The Crucifixion of Christ, Part 2 (Luke 23:32-38).
Jesus was crucified between two thieves. But, these were not some run of the mill thieves; these were violent evil doers. Jesus, the innocent, sinless savior was sacrificed for the sins of the world between two sinful men. There is irony in the fact that Christ was killed between two men and the one man who should have been on the cross, Barabbass, was freed so Christ could fulfill the redemptive plan of God. Barabbas had to be freed so Christ could prove to the world that He was the coming Messiah. Yet, the Roman and the Jewish leaders were ignorant of this fact. But, why did Jesus have to die to prove this? To hear the answer you must listen to this morning's sermon by Pastor Robb. The only things that matter is Christ crucified.
True Worship Q & A.
Many of you have questions about the worship service and how we are to worship with our fellow believers. Today you get an opportunity to have your questions answered by Pastor Robb; as well as our worship leaders, Sam Stefanski, and Josh Stefanski.
The Crucifixion of Christ, Part 1 (Luke 23:26-31).
Jesus was being led to a hill called Golgotha and He was too weak to carry His own cross. After Jesus endured hours of being sent back and forth between Pilate and Herod; He was mocked, beaten, and scourged. Jesus was simply too weak to lift His own instrument of crucifixion. The Roman guards had to enlist someone else to help the King of glory. This example of Simon carrying Jesus' cross has many implications for believers today. To hear the lessons from this part of Luke, please listen to this morning's sermon by Pastor Robb and may we all understand what it means to be a true disciple of Christ.
True Worship, Part 2 (Selected Scriptures).
What is worship? What is the proper mindset when we enter into a time of worship with God? We should never enter into worshipping our Creator with a cavalier attitude. We should always be humble in our demeanor and our attitude. God is holy and we should be mindful of this fact when we are worshipping Him. But, how can our worship be God-centered if we are focusing on ourselves or not focused at all? This evening's sermon by Pastor Robb explores the meaning of True Worship and how we should worship in Spirit and truth.
YOU...With Me (Psalm 23).
"The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want." These are perhaps the most popular words in Scripture. Often recited, but both believers and unbelievers. These are powerful words of strength, provision, security, and love from a Shepherd that loves His children; His sheep. While they may give comfort to all people; they are not meant for all people. As you listen to this mornings sermon by Matthew Yeary; please hear how the great Shepherd gives comfort only for His redeemed sheep. It is only the true believer who lacks for nothing.
Jesus On Trial, Part 4 (Luke 23:13-25).
Jesus was sentenced to death. A treasonous murder was set free. This is perhaps the weakest form of judgment from the most unjust ruler of all times. Pilate sentence Jesus to an unjust death, even though he pronounced Jesus righteous and could find no crime against Him. Why did Pilate give into the Jews? Why did Pilate sentence the innocent Christ to death? As we draw to a close on the sermon series of Luke; please hear how Pastor Robb explains the three gospel truths of this part of Jesus' trial.
