Sermons about Sacrifice
Obedience and Sacrifice lead to being able to resource God. At the same time we must trust the Holy Spirit to provide us with the gifts we need to serve Him.
Have you ever made a deal with God trying to convince Him to do something you wanted Him to do? Check out this Old Testament story from the Book of Judges where Jephthah tries to offer God a sacrifice other than His heart and soul.
Following Jesus has both a high cost and a glorious reward.
In the closing remark of his letter to the Romans, Paul explains his role in ministering to the Gentiles. He knew WHO he was left on the earth to effect . . . Who is your WHO?
Every one who believes in Christ is given new life in Him. Every believer is called and empowered to live a new life in Christ. This new life is patterned after Christ’s life. Christ poured himself out into the form of a servant, took up our burdens in life and death and was ultimately raised up by God the Father. This is the pattern of life for others we experience in Christ. (This message also includes a brief report on the speaker’s service as a professor at Handong University in Korea).
In Romans 12:1-2 the apostle Paul summarizes the entire Christian life and therefore the church's life. While telling us two things to do and one thing not to do, all three are fundamentally the same directive expressed in different ways. They reveal what marks the true Christian life and the true church. They reveal that God’s saving his people from sin is his sanctifying process accomplished and applied by his authority as he continually transforms his people by the renewal of their minds in and by his Word & Spirit as they continuously submit themselves to His Word. Only those regenerated by God's Spirit through His Word are enabled to submit themselves to this process, and as they continue to do so they are renewed or transformed so that they are enabled to discern, love and obey God's will. The life of the church corporately and the individual Christian's life is first and foremost about them presenting themselves to God to receive from God what God alone gives.
Lesson Aim: To grow in our understanding of Jesus as our perfect Passover Lamb and Bread of Life.
