    The Doctrine of Creation - Part One

    The Doctrine of Creation - Part One

    Genesis 1:1-3 is not merely the introduction to a sacred text; it is the foundation upon which our understanding of life, purpose, and God Himself rests. Let us draw our hearts near to these eternal truths as we wrap up this message this morning.
    First, we recognize the omnipotent Creator—"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."
    Not a force,
    not a collective consciousness,
    not evolution,
    not a big bang,
    not chance,
    but the Almighty God, who is sovereign and supreme, created the heaven and the earth.
    It is He who fashioned everything from the vast expanse of the universe to the intricate details of our being. Who among us will dare to challenge His authority or question His existence when all creation bears His signature?
    Next, the question stands before each one of us: Will you believe God? Not merely believe in Him but believe Him—take Him at His word. Genesis 1:1 doesn't just demand our acknowledgment; it requires our faith. In a world where truth is often considered relative, the truth of God's Word stands unshakeable.
    Will you anchor your soul in the shifting sands of human wisdom, or will you plant your feet firmly on the solid rock of God's unchanging truth?
    Look at the magnitude of God's creation. "The heaven and the earth"—everything that exists, seen and unseen, material and immaterial. There is no realm or reality outside of His sovereign handiwork.
    Every galaxy, every atom, every heartbeat pulses with the rhythm of His divine intention. How can we look upon the beauty and complexity of the world around us and not be moved to worship its Creator?
    The location of God's creative activity unfolds in "the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep." Here, in the formless void, God's Spirit hovered, ready to enact the divine will. God chose to create here, in this space, bringing order, beauty, and life from chaos.
    Does your life feel formless and empty? Know that the same God who spoke light into the darkness can speak life into your deepest voids.
    Finally, we marvel at the method of God's creation—"And God said, Let there be light: and there was light." By His word alone, reality came into being.
    His command was sufficient to ignite the dawn of creation, bringing forth light out of the darkness. This same powerful Word speaks to us today through the Scriptures, guiding, creating new life within, transforming darkness into light.
    We stand at the crossroads of belief and unbelief, of divine truth and human reasoning.
    The God who created the heavens and the earth by His word alone is the same God who offers you new life through His Son, Jesus Christ, by faith alone.

    The Mission (Matthew 28:9-20)

    The Mission (Matthew 28:9-20)

    Our text presents us not just with a narrative to admire but with a commission that demands our entire being—our hearts, our minds, and our actions. "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." (Matthew 28:19-20).
    These words, spoken by our resurrected Lord, are not mere suggestions or dreams of what could be. They are the very essence of our calling as followers of Christ.
    This Great Commission is not optional; it is the cornerstone of our identity as disciples of Jesus. It is a charge to action, a call to arms in the spiritual battle for souls waged across the expanse of time and into the eternity that beckons.
    The world around us groans under the weight of sin, despair, and darkness. People are searching for hope, for meaning, and for salvation. We have the answer. We possess the message of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ—the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes.
    “But how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!” (Romans 10:14-15).
    The charge before us is clear. We are to go, to make disciples of all nations, immersing them in the transformative truth of the Gospel. This is not a mission we undertake alone.
    For the commission comes with a promise of His perpetual presence—"lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world"— this assures us that in our obedience, we are empowered by the very presence of Jesus Christ Himself.
    Therefore, let us cast aside every hindrance, every fear, and every doubt that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race before us.
    Let us be bold in our proclamation,
    wise in our teaching,
    and fervent in our love,
    that through us, the world might encounter the risen Christ.
    The time for hesitation is over. The moment to act is now. The fields are ripe for harvest, but the laborers are few. Will you answer the call? Will you embrace the Great Commission as your personal mandate? Will you carry the message of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ to a world in desperate need?

    The Resurrection of Christ (Matthew 27:62-28:8)

    The Resurrection of Christ (Matthew 27:62-28:8)

    Now, as we reflect on Resurrection Sunday, let us anchor our hearts and minds in the divine proclamation that forever altered the course of humanity and eternity itself.
    Hearken unto the words that shattered the chains of death and sin, "He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay." “He is not here: for He is risen!” The tomb is empty! He is not there! We serve a risen and eternally living Savior!
    This resurrection account here in Matthew is not merely a historical narrative to inspire the fainthearted. No, this is the very power of God unto salvation! Romans 10:9 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” The resurrection is the key.
    The empty tomb is the eternal testament to the Lord Jesus Christ's victory over sin, death, and the devil. A victory not just witnessed in the annals of history but one that reverberates through every generation, calling each of us to a life transformed.
    As we bask in the glory of our risen Lord, let us not be spectators of this divine triumph. The resurrection is a clarion call to action, a summons to arise from the slumber of complacency and to clothe ourselves in the armor of God.
    For it is faith, faith in Jesus, faith in His death, burial, and His resurrection that gives us the victory! For in Christ's victory, we are more than conquerors, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37).
    Yet, this victory demands our participation. It beckons us to live in the reality of the resurrection, to embody its power in our daily lives, and to proclaim its truth to a world ensnared by the shadows of despair and sin.

    The Burial of Christ (Matthew 27:51-61)

    The Burial of Christ (Matthew 27:51-61)

    Jesus always describes discipleship in this way, as an “either/or” proposition.
    Either we follow Jesus, or we chase after the world.
    Either we seek to please Jesus, or we seek the approval of men.
    Either we serve God, or we serve wealth…you cannot serve both.
    Joseph and Nicodemus were good men – righteous men even – but until this moment, they were trying to have both. They wanted to remain on the Sanhedrin Counsel and with the approval of the other Pharisees and Sadducees…At the same time, they wanted credit for following a Messiah that the rest of the Counsel despised and wanted to kill. But there was literally no way they could have both…one allegiance would always win out over the other.
    This is the challenge facing every disciple of Jesus…we are called out of the world by our faith, and yet we remain in the world for a time. Jesus said we must be willing to “lose” this world so we can serve the interests of the next, and that means making different decisions, living differently, and having kingdom priorities, not worldly priorities, it means putting Christ first, His Word and His local Church first, over the priorities of the world and entertainment and rest.
    Following Jesus may mean losing a few friends, losing promotions, or your job…it may even mean losing your life. That is the dilemma Jesus places in front of all His disciples…which is why Jesus asked us to count the cost of following Him.
    Matthew tells us Joseph was a rich man, so we would understand the great sacrifice he was making by stepping forward. He would likely lose his position on the council, his place in society, the respect of his peers, and his means of support.
    So, Joseph does, finally publicly side with Jesus, and as He does, he fulfills Scripture. Isaiah 53:9 says the Messiah dies among criminals and He is buried in a rich man’s tomb.

    The Death of Christ (Matthew 27:45-50)

    The Death of Christ (Matthew 27:45-50)

    As we reflect on the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, we are confronted with the reality of our own sinfulness and the immense sacrifice that was made for our salvation. In Matthew 27:45-50, we see the darkness that covered the land, the cry of abandonment from Jesus, and His final breath as He gave up His spirit.
    This scene should not only move us to tears but also to action.
    We must recognize the gravity of our sin and the weight of the sacrifice that was made on our behalf. The death of Jesus was not in vain, but rather it was the ultimate act of love that calls for our response.
    Jesus' death on the cross was the ultimate act of love because, as it is written in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
    Jesus willingly sacrificed Himself for the salvation of humanity, out of love for us. As it is written in Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
    Through His death and resurrection, Jesus demonstrated the depth of His love for us and provided a way for us to be reconciled to God and receive eternal life.
    This act of love shows us the great extent to which God is willing to go to save us and bring us back into a relationship with Him.
    We are called to repent of our sins and turn to Jesus Christ for salvation. We must acknowledge our need for a Savior and accept the gift of forgiveness that was paid for on the cross.
    Let us not take this sacrifice lightly, but instead, let us live in a way that honors the sacrifice that was made for us.
    Today, I urge you to examine your heart and your life.
    Are you living in a way that reflects the love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ?
    Are you perhaps, taking your salvation for granted, and what Jesus did for you for granted?
    Perhaps you are unsure of your salvation, are you willing to turn from your sin and accept the gift of salvation that is freely offered to you?
    The death of Jesus on the cross is a reminder of the incredible love that God has for each and every one of us. Let us not take this love for granted, but instead, let us respond with gratitude, repentance, and a renewed commitment to follow Him wholeheartedly.
    May we never forget the sacrifice that was made on our behalf, and may we live our lives in a way that reflects the love and grace of our Savior. Repent, believe, and be saved! “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

    Refuse Not God (Sunday AM 3/10/24) - Hebrews 12:24-29

    Refuse Not God (Sunday AM 3/10/24) - Hebrews 12:24-29

    Everything hinges on knowing who God is and what He has done for us by His grace in Christ. He has given us great privileges, by speaking to us from Heaven through Jesus’ blood, and by giving us a kingdom that cannot be shaken.
    He is the great God, whose voice will shake both earth and heaven. He is a consuming fire.
    So, we have great responsibilities: we should take heed to serve Him with obedient, grateful, and reverent hearts.
    “See that ye refuse not him that speaketh” (v.25). Don’t tell God no. Do not refuse to do what God has clearly commanded us to do, what He is calling you do to. Let us not refuse to do for God what He expects us to do for Him as Christians.
    Remember, keep in mind, don’t forget the blood that was shed for your sins.
    Don’t forget how great our God is.
    Don’t forget how God speaks to us through the blood of Christ.
    Don’t forget the awesome power of God, how He will shake the heavens and the earth.
    And do not refuse to obey the God who is a consuming fire. Don’t say not to God!
    We are so, so, so privileged to be God’s children. Do not refuse to do the basics of the Christian life. Be faithful to church. When the doors are open be here. Serve your church, seek ways to serve your church.
    Witness for Christ. Come to outreach. Put up door hangers, pass out tracts, give out the Gospel, and tell people about Jesus and how they can be saved from the penalty of their sins.
    “See that ye refuse not him that speaketh” (v.25) see that you refuse not God! Don’t say not to God!
