Comment to those looking at my sermons: Preach the Gospel
Sermon or series that made a difference: Gospel
One of my favorite illustrations: Imputation: two books with book covers. One book represents me and one book represents Jesus. The cover is marked accordingly. The contents of the book represent everything that each has done. In the case of the book marked me, it is filled with sins of comission and omission. In the case of the book marked Jesus, it is filled with perfection, righteousness, and godliness. When Jesus died on the cross, my sins were imputed to him and his righteousness was imputed to me. (At this point, swap the book covers so that Jesus covers my book and Me covers Jesus’ book.) When we accept Jesus as our saviour he took our sins and God gave us His righteousness.
