The "Babytalk Gospel"

Here is the Gospel in six statements from this morning in the sermon on Isaiah 28:1-13

i. There is only one true God who made the world and everything in it including us
ii. We brought sin into the world through our first father and every single person who followed him
iii. Because of our sin we have earned God’s wrath and maimed the world.
iv. Jesus came as our rescuing king to pay the price for our sin, live a perfect life as our representative and begin to set the world straight
v. One day (soon in God time) Jesus will return to finish out his work
vi. We receive rescue and become part of the rescue plan when we quit trying to rescue ourselves, trust Jesus to do it for us, and follow him away from our old lives of self reliance and sin.
