Jesus on Mission: Our Substitute

By April 13, 2014December 15th, 2014Jesus on Misson Series, Sermon Series Pre-Campaign)

Big Idea: Jesus’ mission was to die in our place

The Lord’s Supper (Luke 22:14-20)

  1. Jesus gave himself for you
  2. See also: 1 Pet. 1:18-19; 1 Cor. 5:7; Eph. 5:2; Matt. 20:28
  3. Jesus’ death was the climax of his mission

The Mount of Olives (Luke 22:39­-44)

  1. Jesus bore our sin on the cross
  2. See also: Rom. 8:3; 1 Pet. 2:24; Isa. 53:11

Why did Jesus have to die?

“The obstacle to forgiveness is neither our sin alone nor our guilt alone, but the divine reaction in love and wrath toward guilty sinners… God is love yet we need to remember that his love is a holy love, love which yearns over sinners while at the same time refusing to condone their sin” – Stott

  1. Two reasons why we struggle with this question
  2. We don’t grasp the gravity of sin
  3. We don’t grasp the majesty of God

The Duel Nature of the Cross:

  1. Holiness and Love
  2. Justice and Mercy
  3. Wrath and Grace
