The Human Response:  The Human Response studying the basics of Christian belief Scripture taken from the HOLY BIBLE, NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION® Copy right © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society The Bible in a Nutshell:  The Bible in a Nutshell For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. John 3.16 In Luke 15, Jesus tells a story about a father…:  In Luke 15, Jesus tells a story about a father… His youngest son asks for share of the inheritance The son squanders his inheritance The son finds himself living w/ pigs The son returns to the Father The father runs out to meet his son The example of Acts 2.37-41:  The example of Acts 2.37-41 Peter preached that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead. The people were “cut to the heart” (v. 37) and asked Peter what they should do. The example of Acts 2.37-41:  The example of Acts 2.37-41 Peter said, “Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off–for all whom the Lord our God will call.” (Vv. 38-39) FAITH:  FAITH The people who heard Peter believed what he had said. …they were “cut to the heart” FAITH:  FAITH Hebrews 11.6 “Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” FAITH:  FAITH Faith begins with an acceptance of a truth. Trust is where spiritual faith goes beyond mental consent. Belief and trust must lead to obedience. FAITH:  FAITH Genuine faith produces repentance in the life and character of the believer. REPENTANCE:  REPENTANCE In Acts 2, upon hearing Peter’s sermon, the people were “cut to the heart.” Peter told them to repent. REPENTANCE:  REPENTANCE Repentance is not the conviction one has about his/her sinfulness, but what one resolves to do about it. REPENTANCE:  REPENTANCE Zacchaeus: “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” (Luke 19.8) REPENTANCE:  REPENTANCE Faith and repentance find their public expression in baptism. BAPTISM:  BAPTISM In Acts 2, “those who accepted Peter’s message were baptized.” They were immersed in water. BAPTISM:  BAPTISM Baptism is a confession of faith. Baptism is symbolic of repentance. Baptism represents a joining in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. BAPTISM:  BAPTISM Romans 6.3-4 “Didn’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Jesus was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” BAPTISM:  BAPTISM At baptism… …God forgives sins. …God gives the Spirit. …God places one within the church. Have you responded to the love of God?:  Have you responded to the love of God? You must have faith. You must repent. You must be baptized.
