3/26/2006 ~ What it Means to Preach Christ
The Story of Christ needed to be told,
It had been told hundreds of years prior to His coming.
Only One would meet the profile.
... to the slaughter; And as a lamb before its shearer is silent ... ~ Acts 8:26-35
... He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; ...
~ Isaiah 53:1-12
Who is Jesus?
Described as a loser, not attractive.
→ Jesus died for sinners
→ Jesus was for life and its’ advancement
Jesus was successful in life without exception.
Humans are bumbling failures.
People hide things, make up for things gone astray.
→ He became LIFE for us.
~ Eunuch needed help – wanted to be right with God.
The answer is understandable...
... and preached Christ to them. And the multitudes with one accord heeded
... ~ Acts 8:4-12
For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body ...
~ 1st Corinthians 12:13
... unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom ...
~ John 3:5
... "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." ... ~ Acts 8:36-39
He taught of a new life, a new birth rising through belief and baptism.
What should I do to be in Christ?
→ Baptism is just the beginning.
Jesus is not just the Savior but He is also Lord.
No One is more important.
