Sermons about Raised
In this message we cover the idea of living our lives in the light of our position in Christ. We should desire to follow Him and obey Him because of what He has done for us. Our position in Christ should motivate us to follow and obey.
Ronnie takes us through the Hope of Christ based on 1 Corinthians 15. The gospel is the good news message about salvation in Jesus Christ. If Christ has not been raised then all we do is absurd. The dawning of a new day has arrived because He has been raised. What we believe about God's tomorrow radically shapes our today
God will miraculously transform our mortal bodies to be just like Jesus’ resurrected body. Death occurs in one form to release new life in another form. God’s not restricted as to what kind of body He can create. Resurrection is not a “make over;” but a total transformation into the image of Jesus.
You were as dead as He was dead but In Christ you are alive as He is alive.
There is a real spiritual union between Jesus and his covenant children, the true Church. The apostle Paul explains in various places--Romans 6, Ephesians 1 & 2 as well as Colossians 2 & 3--that what takes place with Jesus also takes place with all his true covenant children because they are united to him. This is the organic root of all that takes place from the beginning of the Christians salvation all the way to its final consummation that results in a glorified new body and soul in the New Heavens and New Earth. To live as the church and as individual Christians we must recognize that because we have been raised from the spiritual dead we not only will eventually be raised from the physical dead, but also have now resurrection power to live in increasing obedience to the Lord Jesus. This only takes place, according to Paul in Colossians 3:1-11, as we think according to right doctrine and fulfill our relational duties.
in ezekiel 37 we see a vision of a vally of dry bones, representing the nation of israel, dead in evrey way by their own sins, by the ins of their children, by the sins of their fathers, by the sins of their kinds, by sins of their priest. The haunting question is posed by the Lord of the prophet Ezekiel: "Son of Man, can these bones live?". The prophet answers - "O Lord God, You alone know" the Lord hears the mustard seed of faith in his prophets response and says to him: Prophesy over these bones and say to them: "o dry bones, hear the wrod of the Lord" say to them ' o dry bones, hear the word of the Lord'. Six centuriers later, Jesus comes to the town of Bethany - fulfilling this prophecy for the nation in his consistent, intimate and personl fashion. saying to in essence to martha and mary as he said centuries earlier to the prophet Ezekiel: Can these bones live? John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
