Another Different Suday Sermon

  Today my sermon will not be on a passage but on how God can show us he is there in something you might even learn in a common social studies class.
    In social studies I am sure if not everyone, most people, have learned that the Earth rotates around the sun. However at the beginning not everyone knew that. At the beginning most people thought that the Earth was the center of the Milkyway galaxy. Most people thought that all the other planets rotated around the Earth.
   Now you're probably thinking, 'What does that have to do with Christ?' Well, imagine that Earth is you, the sun is God, and other people are the other planets. Some people think that everyone, including God, go off them. Everything is about them, the whole Milkyway galaxy is about them! But it turns out that it is not!!! And that God is the center and everything is related and about God! That includes a simple social studies lesson. Now I know that this was a short sermon but I would really like you to think over the week about who really is the center. And if you really are as important as you think you are.
                                                                                                  Thank you!

my Sunday Sermon(Luke 23)

23 Then the whole assembly rose and led him off to Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying, “We have found this man subverting our nation. He opposes payment of taxes to Caesar and claims to be Messiah, a king.”
So Pilate asked Jesus, “Are you the king of the Jews?”
“You have said so,” Jesus replied.
Then Pilate announced to the chief priests and the crowd, “I find no basis for a charge against this man.”
But they insisted, “He stirs up the people all over Judea by his teaching. He started in Galilee and has come all the way here.”
On hearing this, Pilate asked if the man was a Galilean. When he learned that Jesus was under Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time.

     This is the passage I will be writing about today. As you can see it is about Jesus and him being arrested. This is sort of in the middle of the story but it focuses on Pilate and how he finds no charge against Jesus. Pilate asks Jesus a very simple question, "are you the king of the Jews?" And the simple answer is 'yes' but Jesus says, 'you say so' which I have the question, why say that instead of yes?  However, I have the answer to that now. It is because the Jews say the son of God is the king of the Jews. Jesus only calls himself that a few times. So the Jews call the son of God king of the Jews, so Jesus is saying(when he says "you say so") that I am the son of God. However, Pilate does not have a religion at this point so it  does not matter to him that he is saying he is the son of man, so finds nothing wrong (or worth charging for) with him. And yet the people hate him, so Pilate does not know what to do. However, Jesus is Galilean, so Pilate sends him somewhere else, and someone else to take care of him. As we head towards Easter we should think about this.

Answers

The reason the sermon below was titled "My last sermon" is because I am taking next week off so I will not post anything next week.

My last sermon

   23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.


     This little phrase from Romans3:23-24. I personally love this verse, and highly suggest you memorize it. None of us are perfect but as you can see in this verse God forgives you. He gave his one and only son to let us be forgiven even though Satan has taken over us many times.
  16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. Jonh 3:16
Sometimes I think that we hear that he came back so many times that we don't realize how amazing that is! That someone can die and come back when there was prof that he was dead! It really is amazing. And yet he still loves us, even though we killed his son. Even though this was short, that is my sermon, 
                                           Thank you!

A DIFFERENT Sunday Sermon

      Today I will not be teaching on a passage but on a true story that relates to Christianity. This is the story... We were turning on the light  on the stairs and it didn't turn on. So, your first reaction is the light bulb is dead, right. So we change the light bulb and it still doesn't turn on! We take out the light bulb, it is a good light bulb, so why doesn't it work? Well, Turns out that that switch is connected to another one. Which means that if that other one is on the other one can't turn on the light! And guess what, the other one was on! So, we went through all that trouble to realize that the other switch was on!

   So, I bet most of you are wondering how I make a sermon off this. Well, sometimes God is just like the light bulb, bright, useful, everywhere, and probably the most used electronic on earth.  So, sometimes if we find that God didn't help us in a certain thing that we prayed for, well sometimes(not all people) we think he isn't there for us anymore and go through all the trouble of looking for a different religion( looking for a light bulb to replace it with) until we realize that God was there, he just didn't do what we had hoped he would do. So we went through all that trouble to realize that we actually wanted that light bulb! So, the lesson here is don't think that God is not there for you when he just didn't do what you wanted. That is my DIFFERENT Sunday Sermon,
                                                  Thank you!

My fourth Sermon

             “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you[a] this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.
20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.

        This is the passage I will be preaching on today! The reason I picked this passage to teach is because it is so inspiring, it says "I will come!" And he will. And after all these years he will come and teach, he will share the tree of life, and he will rejoice! He will come so, don't just sand there hoping he'll come another day! Get out and preach spread the word to thousands, become that big mustered tree that he explained! Because when he comes back he wants to be welcomed back with gladness and people obeying!(at least I think) So go out and mack thousands of disciples. And well, to motivate to you all who do not obey will be throw outside like dogs and will have the gnashing of teeth. However the spirit wants us to come in, that is why he gives us second chances and forgives us. So I have a challenge for you this week. If you know someone who does not know Christ please tell them this week about Christ.        That will be it thank you!

my Sunday Sermon

14 Then one of the Twelve—the one called Judas Iscariot—went to the chief priests 15 and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty pieces of silver. 16 From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over.

The Last Supper

17 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”
18 He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
20 When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. 21 And while they were eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.”
22 They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, “Surely you don’t mean me, Lord?”
23 Jesus replied, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. 24 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”
25 Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, “Surely you don’t mean me, Rabbi?”
Jesus answered, “You have said so.”
26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”
27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
30 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial

31 Then Jesus told them, “This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written:
“‘I will strike the shepherd,
    and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’[b]
32 But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.”
33 Peter replied, “Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will.”
34 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.”
35 But Peter declared, “Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you.” And all the other disciples said the same.

Gethsemane

36 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.”
39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Couldn’t you men keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter. 41 “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
42 He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.”
43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing.
45 Then he returned to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour has come, and the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!”






This is the sermon I will be teaching on today. So at the begging of this passage I started out this sermon with Judas betraying Jesus. And the reason I picked this passage to teach on is because there is so much sin this, and not that we don't sin but but we should know the sins so hopefully don't make those mistakes. so here I'll name the sins for you. 1 we start out with a sin which is betraying Jesus, and well I think most of us know who did that sin, Judas. 2 Judas lies and says that he did not betray him, but obviously Jesus could see right through it. 3 Jesus goes to the garden and prays, commanding for them to watch over him, but they fell asleep. That is a easy sin to make, to fall asleep. How many of you have siting in a restaurant and someone asked you to watch their stuff your like OK, then you go back to talking. Yeah, I think a lot of you have done that. Well I think this is the same thing except its at midnight and your asked to watch the son of God. So I think it might make it harder and easier. So lets  talk about Judas's mistake. And don't think I'm a Hippocratic because I'm saying don't sin when I sin also, I'm tell myself everything too. So in the bible this is a big mistake, that Judas Betray Jesus, for one he got Jesus Killed, for two he sorta got a rip off if if you know what I mean, like at least get more money for the son of God!(a joke) So after Judas sees what hes done he realizes that it was a giant mistake and hangs himself. However it happens that Gods plane was for Jesus to get killed so that we can all be forgiven. So if your reading please know that you'll always be forgiven.     That is the end so thank you for reading!
