As Christians, our confidence centers on the gospel of Jesus Christ. As the author of Hebrews states, “we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus” (Heb. 10:19). As a result, we can “draw near to the throne of grace” with boldness and confidence (Heb. 4:16). Apart from Christ, we have no standing before God. Our sins condemn us. But if we trust in Christ alone for our salvation, we can be confident in knowing that our standing before God is secure. In this session, Dr. Thomas expounds upon our confidence in the gospel.
Children often tease one another by calling each other babies. No child, or adult for that matter, wants to be labeled as a baby. As insulting as that may be to us, the author of Hebrews chose that very word to describe the spiritual maturity level of his immediate audience, and by extension, that same assessment applies to many in the church today. But there is hope. In this message, R.C. Sproul teaches us the Scriptural remedy for spiritual immaturity.
