Sermon: Romans 3:9-26 – What is a Christian?

Sermon text

Sermon audio

Put yourself in the passage: You had been in the dock awaiting a terrifying sentence.  Now the verdict is delivered for all time: “Justified.” How do you feel?

Or put yourself in the slave market.  You had been shackled and owned by a terrible master.  Now you’re freed and the Son of God is given to you.  How do you feel?

Or put yourself in the queue at the temple.  You deserved to shed your own blood.  But Christ died in your place, as your Lamb.  How do you feel?

What is a Christian?  We are JUSTIFIED, FREED, and FORGIVEN and we don’t deserve it for a second.  Our Christian lives are NOTHING to do with ourselves, and EVERYTHING to do with Jesus our LORD…

    – 1) My name is Jade Sheldon2) I live in Portland, Oregon.3) I’m a photographer/illustrator/future educator (I just finished up my Masters of Education and hope to obtain my Master’s of Fine Art Degree.4) The most wonderful thing about my life right now is my husband. We were married this past summer. He is the most loving and most supportive person I’ve ever met. While I am trying to find my footing as an artist, he is watching out for me and making sure I have the freedom to truly pursue what is in my heart. He is truly a blessing God gave me.
