He's Alive!

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

Matthew 28:1-10

Luke 24:1-12

Four directions that the angels give to the women when they come to the tomb.

  • Come! – That’s a Word of Invitation.

  • See! – Perceive, Understand, Experience, Encounter

  • Go! – Action is Required!

  • Tell! – Don’t Keep It To Yourself! Share the Good News (The Gospel)!

 

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ Included Five Accomplishments:

  1. The physical renewing of His life.

  2. The reunion of His body and His spirit.

  3. The subjugation of death under Him.

  4. The attainment of His new position.

  5. His receiving of a transfigured body.

Consider The Cross

Points In Time (The Cross Through Time - Where Its Shadow Fell)

Revelation 13:8; Matthew 16:21-23

  1. The first point in time is the life of Christ.

  2. The second point in time is the baptism of Jesus.

  3. The third point in time is the birth of Jesus.

  4. The fourth point in time is with the prophets themselves.

  5. The fifth point in time is before the foundation of the world.

The Cross of Jesus Part 2

And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” This He said, signifying by what death He would die.

  • John 12:32-33

 

III.    The Cross of Jesus Christ is offensive (1 Cor. 1:23; Phil. 3:18-19).

  1. The cross of Jesus is the power of God (1 Cor. 1:17-25).

  2. The cross of Jesus is the wisdom of God.

IV.    The cross of Jesus is triumphant.

  1. The cross of Jesus triumphs over the law (Col. 2:14).

  2. The cross of Jesus triumphs over sin (Heb. 9:24-28).

  3. The cross of Jesus triumphs over death (Heb. 2:14-15).

  4. The cross of Jesus triumphs over the devil (Rev. 12:10-12).

  5. Finally, The cross of Jesus triumphs over all (Col. 2:15).

V.      The cross of Jesus is primary.

1. The cross of Jesus was primary in His life (Luke 9:51).

2. The cross of Jesus is primary in becoming a believer (John 3:16; Matt. 16:24).

3.      The cross of Jesus is primary in glorying God (Gal. 6:14).

The Cross of Jesus Part 1

And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” This He said, signifying by what death He would die.

  • John 12:32-33

 

I.The cross of Jesus Christ is revealing.

     A.       The death of Jesus Christ on the cross reveals God’s concern for sinful people.

               (Matt. 20:28; Luke 19:10; John 12:32-33*; Rev. 13:8)

     B.      The death of Jesus Christ on the cross reveals the awfulness of sin. (Rom. 3:23; 6:23)

     C.      The death of Jesus Christ on the cross reveals God’s love for sinners. (John 3:16; 15:13;

              Rom. 5:8)

II.      The cross of Jesus Christ is sacrificial, saving, and atoning. (Matt. 20:28; Luke 19:10)

          A.      The death of Jesus Christ on the cross was predicted (Rev. 13:8; 1 Peter 1:18-20).

          B.      The death of Jesus Christ on the cross was shameful (John 19:23-24; Heb. 12:2).

          C.      The death of Jesus Christ on the cross was voluntary (John 10:17-18).

D.      The death of Jesus Christ on the cross was substitutionary (1 Peter 2:24; Titus 2:14; Isa. 53:4-10; 2 Cor. 5:21).

Galatians 1:15-24 A Revelatian of Jesus Christ

  • We are our best argument for the truth of the gospel.

    • Not only when the change in our life is against all odds, but when the change in our life comes out of nowhere.

  • Do we find God, or does God find us?

  • Karl Barth, a 20th Century theologian, said: “true Christians are the victims of a successful surprise attack by God.”

  • When the change in our life comes out of nowhere, it makes it clear to everyone that it is by the grace of God that we are who we are.

  • Only grace makes sense of who we are; only grace explains our life.

  • We are our best argument for the truth of the gospel when the change in our lives is so real that others see it and praise God because of us.

  • Sometimes we domesticate the gospel and forget it is itself, the power of God.

Galatians 1:10 Being A Servant Of Jesus Christ

Review

  • The first principle of gospel-rooted living: Go back to grace. (Gal. 1:1-5)

  • The second principle is: There is only one true gospel – Jesus Christ. (Gal. 1:6-9)

  • The third principle is: we are not called to be people pleasers. (Gal. 1:10)

    • People-pleasers cave under pressure from influential people. (Gal. 2:1-5)

    • People-pleasers ignore harmful hypocrisy. (Matt. 18:15-17; Gal. 2: 11-14; 6:1-3)

    • People-pleasers hide from the shame of the cross. (Heb. 12:2; Gal. 6:12, 17)

    • People-pleasers are idolaters. (Rom. 1:24-32)

    • How do we fight the people-pleaser in ourselves?

      • By fighting the fight of faith, by trusting in all that God is for us in and through Jesus Christ. (Rom. 1:16-17)

      • Jesus Christ has taken all the judgments against us and nailed them to the cross.

      • We must also come to really believe that God’s judgment is the only one that counts. (1 Cor. 4:3-4)

February 18, 2018

Galatians 1 - The True Gospel

Galatians 1:11-14

What Do We Say?

  1. Simply tell your story.

    1. Tell how the gospel has changed your life.

    2. It is our most powerful apologetic.

  2. Pride is insurmountable.

    1. The good news is this: God is sovereign in salvation!

    2. Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners!

February 11, 2018

Transfiguration

2 Corinthians 4:1-6; Mark 9:2-9;

Matt. 17:1-9; Luke 9:28-36; 2 Peter 1:16-18

„We talked about that veil, that Satan has used to blind the minds of the unbelievers.

„Here we’ve also seen the veil that Jesus used to hide His glory from men as He walked among them.

„But in both cases, when that veil is removed, men can see Jesus for who He really is.

The Son of God. God in the flesh.

„When that veil is removed, people can see the truth of the gospel and what it means.

„When we experience God’s mercy, it shows.

„Our instincts change and our priorities shift from gratifying our own ego, to exalting God.

„We stop fearing what others think of us, and find our identity grounded in Christ.

„It’s a transformation that shows God is working in our lives.

„Paul recognized the transformative power of the gospel, and it drove his ministry.

„We should let it drive ours as well.

February 04, 2018

Galatians 1 - No Other Gospel

Galatians 1:1-10

Where Do We Go?

  2. God wants to unleash His grace.

  3. The Galatian controversy is not over teachers, preachers or personalities, but it is over truth and error.

-- 2 Corinthians 5:17

 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

-- 1 Peter 1:3-5

The Star: A Journey of Christmas

The Elements of The Story

Hope

  • God’s promise was fulfilled in the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

  • He is the ongoing source of our hope.

Love

  • As long as God is, there has been and is love. It is His nature and being.

  • At a specific point in past history, motivated by intense love, God sent His Son among us.

Joy

  • We know from the angel’s announcement on that first Christmas that the birth of Christ was a joyful event.

  • The good news of great joy was that Jesus, the Savior of the world, was born.

  • The joy for us today is that the same message of good news is for us, here, now, today.

Peace

  • Everywhere we look are indications of a desperate need for peace.

  • There and everywhere, we again can see God’s peace throughout the story line of eternity.

  • There in the past is the arrival of the Prince of Peace in that manger.

  • Jesus left us the gift of His peace through His Spirit—a peace that transcends our full understanding and worst circumstances, a peace that guards and restores our hearts and minds.

December 17, 2017

The Star: A Journey of Peace

John 14:27

Three Things of Peace

  1. Peace in the Midst.

    1. Angels rejoicing and worshiping with unrestrained joy!

    2. Bringing a message of peace.

  2. Prince of Peace.

    1. His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

    2. Jesus is the Prince of Peace.

  3. Peace for the World.

    1. Jesus came as the Prince of Peace, and we can abide in Him and experience peace in our souls.

    2. When we abide in the Prince of Peace and come to Him in prayer in every situation, His peace flows over us to settle and guard our hearts and minds.

December 10, 2017

The Star: A Journey of Joy

Luke 2:9-10

Three Aspects of Joy

  1. Joy and pain co-exist.

  2. Joy brings connection with others.

  3. Joy leads us to worship.

 

Step Into the Journey in Three Ways

1st - Take the time to connect with others.

2nd - Take time and make the choice to be purposefully thankful.

3rd - Let’s worship God for who He is.

December 03, 2017

The Star: A Journey of Love

Romans 8:38-39

  1. God’s Love was from the Start.

    1. God’s love does not depend on us.

    2. It starts with God, not us.

 

  1. God’s Love is Enough.

    1. God loves you purely, perfectly, wholly, lavishly.

    2. You don’t have to earn points to muster up love from God.

 

  1. God’s Love Overflows.

    1. God’s love, shifts our focus from trying hard to love others to experiencing the depth of God’s love in a way that allows it to overflow in our life to the people around us.

 

 

Three Main Takeaways

  • 1st – God is love, and He sent His Son as a sacrifice for us. This was Jesus, God’s love from the start and His gift to each of us.

  • 2nd – We can know and rely on God’s love - God’s love is enough for us today, tomorrow, for always.

  • 3rd – We love because God first loved us. God’s love overflows within and through us to others.
