New Creation, New Image

In Audio, Sermons by Geoff Chapman

Sermon Summary: John 20:19-22 & 2 Corinthians 5:16-21
  1. The Christian is a New Creation, But That Doesn’t Mean Perfection
  2. Why Not? God is most glorified by our gradual sanctification because it reveals the cross of Christ most fully.
  3. How does sanctification reveal God’s glory most fully?
    1. Because it preserves our freedom and thus we love God freely
    2. Because it reveals God’s wisdom and power in all things
    3. It reveals the full extent of God’s love and human wickedness
    4. It makes God’s love understandable to others
  4. More Applications:
    1. We can have confidence, even in our suffering, sin and weakness, that God is glorified in us
    2. We can have confidence that God takes pleasure in us and other Christians
  5. Conclusion – God Is Filling The World With His New Image
