Sermons from March 2017
Why isn’t the world the way it should be? Well, the answer is sin. It all began at the fall. This event from Genesis has an impact to this day, globally, relationally and personally. Until sin is bitter Christ will not be sweat.
Stories are meaningful. Stories are moving. Stories play a huge part in our lives in the day to day all the way up to changing ones life forever. We resonate with stories. There is one true story that tells all stories, it makes the most sense of the world. The story of the Bible. Today Creation. In the beginning God created.
One could say that Peter’s relationship with Jesus was an emotional roller-coaster, moments of historically spiritual highs and lows. We often project Jesus as having a negative attitude toward our failures, but we see from His relationship with Peter that isn’t the case. Offer your whole self and be redeemed by Jesus to be used for His good.
Jesus asks, to what benefit is gaining the world? We must understand that Christianity is not a warm blanket, it is the Cross. Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me, Jesus said. It is the only repair for our broken happiness-detector. Choose Jesus and be transformed.
