The Meaning of Easter

      19860330 The Meaning Of Easter - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

Oh #HappyDay!  Why do we celebrate #Easter?  Imagine the depths of #dejection felt by the followers of Jesus Christ when He died on the cross.  But, it was necessary to God’s ultimate plan for saving humanity.  For three days, what kind of doubt and humiliation did the disciples endure?  But, with the Resurrection, Jesus Christ conquered sin and death.  Praise God!  What does it mean for us?  What does it mean for our sin and even our temptations?  What does it mean about the consequences of our death?  What kind of power does that resurrection make available to us right now?

Blood Sacrifice

The LIVING GOD #SWEAT

#GOD did become #human through #Jesus Christ!  Do we think that much about GOD experiencing our humanity?  Talk about a humbling encounter for GOD.  He experienced pain, labor, hunger, rejection, lies, anger and ridicule – yet, He showed love through it all.  As Jesus went into the garden of Gethsemane that evening to pray to God, his father, He had all the weight of our sins upon Him.  Luke 22:42 “Father, if Thou art willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Thine be done.  An angel from heaven appeared unto Him, strengthening  Him.  being in agony He was praying very fervently, and HIS SWEAT BECAME LIKE DROPS OF BLOOD, falling down on the ground.”  The chief priests, officers of the temple and elders arrested Jesus and after torture had Him crucified.  Jesus Christ loved us so much He willing gave himself as a sacrifice to die for our sins.  Heb.9:22 “According to the Law, one may say all things are cleansed with blood, without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin”   “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.” Rom. 5:8,9

The Unpardonable Sin

      19880710pm The Unpardonable Sin - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

What is the one #sin that God will not #forgive?   Well, quizzically it is not the ones getting the most #headlines these days.  In fact, even the stories about this sin are not about the sin and its horrible consequences, but rather about the personality espousing it and their right to hold said position.  Would a loving God really refuse to forgive because of something we do?  What decision, if truly made, prevents committing this sin?  How can you know if you have committed this sin?

The LIVING GOD #FLIES

Many moons ago, I walked morning to elementary school and back home afternoons (a mile each way) on the High Plains of the #Texas Panhandle where the wind bl-o-ws!  I remember having a recurrent childhood dream of being pushed by the wind and then I would lift my legs and be carried on the wind over my house thereby lowering my legs to walk up the steps to my front door.  Swift & Neat.  Yes, that was my childish wish/dream, but God’s Word tells us of His wonders beyond even our comprehension in 2015.  “The LORD reigns, let the people tremble: He is enthroned above the cherubim…”Ps.99:1  “He bowed the heavens also and came down and darkness was under His feet.  HE rode upon a cherub, and DID FLY, and HE DID FLY ON THE WINGS OF THE WIND.”  Ps.18:9,10

The Way To Walk

      19820314pm The Way To Walk - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

You may not remember it, but if you are now ambulatory, you once had to #learn how to #walk.  A #Christian has to be born again and therefore has to learn to walk all over again.  Should we try to copy Jesus Christ?  Should we try really hard to be good?  How does acceptance differ from obedience and how often is each required?  What is involved in walking with Jesus Christ?  And like a toddler, there are adventures we cannot even imagine that will come only when we have learned to walk in Christ.
