Because of Our Salvation - Part II

Notes & Transcripts

[ “If we try to build unity in the church on the basis of our first birth, we will fail; but if we build unity on the basis of the new birth, we will succeed.”[1] ]

[ “Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth…” ESV  Past perfect tense – completed work.  Obedience – compliance, submission. “We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren.  He who does not love abides in death.”  “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law…”  ]

The Enduring Word

[ “…for a sincere love of the brethren…”  Sincere – literally, not hypocritical.  Love – GR philadelphia. Brotherly love because of our common second birth. ]

[ “…love…”  Love – GR agapao.  Agape love because of our differences. ]

[ Jesus sweating drops of blood – sacrificial, intense.  Fervently – to stretch out the hand. ]

[ Long – intensely desire. ]

[ Putting aside – stripping off soiled garments.  ]

[ Wickedness.  Nourishes antagonism, builds up grudges, and secretly hopes that revenge, harm, or tragedy will happen to another. ]

[ Falsifies income tax returns, cheats on exams, lies about age, bribes officials, and pulls shady deals in business.  Can’t serve God and wealth. ]

[  Pretends to be happily married when his home is a battlefield; spiritual on Sundays but as carnal as a goat on weekdays; pretends interest in others but his motives are selfish. ]

[ Literally, speaking against. ]

Slander

[ “…like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation…”  Word – GR logikos, pertaining to reason or logic; logical.  Long – intensely desire. Mentioned 42 times in Psalm 119 alone. Plus, statutes and commandments. ]
