Pastor Bobby’s Sermon 22, April, 2017 The Road to Emmaus

20170422_183351

Luke 24:13
That same day: the first of day of the week (v.1)
It is the resurrection Sunday.
Day 1. The beginning of the story of creation.
Day 1. The beginning of the new week, beginning of new creation on the resurrection day.
Where can we find Lord Jesus? It is through the story of the road of Emmaus.

Luke 24:13-16
The two disciples were probably 2 out of 70 disciples.
They were people commissioned to do miracle and preach the kingdom of God.
However, they gave up after crucifixion.
They left Jerusalem, the presence of God
Whenever we are discouraged, we will not move far until Lord Jesus visits us.

Luke 24:16
They did not recognize Lord Jesus.
The problem was with their eyes.
Know = knowing a person, having personal relation with a person.
The disciples did not have personal relationship with Lord Jesus. Hence, they did not recognize Him.
Why were their eyes restrained?

Luke 24:17-26
The disciples expected Lord Jesus to sit on the throne. However, they were disappointed when they saw Him dead. In fact, His body was missing.
In Christ, death is just transition. It is not final or fatal. There is resurrection after death.
When we experience death, we should not give up. Eventually we will rise again in Him.

2 Cor 4:7-11
Even we go through much trial, the resurrection of Christ will eventually manifest.

Their eyes were restrained because they could not understand the concept of death.

Luke 24:15
If we want to see Lord Jesus, we should start having a dialogue with the word of God.

Luke 24:27
He expounded to them in all the Scriptures.
We must love the word of God.

John 14:21, 23
Loving the word of God = hearer and doer of the word of God.

Luke 24:28-29
Where to find Jesus? When we reach out to stranger.
Constrain = compel by employing force.
When we reach out to the lost, we will find Lord Jesus drawing near.
Let’s keep caring for them. Find a need and meet it. Find a hurt and heal it.

Luke 24:30
Where to find Lord Jesus? Sitting/eating together = fellowship with other believers.

Where the presence of Jesus is, there is resurrection life.

Be Anxious for Nothing

Don’t worry about anything;
instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need,
and thank Him for all He has done.
Phil 4:6 (NLT)

There are times whereby our faith seems to shrink and anxiety creeps in.
In this situation, we can always present our worries to God in prayer.

Here lies our most powerful weapon against anxiety: thanksgiving.
When we give thanks to God for His marvelous work in our past, we will feel assured He will do same or even greater work for our present and future.

Remember
He cares for us.

Quick Repentance

9 Why have you despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon.

10 Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.’

11 Thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will raise up adversity against you from your own house; and I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor, and he shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun.

12 For you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel, before the sun.’

13 So David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.” And Nathan said to David, “The Lord also has put away your sin; you shall not die.

14 However, because by this deed you have given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme, the child also who is born to you shall surely die.”

2 Sam 12:13-14

Sometimes, when God forgives, He does not remove the consequence of disobedience.
In the first post, we learn that God punished the Israelites by denying them entry into the Promised Land.
In the second post, we learn that God also punished Moses and Aaron with the same penalty.

In this post, we learn from David’s adultery.
Certainly David repented when Nathan rebuked him.
God forgave David, but God did not remove the punishment of his sin.
The child from adulterous act died no matter how much David prayed for the baby.
In addition, bloodshed ran in his family.
Even his son, Absalom, staged coup de tat against David.

If only David had admitted his sin earlier without causing the death of Uriah, the consequences would not have been this severe!
If only David had listened to his guilty conscience earlier!!

Important lesson.
We must always obey the LORD and quickly repent if we disobey Him.
Otherwise, the consequences will be worse.

Just in case you missed the drama, you can watch it at this link :)

Overview of the Gospel

Dear all :)

Just another sharing from the book What The Bible is All About.

The overview of 4 Gospels:

Matthew
Matthew wrote the Gospel to the Jews who understood the Old Testament.
He showed that Lord Jesus is the King, the long awaited Messiah.
Compared to other Gospel writers, Matthew quoted a lot more prophecies from the Old Testament.
Lord Jesus is the King not by popular ballot but by birth.
Hence, Matthew traced His genealogy back to David: Lord Jesus is David’s descendant and He has the right to claim the throne.
In Matthew, we see a balance between Lord Jesus’ teaching and action as the King.

Mark
Mark wrote the Gospel to the Romans.
Romans were busy business people who emphasized action more than words.
To them, Mark pictured Lord Jesus as the Servant.
Mark omitted His genealogy because, after all, no one is interested with the genealogy of a servant.
Mark did not quote extensively from the Old Testament as Romans did not have background of the Scripture.
Mark wrote about the action of Lord Jesus much more than His words.
In Mark, He is the busy Servant, doing miracles after miracles and serving the community.

Luke
Luke wrote the Gospel to the Greeks who were immersed in poetry and art.
Hence, in the beginning of the book of Luke, we read songs of Zechariah, of Mary and of the angels.
Luke pictured Lord Jesus as the Son of Man
Hence, Luke traced His genealogy back to Adam to show forth His humanity.
Only in Luke we have a glimpse of His childhood.
As 100% human, He sympathizes with human plight. The keyword of His ministry is compassion.
Luke is the Gospel for the outcast of the earth.
In it, we find the story of the good Samaritan, the publican, the prodigal son, Zaccheus and the thief on the cross

John
John wrote this Gospel to the general public.
During his time, many denied Jesus’ deity.
John countered this framework by showing that He is God in human flesh.
This claim is supported by 7 witnesses and 7 miracles.
John omitted Lord Jesus’ genealogy as God has no human genealogy.
Instead, John wrote, "In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with God and the Word was God."
In fact, it is His claim to be equal with God which infuriated the Jews, hence they accused Him of blasphemy and demanded His crucifixion.
