The Gospel Is Not Involved In Regeneration
I. This study treats of regeneration as an integral part of the eternal salvation of sinners which is the work of God alone and does not depend upon the gospel.
A. regeneration: The action of regenerating; the process or fact of being regenerated; re-creation, re-formation, etc.
B. regenerate: In religious use; to cause to be born again in a spiritual sense; to invest with a new and higher spiritual nature.

(2CO 10:3-5) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Christ’s Better Rest
I. The Book of Hebrews sets forth the superiority of Christ over angels, Moses, Levi and Joshua, etc.
A. Joshua of old did what Moses could not do: he brought a redeemed people into their God-
given inheritance. c/w ROM 8:3-4; GAL 3:10-13.
B. Joshua is spelled “Jesus” in ACT 7:45; HEB 4:8. Both names mean, “Jehovah saves” or
“Jehovah is salvation.” ISA 43:11 c/w MAT 1:21; 1JO 3:5.
C. As good and great as Joshua was, Paul shows the Hebrew Christians that Jesus is ...
Christians and Judgment
1) Didn’t Jesus say, “Judge not”? MAT 7:1-5
a) This is often used to condemn people, especially Christians, for judging others.

￼The Importance Of A Day
A. Have you ever talked to someone about a doctrinal issue other than salvation itself who expressed that since it doesn’t directly impact salvation it doesn’t matter?
B. For example, we shouldn’t argue about the days of creation since they do not directly impact salvation.
C. “As long as we believe in Jesus Christ, that’s what’s important.”
