This Is How Preaching Ought To Be

From Albert Martin:

God’s multifaceted rescue mission that we call salvation, a salvation centered in the cross of Christ, has no “extra’s.” Every cross-secured redemptive privilege answers to a specific facet of sin’s tragic effects upon the human race. In other words, Christ’s work on the cross is what it is because we are what we are: sinners. When we begin to meditate on the various categories within which the accomplishments of Jesus’ death are set before us, we find that each one of those categories answers a very specific aspect of sin’s tragic influence in and upon us and also upon God’s relationship to us a sinner.*

Albert Martin then goes on to list five categories of Christ’s work on the cross corresponding to a specific area of humanity’s sinful condition. I will list the five points without his elaboration. They are:

1. Sin produces guilt.
2. Sin provokes the wrath of God.
3. Sin creates real alienation.
4. Sin brings us into a state of bondage and slavery.
5. Sin has brought us under the control of sinister, evil powers.

Soli Deo Gloria!

For his Glory,
