Today’s sermon was delivered by pastor Massoud Sadeghi. He looked at answering three questions:
1) Who are we?
2) What do we possess?
3) What are we capable of doing?
Pastor Massoud Sadeghi then continued to discuss the answers. Here is a summary of his sermon:
Interestingly enough, these three questions are common amongst all people of the world. People’s lives center around the answer to these three questions.
Let’s answer these three questions for the believers in Christ. Let’s look at IICor 5:17. The Bible says that anyone born again in Christ has unlimited life, unlimited power and unlimited blessings and wealth in Jesus Christ. In Jesus we are capable of doing anything. If one’s life is in Jesus, that person has many privileges. We are God’s children and as His children we have previliges that others don’t.
In Col. 1:13, we read that you are free of all chains and bondage in this world. You are free to sow and reap in freedom and you will receive His blessings abundantly. What ever you touch, what ever you put your mind to, through Jesus Christ, you will sow many rewards and benefits, so vast that you can not collect it all. When a believer realizes that we’re free from Satan’s harm and realize that Jesus paid for our sins, we know that we are free of sins and free from Satan’s grip. Read Gal. 5:1. Yes, you are free and should not let others put the yoke of sin and bondage on you. We should proclaim: I have everything in Jesus; I can do anything in Him. Freedom is the number 1 thing that people around the world need.
Since Jesus is the captain that pilots your life, there is nothing to be afraid of or to worry about! God’s grace is enough for us to meet any challenge or difficulty. God’s Grace is all that we need to receive His blessings, peace and prosperity. God created us by giving us this eternal life. He breathed His spirit in us when he created humans. God intended that we have eternal life. (Read Col. 1:15, Genesis 2:7).
God has created everyone of us by His own hand. God crafted and shaped each and everyone of us by His own hands. We are His creations formed in His image. Knowing this fact, our views of each other must change as we should view one another as the handicraft of God. Read John 15:5 – Did you know that you are under the protection of Jesus’ blood? Did you know that you will bring vast harvest. (Look at Hebrews 7:25 then Romans 8:33 and Phil 3:19). Jesus is there and prepared to always make intercession for us. Jesus always lives to see that our rights and salvation are protected. God even fights for us, for His children. He fights for our behalf. In Him, we can reach the wonderful promises that He has given us. He will satisfy all of your needs and gives you blessings beyond our imagination and beyond any limits. Amen.
