Pastor Jason Simmonds continues our series, "Disciple: Learning to Follow Jesus" with his talk titled, "It is Written". He speaks to us from Mathew 4:1-11 and Luke 24:13-32.
Paul repeatedly speaks the gospel to the Thessalonians. He speaks the gospel to the head (exhorting), heart (encouraging), and hands (charging), so that his disciples grow up and mature and become a trophy of grace. Paul looks forward to the day of celebrating and boasting in what the gospel has done in this church. When the gospel does the work, no one gets to take credit other than Jesus, but we get to boast and rejoice in his work through us, presenting others to him as trophies of grace.
Are we dependent on ourselves, or are we desperate for God's Spirit? Jesus fulfilled his mission as one driven by the Spirit. He was anointed with the Spirit to preach the Word and display the coming kingdom through good deeds. We must engage in the same mission of word and deed.
