Saving or Spending (Worship Service, August 14, 2016)

Title: Saving or Spending

Passage: Mark 8:34-38

Speaker: Missionary Mark Perry

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 14th, 2016

When Jesus began to teach his disciples that he had come to suffer and give his life, Peter rebuked Jesus. But Jesus reminded Peter that he was thinking from a purely human perspective, not God’s perspective. Instead of avoiding death at all costs, Jesus called his followers together and reminded them that following him means giving up our life.

Following Jesus Christ demands that his disciples forfeit their lives to Him (v. 34). Four reasons:

  • Protecting your physical life brings no eternal gain (v. 35).
  • Protecting your earthly means is a waste of time and energy (v. 36).
  • Your eternal soul is priceless (v. 37).
  • Refusal to follow Jesus completely is a refusal to follow at all (v. 38).

Finally Victory (Worship Service, June 26, 2016)

Title: Finally Victory

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:53-57

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: June 26th 2016

In the last verse of this paragraph, Paul is so full of awe at the goodness of God to sinners, breaks out in praise. It is a sublime cap to this glorious chapter on the resurrection, followed only by the practical implications of our resurrection in v. 58. But why the thanks to God? Paul’s reasons are nicely provided in the verses that precede. God’s Word is calling you this morning to return thanks to God for your salvation. So let’s see the reasons we should be thankful:

Forever Changed (Worship Service, June 19, 2016

Title: Forever Changed

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:50-52

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: June 19th 2016

We must be changed. Unless something happens to you between now and then, you will be unable to enter the Eternal State. The good news is that God will change believers for eternity. The point is, All who have believed in Jesus Christ will be changed for eternal life. Even though all saints will be changed for eternity, Paul’s focus is on the church in this passage, for the address is to brothers. The Spirit gives three ways how we who through faith in Christ make up his body will be changed for eternity.

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

In vv. 44b-49, the Holy Spirit wants us to understand how the risen Christ gloriously saves us by his grace for our future eternal life. It is not just that we will be saved for eternal bliss, but Jesus is the only one that can do this for us. How does Christ gloriously save us by his grace for our future eternal life? Paul gives three ways:
1.The risen Christ will bestow full Spiritual life (vv. 44-46).
2.The risen Christ will fit us for heavenly life (vv. 47-48).

How are the Dead Raised? Part 2 (Worship Service, May 29, 2016

Title: How are the dead Raised? Part 2

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:35-49

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: May 29th 2016

We must take God at his Word concerning the resurrection. The two
questions Paul poses in v. 35 are given in the voice of a skeptic:
Nevertheless, Paul defends the resurrection against such doubt. Such
an apologetic both silences the hardened skeptic and strengthens the
confused saint. Paul gives four reasons for us to trust God.
Last week:
1. The God who will raise us is all-powerful (34b).
2. The skepticism that doubts God comes from foolish evil (35-36a)
3. God’s power in creation is analogous to our resurrection (36b-41)
a. We are raised after death as the seed is raised after death.
b. We are raised by God’s power as the plant from the seed.
This week
c. God is sovereign over the resurrection as he is the creation.
d. Earthly bodies differ, as ours then will from ours now.
e. Heavenly bodies are above earthly, as ours then will from ours now.
f. Heavenly bodies differ from each other, as we will then.
4. Jesus Christ’s resurrection teaches us what form our own resurrection will take (42-49).

The Practical Christian Life (Without The Resurrection) Part 2 (Worship Service, May 15 2016)

Title: The Practical Christian Life (Without the Resurrection) Part 2

Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:29-34

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: May 15th 2016

Affirming the resurrection has great effects on our life as believers. The reality of our resurrection ought to effect profoundly the way you live your life. If you truly believe that the living Jesus Christ will raise your dead bodies, you will live differently than if you didn’t believe this. In our passage, Paul suggests three ways.

 

Last week:

  1. We Die in Baptism (v. 29)
  1. We Die in Ministry (vv. 30-31a)

 

This Week:

  1. We Die to Sin (vv. 31b-34a)
