Jesus, Son of Abraham: Indebted to a Forgiving God
We understand why Jesus died, but it's harder to understand why Jesus had to die. In this sermons we explore two possibilities to answer that question.
The Essence - Mission Accomplished! The insight to remember - Jesus endured burning thirst to provide “living water” for you. The practical challenge - God’s Word can be trusted. The insight to remember - Jesus endured complete bankruptcy to provide “spiritual prosperity” for you. The practical challenge - God’s provision can be rested in.
Jesus said that the peacemakers are blessed because they will be called sons of God. To understand this statement we must understand the biblical idea of peace and the significance of the phrase "sons of God." Since God calls his Old Covenant people, Israel, his firstborn son and because the primary theme of Scripture is winning the conflict that he set in place against Satan and sin near the beginning of creation, we understand Jesus' statement in understanding the relationship between these two biblical emphases.
We all sin and fall short of the glory of God but God came down and became one of us and because he died for us we are all justified through faith. We have hope in Him. Don't dwell on past mistakes and sins but reflect on how they might serve their purpose if they drive us back into the presence of God.
Irony, it is all around us. In light of this reality, how can a song from the 1960's, Deadman's Curve, be helpful for those seeking to follow Jesus today in 2013? Or those seeking to follow Jesus in 2113? Or those seeking Jesus in any generation? Deadman's Curve & the Lenten Season...they have more in common than you may think. Listen along, complete with the song "Deadman's Curve," and ask the Spirit how it applies to your life. Larry Hayes is an elder of New Life Christian Church.
Twenty one weeks ago we began our thirty-one week journey through the Bible. Every chapter, every page, tells the extent God will go to in order to get us back. God wants to recapture his original vision to be with us, but sin must be dealt with.
