Sermons on Crucifixion
Titus 1:16-2:1; Without certain beliefs our faith ceases to be our faith
Matthew 21:1-11; Many Christians are disillusioned when they find God did not act in the manner they had prescribed for Him. God did not neatly fit into their box of what He should do or would do.
God does not want a better you. He wants a new you. For the unbeliever, new life is available. For the believer, restoration is possible.
The churches in Galatia were no longer looking like the church it was created to be. You can almost here Paul saying “how did you go from being redeemed through Christ, believing in Him and reflecting Him, to relying on yourselves, trying to do things your own way?”
We each have a past. We are here in the moment. What will your future look like? I can guarantee you this, with Christ, you do not have to face it alone and with Christ, it will be the fullest life possible. And with Christ, it will be an eternal life, one spent in relationship with Him.
Jesus breaks down barriers. Is there something that is hindering our fruitfulness in Christ — something that keeps us from seeing Him and showing Him?
Since it’s inception, the church has never been about bringing people to a place, it’s been about bringing people to a person and that person is Jesus Christ and Him alone. If we make this or any other about church anything other than Christ, we are living in sin, corporately, and we need to repent.
