Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Sermon Notes from "Where Angels Long to Look: Salvation Foretold by Prophets and Fulfilled by Christ." Sermon by Mitch Chase.

[From the 10:45AM worship service this morning at Kosmosdale Baptist Church.]

1 Peter 1:10-12.

I. Introduction

A. The easy road is not always the most desirable, especially when the journey itself is important.

B. OT prophets prophesied about the salvation that was to come in Christ to us.

II. Inquiry of the OT Prophets

A. OT prophets had a sense that there was something more than what they could understand.

B. OT prophets were not merely disinterested vessels through which revelation came, but they were keenly interested in the subject of their prophecy.

C. OT prophets demonstrated an understanding that they were looking for something more and greater.

III. Revelation to the OT Prophets

A. OT prophets foretold Christ's passion and subsequent glory.

B. OT prophets were ultimately serving us:
1. Not that they were not also serving the people of their time;
2. We should consider ourselves to have been placed in a privileged position.

C. OT prophets prophesied by the Spirit, who now empowers preachers in proclaiming the gospel.

IV. Results

A. Angels marvel at God's salvation.

B. Believers' suffering will give way to glory.
