1 Peter 2, 7

I.

Christ the foundation whereon we build our spiritual house.  “Other foundation can no may lay”–(1 Cor. 3, 11).  “None other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4, 12).  Christ alone!

II.

The condition is faith that yields all to him, trusts him fully for salvation–an act of the whole man–intellect, emotion and will.  None other has the authority and power to save.  None other has died to redeem us.  Look to him and live.  Christ or chaos.

III.

To all who believe, who trust in him for salvation, as Lord and Saviour, “he is precious”–an honour, is our sufficiency.

(1)  They have their sins forgiven by the blood of the Lamb.  Guilt no longer rests upon them.  “Though your sins be as scarlet” (Isa. 1, 18).  “He is faithful and jut to forgive us,” etc (1 Jno. 1, 9).

(2)  Become the sons and daughters of the Lord Almighty–adopted into the family of God.

What a blessed relationship, what an honour!  Who is not happy in such an experience?!

“My soul shall make the boast in the Lord.”  Ps. 34

“He that believeth on him shall not be ashamed” (v6).

Regeneration   9 comments

John 3, 7

1.  This is an important doctrine.  One’s ideas here will influence all his other views.  Its relation to experience is of great moment.  Be correct in opinion and experience of it.

2.  The ground of the doctrine is that scripture reveals man as a sinner.  His sinful nature necessitates the experience.  All have sinned.  Gen. 6, 5 & 8, 21; Ps. 5, 15 & 58, 3; Jer. 17, 9; Isa. 1, 5-6; Rom. 3, 23.  That Christ died for all Paul uses to prove that all have sinned.  Else why should Christ die for all?

3.  What is regeneration?

Not mere reformation, or good resolutions.  “To cause to be born anew, to bring forth again.”  The change in man (Gal. 5, 6-6:15) wrought by the Holy Spirit dethroning sin and enthroning Christ.  A complete moral change (see Ezek. 36, 25-27).  Depravity and uncleanness acquired by transgressions necessitate “the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.”

4.  How is it received?  By faith.  God’s grace is conditional; He does not impose it upon those who do not want it.  “Ask and receive,” but ask in faith.  Man’s first step in sin was through unbelief.  His last step in finding mercy is faith.  The terms are simple and so easy [that] anyone can meet them and be saved.  Are you thus saved from your sins?
