1000 New Beginnings, The Gospel of Mark The Gospel Steps Forward Mark 1:1-20 A new era has dawned. John the Baptist warns that God’s judgment and the Messiah are burning toward earth like a meteor, and thousands of unnerved, hopeful people line up for baptism. Then Jesus appears. John baptizes him and it’s as if Heaven floods Earth. Jesus is ready to call his disciples, form his tribe, and change the world, but first God subjects him to a 40-day wilderness test. In the badlands, Satan calls Jesus’ number and the Messiah steps into the ring to battle the devil.
Don't let naysayers distract you from God's purpose for your life. Remember, praisers don't have to fight. Hold your peace. Don't think about it. Praise God and let him fight your battles! God is going to intercept all the Devil's evil plans and turn them around for your benefit.
Test #7: The Christian and Pride, part 2
Rejection of Jesus Christ is not intellectual, philosophical, or evidential; it is spiritual and moral. Has it ever struck you as amazing that Israel’s leaders were dumbfounded with the wisdom of Christ, people were amazed at the miracles, the prophets shouted with unified voice and epitomized in John the Baptist: this is the One; this is the Christ, the Messiah. Yet, He was largely rejected and is today ... 2 Amazing displays of Christ’s glory & grace, and man’s rejection to cause us to worship and fear. (1) Amazing Display of Christ’s Glory, Grace, & Authority;(2) Amazing Display of Man’s Sin, Unbelief, & Rejection
Listen to hear the reason the Son of God came to live on Earth.
How does the birth of Jesus give us hope?
Evil Inside? (The Answer) Reconnect – November 21 2010 Text: Romans 7:14-8:4; Romans 5:6-11 Key Thought: Experiencing God’s forgiveness in our own lives makes us part of His response to evil. So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. (Romans 8:1-2, NLT)
Evil Inside? (The devil made me do it...) Reconnect – November 14 2010 Text: John 8:31-47, Ephesians 4:17-27 Key Thought: A close connection with God and his people lets us successfully see through the devil’s lies. Jesus told them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, because I have come to you from God. I am not here on my own, but he sent me. Why can’t you understand what I am saying? It’s because you can’t even hear me! For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies. So when I tell the truth, you just naturally don’t believe me! (John 8:42-45, NLT)
Evil Inside? Temptation Reconnect – November 7 2010 Key Thought: While avoiding temptation makes life a lot easier, remember we all make mistakes. That is why God offers us forgiveness. These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age. If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. I Corinthians 10:11-13, NLT
Evil Inside? Who’s Bad? Reconnect – Hallowe’en 2010 Text: Romans 5:12-21, James 1:12-17 Key Thought: The reality of evil both around us and in us must push us to the grace and mercy of God. When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned... But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought to death to the many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to the many through this other man, Jesus Christ. And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins. For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over the many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.
