Envy is the greatest of the seven deadly sins. It is hidden and deceptive, but powerful. In fact, envy is the first sin after Adam and Eve’s first sin. But with contentment, there is great gain, the apostle Paul says. As we identify and root out comparison in our lives, freedom and joy can grow.
This is the first message in a seven-part series that explores the seven deadly sins and their biblical antidotes. This opening sermon delves into pride, both our human view of pride and God’s perspective. The message then moves on to indicate how Christ’s example of humility motivates us to transform our hearts and move from pride to humility.
When Jesus uttered “It is finished” from the cross, it signified that He had been faithful to accomplish a task that He was sent to do. This message examines the implications of Jesus’ work, and how it propels us to be able to say along with Jesus, “Into your hands I commit my spirit”.
Today we are looking at a very short saying from Jesus while he was on the cross: “I am thirsty.” What seems like a simple request is actually a phrase that is packed with so much theology, history and meaning that once uncovered, we can clearly see how passionate Jesus was to fulfil his mission here on earth. I hope you are as intrigued and moved as I have been as we study this passage together today.

The words of Christ from the cross are incredibly insightful. Amid the seven phrases he uttered are words of deep theology and practical help for us who follow Him. While skies go dark for three hours, the Saviour realises for the only time in his life how devastating separation from God is. Lots for us to learn in this scene from the cross.
