    More Sermon Details:   
    When Jesus told the Pharisees that He came to call not the righteous, but sinners to repentence, He did not mean to suggest that the Pharisees were indeed righteous. Indeed, Christ often excoriated them for their hypocrisy and unrighteousness.

    The Scriptures are crystal clear: whoever looks to or recites his own good deeds as playing any part in his salvation, that person is bound for eternal judgment.

    That is because none of our righteousness is pleasing to God, for it is all just filthy rags in His sight.

    Thus, Paul proclaims that the addition of any so-called good works actually nullifies the work of Christ, and makes it of no effect at all! Indeed, to "fall from grace" is not to fall into sin, but rather it is to seek to obtain righteousness by good deeds!

    Instead, righteousness is imputed to wicked men who trust in the blood of Jesus alone. God does not convert such sinners into righteous men, but instead refuses to count our sins against us, because they have been judged in the body of Jesus at Calvary.

    The Lord Jesus Himself taught that the truly righteous man does not display his good deeds before God in the judgment.

    Coming to Jesus with loads of good works means nothing, because they are not good enough. But coming to Him with nothing and trusting in His goodness and grace means salvation forever!

    Jesus solemnly warned that a "good man" is still lost in his sin, while a wicked sinner who confesses his sin and calls upon God for mercy is then and there found completely without fault before a holy God!

    When Jesus said He came to save sinners, He was warning all the "good people" that they are on their own. They have no part in Christ.
