Why We Can Trust God

This outline helps every believer to remember that no matter what they face in this life that they can trust the Lord! We draw our proof of this as we examine some of the ramifications of the sixth of Jesus’ seven cries from the cross.

Introduction:
•    We find in our text verse (#30) Jesus’ 6th of seven cries from His cross.
•    The three little words, “IT IS FINISHED” are an entrance into a mountain range of truth about what Christ did for us!
•    Much could be said about this text. Time simply will not allow us to explore all that we could.
•    I do want to pull a golden nugget from the application of this verse!

Transition:

•    When I read this text, I find a nugget of truth of the fact that I can trust God!

Proposition: There are numerous reasons I could share as to why we can trust God, but we will only mention three.

I.    Our Text Teaches Us That God Is A Man Of His Word!

(Titus 1:2Titus 1:2
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; In: or, For

A.    All of the OT types that prefigured Christ are fulfilled. All of the OT prophesies are fulfilled. All of what was promised in Christ’s coming is fulfilled!

(Daniel 9:24Daniel 9:24
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. finish: or, restrain make an...: or, seal up prophecy: Heb. prophet

B.    Jesus, God Lamb, took away man’s sins as John the Baptist proclaimed.

(John 1:29John 1:29
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. taketh away: or, beareth

II.    Our Text Teaches Us That God’s Way Of Salvation Is Completely Effective!

A.    What Jesus did was enough and need not be looked at as just a portion or a small part of man’s redemption. It is completely sufficient enough to effectively save a man and fit him for Heaven.

B.    It is so effective that it is the only means of redemption and Salvation!

(John 14:6John 14:6
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

(Matthew 7:13-21Matthew 7:13-21
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: strait: or, narrow 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Because: or, How 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

C.    In the verses we just read we see that Jesus took great pains to make it plain that we should come the right way to God because of the false witnesses of the truth!

III.    Our Text Along With Our Salvation Experience Proves To Us That We Can Trust God For Anything!

A.    I believe that being saved it the absolutely most important need anyone has.

B.    If we can reside in the harbor of God’s effective salvation, through the work of Jesus, then we can trust Him for anything!

(Proverbs 3:5-6Proverbs 3:5-6
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Conclusion:

•    Trust God!
