Authentic Christianity Sermon Series
Authentic Christian I – Jesus is Lord.
(Gal. 2:20 & 2 Cor. 5:14-15)
Unhappy? Stressed? Anxious? Afraid? Without peace and joy??
It is probably because you’re trying to be in control, and on the “driver’s seat” once again.
We were never created to be independent, but dependent upon God for everything.
What is that one thing, area, person, or issue that you just cannot let go of?
God is probing your heart to “Let go, and let God.”
The true Christian life is a life in which Jesus is Lord. He is King.
That means I am not in control, but He is!
“I have been crucified with Christ.”
Did you ever see a corpse getting stressed? Anxious? Angry? Bitter?
No!! Never!!! So then, why are you?
When you’re dead with Christ, it is no longer about you, but about Him.
We are dead to (1) Sin/Darkness (2) “Self-life”
Therefore, “the life I now live in the body is for the One who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
Yield every single part of your day and life to Him (e.g., relationship, business, health, future, finances, studies, weaknesses, strengths, etc.)
Trust in Him, and enthrone Jesus in every area.
Then just continue to walk with Him, clinging to Him and trusting in Him.
This is our daily calling.
Living a life that proclaims Jesus as Lord, and yielding to Him.
Say, “Yes” to Him this morning, no matter what He says.
He knows what’s best for you.
This does not make us lazy, but allows us to give our very best in all that we do with a joyful heart of trust and obedience and assurance that I am in His will.
As you surrender your all to Jesus today,
you will find your wrinkles between your eyebrows, turning into a smile.
You will possess a SHALOM-PEACE that the world cannot understand nor take away.
Let's be that strong and unshakable disciple.
This is the normal Christian life -- the only reasonable way of life in response to the amazing grace of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
JESUS IS LORD.
