Will and in a fire, and should determine the Junior welcoming you to another broadcast of the Baptist Bible are in and a and a and and and and and a and we continue the message today with the price when we come to realize what great sugars we are by nature, we stand amazed that God would give his own son and that that great price would be paid for our redemption.

They will rejoice in that truth and hope the messages we continue with her today will be a blessing to you and then you were right and let us know that you have listened. Our address is the Baptist Bible. Our box 17 oh 37, Cincinnati, OH 45217. The reference to the book of Hebrews chapter 9. What a vivid picture we see the fulfillment of it here in Hebrews chapter 9 verse 11 but Christ being, high priest of good things to come back greater and more perfect tabernacle made with hands, that is to say, not this millimeter by the blood of goats in one place for us. He is our great high priest game not been done through all the history of Israel in the old time but now he precedes a chakra for anything to have presented it to the father ended six obtained eternal redemption for us. Verse 24 for Christ is not entered in place made with hands, which are figures of the true that if he wasn't entered into the tabernacle part of the temple work made my hands into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God farmhouse, you mean you need someone to plead your case please the presence of God to appear for court should offer himself as a high priest into the holy place year after year with the priest. Once he offer the sacrifice was never finished. There was no chair to sit down because when one offer was made to the time that another would be made when Christ made the perfect sacrifice. There was no need to be repeated for he must've suffered since the foundation of the world.

But now what's in the end of the world. The sacrifice of himself reported in the men once to die, but after this the judgment, so Christ was once offered to bear the same name for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Yes, beautiful picture of the redemptive work as we see the Lamb slain and on the night of the Passover. Those children were being spare it's only because of the blood that was shed by Jesus Christ and applied to our account that were delivered without having considered the need of redemption. Having considered also how it comes about. Want to consider the consequence of it consequence of what is it mean well.

According to this text you, not your own.

You bought with a price.

You all the Jesus Christ. If you're redeemed, it's a reason for great joy presence. Chapter 3 the 23rd verse, Paul says you are Christ churches that belong to Christ. He possesses you feel you can think of anything better. If you are section, if he has particular you belong to him finally interested in you is interested in every detail of your life much. There may be moments of doubt and fear and discouragement where you wonder, does he really care is is God interested in me but you can be reassured for the fact that he has purchased you that he does care you party's so it's a region of great joy, a source of joy that exceeds any other kind of joy that we might imagine. Only we live in a world today, when people are so caught up with her love of material things constantly wanting more and more and more course with the recent economic decline. Many have lost much of what they had worked for for a lifetime.

Soon people focus their attention upon somebody can say I saw it coming. I took my money out of the market. I put it into gold stashed away whatever did Look what I possess, can be because of what I have imitated my friends, you might be a multimillionaire you might have more money than anybody else on this earth, but the possession of money. The possession of power and influence could not possibly compared to what it means to be purchased by Jesus Christ belong to him to be his position with a some biblical examples that the 12 Book of Luke and talked about a man who was prosperous it had such a harvest, that there was not room to put into the Barnes set out to build bigger barns. The thing that the greatest pleasure was wealth, prosperity verse 1912 and I will say to my soul. So, thou hast much goods laid up for many years. Find an easy drink and be merry. Here is the attitude of a proud man, it says you're a self-made man to pull myself up by the bootstraps started out with nothing but look at the millions of acquired over the years.

Look at the real estate owned look at what I've been able to accomplish time for me to sit back and enjoy the fruit of my labor eat drink and be merry. But God said unto him, thou fool, this night, my soul shall be required of the then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided so is it even lay up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.

It didn't matter.

Barnes. This man had paid it matter how slow they work it matter how rich he was. God says this night so we required of the it doesn't matter what you may have accomplished what you may have been what you might possess in this world friends, if your soul is required. I do go out into eternity. In ruling think of suffering the wrath of God forever horrendous sobering thought and refund a picture of just in the 16th chapter of the Gospel of Luke we read of another rich man. He was cold and purple and linen and fire sumptuously every day.

Poor man named Lazarus down the distinct full of sores. The dogs came and licked his sores doesn't indicate the rich man even had any compassion for the man was rich. The man was prosperous and that man was the esteem in his community. But notice what it says in verse 23, after he died and was buried, and in hell he lift up his eyes, being in romance and see if they would have a far off, and Lazarus in his bosom. What difference would it make if you die and lifted up your eyes, inhale was too late. Bring a mercy. All my friends that we might see the value of what it is to believe that we been purchased by Jesus Christ, a source of tremendous joy joy above everything else that could possibly contemplate to be redeemed, means that you have been delivered from condemnation you would just lick them a violator of the law deserving to have the penalty meted out to suffer God's wrath forever and ever: chapter 8 verse 33 gives us insight as to what happened to the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. What shall we say to these things. If God be for us, who can be against us.

Who is he that condemns it is Christ that died, a rather that is risen again, even at the right hand of God, who also limits to make intercession for us, who can lay anything to the charge of bodily how wonderful you look at your life and you say, there are many things you can relate to my charge. I do see my saying I do see my failure.

I do see how I have failed again and again and again to love God with all my my heart, soul and strength. I see how I've lived myself I see how to yield to the passions of this human nature, I see that old to think though that I've been redeemed that the price that I could not pay has been paid for me that I have now even the forgiveness of sins. Ephesians chapter 1 verse seven says that in Jesus Christ we have redemption, even the forgiveness of sin's many time for the person is deeply convicted of their sin.

They mourn under they grieve over they shed tears because of this old I could just retrace my steps just turn that chapter out of my life and I just put it all away no matter what you do. There's no way get rid of it. There's no way you can overcome it in yourself, but the good news of the gospel is there is forgiveness of sins that because of the redemption that we have in Jesus Christ. He says that we have seen and is forgiven, forgiven, he forgives us because he paid the price at Calvary. Yes, it's a reason for great joy.

As a matter fact it's a reason for joy that we will rejoice in forever. I think I can safely say this morning that when you're in heaven there will not be one single day you walk down hello Gavin you say you know I had more money in the bank. You have one of the biggest house on the block while your car.

I used to run used to take down the river Willows of the is not guaranteed. You will be say anything about but I tell you what you will be interested in what you we sing about God's Word reveals Revelation chapter 5 verse nine and they sung a new solvent saying that our worthy to take the book open the seals thereof for the Dallas Lane redeemed us to buy the blood out of every kindred, and tongue and people and nation to be second because you understand the anything that you understand now what you were redeemed from redeemed from the curse and penalty of sin redeemed because you belong to Jesus Christ and go to liberty forever and you find a life to live with the whole of the redeemed of all ages, kindred, and nation under heaven singing praise to Jesus Christ, the Lamb that was slain. Then he says you're not your own not free to live as you please.

When we talk about salvation by grace somebody that does understand it will sometimes replies I will affect the case fund saved by grace. It just doesn't matter what we are not your own been bought and paid for. You belong to him and he cares enough about you that when you get out of the way he'd come after you. When you rebel and desolate. You put a lot of correction upon whom the Lord loves he chastens and never and charges pursuant to the receipt yes he will be with us because now not the issue that is uppermost in the minds of multitudes in our culture. I just want to be happy. My concern in all, how many times you tell somebody what God requires. Well, I don't think, not what me to be on the so were just doing what God says about make me unhappy. I'm sure God is like no friends. That doesn't change what God says God is not concerned about her. She's concerned about your holiness and the interesting thing is that when you become hello all you do is become more because the farther you go from God, the deeper you sink in the scene, the worse your condition is different concept concern now is how can I please the Redeemer.

I cannot live after the flesh aspects the subject matter here in first Windsor chapter 9 Paulus Jane 18 first flee fornication is talking specifically about Central Sands the sins of the flesh any sin is to be considered here, but this is particularly what he has reference to & that a man who is without the body, but he that committed fornication set against his own body. What note we not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost bearing than having been purchased by Jesus Christ are not your own. You belonging him to take your body in which the Holy Ghost dwells and give yourself to as the previous part of the passage indicates which of saying the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God and he are not your own for you bought with a price.

Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are the monkey joke in spite of the fact we live in a culture today says as long as it makes you happy as long as it's a lifestyle you choose one department about else and it doesn't matter if you on this been redeemed. It makes a tremendous difference you're no longer your own. Your boat with the price center bought his servant. That means that you are to be surrendered to the Lord Saul of Tarsus was right in the church. He painted the gospel in the name Jesus was on his way to Damascus to put Christians to death.

But God spoke to install Saul my persecutors soundly in his response was, who are mortise and I'm Jesus and I persecutors. It is hard for me to kick against the pricks that's responsible closer to what will file me to only that be the response that springs from Everhart here today will have me. That's all that really counts, et al. it really matters will have me to do you consider what to do about my education. What will have me to do what should I do about my job now admitted to what to do about my marriage but will have to do. This was the concern of the possible, and therefore we can say in Philippians chapter 1 of the 21st verse for it to me to live is Christ and to die is gain. Can you say that today can you say for me to leave is Christ.

For some people to live. It means that they live for money. They live for pleasure. They live with the greedy spirit. They live with anger and resentment. Can you say for me to leave is Christ we are to be humbled and submissive before him. Our greatest desire to be pleasing as prophet Jesus reveals God to us as priest makes the atonement for us as a team we are to be surrendered to him submissive to him in our life. If he will consult about the fact of Jesus Christ being Lord of your life. It probably indicates your heart has not been broken. You have not humbled yourself before because indeed if one sees by nature, rebel by major enmity against God by grace, be submissive to a greater strength possibly happen is that I see him as my Lord and my guy, my Savior, my Redeemer, I want to be surrender to if all the children of Zion to be a master in one great congregation of the day and the question is who Jesus is King Jackson be made, every child of grace which I want.

Jesus is King did you say today I want them. Not only is the Savior muscle was the Lord of my life. It makes a difference how you live, how you spend your time what you read what you look at on television on the Internet where you go, how you use your natural abilities, your time and talents. What you do with your work but you do with the money that God blesses you to receive as a result of your labor to be good a good steward of recording.txt, all before his glory for your ball with the price therefore glorify God in your body. The body itself is to be a living sacrifice wholly acceptable in the God who will listen to the flash, but in everything that you do your to do all to the glory of God the glory of Jesus Christ to have children. What should be your greatest concern, so I want to have children not to be proud of.

I don't have children that all will reach the highest potential possible for the money they make to the profession that they pursue your what your concern audibly.

I will bring up my children the glory of God to bring them up in the nurture and admonition. I consider them to be a gift from God. I want to honor God. As I seek to bring them up.

You're not your own, but with the price. That being the case, when God's people are met together for the Lord be with them. I want to be with other members of the redeemed family. I want to be present to lift up my voice in Saul to praise him. I want to hear his gospel pricks I've heard it many times before to hear the overall story once more tears my heart My spirit I will hear it only hear the gospel preached. I want to be instructed.

I want to grow over to learn more about such redemption took place at Calvary so long ago. Somebody might say what you're describing this morning about the redeemed us wonderful to hear. How could I have some assurance about one of the notes I certainly tremble at the thought of having to stand in the presence of God and give an account for all my sinful actions in life and to think that he would cast me away suffer forever. How could I not been redeemed. Are you center you know your center you convict to diffusely is not just a matter that you grieve over the fact that sin is culture some inconvenience but you have sinned against God and the good news is Romans chapter 5 verse eight but God commended his love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us that the kind of thing Jesus died for Isaac.

I think that will redeem only went to the cross sinners you see yourself to be a shutter.

Secondly, having been convicted of or seen a spirit of repentance displayed in your life. Are you a believer in Jesus Christ. The words of Jesus in John chapter 5 verse 24 verily, verily I say unto you, he that here is my word I believe is on him that sent me everlasting life, and shall not pass into condemnation but is passed from death on the line.

He believes on me hath everlasting life. We believe so. I'm not sure my face, the friends it's not face the Savior's Jesus the Lord, I believe, help that my unbelief but I believe in Jesus on the believes on Jesus as evidence of being one that was purchased ball paying for the cross and one night will be in that multitude. When Jesus present some to the father saying all the children, which was given me in the company account in time of To preserve The power of God on the great day bought with a price. Say today was see myself as a ruin center trust alone is in Jesus. I believe he's redeem and I know I'm not about what the price I want to be identified with the waters of baptism. Today, we are brought to the concluding part of the message entitled ball with a price. How amazing is the grace of God to give an assailant to purchase us by his own blood you would like to get the complete message on CD requested when writing a check Baptist Bible 17 Oak 37th Cincinnati, OH 45217 two next time.
