Sermons about Cross
Today, we consider the importance of being reconciled in our relationship with God. Do we even need to be reconciled? How can we be reconciled, and what difference does this make? In this message, we will consider these very questions.
Having been told to go back to Bethel and engage in the right worship of God, Jacob leads his household in this worship and then journey's on. The second part of Genesis 35, though, mentions three events that reveal the truth that even though Yahweh has promised fulfillment of his covenant with Abraham and his descendants, and even though this fulfillment is in the midst of taking place, nonetheless it takes place in the midst of certain kinds of failures. It is this union of fulfillment and failure that marks the life of God's people now as they journey on toward the final fulfillment in the New Heavens and New Earth. What lessons do we learn from these failures mentioned in this text and their union with God's fulfillment of his promises?

Why then was Christ buried? Why does Paul say it is of first importance? How does Christ’s burial comfort the believer? What blessings are given to us to enjoy?

How can we better make use of and celebrate Christ’s burial for our benefit? How does frequent meditation on His burial motivate and form our faith on a daily basis? I want to give you seven truths concerning Christ’s burial, which highlight its paramount importance for our faith and the gospel blessings that it sets forth for us to enjoy.
Our risen Lord is with us even when we don’t recognize it. This should be a huge source of relief and peace for us.
