The Book Jesus Trusted

Tagged With: / The Power of the Book You Can Trust

As an eight year old, I will always remember learning one word in the sign language of the deaf—the Bible was the “Jesus” (signed by nail prints in hands) “Book” (signed by hands, palms together and then opening like a book)”.

What a perfect way to portray, describe, and express the truth of God’s Word. Our Bibles really are, and should always be to us: the Jesus Book.

The Jesus Book

While here on Earth Jesus lived out the God’s Word, spoke God’s Word, used the God’s Word, and affirmed God’s Word. Central to we believe is this Jesus Book. In fact, after Christ’s Resurrection He came back and taught a small class on “How to Understand the Bible”, He had two students and a recording of His lesson remains for us in Luke 24. As we open there, listen as Jesus explains to ordinary people, the extraordinary content of the Book we hold in our hands today. Luke 24:25-45:

The Implications of Christ’s Convictions About Science, History & Prophecy

Tagged With: / The Power of the Book You Can Trust

What standard do we use to measure proper handling of the Bible? Whenever we use the Bible one standard we should always seek to gage if we are doing so correctly. The standard is how Jesus used God’s Word. 

This morning as we open to John 1:1-18, we need to consider the implications of Christ’s convictions about the Word of God, because:

Jesus has the
Highest View of Scripture

The Implications of Christ’s Convictions About Salvation

Tagged With: / The Power of the Book You Can Trust

This morning as we open to John 3:16, one of the best known verses in the Bible, we also open to just one of over 100+ different times the New Testament records the good news of salvation, or the Gospel, being explained. 

While turning to John 3, see if you can repeat with me the best know verse in the Bible. Here we go:

“For God….so loved…” 

Yes, there you have it—the best know verse in the Bible; and starting at this passage  we are considering the implications of Christ’s convictions about salvation. 

God is Pro-Life – Citizens of Heaven Expose the Dark Evils of Abortion and Declare the Power of Christ’s Forgiveness

Tagged With: / The Power of the Book You Can Trust

Please open with me to Philippians 3:14-21.

Each of us who have had a spiritual heart transplant (Ezekiel 36:26-27), and have been born again (John 3), and have become a temple (I Corinthians 6:19-20) that the Living God lives in—are also now citizens of Heaven. 

This morning, as citizens of Heaven, we have a duty God has given us to expose evil. But as we expose evil in our world we live in, we are also to declare Christ’s power to liberate and forgive sinners.

The Book You Can Trust – Start Some Holy Habits

Tagged With: / The Power of the Book You Can Trust

This morning, as we open to II Corinthians 6, let me remind you that: each of us, are creatures of habit.

Habits shape our lives; and little by little, our habits are cementing us into a form that will someday be finished, revealing us for who we really were.

William James (1842-1910), in his classic Principles of Psychology (1890), put it this way:

Could the young but realize how soon they will become mere walking bundles of habits, they would give more heed to their conduct while in the plastic state.  We are spinning our own fates, good or evil, and never to be undone.  Every smallest stroke or virtue or vice leaves its ever so little scar.  

Close the Door to the Devil

Tagged With: / The Power of the Book You Can Trust

When Jesus faced off with the Devil His weapons were simple—three carefully chosen verses from God’s Holy Word. As we open to Revelation 2, we find that same Jesus writing to a church that had learned the same lesson—how to use God’s Word to overcome and resist the devil, his demons, and their own flesh.

As we open to these verses we are reading Christ’s 1st personal letter to a church. In this letter He commends a group of believers who followed Paul’s teaching and Christ’s example of how to resist the devil at every level in life. We need to pause and ask about what kind of people were these Jesus wrote to at:

Ephesus in the
First Century 

What Bible Did Jesus Use?

Tagged With: / The Power of the Book You Can Trust

If you were put on the spot and hundreds of eyes and ears were on you and you were asked to give THE reason why you know the Bible is true—what would you say? That question is best answered by remembering what Jesus said in the same situation.

As we open to Matthew 5:18, we are listening to Jesus starting His public ministry. At that huge gathering, called the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus confidently told all the thousands who heard Him speak—that Heaven and Earth would pass away before any word of His Bible failed. Wow, He sure knew He had a Bible He could trust. Jesus didn’t fear that there were any historical, moral, theological, and scientific inaccuracies in His Bible. He had a copy of the Book anyone can Trust!
