3 1. Establish the Depravity of man a. BEFORE the Fall (Gen 1:24-31; 2:4-8, 15-17) Genesis 1: Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind"; and it was so. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 27 And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth." 29 Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; 30 and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food"; and it was so. 31 And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

4 1. Establish the Depravity of man a. BEFORE the Fall (Gen 1:24-31; 2:4-8, 15-17) Genesis 2: This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made earth and heaven. 5 Now no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the LORD God had not sent rain upon the earth; and there was no man to cultivate the ground. 6 But a mist used to rise from the earth and water the whole surface of the ground. 7 Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. 8 And the LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. Genesis 2: Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; 17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you shall surely die."

5 1. Establish the Depravity of man b. THE FALL (Gen 3:1-7) Genesis 3:1-7 1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, "Indeed, has God said, 'You shall not eat from any tree of the garden'?" 2 And the woman said to the serpent, "From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; 3 but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat from it or touch it, lest you die.'" 4 And the serpent said to the woman, "You surely shall not die! 5 "For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." 6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings. c. AFTER the Fall (Gen 3:8-24) / Adam sinned, therefore all sinned (Gen 5:1-3) Genesis 3: And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 Then the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, "Where are you?" 10 And he said, "I heard the sound of Thee in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself." 11 And He said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?" 12 And the man said, "The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate." 13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" And the woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."

6 1. Establish the Depravity of man c. AFTER the Fall (Gen 3:8-24) / Adam sinned, therefore all sinned (Gen 5:1-3) Genesis 3: And the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly shall you go, And dust shall you eat All the days of your life; 15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel." 16 To the woman He said, "I will greatly multiply Your pain in childbirth, In pain you shall bring forth children; Yet your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you." 17 Then to Adam He said, "Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat from it'; Cursed is the ground because of you; In toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life. 18 "Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; And you shall eat the plants of the field; 19 By the sweat of your face You shall eat bread, Till you return to the ground, Because from it you were taken; For you are dust, And to dust you shall return." 20 Now the man called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all the living. 21 And the LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them. 22 Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, lest he stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever "-- 23 therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim, and the flaming sword which turned every direction, to guard the way to the tree of life.

7 1. Establish the Depravity of man c. AFTER the Fall (Gen 3:8-24) / Adam sinned, therefore all sinned (Gen 5:1-3) Genesis 5:1-3 1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. 2 He created them male and female, and He blessed them and named them Man in the day when they were created. 3 When Adam had lived one hundred and thirty years, he became the father of a son in his own likeness, according to his image, and named him Seth. d. The RESULTS OF THE FALL Rom 5:12,19; 1Cor 15:22; John 3:18; Acts 26:18; Romans 7:5; Gal 3:22; Eph 2:1-3; 2Thess 1:8-9; Tit 1:15) Romans 5:12 - Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned Romans 5:19 - For as through the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous. 1 Corinthians 15:22 - For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all shall be made alive. John 3:18 - "He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

8 1. Establish the Depravity of man d. The RESULTS OF THE FALL Rom 5:12,19; 1Cor 15:22; John 3:18; Acts 26:18; Romans 7:5; Gal 3:22; Eph 2:1-3; 2Thess 1:8-9; Tit 1:15) Romans 7:5 - For while we were in the flesh, the sinful passions, which were aroused by the Law, were at work in the members of our body to bear fruit for death. Galatians 3:22 - But the Scripture has shut up all men under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. Ephesians 2:1-3 - And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. 3 Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. 2 Thessalonians 1: dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 9 And these will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, Titus 1:15 - To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.

9 1. Establish the Depravity of man e. The Depravity of Man (Rom 3:10,23). All humans beings have / are i. inherent sin (Ps 51:5) Psalm 51:5 - Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. ii. Imputed sin (Rom 5:12-21) Romans 5: Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned-- 13 for until the Law sin was in the world; but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many. 16 And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgression resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from many transgressions resulting in justification. 17 For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. 18 So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. 19 For as through the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous. 20 And the Law came in that the transgression might increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, 21 that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

10 1. Establish the Depravity of man e. The Depravity of Man (Rom 3:10,23). All humans beings have / are iii. Personal sin (Rom 3:10-12,23) Romans 3: as it is written, "There is none righteous, not even one; 11 There is none who understands, There is none who seeks for God; 12 All have turned aside, together they have become useless; There is none who does good, There is not even one." Romans 3:23 - for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, iv. In the Kingdom of Satan f. A CHASM now exists between an offended God (Hab 1:13) vs Sinful Man (Gal 3:22) Galatians 3:22 - But the Scripture has shut up all men under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

11 1. Establish the Depravity of man g. ENMITY exists between God and Man (Rom 5:10) because God s standard of NOT ONE SIN cannot be kept by man (Rom 3:23; 6:23; James 2:10; Gal 3:10) Romans 5:10 - For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Romans 3:23 - for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, James 2:10 - For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all. Galatians 3:10 - For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them."

12 KINGDOM OF GOD Christ s sinless blood, the ransom price (Leviticus 17:11; Hebrews 9:22, 11-14) Therefore, God s wrath propitiated The Finished Work of Christ (1 Timothy 2:5-6; Acts 4:12) CHASM BETWEEN GOD S HOLINESS AND MAN S SINFULNESS 2. Present the Finished Work of Christ a. Propitiation (Rom 3:25) Christ s sinless blood was the ransom price paid to God (Lev 17:11; Heb 9:22, 11-14), therefore God s wrath was propitiated by Christ s death b. Redemption (1Cor 6:20; Rom 3:24) c. Justification (Rom 3:24,28) d. Imputation (2Cor 5:21) e. The Benefits of Salvation (Eph 2:11-22; Rom 5:1-11) f. Believers are now in the kingdom of God PROPITIATION IMPUTATION JUSTIFICATION REDEMPTION (Rom 3:25) (2 Cor 5:21) (Rom 3:24, 28) (1Cor 6:20; Rom 3:24) EPHESIANS 2:11-22 access to God of God s household Children of God saints COST: Luke 9:23-26 Matthew 10:37-39 Mark 8:34-38 Luke 14: Benefits of Salvation Christ s +R imputed on us Justifies us Buys us out of slave market of sin ROMANS 5:1-11 peace with God introduction stand in grace God s love saved from wrath reconciled Rom 5:8-10 John 3:16 Rom 2:4 2 Peter 3:9 ENMITY (Romans 5:10) GOD, OFFENDED (Hab 1:13) (Rom 3:23; 6:23; James 2:10; Gal 3:10) MAN, SINFUL (Gal 3:22) HOW TO SHARE THE GOSPEL g. The work of Salvation is done out of God s love for mankind (Rom 5:8-10; John 3:16; Rom 2:4; 2Pet 3:9) h. Remind to count the Cost (Luke 9:23-26; Matt 10:37-39; Mk 8:34-38; Luke 14:26-35)

13 2. Present the Finished Work of Christ a. Propitiation (Rom 3:25) Christ s sinless blood was the ransom price paid to God (Lev 17:11; Heb 9:22, 11-14), thus God s wrath was propitiated by Christ s death. Romans 3:25 - whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; Leviticus 17:11 - 'For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood by reason of the life that makes atonement.' Hebrews 9:22 - And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. Hebrews 9: But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; 12 and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled, sanctify for the cleansing of the flesh, 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

14 2. Present the Finished Work of Christ b. Redemption (1Cor 6:20; Rom 3:24) 1 Corinthians 6:20 - For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. Romans 3:24 - being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; c. Justification (Rom 3:24,28) Romans 3:24 - being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; Romans 3:28 - For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law. d. Imputation (2Cor 5:21) 2 Corinthians 5:21 - He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

15 2. Present the Finished Work of Christ e. The Benefits of Salvation (Eph 2:11-22; Rom 5:1-11) Ephesians 2: Therefore remember, that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called "Uncircumcision " by the so-called "Circumcision," which is performed in the flesh by human hands-- 12 remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one, and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, 15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, 16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were far away, and peace to those who were near; 18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father. 19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household, 20 having been built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together is growing into a holy temple in the Lord; 22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.

16 2. Present the Finished Work of Christ e. The Benefits of Salvation (Eph 2:11-22; Rom 5:1-11) Romans 5: Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; 4 and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; 5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. 6 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. 10 For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

17 2. Present the Finished Work of Christ f. Believers are now in the kingdom of God g. The work of Salvation is done out of God s love for mankind (Rom 5:8-10; John 3:16; Rom 2:4; 2Pet 3:9) Romans 5: But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. 10 For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. Romans 2:4 - Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance? 2 Peter 3:9 - The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

18 2. Present the Finished Work of Christ h. Remind to count the Cost (Luke 9:23-26; Matt 10:37-39; Mk 8:34-38; Luke 14:26-35) Luke 9: And He was saying to them all, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. 24 "For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it. 25 "For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits himself? 26 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. Matthew 10: "He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 "He who has found his life shall lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake shall find it. Mark 8:34-34 And He summoned the multitude with His disciples, and said to them, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 35 "For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's shall save it. 36 "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? 37 "For what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."

19 2. Present the Finished Work of Christ h. Remind to count the Cost (Luke 9:23-26; Matt 10:37-39; Mk 8:34-38; Luke 14:26-35) Luke 14: "If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple. 27 "Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. 28 "For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost, to see if he has enough to complete it? 29 "Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him, 30 saying, 'This man began to build and was not able to finish.' 31 "Or what king, when he sets out to meet another king in battle, will not first sit down and take counsel whether he is strong enough with ten thousand men to encounter the one coming against him with twenty thousand? 32 "Or else, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks terms of peace. 33 "So therefore, no one of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions. 34 "Therefore, salt is good; but if even salt has become tasteless, with what will it be seasoned? 35 "It is useless either for the soil or for the manure pile; it is thrown out.

Acts 2:38 - And Peter said to them, "Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
