Week 5, Day 4

Message 5: The Fall of Man and Man’s Need of Salvation

II. Man’s need of salvation
A. The objective problem before God:
1. The word “objective” means something having to do with us but outside of us.
2. When man sinned against God he began to have a sinful case before God.
3. In the eyes of God, there are only two men in the universe––Adam and Christ—
1 Cor. 15:22, 45
4. Our objective problem before God is not a matter of what we have done, but rather a matter of whether we are in Adam or in Christ—1 Cor. 15:22

1 Corinthians 15:22 For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.

1 Corinthians 15:45 So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul”; the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit.


Read over the outline points and verses above and use these for your prayer to spend time with the Lord in the Word in the morning. After your prayer time, jot down in your notebook one or two things that the Lord touched you with.
