had a great advantage as they were given God’s Word and told about the coming Messiah. But they didn’t see it as the privilege it really was, but rather became self-righteous. Fast forward to today and we have a big advantage in having the Word of God too. But do we see those advantages, and live as we should in light of them?  Today on Sound Doctrine we’ll listen to part two of pastor Jeff Johnson’s message, “But I’m a Christian, So What!”

Think of the great privilege and advantage we have today in the Word of God being made available to us?  You can turn on the radio like this, and hear it being taught.  You can read the Bible online, or through an app.  Or hear it being taught at church every week.  But with this great advantage comes great responsibility, as we’ll discover today on Sound Doctrine.  Pastor Jeff Johnson pulls that out of Romans chapter three.

We're in Daniel chapter two today.  Nebuchadnezzar had a troubling dream and he goes on a quest to discover its meaning.  In the verses before us today God is going to speak to the pagan King and He’ll use Daniel in the process.   Through it all, we’re carefully considering this question: What does the future hold?

It’s been said, “if you think you’re perfect then try walking on water.” That’s why we’re all in the same boat, pun intended. We need a boat if we’re to be out on the water and we need a Savior if perfection is the standard for entrance to heaven.  We’re in a series of studies based in the book of Romans and in chapter two we discover that religion and rituals will not save us!  But Jesus will!

Back in the first century the Jew was given a tremendous privilege. But as it’s been well said with privilege comes responsibility. There’s also great risk as we’ll hear about today on Sound Doctrine.  As we return to the book of Romans we’ll learn that it’s foolish to trust in the law to save.  The Jew of that time didn’t live up to their privilege and consequently brought reproach on God’s name. It’s a grave error you definitely want to avoid.
