A short Gospel message – Why the Cross? Why Jesus? Why Us?
In this sermon we pick up something of the method, the direction, the journey and the approach of a great man of God. Interestingly, every believer is greater than Him!!
It is easy to lose sight of our true identity – this message encourages us to find our identity in Christ.
The idea of truth is examined in this sermon. We see that truth is completely seen in the person of Jesus, it is seen in the written word of God and is something for people to live according to.
Stop trusting in yourself – it only leads to failure. Rather, transfer your trust to the Lord. Simple, but life-transforming.
We see that Jesus placed great value on people. But then we examine the Parable in Luke 19:11-27 which shows that we are to invest what God has given us into people that do not yet follow Jesus.
Ecclesiastes 4 has some wonderful verses about friendship. We are not made to be on our own and here we see great value and reward from the friendships and relationships we cultivate.
Tonight’s sermon focuses on why YOU are here, either at Church or on our website, and emphasises that we need to ‘raise our bar’ as Christians, because we are Christians for life, not just for Sunday.
This sermon uses passages from Romans to show what it means to be ‘In Christ’ and the wonderful benefits which this offers, particularly that God loves you!
Taking a look at the response of the two men crucified either side of Jesus this sermon addresses the issue of having a hard heart and how Jesus is the cure.
