SPF 180: Devoted to Christ & The Myth of Secularism

RC Sproul is famous for saying sin is cosmic treason. Every person under their fallen nature is not only estranged from God by at war with Him. Thanks be to God, He has made a way for us to be reconciled back to Him. Today I am sharing what an acceptable sacrifice was under the Old Covenant, how Christ atones for our sin, and how to prove faithful in our devotion to Christ.

Romans 3:35 AMP

“whom God displayed publicly [before the eyes of the world] as a [life-giving] [a]sacrifice of atonement and reconciliation (propitiation) by His blood [to be received] through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness [which demands punishment for sin], because in His forbearance [His deliberate restraint] He passed over the sins previously committed [before Jesus’ crucifixion].”

Atonement is necessary.

Leviticus 22

Atoning Sacrifices:

  1. an offering

  2. male

  3. without blemish

Sin in scripture is described as being at enmity with God – that He is our enemy. And we are His. “In our fallen humanity our most formidable foe and enemy is God himself. There is no being in the universe we have created more hostility with than our Creator.” – Sproul

RC Sproul is famous for his quote that “Sin is comic treason.” Sin is an act of betrayal against the authority that made us; we violate the rule given by the king of the cosmos. But we are so used to sinning that we rarely grasp the gravity of defying God. There is a refusal to conform to His law. – Sproul

If we refused once, we need atonement.

What is the one thing required before this reconciliation? Estrangement. If we were not estranged from God, we would not need to be reconciled back. But every person is estranged and every person needs reconciliation.

This acceptable offering makes me accepted before God. Not just tolerable – accepted, welcomed, a daughter.

The perfect offing made for devoted people.

Devoted To Christ

  1. Keep the commandments – this means to watch over and guard

  2. Do the commandments – are we obeying them

  3. Do not profane God’s name
