Salvation and the Work of Christ
This study series is an expansion of the simpler 'Salvation' studies on this website. It is not for the faint hearted! It takes you deep into the biblical concepts of salvation in both the Old and New Testaments. It meets historic debates about the nature of salvation head on. It is very much aware that far too many Christians have such a weak, watery understanding of salvation that they live their Christian lives with a heavy burden of guilt and a fear of God's judgement - as if Jesus Christ had not carried all the guilt and taken all the judgement, as if 'grace' did not exist.
These studies are constantly aware that the angel's message to the shepherds in Luke 2 was one of grand assurance: fear not ... good news ... great joy ... glory to God ... peace to men. This is what Jesus Christ came for. This is what Jesus Christ died for. It is towards this peace and joy, it is towards this absence of fear of judgement, that these studies seek to take you. And it is when we live each moment with this peace, this joy in God, this trust and confidence in the finished work of Jesus Christ, that God is glorified.
