The Gospel Apprentice

Sermon Notes, Pastor Milton Vincent
April 28, 2012-Cornerstone Fellowship Bible Church

We have studied and exposited Romans 5-8 over the past year and a half.  Now, what then shall we do in response to the Gospel truths, promises, and realities we have learned?

“The Gospel is like a caged lion. It does not need to be defended, it just needs to be let out of its cage.” -Spurgeon

Comparing Romans 7 and 8:

Romans 7: The words, I, my, me are used 47 times. The word “law” is used a total of 22 times. 19 times in reference to the OT law, and 3 times in reference to the law of sin.

If you revolve around the law the best you are ever going to get is “I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing.” (Rom. 7:19)

    I have really admired all writings from Spurgeon ever since my undergraduate days! I am so very much in favor of letting the Gospel out of its cage! The power of the Gospel message is more than sufficient unto the day.

  2. Love his book, “A Gospel Primer!”
