Rooted in the Gospel, week 2 – Rusty Hutson – April 15, 2018

If we are going to understand the Gospel, or the “good news” of God, then we have to begin with God.

Four simple questions in uncovering whether we are rooted in the truth of the gospel or the lies of this world:

  1. Who is God?
  2. What has God done?
  3. Who am I in light of God’s work?
  4. How should I live (what fruit should i experience) in light of who I am?

Galatians 5:19-21 – Rooted in the Lies of the World

the promise/warning –> those who live pridefully focused on fulfilling these temporary desires will be rooted in the world with shallow roots

Galatians 5:22-25 – Rooted in the Truth of the Spirit

Rooted and connected to the Lord by abiding in His word.

2 Corinthians 3:19 – Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom.
