I have always been enthused about the river of living water in the last chapter in the Bible, Revelation 22. But, I never have thought about it before, that there is so much comparison and similarity between the living water of the book of the Revelation and that of Ezekiel’s prophecy. This time, our teaching session visits the life giving water and the trees full of life, in chapters 43 and 47 of Ezekiel. Get your spiritual heart cup prepared, and be ready to take a big gulp of the cool, life giving water.
Romans chapter 6 is an interesting portion of God’s word, dealing with everything from salvation, baptism, sanctification, resurrection, and walking in newness of life. It is a most comforting thing to know that not only can we be saved, but that our Lord will help us to sucessfully live the Christian life. Contrary to what you may have heard, been told by people, some of them well-meaning though uninformed, and by even the devil himself, you can live right. You cannot do it in and of yourself, but since Jesus is your new Lord and Master, you’re not depending on yourself anyway. The Bible is there for you, the Holy Spirit is within you, and Jesus and the Father are pulling together as a Father and Son team, to make sure that you can and do live right, and Walk In Newness Of Life.
Most people who know anything about the bible are familiar with the passage in John chapter 10 where Jesus tells the Jews that he is the good shepherd. But, there is also other places in the bible that refer to God being the good shepherd. This Bible teaching session is from one of them, that is, Ezekiel chapter 34. If you are not in God’s pasture and the fold of Christ the good shepherd today, there is no finer time than now to receive Christ as your Savior and make him your Lord. He will lead you in and out, you will be safe and your need will be supplied. He will also make sure that you will be a part of his heavenly flock and fold for ever.
In Ephesians chapter 5, the apostle Paul places special emphasis on our need to be constantly filled and under the influence of the Holy Spirit. Several things are happening and will take place when this is the condition of our lives as believers. This sermon is to encourage the body of Christ to be filled with the spirit.
Some people don’t think God has much to say anymore. Yet, if you would read chapters like Ezekiel 3 and 18, you might think that not only does he speak, but he even gets hung up repeating himself. This Bible teaching session uses these two chapters to make sure that we understand that God cares about what we say, how we act, what we do, and the way in which we live and conduct ourselves.
Sanctification is one of those things that are not talked about much in the church nowadays, but it is important to the Christian life and experience. This sermon focuses on the seven things which are necessary for our sanctification.
Asking a preacher which part of the Bible he likes, is about as much of a no no situation as asking him where he is from. If he is or has been an active minister, you are probably going to get a several point response. While I do try to have a love for all of the word, I must admit that the first chapter of Ezekiel’s prophecy has special impact on my life and Christian experience. I cannot help but either hear or read about the fire in Ezekiel’s revelation of god to him by the river of Chebar, that in simply just doing it, I am affected so much that I usually explode in praise and worship, and usually, tongues are manifested. Whether that is your experience or not is not the important thing. But, you like Ezekiel, need some type of hard core, base foundation and experience with God on which to be able to stand upon, and go back and refer to, especially, when times get hard and things get rough. Our call either to salvation or to a specific ministry, may not have all of the experience of Ezekiel, but it is just as precious to god and just as important to our Christian life. This Bible teaching session covers portions of the first three chapters of the book of Ezekiel.
Every born again believer is part of God’s work of art, his masterpiece, his workmanship. You may feel like you are of little worth in this world, but God has you in his trophy case. And, he will continually show us off before the whole world and universe throughout the endless ages of eternity. This will not bring glory to us, rather, it will constantly serve as a reminder of God’s grace and his kindness toward us, his mercy in redeeming us, and his unfailing love shown toward us through Jesus Christ our Lord. Learn more in this bible sermon from Ephesians chapter 2, with primary focus on verse 10, from where we get our text and title: “We Are His Workmanship.”
