Dear Everyone, There is a further opportunity for us to dialog over this by a document uploaded by Trevor at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/11VNeUivRYpxS0neebeBsUoh3XqDx32QRWaimrJl-RVA/edit?ts=563be1b4 I have decided to limit my markup to what Dr Piper raised in the LAB. For I find there is so much to explore that just on basis of time alone, I need to confine the work. So together with the linked document above, the notes below are confined mainly to what Dr. Piper raised. j Characters The Elect Exiles God the Father Christ The Elect Exiles (Green rectangle and highlight) They call God "Father"v.17 They live in a time of temporary residence v.17 They are commanded to live out in reverence, fear. v.17 They were ransomed v.18 Ransomed from the empty way of life from forefathers v.18 This ransom was not by temporary things like silver or gold v.18 But by the precious blood of Christ v.19 They know about this deliverance, and how the blood of Christ is more precious than silver or gold v.18 Questions/Thoughts How are the elect exiles to live with the great, wonderful, welcoming love of God, and by the blood of Christ, yet do so in fear? How are they to live in this tension? See below, key terms, phrases and concepts. Summary The elect exiles are to live out their temporary lives in fear and reverence, taking care of their conduct. They are to do so by honouring, respecting, treasuring and not trashing the love of God the Father, or the sacrifice of Christ. God the Father (Blue rectangle and highlight) God is the ultimate Fatherv.17 He is also a judge v.17 He judges deeds impartially v.17 He judges according to, i.e. corresponding to, deeds; not on the basis of deeds (see key terms, phrases and concepts below) Questions/Thoughts God is both a Father, which has positive accepting ideas, and a Judge, which has negative, punitive ideas. This is a tension. How are to relate to God with this tension? See below under key terms, phrases and concepts. Summary God is the Father and the Judge. He judges impartially, without respect of persons. He judges corresponding to deeds not on the basis of deeds. Christ (Red rectangle and highlight) Christ sacrifice is like the OT unblemished and spotless lamb v.19 Christ's blood (i.e. His sacrifice unto death) is precious v.19 His blood is more valuable than silver or gold (elements that are considered most precious in the world at that time, and somewhat today too) v.19 This sacrifice is more effective than silver or gold in ransoming lives from futility v.18 Questions/Thoughts How much do I treasure Christ's sacrifice? More than the wealth of this world? Summary Christ died a death like the OT sacrificial lamb, a lamb that was unblemished and spotless. This sacrifice is more valuable than silver and gold, and more effect in ransoming the elect exiles from a hopeless way of life. Key Terms, phrases, concepts "Fear" Cross References: Matthew 16:27 : fear because God will repay Romans 2:6–7 : (see 1 Peter 1:7 ) judgement renders eternal life. Good deeds done in pursuit of glory, honour and immortality Romans 11:20 : fear is to drive us to faith, not anxious toiling 2 Corinthians 5:10–11 : fear because of the judgement to come Philippians 2:12–13 : fear because God is in us, majesty and power in us eliciting fear and trembling Galatians 5:21 : things that believers (professing) do that can exclude from the kingdom. So fear doing these works of the flesh. Hebrews 12:14 : positive of fear - strive for a holiness we must have, Summary: We are to fear with regards to several considerations: fear God because He does judge, He will repay, and the judgement affects eternal life. We are also to fear God because the God dwells in us, and it is that reverential fear of such a great, mighty and awesome presence being so in us. This fear is not to drive us to anxious doing, but to faith, and a striving for a holiness that we must have. "According to. . .works" as opposed to "on the basis of" i.e. a certain correspondence to the works Matthew 16:27 : Son of Man to repay each person, according to what he has done Romans 2:6-7 : we don't earn it, it accords with, corresponds with 1 Peter 1:17 : according to each one's work, not on the basis of works. That is, in correspondence to. Hebrews 12:14 : strive for a holiness we must have, seeing the LORD accords with this Summary: God's judgements are corresponding to, according to works or deeds. This is not judgements on the basis of deeds. This means that there is a taking into account, with respect to, the deeds - our actions and attitudes. There is then quite possibly a sense that these actions, attitudes, reveal how we view God and His salvation. If we "trash" it as Dr. Piper says, then God's judgements takes into account that we did not truly receive or value the significance of His salvation rightly to begin with. We are to fear then "trashing" God, considering His great salvation as nothing. Therefore: we are to. . . fear treating the Fatherhood of God and blood of Christ as trash. We trash these by aligning, doing, treasuring sin - the very thing that God went to great lengths to save us from. By trashing the work of God, we disrespect Him, we reject Him, we put ourselves out of the kingdom. Take-away I would like to value and respect and receive God's Fatherhood, Judgehood, Salvation and the Blood of Christ. By rightly fearing God, I fear sin and doing fleshly deeds. I would also be driven to faith, that by faith in God and His Word, I am able to do deeds for the purpose of honour, glory and immortality. Thus I strive for holiness, but not by my strength but by God's grace.
