Sermons on Jesus
Christ is the ‘firstborn’ over all creation. That speaks of His priority, His pre-eminence and His sovereignty. We need to focus on an audience of One and ask ourselves these questions – Is Christ Supreme and Will I submit to Him?
Steve speaks from John 15:1-8. His challenge to us is – “Don’t focus on the fruit; abide in the Vine.” As the branches we need to get our nutrients from the Vine. God’s pruning may be difficult but it is necessary if we are to be fruitful. We need to invest in our relationship with Jesus!
Steve takes us to Psalm 23 where we learn that as we Follow Christ we can trust Him to refresh our souls, to guide us in the right paths, to protect us, to correct us and to give us joy. We are important to Him.
David looks at the Christ we Follow – this glorious, amazing, majestic, limitless, infinite, triumphant, majestic Christ who has chosen to place all His fullness in us who believe in Him. We ‘remember’ Christ and therefore seek to participate with Him in His ministry.
We look at the challenge to Nathanael to come and see Jesus, the challenge to the disciples of Jesus turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana and then Jesus’ challenge to us to cloth ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience and LOVE. How will we respond?
David reminds us again that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the One and Only Son of God (the Unique One). We look at the ministry of John the Baptist and his humility as he pointed people to Jesus. What about us? Are we humble and available to God as John was?
Starting with John 1:1-14 we look at the glory of Jesus Christ – The Word who became flesh and made His dwelling among us and some of the many prophesies that were fulfilled by Christ.
