May Jesus Christ be Praised - Part 2

THE PROCLAMATION OF PRAISE            Page 3
V.12 (cont'd.)

** What do the two groups have in common?

"...the same Lord is Lord of all..." Jesus Christ is Lord over all of His creation, no matter how many ways that creation tries to distinguish itself.
cf. Deuteronomy 10:17, Acts 10:34-35, Galatians 3:28, Ephesians 6:9, Romans 2:11

** What is the one thing that all mankind has in common?

Romans 3:23 - We are all sinners, who need Christ!

** How does Jesus want to respond to us?

He wants to be "abounding in riches" toward us. cf. Ephesians 1:3

** What is the only requirement for receiving those riches?

"...for all who call upon Him..."

** What is that phrase synonymous with?

Salvation! Being born-again by the Holy Spirit, to eternal life in Jesus Christ. Calling upon the Lord as our only means of redemption and deliverance from the consequences of sin.
Remember Acts 4:12!

V.13 ** How do we know that anyone who relies upon Jesus Christ for salvation, will be saved?

Scripture guarantees it! cf. Joel 2:32, Acts 2:21

V.14 ** How does this profound Biblical truth establish the need for our "Proclamation of Praise"?

For someone to "call upon the Lord", they must believe in Him. Before they can believe in Him, they must have heard about Him. In order for them to hear, someone must "proclaim" the truth about Jesus Christ to them.

Paul uses the word "kerusso", translated here as preacher, which literally means "to be a herald" or to "proclaim".
