The following is Part 13 of the transcript of the sermon by Pastor Paul White titled “Between the Pieces: What Really Happened at the Cross”. Check back each day as we continue to post the transcript to this exciting sermon.
Peter would say this, “You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood.”
Paul would say in Galatians, “Those of you who be of the seed of Abraham, those of you who be of Christ are Abraham’s seed.”
I’m not talking about Jews over Gentiles or Israel over you. I’m talking about you that are in Christ. You are God’s chosen one. You are God’s preferred seed. He’s not got His eyes on a piece of property on the other side of the globe. He’s got His eyes on you. You’re the seed of God that He’s interested in. A seed shall serve Him. And that seed shall be counted to the Lord as a generation.
“They shall come. They’re not here yet, but they are coming.”
What are they called? Midland. They’re called you. Not just Midland, but those sitting here; you’re part of it. They shall come, and they shall declare His righteousness to a people that have not yet been born that He has died on that cross, and His hands and His feet have been pierced and His heart has exploded like wax. And the dogs wag their tongues at Him. Somebody’s going to go tell the world that God is righteous and that Jesus died on the cross. Church, don’t you want to be that person?
“They shall declare His righteousness unto a people that have not been born yet.”
God is righteous every time. When someone believes on Jesus, God proves He’s righteous because He says, “You’re righteous now.”
But Lord, I haven’t done good things.
“I don’t judge you based on what you do. I’ve judged my Son. My Son has paid for your sin, thus I call you good.”
