This weekend at EPIC we concluded our series on the doctrine of justification called Jesus + Nothing = Everything. (both title and content based on the book of the same title by Tullian Tchividjian) It was serious, fun and effective. We made an intentional effort to be more theologically heavy and doctrinally challenging. I think our students were challenged and I pray they now understand God’s incredible Grace more than ever. The last week of the series was really a recap of the other weeks. Here were the points:
1. We worship an incomprehensibly glorious God.
Isaiah 6 and
Isaiah 45:5 – I am the Lord, and there is no other;
apart from me there is no God.
2. We are sinfully lost people
Gen 8:21 – Every inclination of man’s heart is evil from childhood
Matt 19:12 – Spiritually sick
2 Thess. 2:9 – We are continually perishing
3. God’s grace is simply scandalous.
The beauty of the gospel is that God knows all our sins and sinful desires yet does not count them against us because of the cross of Jesus.
Great series. Excited to see how our students respond to God’s grace.
