Jesus’ Words For Life: Fear Him Who Can Destroy Both Soul And Body In Hell

August 21, 2016

“…teaching them everything I have commanded you” means it is important to know what Jesus commanded us to teach.  This series is focused upon listing those commands that Jesus gave His disciples and us to both live out and to teach to others.

 

The verses that follow John 3:16 make it clear that Jesus came to save, not to condemn, because those who die without Him are already condemned because of sin (John 3:17-18).  These words are hard to hear because we can barely grasp both the holiness of God and the wrath of God.  Both of these elements collided at the cross as God, the Son, placed himself in our place to suffer our punishment so that we might be saved through His sacrifice.  Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Jesus’ Words For Life: Take Up Your Cross And Follow Me

July 24, 2016

“…teaching them everything I have commanded you” means it is important to know what Jesus commanded us to teach.  This series is focused upon listing those commands that Jesus gave His disciples and us to both live out and to teach to others.

Combined Worship Service With Brothers and Sisters of the East Main Street Church of Christ in Benton Harbor.

The simple invitation to “Follow Me” led seasoned fishermen to drop their nets, a tax collector to forfeit his main source of income and so much more.  Leaving everything, Jesus’ disciples followed Him, even when He would tell them that this would involve cross bearing.  Jesus’ call today remains uncompromising.

Jesus’ Words For Life: Love Me

July 10, 2016

“…teaching them everything I have commanded you” means it is important to know what Jesus commanded us to teach.  This series is focused upon listing those commands that Jesus gave His disciples and us to both live out and to teach to others.

When Jesus commanded us to love Him above all others (Matthew 10:17) He was addressing the all-encompassing nature of His love with which He loves us and telling us that we must love Him with the same devotion.  This is more than a choice or decision that is done in spite of how we feel; it is something that overflows because of what He has done for us.  It is out of gratitude for such undeserved, un-merited,  unconditional love from God Himself that we love Him and we love others.
