When God Gets a Hold of Your Life
The Parable of the Sower can give a sense of being stuck in the fate and environment that you find yourself in. But God who created perfect Eden, is an excellent gardener.
Sermon #24 from the "God with Us" series. Scripture from John 20.
To many people these days the idea of a religion based around a resurrected savior — whom many mock as "Zombie Jesus" — seems odd, weird. Yes, Jesus' resurrection was odd, but so was Jesus himself. And we're weird for believing it. However, the story of Jesus' birth, life, death & resurrection is both too weird to be made up AND just weird enough to be true.
Why do we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday? What's the big deal? Isn't it enough that we study His teachings? Find out why His teachings were not enough....
The story of the Christian faith hinges on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Looking at true faith, faith with works.
We celebrated Easter this week by continuing our Field of Dreams series. The focus this week was on living lives that see things as God sees them.
We return to the Gospel of John today. Although today is Easter and before us this morning is a very “Easter” text, the message this morning is part of a series of messages that have occupied our attention for several weeks. We began this year considering the 7 miracles of Jesus as told by John. Now, we are considering the 7 “I Am” statements of John. Seven times, John records Jesus proclaiming Himself with the introductory formula “I am.” We have considered the statement “I am the bread of life.” We said that just as bread sustains our lives physically, Jesus proclaimed Himself to be the One that sustains us spiritually and eternally. We have considered the statement, “I am the light of the world.” This statement gives us a radical claim (I am the light of the world) which calls us to a radical discipleship (anyone who follows me will never walk in the darkness) which guarantees for us a radical promise (but will have the light of life). Then, there were the statements, “I am the door” and “I am the Good Shepherd” that point to Jesus being the only way to salvation. We are learning that these “I am” statements change who we are. The same is true today.
