Sermons about Redeemer
Christ is all. He created it all and sustains it ALL!
One of the most foundational matters for understanding biblical Christianity is the relationship of the physical to the spiritual. Scripture teaches that since God is Creator and Redeemer he created a physical world that is inherently, or in its essential nature, spiritual. God as Creator is truly distinct from, yet not disconnected from his creation. He is certainly not dissolved into it so that we cannot speak in any meaningful sense about God without simply talking about the physical material realm. If we are to understand Jesus and his kingdom we must understand, at least in part, what his teaching and preaching had to do with his physical healing. Matthew 4:23-25 highlights these points, and along with some other passages in the Gospels helps us to understand that the very reason why Jesus was so popular became the very reason why he became so unpopular--he would not allow people to play the spiritual off against the physical.
