Part 3 - The Fall and the Restoration
Overview: Restoration in Jesus Christ
The purpose of the law is to reveal sin and lead the way to Christ, who said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." To find salvation man must renounce the lifting up of self that caused him to fall by choosing the way of the cross of Christ. The answer to the rebellion of fallen man's heart, soul, mind, and strength is found in Christ. The foundation of a restored relationship with God is rest in the person and work of Christ (the Way). Upon this foundation sits faith in Christ (the Truth) and a life lived in Christ (the Life) by the Holy Spirit. These three aspects form the all-encompassing aspect of the lordship of Christ.
