Jesus Takes The Dirt
Looking at the intersection of the most terrific person, Jesus Christ, and the most tragic person, Judas Iscariot... we learn 9 lessons essential to being a Christ follower.
The Brand Mark of Men
We are given an impression from an overview of the Bible that if we walked into a Christian church we would see masculinity and masculine men. But it is not this way.
Why? And how do we become the Godly we have been created to be?
Biblical Masculinity and fatherhood.
The problem with Christians in America is not that Christians aren't where we should be. The problem is that we’re not what we should be right where we are. Why is this? We haven’t a clue as to our identity. This sermon is relevant to discussions hitting the front lines of the church today, such as sexual identity.
God, He Loves US!
"What I think about me"... "What people or the culture thinks about me"... all revolve around this little word “do.” We tend to think and we tend to operate emotionally as if God looks at me through the lens and the filter of what I do. But what if that's wrong? What if God operates on a completely different system, a completely different economy of relationships, a completely different scale.
We might be wrong about God's love. What if God doesn't love us the way we love us?
Jesus! Get off your Donkey now!
In the calendar of the Christian Church this is known as Palm Sunday. Some speak of our Lord’s entry into Jerusalem as a tragic entry. His entry was one of indescribable sadness if we consider the highlights of Jesus’ ministry and the surrounding situation. It was a very, very sad entry. Although a picture of indescribable sadness, it’s an event that moves into indescribable joy. This is why we normally speak of our Lord’s entry into Jerusalem as a triumphal entry.
Learn 6 key principles that will lead you into a deeper love of Christ and His sacrifice.
BREAKFAST with JESUS
This first-person sermon is given over Peter's life and his interactions with Jesus. The narrative reveals the incredible transformation of Peter and the possible feelings he felt as he walked with Jesus.
Some question the Lordship of Jesus. They are curious about it. In fact, some convinced people will question Jesus. It may be out of rebellion or in moments of weakness and despair, but the questions arise. Where is Jesus? Why isn’t he getting with the program? Why did Jesus allow this in my life? I don’t understand Jesus! Why isn’t he answering me or fulfilling my desire? What we need to remember is that honest questions never disappoint God. The question of the Messiahship of Jesus is worth asking and God finds our question worth answering because our response to God’s response about Jesus shows us where you are in your walk with God. Are you careless, curious, merely convinced, or committed?
The Tale of Two Spirits
Today, there are many people making sacrifices, but many are not making the right ones. No matter what sacrifices for self-sufficiency they make, or what costs of earnings they that have in their presence to purchase worth, all people end up in the ruins of sufferance, not significance. People are still enslaved to their disappointments and fears.
Paul wrote, “For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, ‘Abba! Father!’” (Rom 8:15).
The parable of the prodigal son characterizes the words of Jesus and Paul. It is the tale of two spirits. One of compassion. One of sacrifice. A spirit of adoption. A spirit of slavery.
Applying a visible solution to a invisible problem doesn’t fix the problem. In fact, it makes it worst. We apply physical solutions to spiritual problems all the time. What we need to know is how to be able “to stand against the schemes of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11). Why do we need to know something spiritual instead of something physical, when our problem appears to be physical? The Bible tells us, the problem isn’t physical.
Enter with THANKSGIVING!
The Bible says He is a powerful God, He is not to be fooled with. He is not to be trifled with. He is God, he incredible, you don’t just run up to God in anyway you want, he is in a class all by himself, because he transcends all classes. You don’t just run up to God as if he is just anybody. This generation is so use to just running up to anybody, we just think that we should have access to just everybody, but in scripture you just don’t approach God in any kind of way.
But David learns something about God. In a rule that required the blood of bulls and goats, and smoke, and ceremonial cleansing and washings. David found a spot in God, that would enable him to come before God, without bull, without goat, without blood, without sacrifice, without smoke, without ceremonial cleansing, his hands were dirty, nothing had been sacrificed, and he made it all the way in the presence of God, without being killed!In an entrance psalm met for private and public worship, David tells us how he did it…
