Self-Denial And The Cross

Self-Denial And The Cross

One Hope One Boast Conference – Day 2 Session 3

 

DESCRIPTION

This life makes it easy for us to look out for our well-being and to consider ourselves first. However, that is contrary to the gospel of Christ crucified. Biblically we are called to self-denial and to go last instead of first in order that we might love well. Jeremy gives clarity to this subject with passion.

Self-denial and the Cross

TRUE GOSPEL ONLY PATH TO SELF-DENIAL

THE TRUE GOSPEL IS THE ONLY PATH TO SELF-DENIAL

“He is no fool who gives up what he can not save, to gain that which he can not lose” Jim Elliot

  1. Are we embracing self-denial or are we just plain in denial?
  2. The insanity of the human soul is our relentless attempt to preserve a reputation, and our short frail life.
  3. In short, we resist applying the cross daily to Gods process of changing us. Jesus calls this ‘mans interests’.
  4. Mark 8:31-38

CAN'T BE FIRST WHEN FELLOWSHIPPING IN THE BODY

THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF CHOOSING TO BE “FIRST” WHILE YOU FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHERS IN THE GOSPEL

  1. Mark 9:30-37
  2. Mark 10:23-31

CHOOSING LAST WHEN FELLOWSHIPPING IN THE BODY

THE POSSIBILITY OF CHOOSING TO BE “LAST” WHILE YOU FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHERS IN THE GOSPEL

  1. Philippians 2:3-5
  2. James 3:13-18
  3. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
  4. 1 Corinthians 16:8-9,13,14

TRUE EXCHANGE OF HUMILITY AMONG BELIEVERS

A TRUE EXCHANGE OF HUMILITY AMONG BELIEVERS

  1. Taking up our cross daily is how we display loves way of ambition in the gospel, a true exchange of humility among believers. This is how we display a vibrant witness to unbelievers. They are provided with a stark contrast to the interests of man in this present evil age.
  2. John 13:31-35
  3. Embracing this ‘cross-cess’ is all about perceiving God’s righteousness. It is a continual laying aside of self-righteousness and any boast we may seem to be worthy of. In essence what we might consider assets, and credentials in the temporal suddenly become liabilities. Whatever would hinder a growing revelation in the rich knowledge of Jesus is considered your worst enemy. This is our anti-boast.
  4. Philippians 3:1-4:3
