Cg Sermon 26, February, 2016 The Treasure of God

The love of Christ is the reason He died for us.
How much is our worth? We are worth Christ Himself.
Heb 2:1-11
The word spoken through angels: the Law.
Moses channelled the message to the Israelites and there was no direct access to God.
Great salvation: direct access to God. How do we appreciate this access to God?

God does not subject the next world to the angels.
He subjects it to the humans.
In the next world, God will hold us accountable on how we manage our talents.
Many times we envy angels. However, angels are just ministering spirits.

Why does God create humans?
God wants to have relationship and fellowship with humans.
Currently we no longer have dominion over the earth as Adam failed and sinned.
Eventually when Lord Jesus comes back, He will recapture that dominion.

During his earthly life, He was a little lower than the angels.
After His resurrection, He received all the glory.
In the future, we will have the same body as Lord Jesus has.

Ephesians 2:6
We are seated with Christ.
Things Christ could do, we can do too.
If we are ignorant, we are short-changing ourselves.
There are many things we can do even without the help from a pastor.

We were oppressed but now we are His brothers and sisters.

Why did Christ have to come?
Because we are flesh and blood. He became flesh and blood to save us.
He also came to destroy the devil as humans are afraid of death.
In the heart of heart, humans realize there is life after death.

Since we have direct access to God, we need to hear from God.
Message from CG leader and pastor should serve as confirmation.
We then need to spend time with God every day.

Since He has paid every one in full, we need to share the Gospel with those who do not know the Lord yet.

Apologetic of the Day: God’s Existence

Question:
How do you know God exists?

Answer:
Life itself is the evidence that God exists.
Two theories on the origin of life.
First, according to atheists, life arose by itself from some chemical soup.
Second, according to Christians, God directly created life.
Despite decades of research, no atheistic scientists have been to show experimentally that life could arise by itself.
In fact, it is one of their biggest frustrations, if you google it.
Setting aside technical details, the first theory actually violates chemistry, as pointed out by many Christian scientists.
Since even the smallest and simplest cell is too complex to arise by itself, belief in the first theory is the blind faith whereas belief in the Creator God is the logical faith.

Well, I believe God is writing my love story too ~~

Apologetics of the Day: Resurrection

Question.
According to science, dead people do not raise.
How do you know Jesus really rose from the dead?

Answer.
We know it from history and logic.
Historically, the disciples were the eyewitnesses of His resurrection.
They were willing to be butchered, slaughtered and died agonizing death to proclaim it.
Logically, if they had fabricated such story of resurrection, would they really have been willing to suffer for a lie?
Surely, no sane people will do that.
Hence, Jesus’ resurrection is a real event in history.
