The Christian life is an expression of Christ's sacrifice for us. We need to live like He died
How was it that, two thousand years ago, a handful of uneducated people, with no facilities, and a theology that was still developing were able to, on the day of Pentecost, start a revival that resulted in the entire World learning of Christ.
The sixth in the seven-week evangelistic series by Steve Johnstone, entitled "Seven People, One Saviour". This message is based on the conversion of Zacchaeus and how God's sovereignty reigns over the salvation of His elect.
The church at Colossae had lost sight of what matters most. As Paul gets to the heart of the letter in v15, he starts by restoring their view of Jesus. Yes, they believed in Jesus but they had an inadequate and incomplete view of Jesus and so they had inadequate and incomplete resources to deal with the challenges, questions and struggles they faced as Christians in every day life. They were saying, "Of course, we start with Jesus... but what else do we need?" Col. 1:15-20 gives us a majestic picture of who Jesus is so that he might be restored and re-restored to the place of supremacy in all our lives and so that we would find in Him everything we for all of life.
Pastor Billy Onen preaches about Naaman's healing and his journey from Syria to Israel.
On Monday Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey to the triumphant cheers of a great crowd. On Tuesday Jesus came into the massive Court of the Gentiles at the Temple and threw over tables and chased out those who had turned the House of Prayer into a den of robbers. Today is Wednesday and Jesus returns to the same Court of the Gentiles and as the other Gospel writers tell us Jesus walked through the Temple area teaching and preaching the Gospel, the Gospel of repentance of sin and the righteousness and judgment of God (John 16:8-11). The Temple and all the religious life of the Jewish people were under the authority of the Great Sanhedrin, the Jewish supreme court, the most powerful ruling body in Israel, made up of the chiefs, scribes and elders. These men were revered. They had been ordained and set apart from the rest of the people. They could trace their lineage all the way back to Aaron, the first priest. The Sanhedrin’s roots went back to the 70 elders that Moses put in place to help him rule the people of God. In the most authoritative place, the Temple, and before the most authoritative body in Israel, the Sanhedrin, Jesus was challenged concerning His own authority.
