This week's Sermon
This week's sermon was from Matthew 5:17, "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil."
There are two commandments that Jesus gave. The first commandment was "you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind" and second, "You shall love you neighbour as yourself". These two commandments in themselves fulfill the law. If we love God with all our heart soul and mind, we will not have any other gods before Him, we will not make carved images for ourselves, we will not take the Lord our God's name in vain and we will worship him on the Sabbath day. If we love our neighbour, we would not want to inflict any harm on them, so it can be assumed that we would not commit murder, or adultery, we would not steal or bear false witness. If we truly love God, would we not naturally wan to be obedient out of our love for Him? Should we not as Christians want to walk in obedience to His ways? Yes, Jesus came to save us, and this is a free gift that we cannot earn, but in response to that gift is it not our calling as Christians to work to be obedient to all of God's word. We know that we cannot do this without the help of the Holy Spirit, but we also need to stop making excuses and raise the bar. It was not easy for Abraham to leave everything he had behind and move to a new country, or easy when he was asked to place Isaac his son on the alter as an the offering, but he obeyed. It was not easy for Noah to build an Ark, when there had not been a single drop of rain, imagine the ridicule and mocking he had to withstand, but he pushed forward with his faith and was obedient to God and saved his family. It was not easy for Moses to lead the Israelites out of Egypt and wonder around in the desert for 40 years, but because of His obedience the Israelites were able to enter the promised land. When God calls us, we need to be obedient, if he promises us something it will happen, but we have to be obedient. If God calls us to be worship leader, pastor, preacher, teacher or a leader in the Church, you have to be obedient. All the prophets listened to God and obeyed him, and the Spirit of God was with them wherever they went. Just as His Holy Spirit is able to guide us more and more as we become obedient to his directions. The Bible says, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy one is understanding."(Proverbs 9:10) This fear is a reverence for God out of our love for Him and should urge us to obey. Faith without obedience is dead. Let us rise up as Christians, deny yourselves and take up the cross everyday - live for Jesus - let people see Him shine through us so that they want to get to know Him. Matthew 28"19-20
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the
Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the
very end of the age.”
