1 Corinthians 15:1-11 | EV Church | 20/01/2013 | Andrew Heard
Death is the end or something happens after this life are mutually exclusive. i.e only one of these statements can be right. The essence of who Jesus was, is bound up on the afterlife. John 11:21-26 Jesus primary purpose wasn't to be a moral teacher, but to be a ransom for many so that they live free in the afterlife for eternity. Mark 10:45 Believing that this life is all there is, leads to a thinking that one should pursue whatever provides the most pleasure, and one that has no morals and no justice. Perhaps we would rather live in the despair of nothing, than to acknowledge God and live under His service. Facing God on judgement day without Jesus' protection, is a fate worse than death. If there is life beyond (as claimed by Jesus), it has very serious ramifications.
Romans 6:15-23 | EV Church | 28/07/2013 | Tim Baldwin
Christ died to sin, so His death is ours. If we are joined with Jesus then His resurrection is ours. Rom 6:15 Paul asks "If Gods grace is so powerful to forgive any sin, then why does it matter whether we change?" You are a slave to whatever you obey. God has laid claim to us, so it's natural to want to obey & desire God with thanksgiving - rejoicing to be a 'slave of God' Just because we have experience of sitting under flawed authority, it shouldn't cause us to assume that getting out from under authority is freedom. We were designed to sit under authority and true freedom comes from sitting under good authority. Being united with Christ, lets us see becoming slaves of God being good and living in true freedom. We have become free to serve God in whatever circumstances we are faced with, free to share the gospel, caring for people's spiritual needs, free to be content in Christ.
