ON A HILL TOO FAR AWAY - Fifteen Protestant Truths About the Death of God the Son

#10 - Jesus Christ Died On The Cross To Free Us From The Bondage Of Both Our Ancestry

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
1 Peter 1:17-19
#10 In The Series "ON A HILL TOO FAR AWAY - Fifteen Protestant Truths About the Death of God the Son"

What an insightful text Peter gives us. It opens yet another window in this series of teachings on the accomplishments of Christ Jesus, God the Son, as He died for us on the cross. We're meant to see three thoughts linked tightly together - unbreakably together. First, there's the gracious privilege of calling upon God as our Father - "....if you call on him as Father...."(17). Then, second, there is the command to the kind of conduct required if we so address God - "....conduct yourselves with fear...."(17). You can teach a parrot to call God Father, but there is a lifestyle that must go along with the confession in a human person. Finally, in the third thought in these verses, Peter describes the provision that makes such a lifestyle of fearing God possible. He says that through Christ's death you have been redeemed from the "....the futile ways inherited from your forefathers...."(18).
