Sermons about Resurrection
What makes you feel secure? For Peter, security is found in our new birth in Christ, in a living hope, in Jesus' resurrection from the dead, and in our inheritance stored in heaven as we are shielded by God's power.
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.
There are events surrounding the ascension of Jesus that urge us to realize God's love for us and to see things from His point of view. In fact, the ascension of Jesus forever changed things. While the above statements are reality, if someone is unaware of the changes, then the truths are of no value to the person. Unfortunately the lives of many people seeking to follow Jesus seem to reflect an unawareness of what was changed by the ascension of Jesus. Indeed, due to His ascension things will never be the same. Will the same be said of your life?
Sermon #28 from the "God with Us" series. Scripture from John 11:1-44.
Sometimes, perhaps not intentionally, we give the leftovers of our time, treasure, and talent to the Lord's work though the local church. When this happens, we subtly communicate that the mission to which Christ has called us isn't really worth the sacrifice. Paul offers a great corrective to this problem at the end of his teaching on Christ's resurrection and ours in 1 Corinthians 15. We must know the implications of the resurrection (for now and eternity), commit ourselves wholeheartedly to the Lord' s work (without being swayed by the philosophies of our culture), and pursue excellence together with God's people (convinced that the sacrifice is worth it).
A Study in the Book of Acts
Taking a look at the faith of "Demanding Thomas," one who had high expectations, and how we, living the journey long after the resurrection, might come to anticipation and faith in Jesus Christ.
Have confidence and be comforted in the life giving power of the Word.
