Good News Brief–April 16, 2024

Sermon Recap: IN HIS IMAGE based on Genesis 1:26-27, 2:4-7, and Psalm 139:13-16

Low self-esteem and self-worth is the greatest crisis facing humanity today. Satan’s goal is the steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10), including our view of ourselves. Suicide is at an all-time high. More and more teenagers fall into self-destructive behaviors as a result of a poor self-image. There is an increased lack of hope and an ever-growing hatred of self. Yet, Jesus came and faced the cross because of his great love for us, his friends (John 15:13). He didn’t die or lay down his life for a lost cause; rather he died for humanity because of how valuable we are to him!

It is time to recapture the truth about who we are.

1) Made in the image of God (Gen 1:26). The word image is best translated as reflection or representation. When God created humanity, God made humanity in his image, using himself as the model for what a human should look like! We are not haphazardly made but with purpose and design. When we are the image of God, we are a mirror, reflecting God back to those around us. Instead of criticizing ourselves in the mirror and pointing out all our flaws, we should turn the mirror around and allow Christ to be reflected in everything we say and do.

2) Created in the likeness of God (Gen 1:26). To be one’s likeness is to resemble the nature, characteristics, and heart of another. Before the fall of humanity due to sin, humanity was created in God’s likeness–holy, right, and pure. But we still can reclaim who we are! We can be set apart, unstained by sin and the pitfalls of the world. We can be filled with compassion, grace, and love, just like God himself! We can develop a heart to seek and save the lost. It already exists in us; we just need to remember who we are!

3) Fashioned by God (Gen 2:7). When God made humanity, he took his time, crafting a human being from the dust of the ground. God is the potter; we are the clay (Isa 64:8). We are somebody; we are not an accident. We are not the product of evolution or a chance atmospheric event that started a chain reaction to bring all life into existence. We are not evolved from a random goo or just an intelligent ape. But we were fashioned and shaped by God, given a purpose for our existence!

4) We have the breath of God in us (Gen 2:7). A human being did not come to life until God breathed his life into humanity. The same breath of God that inspired the Bible (2 Tim 3:16), which brought dry bones to life (Ezek 37), and who raised Christ from the dead (Rom 8:11) dwells in each of us! We are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 6:19). We carry the breath of God and have the ability to declare and speak life into the darkness. And God enabled humanity to carry his breath because he wants us to partner in giving and sharing life!

5) Fearfully and wonderfully made (Ps 139:13-14). We are not an accident; God has been present with us while we were still in our mother’s womb. We are God’s masterpiece (Eph 2:10) and the apple of his eye (Ps 17:8). God has not abandoned or forgotten humanity. Rather, God is our biggest supporter, believer, and encourager, rooting for us. Even when we make a mistake and are mired in sin, we are still so valuable in God’s eyes that we are worth dying for to redeem!

How do we live then in the truth of who we are? How do we live as one made in the image of God? Know you are under the watchful eye and care of God (Ps 139:15-16). Embrace who you were created to be and live into the image of God! Submit yourself to God’s plan (Ps 139:16). God’s master plan for our lives has already been written–to live eternally if we are found in him! God’s plan for all his creation is to embrace salvation. It is our choice to come under the teaching and authority of God. Take our rightful place (Gen 1:26-27). We were created to rule, not in the sense of domination, but to be a caretaker and work for the benefit of others. Embody a living being (Gen 2:7). Separate from all sin, death, and rebellion, and live by putting Christ at the forefront and center of our lives! Don’t settle for a substitute, for you are worth the best. Jesus died for his most precious possession–humanity!

Questions for Reflection

1) Do you struggle with how you view yourself?

2) Is how we live a good reflection of God in us? If not, what changes can we make?

3) In which area can you reflect the likeness of God more–nature, character, or heart? What adjustments can you make beginning this week?

4) You have God’s very breath in you. How can that truth impact how you speak to others, especially to those who don’t believe in God?

5) God has a great plan for us. Do you submit yourself to God’s leading? If not, what is your greatest hesitation? Can it be surrendered?

Upcoming Service

This Sunday, Pastor Ryan will start the study on the Foundations of the Holy Spirit series with the sermon titled, “Why Do We Need the Holy Spirit?” based on John 14:25-27, 15:26-27, and 16:5-16. How does the Holy Spirit assist our spiritual growth? How should the Holy Spirit impact our living? Come by or tune in on Sunday to find out!

Good News Brief–April 9, 2024

Sermon Recap: EXALTED ONE based on Hebrews 1:3-14

Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life, died on the cross as the substitutionary atonement for our sins, and rose from the dead on the third day, conquering death, hell, and the grave and opening the floodgates to eternal life. But how do we take the truth of Jesus that we know in our heads and move it to our hearts? Jesus is Prophet, Priest, and King; how can these truths become our living reality? The writer of Hebrews encourages his audience, the Essene community which was looking for the Messiah, to embrace the truth and make it a living reality by doing these six things:

1) Trust in the authority of Jesus’ name (Heb 1:4-5). Names reveal identity. There is nothing more powerful than Jesus’ name! In his name, every knee will bow and tongue will confess (Phil 2:10-11). In his name, whatever we pray for will be answered (John 14). By the name of Jesus, miracles and healing can flow (Acts 3). There is no other name under heaven by which humanity can be saved (Acts 4:12). Jesus is the Son of the Most High God (Acts 16), the very title understood in antiquity as the God to whom everything else answers. Even the demons understood the power of the name of Jesus and tried to flee! Do we trust in Jesus and the power of his name?

2) Demonstrate an attitude of worship (Heb 1:6). The word worship is best defined as to make oneself low and bow down. The verb form in Hebrew only is used sparingly, and in each case, that form involves the whole or totality of an object or individual. In other words, true worship involves not just praises but surrendering our total lifestyle, becoming a living sacrifice (Rom 12:1) that refuses to conform to the ways and practices of the world (Rom 12:2). Everything we do should reflect the rule and reign of Christ. There is no room for compartmentalization!

3) Embrace his righteousness (Heb 1:8-9a). The text says that righteousness will be the scepter of his kingdom. A scepter was a tool used by a king that granted entry before his throne; without extending the scepter, one could not enter the king’s presence. Righteousness is the center of God’s kingdom. By embracing righteousness, we are making ourselves more like Christ, allowing him to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9) and saying yes to God’s way.

4) Hate wickedness (Heb 1:9b). Just as righteousness is the center of the kingdom, we should hate wickedness. Wickedness, or a purposeful choice to live in opposition to God’s standard, cannot dwell in the presence of God. We should hate wickedness–in other words, we should despise, loathe, abhor, or reject it from our lives. We need to evaluate our motives, choices, and those we allow to influence us. We should pursue God’s way and remove anything that pressures us to live opposite to the way of Christ.

5) Rest in the constancy of Christ (Heb 1:10-12). We live in a world of constant change, and for many of us, we cannot stand the change. But the one who never changes is God. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Heb 13:5), does not change like shifting shadows (James 1:17), and does not change (Mal 3:6). Because he does not change and will always remain, we can rest in comfort, knowing his guidance is clear and stands the test of time!

6) Walk in victory (Heb 1:13). Jesus is King and has defeated all enemies, including the enemy of our souls. All enemies are a footstool under his feet. Satan cannot harm us UNLESS we reject the protection of Christ and allow him in to harm us. Because Jesus has won the victory, we simply need to walk in Jesus’ way, and he will help us overcome any temptation.

Questions for Reflection

1) Do you believe in the power and authority of Jesus’ name? What do you struggle with believing has more power than Jesus?

2) What area of your life do you have the most struggle with surrendering to Jesus? Why?

3) Do you pursue and strive to live a righteous life? If not, what adjustments do you need to make?

4) What areas of wickedness seem to impact you the most? What influences do you need to remove?

Upcoming Service

This Sunday, Pastor Ryan will continue in the study of the Foundations of Faith series with the sermon titled, “In His Image,” based on Genesis 1:26-27, 2:4-7, and Psalm 139:13-16. What are the implications of being made in the image of God? How should it impact our living? Come by or tune in on Sunday to find out!

Good News Brief–April 2, 2024

Sermon Recap: BELIEVE THE RESURRECTION & RESURRECTED LORD based on 1 Corinthians 15:1-11 and 15:12-28

Two things are foundational for our existence as Christians: the cross and the empty tomb. Without the cross, there is no forgiveness of sins. But without the empty tomb, our Savior is still in the ground, and we are dead in our sins! The first witnesses understood the power and impact of the cross, and every action they took in the remainder of their lives was in light of that reality! Yet for us, two thousand years later, we have lost the euphoria, power, and impact of Jesus’ resurrection! Instead, we diminish its impact, dismiss the truth, or ignore it altogether. The enemy does not want us to embrace the truth because he knows how much it will change things.

If there is no resurrection…

  1. Christ has not been raised (1 Cor 15:13, 16).
  2. We have useless preaching (1 Cor 15:14).
  3. Our faith is futile (1 Cor 15:14, 17).
  4. We are false witnesses about God (1 Cor 15:15).
  5. We are still in our sins (1 Cor 15:17).
  6. There is no hope beyond this life (1 Cor 15:18).
  7. We are to be pitied above all humanity (1 Cor 15:19).

However, the resurrection of Christ was very much real! Because of the resurrection…

  1. Christ is the firstfruits (1 Cor 15:20), the first to rise, and the promise of a future resurrection for us all!
  1. We have the promise of a new spiritual life (1 Cor 15:21-22). The curse of Adam has been broken, and we can be made new. We don’t have to remain trapped in our past sins.
  1. Christ will return, resurrect, and rapture the saints (1 Cor 15:23). We have a promise that there is more to life than what we see on this earth, and Jesus will come back for his faithful!
  1. Christ will hand over all worldly powers to God (1 Cor 15:24). Satan, evil, and the forces of darkness no longer have dominion over humanity!
  1. Christ defeated death once and for all (1 Cor 15:25-26). Not only is there a promise of resurrection, but of eternal life, since Jesus died and defeated death by coming back to life! We don’t have to endure spiritual death!
  1. Christ will return all things to its original state (1 Cor 15:27-28). Everything will become as it once was before this world was corrupted by sin!

So how do we live in light of the resurrection? How do we embrace it?

  1. Take your stand (1 Cor 15:1), both on the gospel and truth. Anchor yourselves; refuse to move from the truth of God revealed in his Word.
  1. Hold firm to the Word (1 Cor 15:2). Refuse to let go of the Word and its promises. Order all of your steps based on what you know the Bible says. If not, you believe in vain.
  1. Prioritize what is important (1 Cor 15:3-8). Know what you believe, anchored in the Word, and why you believe it. Paul emphasized for things: Jesus died for our sins, he was buried, he was raised from the dead on the third day, and he appeared to many witnesses. Know what you believe, and stick to it! Keep the main thing the main thing!
  1. Embrace God’s grace (1 Cor 15:9-11). Because of the cross and the empty grave, God has won the victory. Anyone can be touched and changed by God’s grace. Let it change how we live–as people committed to the cross and the empty grave. May we never give up on anyone, for God can touch any heart!

Questions for Reflection

1) What impact does the empty tomb have in your life?

2) What still keeps you in bondage? Where can Jesus set you free?

3) Is Jesus your Savior?

4) Is Jesus your Lord? Is your life totally committed to following him?

5) Do you know what you believe? Can you articulate your faith?

6) Who do you know personally that could use a touch of God’s grace?

Upcoming Service

This Sunday, Pastor Ryan will conclude the study on the Foundations of Jesus with the sermon titled, “Exalted King,” based on Hebrews 1:3-14. Why is the exaltation of Jesus foundational for belief? How should it impact our living? Come by or tune in on Sunday to find out!
