A special thanks to Jerry Smith for all the work on the parsonage.
Pastor: What kind of mustard is this.... If has little seeds in it.
Geri: The Bible says all we have to have is faith the size of a mustard seed.
So let's muster up some faith because we are going to renovate the parsonage.
JESUS CHRIST THE SON OF MAN.
“And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.”
John 2:1-11 KJV
JESUS IS STILL IN THE MIRACLE BUSINESS.
God never changes, he is the same yesterday, today and forever.
When you see God do something your self, you know God can do things. When you have been healed, you know for a fact that God can heal.
Q: Do you know for a fact tonight that Jesus is real?
SON of GOD and SON of MAN.
The son of God came down, the son of man came up.
If your God is made of wood, stone, or tangible elements, then it is an idol.
Jesus IS different. He is a living God. He was born of a woman ( Mary) but he is also the Son of God. You may not have ever seen Jesus, but you can know he is real. HE IS REAL!
Q: Has God done things in your life?
Q:Have you benefited from the blessing of God?
Stop and realize who Jesus is.
Jesus partook I the social affairs of the community. He attended a wedding.
Wether ministering one on one or to a group, he pointed people toward God.
Every where you find Jesus, he is always bringing glory to the Father.
Jesus showed the nature of God while he was a man.
Q: What is the reason you are in church tonight?
It is because God has a work for you to do.
One time I received a call for a guy who said he needed to talk to me, he sounded drunk. I went down to his house and he was so drunk he may not have known I went to his house. Asked what can I do for you? He said, I need you to tell me about Jesus and how to be saved. I am going to kneel here at my couch and ask Jesus into my life, I just need to know how to pray.... I told him that I will not only help you to pray but tell you about how to be saved. We prayed and asked God to come into his life and to forgive him his sins. Afterwards I asked now what are you going to do? He said I am going to come down to your church on Sunday..... Sunday came and he did not.
Christianity is not a onetime prayer.
No one ever cared for me like Jesus. Only he can forgive you of your sins, only Jesus can save you.
Q: If Jesus were to come tonight would you be ready?
Why is Jesus called the son of man?
1- He was the son of David.
2- He was the seed of Abraham.
He did not just appear as a self made messiah.
“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.” Galatians 3:13-15 KJV
3- He's was the seed of Isaac.
“And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.” Genesis 17:19 KJV
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 KJV
4- He was the seed of Jacob.
“I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.” Numbers 24:17 KJV
WHO IS JESUS?
“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.”
Matthew 2:1-2 KJV
Q: Do you need a healing?
Q: Do you need forgiveness?
Q: Do you need peace?
LOOK TO JESUS, HE STILL IS IN THE MIRACLE BUSINESS.
