Solid Foundations- Study 1 Problem Solved
Solid Foundations ~Leaders notes
Welcome on your journey of building a solid foundation in your life journey with God.
When building a house, or any building for that matter, there is one thing that will help establish how
long the building will survive- foundations. The Bible gives a parable about the wise and the foolish
builder (you can READ the story in Matthew chapter 7 verses 24-29). The foolish builder built on sand,
his house collapsed. The wise builder is the one who had a solid foundation. Wh en the winds and floods
came, his house stood.
It is the same with your life. You need to spend time on the foundations so that you can have what it
takes to continue to stand, even when floods of adversity and winds of trouble come against you.
The problem
If you were flying across one of the great oceans of this earth, and someone came up to you and said, “I
know you have a long flight, but you should wear this back pack during the whole flight.”
Now you may put it on. But after little while the pack will seem heavy, even uncomfortable. You will be
tempted to take it off so that you can get comfortable and get some rest.
However, if the flight assistant says, “This plane is in trouble and very soon
everyone is going to need to use this parachute to jump out of the plane to safety.
There is a boat below & rescuers are on their way. Wait for the signal and we will
call you to come and jump.”
You would not be thinking how heavy the pack is! You would know it is the answer
to your problem. You just want to be ready.
It is only as you recognise your problem with sin and its consequence, that you can truly appreciate the
solution Jesus provides.
The problem of sin
The problem of sin is understood as we recognise something about God.
What does 1 Peter 1:15,16 say about God?15 but as He who called you is holy, you also
be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”
God is a holy God and can have no relationship with sin. The problem is that ever since Adam & Eve
sinned (sin entered humanity), humans have had a problem with sin.
To have a relationship with God, we need to be right with him. The problem is that we fall short of God’s
standard. In short, God’s standard is his 10 Commandments. Measuring yourself up against the
standard of his law (his Commandments) brings us to a place of realising that we have broken God’s law,
his standards. We are found guilty before God.
What does the Bible say about sin? Romans 3:23For all have sinned; all fall short of
God’s glorious standard

The penalty
What is the penalty (or wage) of sin? Roman 6:23For the wages of sin is death, but the free
gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Sin is ugly
The Bible says we have a sinful nature
What does Gal 5:19-21 say about our sinful nature?
Anyone living that sort of
life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
The Bible says that Jesus is our judge and legally we are found guilty of sin.
You will be judged before God
God will judge every person one day. We have all fallen short of God’s standard. We have all broken his
Law and will be found guilty. The guilty must pay a penalty, that is eternity in Hell.BUT Jesus stepped
in and paidyo u r penalty for you.(Now that statement alone should produce a loud cheer as we let that
reality sink in).
Gal 5:19-21Whe n you follow the desires of your sinful nature, your lives will produce these evil
results: sexual immorality, impure thoughts, eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, participation in
demonic activities, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, divisions, the
feeling that everyone is wrong except those in your own little group, envy, drunkenness, wild parties,
and other kinds of sin. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not
inherit the Kin dom o God.N LT
People try all kinds of things
To try to reach/ please God.
God hates sin.
Sin separates us from God

Judge paid penalty!
Jesus, the Judge, decided He did not want humanity to die and be separated from God. He said, “I don’t
want (
insert YOUR name! ) to die and spend eternity in hell. I will pay the penalty for their sin. I will
die as (
insert YOUR name!) so that he / she will not have to pay the penalty for their sin.”
What does Gal 1:3-5 say that Jesus did? (see Vs 4)
He died for our sins
, just as God our Father planned,
in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we
live. That is why all glory belongs to God through
all the ages of eternity. Amen.NL T
Repentance & Dealing with the ugly
Jesus died on the cross, was buried and rose again!
He paid the penalty for our sin
When you repent, you turn around from one direction to the opposite direction. Repentance involves
your thoughts, your mouth and your actions.
Repentance IS something that changes you. It is realising that you’ve missed thema rk- God’s mark.
Your sin makes you think in a way, and live in a way, that is short of God’s standard. Repentance needs
to happen as part of any person’s salvation experience. Jesus died for your sin past, present and future.
Repentance is you being repositioned to the place God intended you to live at. You become a clean and
forgiven child of the King.
What does Jesus offer all who turn to him? Luke 24: 46, 47
JesusFO RGIVE S us. We receive freedom
from the penalty. We can now be in
relationshi with him.
We each need toRE P E NT of our sinful
nature. Acknowledge your sin and ask
for forgiveness.
Gal 1: 3-5
3Grace and peace to you from
God our Father and the Lord
Jesus Christ,4who gave himself
for our sins to rescue us from
the present evil age, according to
the will of our God and Father,5to
whom be glory for ever and ever.
