Rest Assured in Jesus' Prayer Rest Assured in Salvation Because Jesus Prayed for You (Assurance of Salvation)
When you think of the duties of a priest, particularly after what we've learned about them over the last two weeks, you probably do not think of extreme sorrow and loud crying with tears. I compared a priest to a lawyer and a plumber. Those professions have their share of difficulty, but one does not think of plumbers as being emotional wrecks. Yet our text this morning describes Christ's priestly activity in terms of lamentation and suffering, and not just any lamentation and suffering. He prayed and supplicated with loud cries and tears. He learned obedience by what He suffered. And through His sufferings, He became the source of eternal salvation. One would almost think that the writer has moved on from talking about the priestly work of connecting man to God, and that he is now rehashing the crucifixion. Obviously he is rehashing the crucifixion. But the frame around the passage — "high priest" in vv. 1 & 10 — makes it clear that he is still very much talking about Jesus' role as priest. In other words, in addition to the fairly vanilla stuff in vv. 1-6, we must understand the soul-and-body-separating suffering recounted in vv. 7-9 as further description of what Jesus did as our priest. We have to recognize that in addition to offering the sacrifice, our great high priest was the sacrifice. He did not just kill the lamb; He was the lamb, the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. As that suffering Lamb slain, He prayed, He learned, and He saved.
Paul's & Barnabas Accountability to the Local Church_10 Acts 14:21-28 There is terrible neglect in both evangelism and strengthening the church. Paul and Barnabas spent a long time in Antioch reviving their spirits, and no doubt they were also ministering to the believers.there are two great ministries in the church.The of preaching the gospel and making disciples, and that of strengthening the church. Strengthening and making true disciples of believers are much more difficult than leading them to Christ. The true believer passes through many trials and afflictions while entering into the Kingdom of God. Paul and Barnabas were busy, as busy as they could be moving about and preaching the Word. They were just as busy in following up and strengthening the churches as they had been in establishing them.when Paul and Barnabas returned to the mother church of Antioch.The church was called together for the most glorious missionary meeting imaginable, the very first missionary report ever given to a mother church.Ministers, preachers, and missionaries—all are to be mere instruments in the hand of God.
If Paul and Silas hadn't of been locked in prison and beaten those that were saved that night and baptized wouldn't have been. If we will surrender our will to God things can happen in our lives, we couldn't even imagine. What are we willing to give in our lives to people saved. When things go wrong in our lives do we sing praises to God, or do we have pity parties? God doesn't honor pity parties.
Ninety-Three year old Alwyn Williams speaks at the Newcastle Baptist Tabernacle about the Welsh Revival. Alwyn's father saw the effects of revival, whilst working as a miner in the United Kingdom in the beautiful country of Wales. "Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation" (Psalm 85.6-7)
Paul's FIRST MISSIONARY JOURNEY PT1 Acts 13:1-3Beginning in chapter 13 of Acts you have the called the foreign mission section of the book of Acts. The central character among the followers of Christ up to this time has been the apostle Peter. Beginning in Acts chapter thirteen, we come to know more and more of the life and ministry of the apostle Paul. God's work has been centered on one people, the Jews; but now, the Word goes forth to all people, just as God intended for it to do. The church started with Christ and His disciples and was empowered at Pentecost. Christ commissioned His church to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.These were people who spoke the Word of God with boldness.In our day, we have the completed revelation of God's Word, the Bible, in our hands. This means from the conclusion of the first century until this present moment in time, there has been no new foretelling of things to come. We believe what has been foretold, what is yet to take place, and we are involved in forth telling the things of God in holy boldness as we preach God's Word. When the apostle Paul, known as Saul of Tarsus, was saved on the road to Damascus, it was Barnabas who befriended Saul and recommended him to the apostles. They thought, no doubt, that Paul might be just a spy, someone trying to find out what they were doing and seeking to bring great persecution to them. After all, Paul was the one who executed the orders to stone Stephen to death. He held the cloaks of those who threw the stones. It was quite a thing that Barnabas did to influence the other apostles to welcome this converted persecutor into the fellowship of believers.

Positioned for Great Grace Good morning friends... I pray each of you has a rich day that overflows with much joy and gladness. As I was digging into the precious word of God this morning, this phrase, "And great grace was upon them all..." (Acts 4:33), stood out to me. And I wanted to take a little time, throughout the day, and share with you some things I gleaned about this great grace. The word great is often used to describe something as big, mighty, or even mega... So that's how I want to look at this unique time when God granted His servants "mega grace." And because the Scriptures identify it as something "mega" in comparison to the normal aspect of sufficient grace I think it's worth paying attention to. I believe two things about this outpouring of mega grace: 1⃣ It is obvious that this was what God wanted to do... they had mega power and mega grace upon them. This, no doubt, was the work of God upon them and was given by His will. 2⃣ They, the disciples, were in a position or I should say, positioned themselves to QUALIFY for this unleashing of mighty power and mighty grace. Like a piano... a piano that's out of tune would not qualify to be used by a concert pianist. Even though it may be the piano of choice... no wise pianist would choose to display their gift through an out-of-tune instrument. That same piano of choice would have to be tuned before it could be used for such a special occasion. These humble servants were obviously in tune with their Creator and King... and He chose to grant them great grace. I need this great grace, I want this mega grace... How about you? "Qualifiers... that Make Us Candidates for Mega Grace."
WE are at the end of James. James has been writing to a scattered people who are not giving a good testimony. In fact the he has been troubled enough to make sure there were several checks to see if they were in the Lord--if their profession was real. In the end of this chapter he has taught on coming to the elders if you are spiritually sick and that the prayer of faith will save the sick. This should have been a great encouragement to those who are hurting under the lash of the Holy Spirit. Yet he is not done. There is one more encouragement about the forgiveness and greatness of God. Join us as we look at the last four verses of James and see the encouragement that James gives us to pray for those who have wondered.
Main Points Jesus prayed (v. 35). He made time to be alone with His Father. Jesus preached (vv. 36-39, 45). He made His priorities clear. Jesus healed (vv. 40-44). He made a leper clean. Questions Why don't we spend time with God? Why don't we read His Word? Why don't we pray? We don't make time for it. We don't believe that God will accept us.
