Sermons about Blood
This Easter Sunday we celebrate that Christ is risen! Pastor Tim Osborn speaks from Romans 1:16-17 as we begin a new series called "Blood, Sweat, and Tears."
Imagine two thousand years earlier, the dusty, dirty streets of Jerusalem during Passover. Tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of sheep slain, blood smeared on the door posts and door frames. Blood pouring from the altar in the temple. The warm Mediterranean sun beating down, none of the sanitary conditions we know today, no sewers, no water to wash everything away. We think the dairy air around Lynden gets a bit strong sometimes, but imagine back then. Let your mind stretch back even farther, back over the previous 1500 years, animal sacrifices of every kind being offered morning, noon and night every day, 365 days a year for the past one and a half millennia. The ground literally saturated with rivers of blood that never ceased to flow. You could never escape the stench, it was always in your nostrils.
He is the central figure of Christianity. He is the greatest teacher, the most gifted leader, and the wisest man who ever lived. Like a golden thread, one theme runs through the life of Jesus Christ. It’s the primary focus of his words, his actions and his relationships. It’s his passion. Do you know what it is? If you want to have a relationship with God, you have to know Jesus. If you want to know Jesus, you have to understand what’s important to him. Join us for Kingdom Come, as we dive into the Gospel of Mark to understand the significance of the Kingdom of God in our lives here and now.
Don’t let the past sin have more power than the blood.
After the un-creation of the corrupted and violent world, God re-creates it with Noah as the new Adam. God blesses and feeds Noah, just like He did Adam. He then establishes a new way that He will relate to the re-created world; a promise or covenant. In Jesus, God has established a new and redemptive way that He relates to us and us to the world.
Jesus said to eat my flesh and drink my blood? Are you serious? Who in the world would do that? If we are not going to follow Jesus then who or what will you follow?
God was there on Friday when the gunman murdered 20 children in Newtown, CT. But he sacrificed his own son on a cross in Jerusalem 2000 years ago and that brings us hope.
The purpose and origin of the Lord's Supper.
