Sermons about Wholeness
Unlike most slave masters, the centurion cared deeply about his slave. This is why he send for Jesus, as he had heard of Him. We all heard of Jesus, but do we speak of Him to the world? Maybe there is somebody who needs to hear you speak about Him, so their lives, just as yours, will be changed forever and placed under His authority.
We all need healing....all the time. This message looks at how Jesus brings healing into our lives through the most troubling areas of our past.
Part 6 in our Road Trip series sheds light on what God wants us to do when we find ourselves dangling at the end of our rope.
Peter concludes his teaching on submission to authority with a straightforward address concerning the Servant Jesus. This passage is very likely an adaptation of an early Christian hymn about Christ. It suits Peter’s theme beautifully as, in close dependence upon Isaiah 53, it describes how Jesus, the Suffering Servant of the Lord, submitted to suffering in this world because of His obedience to His heavenly Father. Being obedient to His Father did not deliver Him from suffering, but led Him straight to it! Through His suffering we have found forgiveness, restoration, peace and healing.
God's love is shown to us through the parameters He has set for us in His Word. Just as a parent keeps a or tries to keep a child safe within the yard to does God. It is in weighing and judging against the Word, that we know and He is able to guide us to a deeper relationship with Him.
The Sword, God's Word is here to bring us closer to Him. Often we look at scripture as a band-aid something to just make us feel better, however what this is all about is to bring us into a closer relationship with our Creator! We often look at this as a bad thing, especially since a sword is given to us a the picture, but what we need to see is that just as a surgeon cuts away the bad, so does God so healing, and wholeness of relationship can be restored.
Wholeness starts with one individual
Peace is more than just an absence of outward hostilities. It actually has nothing to do with how things are going on the outside. The peace of God comes from the inside. It has to do with completeness, wholeness. The man walking in peace knows that no matter what happens, God has provided for him to have the victory.
